Truly Protect Your Mold from Rust

Protect Your Mold from Rust for 5 Years

Slide’s “No-Rust” Rust Preventive (#40212M) provides a minimum five years of protection against rust under normal indoor storage conditions. Use of improper methods to prevent molds from rusting can spell financial disaster for a molder – proper maintenance minimizes or eliminates the need for costly repairs that could get into thousands of dollars for a deteriorating mold.

“No Rust” provides a heavy coating of protective oils that both displaces existing moisture from the mold surface and seals it up to prevent further moisture from penetrating to the mold surface. These lubricants are formulated to run and creep into those hard-to-reach areas thus ensuring complete uniform mold protection. A Slide Mold Cleaner should be utilized to remove the No Rust prior to the mold going back online.

This one-step formulation also neutralizes fingerprint acids and is a non-silicone, non-wax product. See our popular best practices article for Rust Preventives Selection and Use and try before you buy by requesting a free sample.
