Minimox® Self-Protective Alloy Treatment reduces alloy oxidation and flaking at elevated temperatures. Minimox is a safe, economical, water-based solution that is designed to be applied in the field. It works on a variety of alloys, including stainless steels, aluminum, nickel, titanium, magnesium, and superalloys and has demonstrated success over 1100°C (2000°F). One application for Minimox includes reduction of scaling on components being heat treated as well as protecting the furnace itself.
Minimox can also reduce corrosion, including metal dusting and carbon attack. Other applications include improving the mechanical properties of composites and the reduction of coking.
