Tectyl® 5166


Tectyl® 5166 is an annual rustproofing compound. Tectyl® 5166 is a metallo-organic, polar type rust-proofing compound specifically designed to protect automotive body sections and complete under-carriage and inner cavity areas. It sets as a thin gel with low viscosity that allows for film build on vertical surfaces and for seam penetration (capillary action) into areas with metal-to-metal overlap. The resulting film is amber in color and will repel water, self-heal, and remain flexible to prevent chipping or cracking. Daubert recommends the use of Tectyl® 5166 wherever a water displacing, long term, body corrosion preventive is needed.  The film of Tectyl® 5166 does not build up with repeat applications.

Key Features
