Ankor Wax is a special solvent deposited, long term corrosion preventative, having low viscosity and surface tension thereby enabling it to spread rapidly, penetrating into all inaccessible areas and covering all surfaces however irregular. It dries to leave a continuous firm wax protective coating that imparts excellent corrosion protection properties. Ankor Wax has de-watering properties and therefore can be used where the metal parts to be treated are wet. All traces of water are displaced before the protective film is applied. Ankor Wax is effective in damp and humid climates and gives excellent protection against salt spray.
Ankor Wax is recommended for medium and long term corrosion protection applications. This product is highly recommended for protecting bright steel wire, bars, billets, sections and sheets during long term storage and transport. It many also be used as an underbody protective. Ankor Wax is easily applied by spraying, brushing or dipping. The low viscosity of this product ensures minimum drag out when using the dipping process, and in large scale systems this can show significant saving over other types of products. If parts that have been treated with Ankor Wax are to be subsequently painted, the coating must be removed prior to painting and this can be achieved using our Tabor OK or Purolene. White spirit, kerosene and other hydrocarbon solvents may also be used. It is recommended that containers are stored in a cool area with bungs or caps tightly closed so as to avoid evaporation of the solvent, which would lead to excessive thickening of the product, making application increasingly difficult.
