• Corrosion Protection
    1. Clean area to be treated.
    2. Allow surface to dry.
    3. Apply a light coat of TC-11 to metal surfaces. Repeat process 3-4 times a year.
  • Rust Removal
    1. Spray area with TC-11.
    2. Use a paper towel, cloth, 0000 steel wool or a stainless steel wire brush to agitate surface.
    3. Clean area with a water spray, paper towel or cloth. Repeat steps 1-3 if necessary
  • Freeing Frozen Bolts & Parts
    1. Spray frozen bolt or part with TC-11.
    2. Wait 10-30 seconds.
    3. Apply torque in a back-and-forth motion. Repeat steps 1 to 3 if necessary.
  • Lubrication
    1. Apply a small amount of TC-11 to the moving metal parts.
    2. After 20 minutes, wipe off excess TC-11.
  • Electrical System Waterproofing
    Apply TC-11 to spark plug boots, distributor cap, coil or coils, battery terminals, multi-pin connectors, and terminal strips. Do not apply directly to fuse labels or other sensitive adhesive labels. Do not apply to arcing contacts. TC-11 is an insulator that will cause a small voltage drop across the connection that does not increase over time. An untreated connector will corrode and the voltage drop will increase until the component no longer functions.

    Long-Term Storage: If equipment is to be stored for more than five months, apply a heavy coat of TC-11, wait 20 minutes, and apply a second heavy coat. Wash down equipment with a water spray to remove any dust and debris.

Application Specific Directions

  • Locks
    1. Flush frozen locks and drain vertically overnight.
    2. For operating locks, put a small drop of TC-11 on a key and insert the key into the lock. Repeat application annually.
  • Bicycles
    1. Apply TC-11 to metal surfaces.
    2. Let the TC-11 set for 20 minutes.
    3. Hose down bicycle.
    4. Apply a small amount of TC-11 to the drive chain, pivots, and cable sleeve ends. Repeat process 3 times a year.
  • Boats
    1. Clean metal parts with a cloth or a degreaser and a water rinse according to all environmental rules and regulations.
    2. Allow surface to dry thoroughly.
    3. Restore primer film and paint film as necessary.
    4. Apply TC-11 to all metal parts. Repeat steps 1– 4 every 3 months.
  • Vehicles
    Apply to metal engine parts, throttle sleeve ends and linkages, transmission, undercarriage, locks, hinges, and door tracks twice a year. Do not apply TC-11 to the radiator or A/C condenser fins, brake rotors, or brake pads.
  • Preventing Vehicle Damage due to Road Salt
    1. Make sure that paint and undercoating are in good condition.
    2. Wash down undercarriage.
    3. Allow undercarriage to dry.
    4. Apply a heavy coat of TC-11 to the entire undercarriage.
    5. Allow the TC-11 to set for 20 minutes.
    6. Apply a second heavy coat of TC-11. Repeat steps 1-6 at beginning, middle, and end of snow season.
  • Household
    1. Apply to tools, window operators, locks, and hinges on an annual basis.
    2. TC-11 removes rust stains from porcelain and fiberglass quickly and easily.
    3. TC-11 removes adhesive residues and indelible ink.
  • Sporting Goods
    1. Apply TC-11 to fishing reels, guns, PWC, ATVs and other metal equipment 48 hours prior to use.
    2. Clean equipment after use.
    3. Allow equipment to dry.
    4. Apply a thin coat of TC-11. Apply two thick coats of TC-11 before long-term storage periods.

TC-11 Aerosol Applicator


The aerosol is well suited to treating large areas, such as the undercarriage of vehicles, engines, transmissions, boat engines, andother applications where a thin film is being applied to a large area for corrosion control purposes.





TC-11 Bulk Application

TC-11 is well suited for large scale application, such as construction equipment shipped as deck 1and5galcargo. TC-11 can be applied with a one-gallon low pressure sprayer, a five-gallon knapsack sprayer. Contact us if you have any questions about large scale applications.
