Tectyl 8140 Black Solvent Base, Thixotropic Asphalt Corrosion Preventive Undercoating for Transportation Equipment

Tectyl 8140 is a solvent base, thixotropic, asphalt corrosion compound suitable for the complete undercoating of ferrous (iron-containing) and non-ferrous (no-iron) transportation equipment, automobiles, and trailer or chassis frames.
This high-quality mixture of asphalt, solvents, and additional additives delivers a durable protective film that assists in preventing rust by essentially sealing out harmful contaminants like moisture and dirt.

Tectyl 8140 is a thixotropic compound, meaning its uncured state has a gel-like consistency that becomes more fluid or ketchup-like in texture with continued mixing and agitation.
This key characteristic allows for significantly simplified application, spreading, and improved flow during product handling.

This premium solvent base, asphalt corrosion compound undercoating will ultimately cure to form a black, firm, and resilient protective film that is resistant to abrasion, prevents corrosion, and works as an effective sound deadener.
Tectyl 8140 works exceptionally to provide maximized corrosion protection for vehicle undercarriages and can extend the overall life of your coated metal surfaces.
