CorrosionX

CorrosionX is specially formulated to displace moisture, stop corrosion instantly and provide long-lasting protection. Using the latest advances in Fluid Thin Film Coating (FTFC) technology, CorrosionX disrupts the corrosion process in two ways:

  1. Its excellent penetrating abilities initially serve to displace any moisture already present and,
  2. POLAR BONDS with metal, leaving an ultra-thin dielectric film that disrupts the flow of electrons, necessary for oxidation to occur. It also prevents electrolysis between dissimilar metals for long-lasting rust and corrosion protection.

As its natural tendency is to bond with metal, CorrosionX creeps in all nooks and crannies to protect inaccessible parts and not very much product is needed. It leaves a non-hardening, self-curing, resilient film coating that is barely visible. Little is wasted, and no valuable weight is added, especially to airframe. Unlike the waxy barrier coatings or passive sealants which over time add weight and can actually hide flaws that may progress unseen.

Besides, the fluid thin film coating will not attract dust or other contaminants.

Reapply annually or sooner depending upon exposure to the elements.

The US Military has tested all types of anti-corrosion products under real-world conditions. They are very impressed with the performance of CorrosionX, and its use by the military and other government agencies continues to grow very quickly. CorrosionX simply works better. It is the only product qualified under the Mil-C81309G, Type II that's not a barrier coating.
The durability of CorrosionX varies depending upon the environment at which the treated item is exposed to. Typically, CorrosionX applied to metal which is not directly exposed to the elements (such as to the back of an instrument panel) can last over a year. Exposed surfaces will typically last 6 months or so. Protected areas can last longer.
No. It will not stain or etch paint, nor will it harm plastic, acrylic or rubber. The only exception is butyl (natural) and silicone types of rubber, which may swell when subject to CorrosionX. A good rule of thumb is that, if a material is affected by fuel or oil, CorrosionX should be used with caution.
CorrosionX penetrates and neutralizes oxidation and displaces moisture – often restoring circuitry. Spray it onto power sources, switches, fuse panels, antenna basses, pins and connectors to prevent corrosion or moisture contamination.

With a dielectric of more than 39,000 volts/mil, CorrosionX can be applied to control panels, circuit boards and switches. Eliminates problems caused by atmospheric conditions that result in corrosion. In many cases, CorrosionX will revive electronic equipment EVEN AFTER SALTWATER IMMERSION!

Note: When treating electronic gear, avoid LCDs and membrane switches

CorrosionX is an excellent lubricant, suitable for electric motors, fishing reels, engines...nearly anything that moves! Corrosion X has Extreme Pressure (EP) qualities which permit it to operate effectively as a lubricant under high pressure loads and high temperatures. Bearings, davits, sheaves and windlasses stay lubricated longer and operate smoother. CorrosionX reduces heat and friction – increasing efficiency and extending the useful life of machinery parts. Apply an ample amount of Corrosion X to provide both corrosion protection and lubrication.

Caution: Do not use on friction-operated devices such as belts, clutches, brakes, etc.

  • Clean the surfaces to be treated.
  • Wire brush away heavy rust and loose scale.
  • Spray on, brush or wipe on with a piece of cloth, a thin, even coat of CorrosionX onto the metal surfaces.
  • Apply a second application on heavily corroded parts.
  • Re-apply every six months to two years or more as necessary, depending on the environment.
  • Avoid LCDs and membrane switches on electronics.
  • Do not use on friction-operated devices such as belts, clutches, brakes, etc.
    Corrosion X provides superior long-lasting corrosion protection as compared to penetrating oils available in the market. In addition, it is a highly effective lubricant and penetrates quickly into the tightest seams and joints. More significantly, it is electronic safe and environmentally friendly. These qualities are unmatched in the market today!

    STOPS OR PREVENTS CORROSION AND PROVIDES LONG-TERM PROTECTION

    CorrosionX is produced using the latest advances in Fluid Thin Film Coating (FTFC) technology. It POLAR BONDS with metal, leaving an ultra-thin film that displaces corrosion-causing electrolytes (moisture in most cases) and prevents electrolysis between dissimilar metals for long-lasting rust and corrosion protection.

