Braycote 248 Uses
Braycote 248 may be applied by dipping at temperatures from 160°F to 180°F (71°C to 82°C). Braycote 236 may be brushed or swabbed on at room temperature when its consistency resembles a soft grease, or at elevated temperatures when it resembles an oil. Hot spray applications can be used for protecting large pieces of equipment that are too large in size for dipping applications.
Optimal performance can be achieved only when the metal surfaces to be protected are clean, dry and free of rust, oil and mill scale.
The coverage of Braycote 248 will widely vary dependent on the method of application and surface geometries.
