New “nGlide” anti-corrosion inhibitor from Truck-Lite

To defend sensitive electronics and wiring harnesses in trucking operations against corrosion, Truck-Lite Co. recently added a “nano” family of dielectric products based on a

patent-pending substance called “nGlide” that inhibits corrosion and provide enhanced barriers to moisture at the microscopic or “nano-technology” level – a substance that adheres to microscopic imperfections on even the smoothest of surfaces.

This development comes in direct response to the increasingly invasive and damaging corrosive materials on the road over the last several years; as corrosives become more advanced, so must the products used to combat them, noted Brad Van Riper, Truck-Lite's senior vice president and chief technology officer.

"The new nano series drastically reduces the threat of electrical system malfunctions, corrosion and oxidation when compared to other products," he explained. "This offers fleets a premium product to help extend the life of their electrical system components by combatting corrosion before it's even visible."

Available only from Truck-Lite, the nano series includes nanoSeal, which is available in spray and gel applications for use in lighting, battery and engine assemblies, and nanoShell, which is a paint-on enamel, perfect for protecting battery terminals and other contact points. Both nanoSeal and nanoShell offer superior hydrophobic properties, an operating temperature of minus 40°F to over 400°F and enhanced protection from breakdown caused by high temperature and voltage.

The supplier said nanoSeal is available in eight and 32-ounce cans; one, two and five-ounce tubes; a 14-ounce cartridge; plus 14-ounce spray bottle and 64-ounce spray refill. Its nanoShell enamel product is available in a 12-ounce can with included brush applicator.
