How to use Dry Coat

PREP: For best results, remove surface dirt, oil, grease or anything that could be a barrier between Dry Coat and the surface of the metal.

APPLY: Dry Coat can be applied in one of two ways:

  1. Spray
    If using spray application, spray to coat entire surface of metal with care to keep from “over-saturating” (you do not want pooling of puddling of liquid).
  2. Dip
    If applying via dip or submersion, allow excess Dry Coat to drain or “flow off” of metal part.

DRY:  Dry time is dependent on ambient conditions such as temperature, humidity and airflow. When conditions are ideal, dry time is approximately 30 minutes. If needed, the use of a fan on a low setting or heat (recommended temperature and exposure limit for Dry Coat is 180˚ F (82˚ C) will help to accelerate the drying process.  Once dry, protective coating is not sticky or tacky and as we like to say, it will provide “Invisible Protection, Visible Results.”

STORAGE:  Dry Coat will protect metal from rust and corrosion for up to one year of indoor storage with its protective coating. Metal items treated with Dry Coat and stored inside a container (bag, box, storage tub), will also benefit from Dry Coat’s chemistry that releases a VCI vapor. VCI, short for Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors, release a molecule that attaches to any exposed metal surface to form an invisible, thin film to protect metal from rust. Prolonged exposure to moisture, humidity or outdoor elements will reduce the length of protection.

REMOVAL:  Dry Coat does not interfere with advanced processing such as stamping, grinding, cutting, welding, or burnishing.  If necessary, Dry Coat can be easily removed with a mild detergent  or common metal cleaning solution.
