Surface preparation

The maximum performance of Tectyl 210-R can be achieved only when the metal surfaces to be protected are clean, dry and free of rust,
oil and mill scale. Valvoline recommends that the metal substrate temperature is 10-35 °C at the time of product application.


Tectyl 210-R is formulated to be used as supplied. Ensure uniform consistency prior to use. Continued stirring is generally not required.
Do not thin Tectyl 210-R. Incorrect thinning will affect film build, dry time and product performance. Valvoline recommends that the ambient and product temperature be 10-35 °C at the time of product application. Tectyl 210-R can be applied by low pressure air spray.
Details on application can be found in the application chart.


Tectyl 210-R can in the wet phase be removed with Tectyl Biocleaner, Valvoline 150 or lowpressure steam. If dried and cured the film of Tectyl 210-R can also be removed with Tectyl Biocleaner or Valvoline 150.
