EcoLine 3690 contains 72% USDA-certified bio-based content and leaves an oily protective film behind that does not dry. The film is ideal for contractors who manufacture parts or equipment and need to prevent rust during periods of storage or shipment. Additionally, it is appropriate for any manufacturer hoping to reduce worker exposure to volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or mineral-oil or solvent-based rust preventatives.

EcoLine 3690 is easily removed using an alkaline cleaner and may help users avoid hazardous waste disposal costs tied to traditional rust preventatives. EcoLine 3690 should be applied to clean metal surfaces via spray, roll, brush or dip at a recommended wet film thickness of 1.0 mils to 3.0 mils (25 μm to 75 μm). It can also be applied over painted surfaces. EcoLine 3690 has no VOCs and is temperature stable up to 180° F (82° C).
