API-20 Corrosion Inhibitor/Lubricant
Metal Mates API-20 is an oil-based corrosion inhibitor that protects stored parts, dies, and equipment during short-term storage or shipping. This product is often used by automotive manufacturers to protect parts during temporary plant shut-downs. It displaces unwanted moisture and reduces moisture penetration. When applied API-20 covers the metal surface with a thin protective layer of oil which dries to a light, non-tacky film.
API-20 was specifically formulated for the automotive industry to eliminate bath contamination and cratering caused by oily corrosion preventatives. This product is easy to clean and will not varnish, even after a second application. It leaves a lighter residual than conventional inhibitors which reduces hem-flange blowout and provides lubrication in blanking, stamping, drawing, and piercing applications.
Not to be diluted with water (neat oil).
