Tectyl 400C Translucent Multi-Purpose Wax-based Corrosion Preventive Compound Approved under Ford Motor Company Specification M7C-16A/EST-M7C-16A for Ford Truck Division

Tectyl 400C is a premium corrosion preventive compound approved under Ford Motor Company Specification M7C-16A or EST-M7C-16A for the 6.7L Power Stroke V8 diesel engine used in Ford Truck Division to ensure it meets performance, durability, and emissions standards.
The M7C-16A specification encompasses the physical components of the engine while EST-M7C-16A covers the engine control system software, which includes the engine computer, sensors, and actuators.

Tectyl 400C is a multi-purpose, solvent base, corrosion inhibitor cutback with mineral spirits formulated to provide exceptional protection against the effect of moisture and corrosion on metal surfaces in long-term indoor or short-term outdoor exposure.
This premium wax-based corrosion inhibitor is designed to effectively protect industrial components, painted surfaces, and transportation equipment assemblies against corrosion during storage and domestic/international shipments.

Tectyl 400C will dry to a translucent, amber-colored, waxy, firm film coating that will not stain your silver/silver-plated metals. This thin protective film layer is only 25 microns, allowing for economical protection over a larger surface area.
