Tool and Die Rust Preventative

Cortec's EcoAir Tool & Die Rust Preventative is designed for mold, tool and die manufacturers and other end users. "This effective liquid rust preventative comes in a non-flammable spray can that makes it easier to use than traditional greases and shipping oils employed to protect tooling assets and all tool steels during shipping, storage and transport," said a company spokesperson. "It is also relatively safer to store than traditional highly flammable aerosols."

Cortec originally tailored the product for a large Midwestern U.S. tool and die manufacturer that wanted to eliminate any possibility of corrosion on a 40,000-lb. Class A plastic-injection mold during its six-week overseas boat shipment to Europe. By packaging an effective vegetable-oil-based rust preventative in an EcoAir spray can, Cortec was able to deliver a cost-effective solution. EcoAir Tool & Die Rust Preventative was sprayed on the internal surfaces of the mold maker's two-cavity automotive interior P20 plastic-injection mold prior to shipment. This provided corrosion protection and water displacement and cleaning properties for any process-related fluids remaining on the mold. The mold successfully reached the European client with no corrosion issues, and the rust preventative did not need to be cleaned off the mold. The client requested that all molds be shipped in the same manner going forward.

EcoAir Tool & Die Rust Preventative is designed for all similar tool and die applications and can also be used to:

  • Clean grease, oils, adhesives and water deposits off metal surfaces
  • Displace moisture and protect metal surfaces from corrosion
  • Preserve all types of carbon or alloy-based steel tooling, molds, fixtures and dies long-term up to 24 months indoors.