    As its natural tendency is to bond with metal, CorrosionX creeps in all nooks and crannies to protect inaccessible parts and leaves a non-hardening, self-curing, resilient film coating that is barely visible. Little is wasted.

    SUPERIOR LONG-LASTING LUBRICANT

    Corrosion X is an extreme pressure rated lubricant that sticks to metal like a magnet and cannot be displaced by moisture or friction. It operates effectively as a lubricant under high pressure loads and high temperatures. Bearings, davits, sheaves and windlasses stay lubricated longer and operate smoother. CorrosionX reduces heat and friction – increasing efficiency and extending the useful life of machinery parts. Apply an ample amount of Corrosion X to provide unmatched lubricity and long-term wear protection.

    (Caution: Do not use on friction-operated devices such as belts, clutches, brakes, etc.)

    UNBEATABLE ANTI-SEIZE

    PENETRATES into the tightest seams, lap joints, around rivets and screws to protect against corrosion and facilitate quick and easy disassembly of corroded parts; making it a superior choice for releasing seriously frozen connectors, screws or bolts.

    IMPROVES CONDUCTIVITY. SAFE ON ELECTRONICS

    With a dielectric of more than 39,000 volts/mil, CorrosionX can be applied to control panels, circuit boards and switches. Eliminates problems caused by atmospheric conditions that result in corrosion. In many cases, CorrosionX will revive electronic equipment EVEN AFTER SALTWATER IMMERSION!

    (Note: When treating electronic gear, avoid LCDs and membrane switches)

    ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

    CorrosionX is made of refined oil with several ingredients and contains only 4%-7% volatile organic content (VOC). It is unlike common oils in the market which comprises 76% solvent. That means CorrosionX is many times gentler on you, your equipment and the environment.

    In addition, CorrosionX is nontoxic, non-carcinogenic, and it’s nonflammable when not in aerosol form (our environmentally-friendly propellant is flammable however).

    CorrosionX Aviation

    The treatment takes two hours for a single or light twin. We recommend that aircraft be treated every other year, ideally at the time of annual inspection.
    Treat the airplane after painting. CorrosionX is petroleum-based and paint will not adhere over it. Following treatment, we recommend one year before painting. CorrosionX can be removed for spot painting using a good solvent.
    No. The only way to loosen a properly-gripped rivet is by removing metal around it. If a rivet becomes loose after a CorrosionX treatment, it's because the rivet was surrounded by corroded metal. In that sense, CorrosionX has made you aware of what could be a serious corrosion problem.
    People with a high level of mechanical skill sometimes do. For a thorough treatment, we strongly recommend that our well-designed and affordable Handi-Spray equipment be used. For most people a visit to one of our more than two hundred Treatment Centers nationwide in the United States (11 in the Northwest) is the best course of action. Highly skilled mechanics, with proper training and the right equipment, will accomplish the job quickly and thoroughly.
    After a proper treatment, you will see evidence of the product coming through lap seams and around rivets and screws. That seepage is evidence that CorrosionX is doing its job; it’s pushing moisture out of those tiny spaces and protecting them against future corrosion. CorrosionX is harmless to the paint, and can be wiped off easily.

    Rejex

    Performance

    RejeX sealed vehicles are armored with a tough polymer film coating that’s so non-porous and slick that most contaminants can’t penetrate or stick to it. Bug splats, tree sap, exhaust deposits, bird droppings and other harmful contaminants won’t penetrate RejeX. So, while dust, dirt and other contaminants may still settle on your vehicle, they can’t penetrate the sealant to damage the paint and they sure won’t be able to stick to the RejeX film. Cleaning RejeX’ed vehicles is just that quick and easy. And, the shine will last and last.

    RejeX is not a cleaner. It is important to get your vehicle as clean as possible before applying the product. RejeX leaves a durable protective barrier, but it will seal in stains just as effectively as it seals them out.

