Recommended applications For best results, Rustilo 4163 should be applied by dip, flood or spray method.

Additional Information

The claims on film thickness and consumption are average values. These are valid for smooth surfaces with good drain-off characteristics and simple geometries without holes or recesses. “Indoor storage” describes the storage of ferrous components in closed store rooms having a relative humidity of 60%.

Increased protection times could be achieved when treating finished surfaces or storing the parts in a sealed pack. “Outdoor storage” describes open storage, which assumes primary protection from the elements by tarpaulin or other form of cover.

The influence of temperature may cause some cloudiness, which is reversible and doesn’t have an impact on product quality. If required protective films of Rustilo 4163 can be removed by using a petroleum solvent or alkaline process cleaner, all available from Castrol.
