Transit Coatings


Transit Coating, a definition:

Application Instructions for Nox-Rust 3100 & 3100G Liquids Removal of Nox-Rust 3100 & 3100G Liquids Transit coating liquids keep exposed metal rust-free during shipment
  • A liquid, oil or coating that protect metal and most painted surfaces during domestic and international shipment. When properly applied, the transit coating will prevent damage from sea water, acid rain, insects, bird droppings, smoke, pollution, dirt and debris.

Now more than ever, manufacturers of large equipment need ways to protect their products from factory to delivery. The shift away from liquid coatings containing heavy metal means metal surfaces are increasingly susceptible to corrosion. Hose fittings and connectors, for example, are now exposed corrosion-causing conditions, especially during export.

The three liquids Daubert Cromwell primarily categorizes as Transit Coatings are:

Nox-Rust 3100
Nox-Rust 3100 transit coating can protect metals stored outside for 5+ years. In salt fog testing, the most rigorous ASTM standard for measuring the effectiveness of corrosion protection, Nox-Rust 3100 outlasted the competition in salt fog and humidity testing. Results prove Nox-Rust 3100 is the best choice for protecting equipment and machinery during domestic and overseas shipments.

The dry film is firm, amber/translucent and when applied to the recommended dry film thickness, will protect ferrous and non-ferrous metals in protected or unprotected storage. It can be handled after 3-6 hours, and sets up in 12-24 hours. Nox-Rust 3100 can be removed, if required, by solvent based thinners, vapor degreasing or hot alkaline wash.

Heavy equipment part protected by Nox-Rust 3100G transit coating

Nox-Rust 3100G
NEW! New Nox-Rust 3100G has the same excellent corrosion protection properties as Nox-Rust 3100, in a thicker consistency that clings to vertical surfaces. Nox-Rust 3100G adheres to the metal to provide an even layer of protection on large, heavy, and vertical metal surfaces. Easy to apply by spray or brush, this transit coating is well suited for equipment stored outdoors, ideally beneath a cover or tarp.

Nox-Rust 3400
Wax-based, amber colored film is also an ideal choice for 5-year outdoor protection. This solvent-based, dry, firm, corrosion preventive liquid protects painted surfaces during domestic and overseas shipping. Apply by dip, spray or brush. It can be removed with solvent-based thinners, vapor degreasing or hot alkaline wash.
