FAQ from our recent Survey:

How much does your product cost?

What a great question! Our prices are on our website and at first may seem a little more expensive than our competitors. However, our products contain corrosion and acid inhibitors that last 5 times as long! So the cost of our product is much less!

What makes your product better than the ones I can pick up at my local hardware store?

Our competitors normally use kerosene and petroleum jelly. Kerosene (wax) is a good penetrant but contains no corrosion preventative compounds. Want proof? Check the CAS numbers on their (and our) Safety Data Sheets.

How long can I expect a treatment to last?

Longer than any of our competitors and they actually work! Many factors go into this…type of metal, surface features, humidity, salt exposure, acid exposure, etc., etc.. Head to head we last longer against corrosion and acid vapors then any product on the market today!

Can I paint over your preventative product?

We have several products that can be painted over. Quik Tann III and Lektro-Tech P to name two.

How long should it take to dry?

This depends on which of our products you are using and the ambient temperature. The drying time can be from seconds to minutes.

Are your products really non-flammable?

All products made by Corrosion Protection & Solutions LLC, dba Lektro-Tech are Non-Flammable. Please check the Safety Data Sheets. Most products are extremely flammable and several tell you not to turn a light switch on or off while using…..Can you say arc flash! Ours can even be used on hot buss bars without turning off the power!

Should I use your dry product or the self-healing one….which is better?

This totally depends on the application; we have technical assistance just a phone call or e-mail away. We will help you decide which will work best and stay with you through the completion of your project.

How easy is it to apply your products?

Our products are easily applied by rolling, brushing, swabbing, dipping or spraying. Let us help you decide the best method of application. When spraying hold can 12 inches from metal and spray lightly, left to right then top to bottom…metal has ridges and this insures coverage

What color are your products when they dry?

The treatment, Quik Tann III comes out as a milky white and turns the Iron Oxide black. Our preventatives display a slight amber color but dry colorless.

FAQ from our recent Survey Cont.:

What is your minimum order?

We’ll pour it in your pocket if you like. No, seriously, if bought in aerosol, one can is fine. In bulk we consider a quart as the smallest container.

How clean do the surfaces need to be before application?

How clean do the surfaces need to be before application? Because of the variables involved there is not a simple answer. The surfaces have to be “reasonably” clean but not spotless. The amount of our corrosion preventative compounds that have to be used to protect metals against corrosion is minimal and the solvent based products dry so quickly that the amount of fluids applied is so small that there is not enough liquid to “wash off” thick layers of dirt and grease. The solvents used in our solvent based products are solvent de-greasers so the solvent in our products will actually remove small amounts of grease and/or oil. If there is a thick layer of dirt wash it off with water (if possible) prior to applying our products. A thick layer of grease will have to be removed manually prior to the application. If the metal already has rust you need to brush, scrape or use an air compressor to remove any loose flakes. Then treat with Quik Tann III treatment prior to applying the preventative.

How often do I re-apply your product?

You may never have to re-apply our product. Aircraft for instance have to re-apply every 30 days or 100 flight hours….whichever is first. You’ll need to tell us what you’re treating to answer this

Why do you have two websites with different products?

www.corrosionpro.com is more for industrial and consumers. www.lektrotech.com was originally set up for the military.

What do you mean by the term Hydrophobic?

The definition of hydrophobic, in its simplest form, is; repels and/or fails to mix with water. Our products are designed to repel or drive off water and to form a barrier that will keep water from coming into contact with the treated area. Most, if not all of our competitors say that their products are “water displacing”. Water displacing has NOTHING to do with getting rid of water. It simply means that the volume of fluid (water) is increased by the volume of whatever is put in into the fluid (water). For example, if an ice cube is put into a glass of water, the water level in the glass will raise.
