TECTYL 506 Description:
TECTYL 506 is a solvent cutback corrosion preventive compound. The dry film is firm, amber, and translucent. TECTYL 506 is excellent for protection of metallic surfaces against corrosion in long-term indoor or outdoor exposure and during domestic and overseas shipment.

TECTYL 506 Accelerated Corrosion Tests:
(2x4x1/8 in. Polished Steel Panels)
* 5% Salt Spray (Hours) ASTM B-117 @ Recommended DFT = 2496
* 100% Relative Humidity (Hours) ASTM D-1748 @ Recommended DFT = 1500
TECTYL 506 Surface Preparation:
The maximum performance of TECTYL 506 can be achieved only when the metal surfaces to be protected are clean, dry and free of rust, oil and mill scale. Daubert Chemical Company recommends that the metal substrate temperature be 50-95°F (10-35°C) at the time of product application.
TECTYL 506 Application:
TECTYL 506 is formulated to be used as supplied. Ensure uniform consistency prior to use. Continued stirring is generally not required. If the product thickens due to cold storage or loss of solvent during use, contact Daubert Chemical Company. DO NOT THIN TECTYL 506. Incorrect thinning will affect film build, dry time and product performance. Daubert Chemical Company recommends that the ambient and product temperature be 50 - 95°F (10 - 35°C) at time of application. TECTYL 506 can be spray or dip applied. DO NOT FREEZE TECTYL 506.
TECTYL 506 Removal:
TECTYL 506 can be removed with TECTYL HPS solventborne thinner, vapor degreasing, hot alkaline wash, or low pressure steam. TECTYL 506 can be removed from fabrics by normal dry cleaning procedures. Avoid the use of chlorinated or highly aromatic solvents when removing from painted surfaces, as these solvents may adversely affect paint.
TECTYL 506 Storage:
Store TECTYL 506 at temperatures between 50-95°F (10-35°C). Mild agitation is recommended prior to use.
TECTYL 506 Caution:
Adequate ventilation is required for cure and to ensure against formation of a combustible liquid. THE PARTIALLY CURED FILM SHOULD NOT BE EXPOSED TO IGNITION SOURCES SUCH AS FLARES, FLAMES, SPARKS, EXCESSIVE HEAT, OR TORCHES. Refer to Daubertís Material Safety Data Sheet for additional handling and first aid information.
TECTYL 506 Note:
The addition of any product over or under this coating is not recommended. The use of additional coatings could result in chemical incompatibility, thus adversely affecting the performance of this coating as stated in the lab data section. If a product other than Daubert Chemical Companyís recommended product is required, written authorization must be obtained from Daubert Chemical Company.
