TECTYL 506-G is solvent cutback, wax base, thixotropic, dark amber, gelled corrosion preventive compound.
TECTYL 506-G is recommended for the long term protection of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, as an underbody coating of autos, trucks, trailers, etc.
TECTYL 506-G cures to a relatively firm, dark amber, resilient, tough
performance of TECTYL 506-G can be achieved only when the metal surfaces
to be protected are clean, dry and free of rust, oil and mill scale.
Valvoline recommends that the metal substrate temperature be 10-35 °C at
the time of product application.
506-G is formulated to be used as supplied. Ensure uniform consistency
prior to use. Continued stirring is generally not required. If the product
thickens due to cold storage or loss of solvent during use, contact
Valvoline. DO NOT THIN TECTYL 506-G. Incorrect thinning will affect film
build, dry time and product performance. Valvoline recommends that the
ambient and product temperature be 10-35 °C at the time of product
application. TECTYL 506-G can be applied by airless spray or brush.
TECTYL 506-G can be removed with mineral spirits or any similar petroleum
solvent, hot alkaline wash or low pressure steam.
TECTYL 506-G should be stored at temperatures between 10-35 °C. Mild
agitation is recommended prior to use. Due to its composition TECTYL 506-G
can be subject to postproduction viscosity changes during storage.
Under proper storage conditions TECTYL 506-G can have a shelf life of 3
Adequate ventilation is required for cure and to ensure against formation
of combustible liquid. THE PARTIALLY CURED FILM SHOULD NOT BE EXPOSED TO
IGNITION SOURCES SUCH AS FLARES, FLAMES, SPARKS, EXCESSIVE HEAT OR
TORCHES. Refer to Valvoline’s Material Safety Data Sheet for additional
handling and first aid information.
The addition of any product over or under this coating is not recommended.
The use of additional coatings could result in chemical incompatibility,
thus affecting the performance of this coating as stated in the Typical
Properties section. If a primer, other than a Valvoline recommended
product is required, written authorization must be obtained from
