The Tectyl 185GW Black is a solvent base gelled calcium sulfonate corrosion preventive compound cut back with mineral spirits. This premium coating is designed for long-term protection providing remarkable protection in marine, tropical and industrial environments.

Tectyl 185GW calcium sulfonate coating is a wax-like film that is firmer than Vaseline but not hard like a candle. The film will dry to a semi-firm wax-like film that is semi-gloss in appearance and will repel water, self-heal, and remain flexible at low temperatures.

In its uncured state, Tectyl 185GW is gel-like and becomes more fluid with mixing, agitation, and product flow. Allowing for much easier application, spreading, and flow during product use.
