Corrision Inhibitor

Corrosion Inhibitors

Corrosion inhibitors are used to protect metal surfaces from harsh environments—rain, snow, humidity, salt, acidity etc.—by forming a barrier between the surface and the corrosive material to improve corrosion resistance. Corrosion inhibitors and flash rust inhibitors are called upon to enable the metal used in machinery, equipment, cans, coils, and more to stand up to a variety of conditions that can cause corrosion.

Lubrizol is a recognized leader in chemistry for metal coating protection, of which corrosion protection is a key element. Lubrizol corrosion inhibitor and flash rust inhibitor technologies are designed to protect ferrous metal, zinc alloy and aluminum substrates. Drawing upon vast technical resources and decades of experience, Lubrizol is uniquely qualified to add value by developing products that are both innovative and responsive to customer needs.

Typical Applications

Available for both water-borne and solvent-borne coating systems, our corrosion inhibitors are commonly used as components in direct-to-metal coatings and primer formulations for a number of applications, including:

  • Automotive OEM and VR Coatings
  • Can Coatings
  • Coil Coatings
  • Commercial Transportation Coatings
  • Liquid Roof Coatings
  • Protective Coatings
  • General Metal Finishes

Lubrizol® 2064 is an acid scavenging calcium sulfonate designed for use in oil-based and water-reducible rust-proofing applications. Lubrizol® 219 is an organo-phosphate-zinc complex that provides thin film corrosion protection for solvent-borne coatings. Solplus™ AC100 is a nitrate-free flash rust inhibitor for water-borne coatings,
