Fluoramics Announces Lubricant/Antirust Inhibitor, HinderRUST

Fluoramics, Inc. introduced its newest product, HinderRUST, a zero VOC’s, surface active, rust inhibitor and industrial lubricant.

HinderRUST is a superior industrial antirust lubricant and corrosion inhibitor, which is surface active. It is the creation of the Guinness Book of World Record Holder (Tufoil) and inventor, Frank Reick.

The new lubricant contains no solvents, displaces water and adsorb quickly.

Reick explained, “Unlike competitive products, HinderRUST has no solvents; it won’t wash away and is great for confined spaces because of its non-aerosol application.”

It was first used in a subway system where aerosols, solvents and perfumes were outlawed. It was then used on wire rope where its low viscosity and surface activity caused it to soak in and coat every nook and cranny in the cable. Next it was used as a replacement for gooey jells from WWII in railroad bogies.

Living by the sea will cause your machines, boats and tools to rust, causing expensive repairs. HinderRUST will stop rust and corrosion due to salt-water and salt-air. “We did a test where we took samples of steel plates and placed them in a salt fog chamber. After just four days the piece not coated with HinderRUST looked like it spent the last hundred years buried with the Titanic. Pieces coated with HinderRUST had practically no rust on them whatsoever,” explained Frank.

Reinauer Transportation, owner of Senesco Marine, is testing the product on their tugboats and wire rope. Reick said, “Our product soaks right in, preventing rust, corrosion and lubricating the wire from the inside to extend its life.”