    Longevity varies depending on surface preparation, product application and environmental conditions. For best results, attention should be paid to:

    • Surface preparation - surfaces should be cleaned of surface grime, stains and oxidation and dried completely
    • Surface condition – surfaces should be dry, out of direct sunlight and optimally less than 30° C / 85°F
    • Cure time - RejeX should be allowed an initial 10-15 minute cure prior to wiping the haze and an additional 8-12 hour cure to final hardness
    • Storage conditions – vehicles and aircraft stored indoors (garages, hangars) will remain protected longer than those stored in outdoor, adverse conditions
    • Maintenance operations – Washing frequency, washing method and cleaner used
    • Operating conditions – What kind of contaminants is the vehicle exposed to? The more challenging the environment (hail, snow, ice, sand, “love bugs”, etc.); the more frequent RejeX may need to be applied

    Generally, RejeX lasts between 6 and 8 months, although we have numerous reports from customers who say it has lasted over a year. High abrasion areas, like leading edges airplane wings, require more frequent application – perhaps every 3-4 months.

    RejeX is a tough, air-cured, impermeable high-gloss, ultra-slick polymer sealant and finish without UV inhibitors. It provides unmatched protection against surface deterioration; easily outlasting and outperforming most wax-type products. As a result of heightened durability, RejeX lasts longer, shines brighter and protects better than waxes and inferior polymer-based coatings.

     

    Waxes have a limited lifespan as they oxidize and “die” when exposed to light and oxygen. As wax coatings degrade they lose their ability to enhance and protect surfaces from environmental damage.

    Excellent for use on painted surfaces; RejeX retards the oxidation process virtually sealing out water and oxygen. And nothing compares to a RejeX shine! The high light refractive index means that the majority of the light spectrum (including UV radiation) is being rejected from the surface rather than being allowed to penetrate into the paint (or fiberglass, etc.).

    Use it on your car, RV, boat, motorcycle, airplane, helicopter, and 4 wheeler ATV to protect your investment and leave an extraordinary shine

    RejeX is non-abrasive and is not designed to compound or revitalize “dead” oxidized painted surfaces. Compounding products are designed to take off layers of oxidized paint with solvents and abrasives.

    RejeX is effective on all non-porous hard surfaces; it is safe to use on glass, fiberglass, plexiglass, Eisenglass (the clear vinyl windows used on boat canvas and some convertibles) and all clear-coat (gel) finishes.

    RejeX is an air-cured sealant and as it cures a light haze forms at the surface. While no buffing is required to develop the shine, the haze is wiped off after about 10-15 minutes. On porous surfaces, the dried RejeX haze in the pores, cracks and crevices can be difficult to wipe off.

    Although freezing / repeated freezing is certainly not recommended, cold has not demonstrated to be a serious issue. If RejeX should freeze, allow it to thaw naturally to room temperature, then shake thoroughly to recombine. As long as the product looks like a smooth, homogeneous, cream, it’s fine to use.

     

    Storing RejeX in high heat, especially for longer periods of time, is a more serious issue. High heat, such as keeping RejeX in the trunk of your car or in a galvanized steel airplane hanger over a hot summer, can prematurely spoil RejeX. Storing in a detached garage would not be ideal for RejeX, or any (wax or non-wax) product of this type.

    Application

    The RejeX film  is very thin (less than a micron), so a little goes a very long way. For one coat, a 16 oz. bottle should cover:

    • A single engine airplane tip to tail
    • A 25’ boat or RV
    • 2 SUVs or sedans
    • 3 economy or sports cars

    By “out of the elements” we mean to avoid direct sunlight that could heat the application surface excessively. Don’t apply RejeX when there’s a probability of imminent rain. Don't park the vehicle under a tree where sap can drip on it. In short, RejeX is usually applied outdoors. But it’s important to select a good day and apply RejeX in an area where the vehicle is not likely to get stains on it until RejeX has had a chance to cure for at least several hours.
    RejeX is an air-cured sealant and reaches full cure in about 12 hours. The longer it cures, the stronger the finish. Prior to full cure, the film is softer and less protective and longevity can be compromised. Don’t worry if the sealant gets a little wet while it’s curing (e.g. a light sprinkle or dew), that will not be a problem. Do avoid heavy rain, parking the vehicle under a tree where the sap will get on it and driving long distances where exhaust and road grime will get on it. Regardless, RejeX cured even just an hour or two will significantly outlast waxes and inferior polymer coatings.
    Why would you? While RejeX can certainly be applied over wax and give you the benefits of enhanced gloss, superior protection for your paint and rejection of stains (bug splats, exhaust deposits, belly grime, etc.), it’s better to put RejeX right on top of the paint.

