Surface preparation

The maximum performance of Tectyl 127 CGW can be achieved only when the metal surfaces to be protected are clean, dry and free of rust, oil and mill scale. Valvoline recommends a substrate temperature of 10-35 °C at the time of product application.


Tectyl 127 CGW is formulated to be used as supplied. It is recommended that the ambient and product temperature be 10-35 °C at the time of product application. Tectyl 127 CGW can be applied by airless spray or brush. Details on application can be found in the application chart.


Tectyl 127 CGW can be removed in the wet phase with Tectyl Biocleaner, Valvoline 150 or low-pressure steam. If dried and cured, Tectyl 127 CGW the film can be removed with Valvoline 150.
