RPAM 700 Corrosion Inhibitor

November 13, 2013

RPAM 700 from Chemtool Inc. is a synthetic, water dilutable corrosion inhibitor/corrosion preventive, based upon an enhanced blend of select amine-surfactant chemistries. RPAM 700 is recommended for use in aqueous circulating systems applications which require short term (1-3 months) to moderate term (3-6 months) indoor protection of both ferrous and nonferrous metallic components. RPAM 700 contains no diethanolamine or nitrites.

RPAM 700 exhibits excellent wetting and coverage properties on all ferrous and non-ferrous alloys, according to the company. This outstanding film coverage is critical for good corrosion protection, especially on complex surfaces and geometries. It is low foaming and is an effective rust inhibitor at low concentrations for immersion application systems. RPAM 700 is completely soluble in water and may be used as an in-process rust inhibitor. Due to the products solubility, you can tailor the products concentration to meet your protection requirements. RPAM 700 contains a blend of corrosion inhibitors which offer both surface and vapor phase corrosion protection.

RPAM 700 forms a near imperceptible film on machine parts for excellent corrosion protection without forming a sticky residue. It is also compatible with a variety of process water chemistries. The clear dilution makes it an ideal choice for leak detection systems and as a base fluid for abrasive fluids and slurries.

RPAM 700 can be utilized as a corrosion inhibitor for aqueous circulating systems at a suggested starting concentration of 5 percent for systems containing both ferrous and non-ferrous components and assemblies. Adjust the concentration to provide the desired level of protection based upon storage conditions and the length of protection required.

Features and benefits include:

Outstanding in-process corrosion protection on all metallic substrates

Provides good corrosion protection for all system surfaces

Excellent wetting and coverage properties on complex part geometries

Excellent pH control and reserve alkalinity Good hard water stability

Excellent product choice for test stand fluid
