  Tectyl 506 G 

Tectyl 506 G

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 film.

Tecyl 506G


Surface Preparation:
The maximum 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.

TECTYL 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 years minimum.

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 Valvoline.
