  • Best Practices for Dow Metal Protective Coating

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Surfaces to be protected with Dow Corning Metal Protective Coating must be clean and dry.

      Although the coating will not permit moisture to penetrate, it does not displace moisture already on the metal surface.

    2. Application

      Dow Corning Metal Protective Coating is ready to use as supplied. However, for uniform solids distribution and coating thickness, the bulk material should be gently mixed before and during use. Dipping will provide a uniform coating

      however, spraying is often the preferred method of application. For best results, three light applications are better than one heavier application. For smaller jobs and touch-up work, Dow Corning Metal Protective Coating may be applied from an aerosol container. Brushing may also be used. For best protection, scratching of the coating after application should be avoided.

    3. Removal

      In most cases, Dow Corning Metal Protective Coating does not have to be removed from coated parts before they are machined, assembled or started up. However, if removal is desired, degreasing with common solvents such as mineral spirits or Dow Corning OS Fluids will normally remove the coating as will steam cleaning or alkali cleaners.

      Note: Caustic cleaners should not be used to remove Dow Corning Metal Protective Coating from aluminum surfaces.
