Has anyone used Corrosion X products?
« on: September 02, 2022, 02:51:09 PM »
During my internet travels, I accidentally ran across a corrosion inhibiter called Corrosion X. These products come in several forms (automotive, aviation, general lubricant/penetrating, etc.). According to their literature their products supersede "sliced bread" as being the neatest thing on the market.

https://www.corrosionx.com/collections/corrosion-prevention-control/products/corrosionx

Among the attributes that caught my eye about these products is that they do NOT contain waxes or silicones. I, like most everyone on this site, use Boeshield T-9 for corrosion prevention. It contains paraffin. Many products like WD-40 contain silicone.

My thinking is that Corrosion X could be a spray coating used in place of Boeshield and especially for use on cast aluminum intake manifolds/valve covers, etc. where visual preservation of the original surface finish is paramount without the "shine" or wet look. They also claim that their products can be used in high temperature applications.

I was wondering if anyone has tried Corrosion X products and, if so, what their observations have been? It just might be a better "mouse trap"(?).

I worked in the aviation industry for aruond 45 years and am just about retired from it. Various manufacturers specify various products to be used for prevention and control of Corrosion (CPCP is the industry acronym). Generally Boeshield T9 and various Dynitrol products are specified. They are very similar in that either of them leaves a waxy coating over the part being protected.

Corrosion-X is a competitive company that is more aimed at non - regulated industry so it's kind of wild and wooly by comparison. Have used tons of Dinitrol mostly the "green" version in pump bottles and it is good stuff.

I use Corrosion X marine products on my boat applications. I also have a block coated with the green can. Good stuff.
