Flash Rust

HALOX® FLASH-X®

Flash Rust Corrosion Inhibitors

Flash rust inhibitors are added to water based coatings in order to stop corrosion formation that occurs during the drying process. Without the use of flash rust inhibitors, water soluble corrosion products migrate to the surface of the coating appearing as rust stains or spots. In addition to the flash rust protection provided by the entire line of HALOX® Organic Corrosion Inhibitors, FLASH-X® products are specifically designed to prevent unsightly staining which can ruin an otherwise perfect finish.

Key Features

HALOX® FLASH-X® 150 is used in water-based protective coatings as an effective liquid additive for the inhibition of flash rust and in-can rusting. It is highly effective at relatively low loading levels compared to other flash and in-can rust inhibitors. HALOX® FLASH-X® 150 has demonstrated excellent flash rust inhibitive performance on various metal substrates ranging from iron, steel and galvanized iron to galvalume and zincalume. HALOX® FLASH-X® 150 is effective for inhibiting in-can rusting in lined and unlined metal containers. It is compatible with a variety of latex emulsion polymers without causing film sensitivity or package stability problems that can occur with other flash rust additives. It is easy to use and can be incorporated at any stage of coating manufacture. HALOX® FLASH-X® 150 can also be easily and effectively post added to any coating system.

HALOX® FLASH-X® 330 is an effective, nitrite free, liquid additive used in water-based protective coatings for the inhibition of flash rust and in-can rusting. FLASH-X® 330 has demonstrated excellent flash rust inhibitive performance on a variety of metal substrates without the use of nitrites. HALOX® FLASH-X® 330 is a recommended choice for high gloss systems. Unlike some competitive products, FLASH-X® 330 does not detract from gloss.  HALOX® FLASH-X® 330 is easy to use and can be incorporated at any stage of coating manufacture. FLASH-X® 330 can also be easily and effectively post added to any coating system

HALOX® 350 is a more active 97-100% solids organic corrosion inhibitor designed to stop flash rust, in-can corrosion, and provide temporary corrosion protection. HALOX® 350 is an effective replacement for toxic nitrite based flash rust inhibitors. Recommended dosage: 0.2-0.8% HALOX® 350 (of 30% solution) based on total formulation solids.