     

    Waxes are  softer,  less durable films than RejeX. When RejeX, when put on top of wax is dependent on the wax holding up and wax will degrade long before the RejeX.  When the wax “dies”, the RejeX bonded to the wax will come off. RejeX, when bonded to paint will out shine, out last and out repel wax so why not harness the full potential of the RejeX coating? Get maximum results; use RejeX instead of wax.

    You have to see it to believe it. You bet there is added benefit to applying a second coat. It is important however to ensure RejeX cures fully before apply subsequent coats. A second coat will deepen the lustre and provide more protection. There is however a point of diminishing returns - after about 2-3 coats you’ve gotten all the gloss and protection RejeX can deliver.

    Aviation

    Yes, it's completely safe. In fact, we specifically excluded all polishing compounds and solids from the product so it would be safe and beneficial for aircraft windshields.
    First, we should probably state that Goodyear manufactures a product that they recommend for maintaining their de-ice boots. However, over the years we’ve talked to many pilots who have de-ice boots and hate cleaning bugs off them. So obviously there’s an issue that RejeX can help resolve. RejeX is safe to use on de-ice boots, but whether you want to use it or not really depends on the condition of the boots. If the boots are in good condition, the feedback we've received is that RejeX works very well. As boots age, they weather and tend to get porous. On weathered rubber, RejeX “puddles” in the pores and leaves an unattractive white haze. It’s unsightly, but it won't impair the proper functioning of the boots.
    Apply RejeX to the boots in an inconspicuous spot. If excessive black rubber residue comes off on your application rag, STOP. If the RejeX applies cleanly, you’re in good shape and the RejeX will protect the boots and make them easier to maintain.

    Automotives, Boats

    RejeX sealed vehicles are armored with a tough polymer film coating that’s so non-porous and slick that most contaminants can’t penetrate or stick to it. Hard water deposits (calcium and magnesium salts) and water spots will be greatly reduced and generally wipe right off.
    RejeX won't keep brake dust from accumulating over time, but it does significantly slow the accumulation and makes wheels much easier to clean. Usually a good high pressure spray of water is sufficient to knock off brake dust. Plus RejeX leaves a wicked shine on both chrome, aluminum and alloy wheels.
    It won't keep soot from accumulating over time, but it makes the deposits much lighter and easier to clean. For problem areas like diesel soot, a second application of RejeX is sometimes needed to reject these stains.
    RejeX sealed vehicles are armored with a tough polymer film coating that’s so non-porous and slick that most contaminants can’t penetrate or stick to it. Black streaks, bug splats, tree sap, exhaust deposits, bird droppings and other harmful contaminants won’t penetrate RejeX. So, while the black streaks may collect on your RV, they can’t penetrate the sealant to damage the paint. While it won’t keep them off, cleaning RejeX’ed RVs is just that quick and easy. Like most soils, black marks will rinse off under a garden hose or wipe off with a wet rag.
    RejeX, when used on the front and/or leading edges provides great protection and makes clean-up, especially of bug splats, easier. To make bug removal easy, some people start using RejeX on the front of their cars and RVs, and on the leading edges of aircraft. However, once they appreciate the protection afforded by RejeX and see the deep, reflective finish, they can’t resist doing the whole vehicle.
    Yes, while the Diamond Plate shield is very good for protecting paint from small rocks and other particles that can chip paint, it is quite difficult to clean bugs (and other contaminants) off it. Customers swear by RejeX’s super-slick formula for making clean-up easier and for keeping their RVs looking great.
