How long has this water based coating been on the market? For over 40 years, SafeGard has been used for rust proofing metal surfaces. This corrosion resistant coating has been used by major automotive, tractor and truck manufacturers around the world. There were many articles were written about using SafeGard for corrosion prevention when it first came out:
National Safety News, September 1960 - "Fireproof Rust Proofing", Article about using SafeGard H at International Harvestor . Steel March 9, 1964 - "New Protective Coating Aids Budd Automotive", Article about using SafeGard H at Budd Automotive.

Surface preparation - SafeGard rust preventatives may be applied over almost any surface, but best results are achieved when the surfaces are clean, dry and free of existing rust or corrosion. SafeGard can be applied over damp metal surfaces. In many instances the coating has been applied to oily surfaces with good results. Remember - rust is a catalyst for the formation of more rust!
Application - SafeGard's rust protection may be applied by brush, dip coating or spraying.
Drying time - SafeGard corrosion inhibitor system provides excellent protection for inside and outside storage. SafeGard's barrier coating sets quickly at room temperature - usually within 15 minutes. Upon setting, a visible change from a soft milky film to a dry to the touch translucent wax like film takes place. The curing process normally takes 24 hours, but may be attained in as little as 5 minutes with blower fans, heat lamps, or drying rooms. The coating should not be subjected to rain until the film has been cured.
TYPICAL QUESTIONS ASKED ABOUT A WATER BASED COATING
Doesn't water in the presence of oxygen cause metal corrosion or rust? Yes it does, but the water in the "SafeGard" emulsions contains a rust inhibitor to prevent this from happening - so your parts will not rust as the emulsion dries.
Will this anti corrosion coating wash off if it rains? Not once the emulsion dries. It is dry to the touch in less then 1-hour and after 24 hour cure, water will not remove the corrosion resistant coating. The cure time can be reduced with hot air blowers.
How do I remove the cured protective coating? We recommend using an alkaline cleaner such as SafeGard 11085A. This cleaner is environmentally friendly and was developed to remove SafeGard around the world.
