Sanchem Inc

NO-OX-ID and SafeGard are heavy duty rust and corrosion preventatives used when maximum corrosion resistance is required.  NO-OX-ID prevents corrosion on steel, iron, aluminum, copper, zinc, magnesium, galvanized and IVD.  NO-OX-ID barrier coatings are environmentally safe, high performance coatings with a 90 year history of performance, which can be applied successfully by people with little or no technical background. Use NO-OX-ID on: pipelines, dams, salt water tanks, valves, inside steel pickling plants, and for protecting production parts, finished equipment during shipment or storage. 

Our new breakthrough corrosion control products include: SafeGard CC chrome-free conversion coatings for aluminum, zinc, steel, magnesium and galvanized steel.  These products can be used with or without paints or powder coating. Sanchem Inc is ISO-9001 certified.

NO-OX-ID - THE ORIGINAL RUST PREVENTIVE, trademarked 1918.  This anti corrosion coating requires minimal surface preparation and is the long-term solution for lubrication and corrosion control. NO-OX-ID A-Special is a cosmoline type rust preventative coating that is used as an anti condensation coating on structural steel, in acid pickling areas, brine tanks, inside water tanks, steel cables, bridges and cofferdams. Use this cosmoline type corrosion resistant coating whenever the use of heavy duty rust preventives and anti condensation coatings are required.

NO-OX-ID "A-SPECIAL" is the electrical contact grease of choice in new electrical installations and maintenance because of its excellent performance in keeping metals free from corrosion. This conductive grease has been used for over 50 years to prevent corrosion in electrical connectors from low micro-power electronics to high voltage switchgear. The formation of oxides, sulfides and other corrosion deposits on copper surfaces and conductors can be prevented with its use. This product is used as a battery terminal grease because it is not effected by battery acid.  NO-OX-ID "A-SPECIAL ELECTRICAL" is an USDA approved electrical grease compound and rust preventive that prevents corrosion and lubricates electrical connections.

NO-OX-ID A Special WW 

This cosmoline type anti corrosion coating is approved under NSF Standard 61 for use as both an internal coating for the interior of potable drinking water tanks and approved lubricants NSF for water treatment facilities. When coating an elevated water tower with   NO-OX-ID, the surface does not require a SSP#10 white sandblast before application, only the use of power brushes. These approved NSF lubricants are used on valves, baffles, flocculators, radial gates and screens.  This cosmoline type product has a unique rust inhibitor system that will give you superior corrosion control. Application is generally done by brush, rollar or airless spray equipment.

SafeGard’s is a breakthrough water based rust preventive that is non-flammable, non-toxic and provide an excellent barrier to the corrosive effects of humidity and salt spray. There are many different surface finishing consistencies and colors of SafeGard available. SafeGard coatings range from soft and easy to remove to firm and hard to remove that is like a waterbased cosmoline. SafeGard can be applied by brush, dip or spray. At the end of the day the equipment is cleaned up with soap and water. General Motors, Ford, John Deere,  and Chrysler use these products for export shipping.

SafeGard CC

You can get both the golden color you remember and clear with SafeGard CC 3400, chromium-free conversion coating.   SafeGard CC-3400 is electrically conductive and is used to enhance paint adhesion, and prevent corrosion due to humidity and salt spray. Use SafeGard CC-3400 on aluminum, magnesium and zinc.  Nokia is now finishing aluminum surfaces and getting the golden chromate color with chromate-free SafeGard CC-3400 to meet Europe's RoHS Directive for the elimination of chromate.

While another major telecommunications company is getting a clear color is using SafeGard CC-3400 with SafeGard CC-3400seal#2 for corrosion control and electrical conductivity on their aluminum parts.  This breakthrough surface finishing technology has also been tested by Boeing in St Louis. Missouri. They also agree that it passes both the corrosion protection and electrical conductivity requirements for Mil-C-5541.
