Metgard QD

Petroleum Based Corrosion Inhibitor

Metgard QD will displace water from metal parts and deposit a thin, essentially dry, colorless film. Metgard QD leaves no messy film and will not bleed through wrappings, boxes, and most other packaging materials. It is generally used for protection of highly finished surfaces in indoor storage or transit where it will give many months protection (up to 12 months in some applications). Although designed for indoor protection, it is also used on parts in shed storage and in some cases may be used for short outdoor exposure. Metgard QD is non-staining.
