ASCOTRAN® (Anti-flash rust)

Anti-flash rust additives

Metal sheet forming machine at the modern metalwork factory

Product Overview

ASCOTRAN® anti-flash-rust inhibitors protect metal substrates from instantaneous corrosion that appears during the application and drying of aqueous coatings. These products offer short-term protection by blocking oxidation at the metal surface. Can and aerosol protection is another major application for these products; working for both aqueous- and solvent-based contents such as coatings, degreasers, adhesives, detergents, maintenance products and more.

These highly efficient products are a great replacement for older nitrite/amine-based anti-flash-rust inhibitors, which can release dangerous nitrosamines and contribute to the water sensitivity of the dry film. ASCOTRAN® is the perfect solution to avoid both of these problems, whilst working at low dosages and being Ecolabel compliant.
