Rust-Preventative Weldable Primer

Tempil introduced BLOXIDE°, a rust-preventive weldable primer that provides protection from rust formation on edges prepared for welding. It also acts as an oxygen/oxide scavenger in the weld pool. This results in a clean X-ray quality weld. Steel sections having their prepared edges coated with BLOXIDE° can be stored outside in open yards for extended periods of time before being welded. These can be shop- or field-welded after several months without any need for further cleaning. This saves substantial material and labor costs. Because BLOXIDE° is aluminum based, an electrical welding arc can be struck directly on the coating with ease without generating any hazardous fumes or foul odor. Welding over the aluminum coating also ensures that there are no inclusions or porosity in the weld. (
