Daubert Chemical Company Inc. recently announced a series of key promotions and new hires within the company, including the role of President and CEO. Dr. Mike Duncan, previously Executive Vice President of Technology at Daubert, will succeed Matt Puz as President and CEO.


Daubert Chemical’s Next-Generation Nox-Rust 1290HP Uses Nanoscale Chemistry to Boost Rust-Inhibiting Properties by 50 Percent

Daubert Chemical is a recognized leader in the formulation of cavity wax and wax-based underbody coatings, and Nox-Rust is considered the industry’s leading corrosion-inhibiting solution for automotive manufacturers. The company’s next-generation 1290HP formula takes Nox-Rust to a new level of effectiveness by measurably increasing the industry’s corrosion protection expectations from 10 years to 15 years.

The next-generation Nox-Rust 1290HP has been reformulated to include a nanoscale chemical additive that complements the product’s original molecular makeup, depositing a protective barrier that interferes with corrosion mechanisms. The new product can be applied to a wide variety of substrates and requires far less surface preparation than competing anticorrosive coating technologies. Nox-Rust 1290HP also exhibits superior adhesion to welds and demonstrates resilience even when exposed to post-coating assembly processes using welds or mechanical fasteners like screws and bolts.

By using next-generation Nox-Rust products like 1290HP to protect components, engineers have greater flexibility when choosing materials and construction methods. Thinner, higher-alloy steel can last much longer and welded areas are far better protected. By leveraging the superior coverage that submersion in a wax-based coating like Nox-Rust 1290HP affords, I-beam, C-channel and tubular steel structural components can all receive the same optimum level of anticorrosion protection.  Nox-Rust 1290HP can be applied to some previously coated substrates and interacts well with E-coated, powder-coated and liquid-coated steel. Unlike other traditional corrosion-resistant coatings, surfaces treated with Nox-Rust hot melt coatings require no preparation before accepting new welds.
