Houghton Rust-Veto 33X - General purpose dewatering agent and thin film rust pre

Houghton Rust-Veto 33X - General purpose dewatering agent and thin film rust preventive - 66125


Rust-Veto 33X is a general purpose solvent-based rust preventive with excellent dewatering characteristics. On evaporation of the solvent it deposits a thin, oily film which gives short to medium term protection to ferrous and nonferrous metals.



Rust-Veto 33X is designed as a general purpose dewatering agent and thin film rust preventive which will provide up to nine months' protection during indoor storage. Rust-Veto 33X has excellent resistance to emulsification and is therefore particularly suitable for dewatering components after machining or grinding in alkaline coolants or soluble oils.

Typical applications include:

  • Inter-operational protection of finely machined or ground metal surfaces such as valves, rollers and fasteners.
  • Protection of finished machined components prior to packaging.
  • Short to medium term protection of finished parts during indoor storage or shipment.



  • Higher flash point – not white spirit based
  • Excellent dewatering characteristics
  • Effective water separation with high resistance to emulsification
  • Thin, oily film
  • Readily applied
  • Easily removed by solvents or alkaline cleaners


Pack sizes available - 25ltr, 205ltr drums

Houghton Ensis Engine Oil 30W - Compatible rust preventive engine oil - 30266

Houghton Ensis Engine Oil 30W - Compatible rust preventive engine oil - 30266


Ensis Engine Oil 30 is oil specially formulated to provide long-term internal protection of gasoline and diesel engines.



  • Provides internal protection of I.C and C.I engines, gearboxes and trans-missions during shipment, storage or laying up.
  • The protective oil forms an enduring film that will remain on the internal surfaces of the treated equipment to provide excellent protection against corrosion for a considerable period.
  • May also be used as a temporary service lubricant before laying up and recommissioning. Ensis Engine oils may be used as the service lubricant until the first oil change in many types of engine.
  • Ensis Engine oils are applied by using the correct viscosity grade in place of the normal service lubricant for a short period before shut down.

Ensis Engine Oil 30 is used neat as supplied.



  • Good compatibility: Compatible with high performance mineral oil service lubricants to avoid the necessity for costly flushing.
  • Excellent rust prevention: Contain additives to neutralize the acidic products of combustion.
  • Safer handling: High flash points and low volatility - to minimize the fire risk in application and storage.
  • Conforms to requirements as specified in BS 1133, TP6.
  • Ensis Engine oils are compatible with all normal mineral oil seal materials.


Pack sizes available - 209ltr drums
