Hydrophobic glass is only part of the protection.

Protecting metal surfaces require many considerations and advanced chemical engineering. Most surfaces requiring protection are not meant to be painted, such stainless steel, chrome, brass, etc. While these metals are not going to oxidize as fast as iron, they are subject to deterioration and corrosion, which is accelerated in marine environment and coastal areas.

DITEC offers a complete line of General and Metal Maintenance products. For protection and preservation of metal surfaces we offer two different products with different functionalities.

Metalon for Preservation

Metalon is a Metal preservation coating engineered to be used on stainless steel, copper, brass, chrome, etc.Metalon Preservation Coating creates a barrier over the stainless steel surface Metalon creates a nonporous, waterproof, transparent barrier over the treated metal. This barrier prevents oxygen, containments, water and dirt to reach the surface and prevents corrosion of the metal.

The coating is also water and dirt repellent. Since Metalon has a non-porous molecular surface, it is does not get dirty and wiping the surface will be enough for normal maintenance. Metalon treated surface:

  • can be easily cleaned with water or very mild detergent.
  • does not rust
  • does not need to be polished
  • resist visible finger prints specially in pool areas where people have sun creams and lotions on their hands

Metalon PX for Maintenance and Protection

Metalon PX™ was made for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines when the company wanted to replace other metal polishes such as Brasso to ensure personal safety an in line with Royal Caribbean environmental policies. Royal Caribbean required that the metal polish included the following properties:

  • does not have adversed health effect*
  • provides efficient polishing result
  • is environmental and sustainable
  • reduces the labor
  • is cost-effective

Metalon PX™ was the solution and could fulfill all requirements and exceed the expectations. Metalon PX™ is a multi surface application and an All-In-One metal cleaner, metal polish and metal protective coating. It can be used on all nonferrous metals and can be applied by hand or polishing equipment. Metalon PX™ function is as follows:

a. Cleaning

Metalon PX can be used to clean the metal surface from brown discoloration, corrosion or tea staining of stainlessMetalon PX cleaning function steel and other metal surfaces in coastal and marine environment. Metalon PX removes stubborn tea stains, oxidations and contamination from uncoated metal surfaces like stainless steel, chrome, aluminum and other uncoated metals.

b. Polishing

Metalon PX™ is also a polish and can remove rust and corrosion in order to recondition the metal surface. A Metalon PX polishing properties and functionspecial formulated abrasive blend makes it easy to remove all stains without scratching the surface. Metalon PX™ can be applied directly to the metal surface without any preparation.

Older and contaminated surfaces can be reconditioned and it creates a protective coating over the surface.  

c. Protection

Metalon PX™contains specially engineered molecular components, SAM® (Smart Assembling Molecules). After Metalon PX protective functionapplication of Metalon PX, as cleaner or polish, SAM® starts creating a protective coating above the metal surface.

SAM® is actively hydrophobic and non-porous. Therefore Metalon PX™ is able to provide a long lasting, ultra thin protection and a durable easy to clean surface. Stainless steel and other metals will stay shiny and protected even at harsh marine environments or in areas with high pollution or dust levels.

SAM's protective effect last up to 2 years in normal conditions, and shows increasing life span with periodical application. A surface polished with Metalon PX™ can be wiped off with a wet cloth.

*An adverse health effect is defined as the causation, promotion, facilitation and/or exacerbation of a structural and/or functional abnormality, with the implication that the abnormality produced has the potential of lowering the quality of life, contributing to a disabling illness, or leading to a premature death. (see this link)
