CorrosionX Chemical and Physical Properties

What is Polar Bonding™?

Polar Bonding is a term we coined to describe the attraction between CorrosionX and any metal or metal oxide that can oxidize. The attraction between CorrosionX and metals is analogous to the attraction between two magnets. This phenomenon causes CorrosionX to be drawn to, and bond with, metal and metal alloy surfaces and subsurfaces. This has several profound benefits. For example, this attraction powers CorrosionX to penetrate further than other penetrants. It causes CorrosionX to penetrate through surface debris (such as rust, corrosion, moisture, corrosion-causing electrolytes like salt crystals, gunpowder fouling, etc.). It also prevents CorrosionX from being displaced by moisture or friction, so that CorrosionX products perform better and longer against corrosion, friction and wear.

All CorrosionX branded products, plus ReelX® and SpeedX®, employ Polar Bonding™ and FTFC™ technologies.

CorrosionX Polar Bonding molecule

What is FTFC™ technology?

FTFC™ is an acronym for Fluid Thin Film Coating technology. Because every molecule of CorrosionX wants to bond with a molecule of metal or metal alloy (see Polar Bonding), when applied to metal, CorrosionX molecules will creep and spread across a metal surface until it organizes into a dynamic, self-healing, high dielectric ultra-thin film coating (4/10,000" thick) that isolates the metal surface from oxygen, moisture and wear. Because the coating is bonded to the metal, it cannot be readily displaced by moisture, pressure or friction. This is the core of CorrosionX's remarkable performance as a lubricant, penetrant and corrosion preventive coating.

All CorrosionX branded products, plus ReelX® and SpeedX®, employ Polar Bonding™ and FTFC™ technologies.

How long does CorrosionX last?

Up to two years is common for applications were the product is not directly exposed to the environment (such as in a garage or in an airplane wing).

CorrosionX Aviation

Is CorrosionX Aviation QUALIFIED for corrosion prevention and control on aircraft?

If you are looking to use a proper corrosion prevention and control product that has been tested and approved for aircraft in the United States, look for one that is QUALIFIED (i.e. on a military or OEM Qualified Products List). CorrosionX Aviation is not only qualified under MIL-PRF-81309H Type II and now also Type IV, Corrosion Technologies has been awarded almost as many approvals under this Mil Spec as all other manufacturers combined.

Other versions of CorrosionX

There are many products line. What's the difference?

Everything called CorrosionX, along with ReelX and SpeedX, start with the core CorrosionX Polar Bonding™ and Fluid Thin Film Coating (FTFC™) product. From that core formula, some of the varient products are repacked to make them more suitable for a particular application, but in some of them, the core product has been modified to optimize certain performance or physical properties of the product to make it optimized for certain applications. You can see more in-depth information on each product page, but following is a quick breakdown:

CorrosionX: Our core, ultra-thin film product. Famous worldwide as the best lubricant, penetrant and corrosion inhibitor for its film thickness.

CorrosionX Aviation: The same as CorrosionX, accept that the packaging has aviation-oriented applications and the label contains information required by the U.S. and NATO Mil Spec MIL-PRF-81309.

CorrosionX Extended Duty (XD): A thin film thickness version of CorrosionX. By thickening the protective film, this product provides extended protection against corrosion. This is especially helpful in aggressive corrosive enironments, such as those found in maritime, mining and water treatment applications. When the film is thickened, the product loses some of its mobility, so while this product can still be atomized into a fog with a Handi-Spray™ system, it will not creep or penetrate to the extent that CorrosionX, CorrosionX Aviation, ReelX and SpeedX will.

CorrosionX Heavy Duty (HD): A medium film thicknes version of CorrosionX. By thickening the protective film even more, this product provides maximum protection against corrosion. This is especially helpful in aggressive corrosive enironments, such as those found in maritime, mining, water treatment and even fully submerged applications. When the film is thickened, the product loses most of its mobility, so product stays pretty much where it is sprays and tenaciously resists removal by water splash and spray.

ReelX and SpeedX

What is the difference between ReelX® and SpeedX®?

Both ReelX and SpeedX start life as CorrosionX with its core Polar Bonding technology, which provides superior corrosion prevention and lubrication characteristics.

To make ReelX and SpeedX, we add an additional super-exotic Extreme Pressure (EP) additive that is activated by triboenergy (the heat energy of friction). Once activated, this additive package modifies metal and metal oxide wear surfaces and subsurfaces making them smoother and virtually eliminating friction.

This EP additive gives ReelX and SpeedX lower coefficients of friction and greater load carrying characteristics than any other metal-on-metal thin film lubricant. These products thrive under heavy loads and high temperatures!

ReelX contains some of the additive, whereas SpeedX has a little more to target both products for their respective uses (fishing reels with high loads and very high spin rates vs. skate or industrial bearings which may experience even higher loads).
