Rust Prevention with Liquid Lanolin, Australia

Originating from a renewable resource, Liquid Lanolin stands as a testament to our commitment to providing a sustainable corrosion inhibitor to all Australians.

Throughout the course of this article, we will delve into the remarkable effectiveness of this substance in preventing rust, and showcase its versatility in maintaining the integrity of a variety of metal surfaces. We will also provide insights into its origin, properties, and the myriad of benefits it offers, emphasising its role as a noteworthy general-purpose substance in the realm of rust prevention.

So, let’s get into it, shall we?


What is Liquid Lanolin?

The application of liquid lanolin as a preventative maintenance tool is invaluable in prolonging the life and functionality of various metal parts, ensuring their optimal performance.

Liquid lanolin is derived from wool grease — the natural secretion from sheep’s wool. This unique substance undergoes a meticulous extraction process to yield a product that has become a cornerstone in our line of corrosion inhibitors.

The chemical and physical properties of liquid lanolin make it an effective agent against rust, providing a barrier on metal surfaces which displaces moisture to prevent the oxidation process. In addition, it also serves as an ideal solution for corrosion protection on a multitude of metal components, including electrical equipment and powder coated surfaces.

The reason liquid lanolin fares so well compared to other rust prevention agents is because of the aforementioned unique combination of benefits it offers. These benefits ensure that our valued clients receive uncompromised quality and effectiveness in their rust prevention with ease.

Application of Liquid Lanolin in Rust Prevention

Liquid lanolin stands out as it provides a superior layer of protection, resists wash, and effectively loosens rusted tools and components. This makes it a preferred choice for those looking to maintain the integrity of their metal assets in industries where corrosion could be a significant concern.

To properly apply liquid lanolin, it’s crucial to follow the recommended steps to ensure optimal corrosion protection. These steps are:

  • Ensure that the surface is clean from dirt, grease, and any other contaminants that might interfere with the adhesion of the lanolin. Use a suitable degreaser or cleaner and a cloth or brush to clean the surface thoroughly.
  • After cleaning, dry the surface completely. Any remaining moisture can cause issues with the lanolin adhering properly and can compromise the protective layer.
  • Using a brush or a clean cloth, apply a generous and even layer of liquid lanolin to the surface of your metal. Ensure all areas are covered well to avoid any gaps in protection.
  • After application, allow the liquid lanolin to cure and form a protective layer. Refer to your product’s instructions for the recommended curing time, as it may vary depending on the formulation.
  • Once the lanolin has cured, inspect the surface to ensure that there are no missed areas and that a consistent, protective layer has formed. If any areas are missed, reapply as necessary.
  • Based on the environmental conditions and the level of exposure, reapply liquid lanolin periodically to maintain its corrosion protection efficiency.

The versatility of liquid lanolin makes it suitable for a plethora of metals and surfaces, serving as a comprehensive solution for all your diverse needs. As mentioned, it is especially invaluable in loosening already rusted components, making it an essential part of maintenance for sliding doors, chains, and most surfaces that are prone to rusting.

By diligently applying liquid lanolin, we can maintain the resilience and durability of various metal surfaces and components, preventing the onset of rust and ensuring smoother operations.
