Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DOES ECK® WORK?
Eck® was engineered to prevent dissimilar metal corrosion that always occurs when you fasten dissimilar metals together, such as aluminum and steel. Eck® creates a barrier between the two metals and uses Zinc dust and Zinc powder as the sacrificial metal. God made aluminum and steel to not like each other, causing paint to bubble or blister, and Eck® keeps them separated.
DOES ECK® HURT PAINT?
Absolutely not! Three of the world's largest commercial paint manufacturers tested Eck® and endorse it. In fact, they routinely recommend Eck® to their customers, which include Truck, Automobile, Bus, and Boat manufacturers.
CAN'T I USE RUBBER SPACER, TAPE OR WAX PRODUCTS TO DO THE SAME THING?
Yes, you can, but why take the chance? Those other products have nothing in them that actually prevents the electrolytic reaction that occurs with dissimilar metals. As an example, those other products sweat with temperature changes or washing. That moisture can act as an electrolyte, putting the two metals in contact. Eck® has a zinc formula that will absorb the energy, preventing corrosion.
HOW DO I USE ECK®?
Simply spray or brush Eck® on the two different metals being assembled. Spray or brush onto nuts, bolts, rivets, etc. & any holes.
HOW DOES ECK® CLEAN UP?
Mineral spirits, alcohol, or similar products nicely remove any excess material.

CAN ECK® BE USED WITH ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS?
We have several customers that use Eck® every day to prevent corrosion on electrical connections. It works as a Dielectric-Grease with corrosion preventing ingredients.
WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT ECK®?
Eck® has been engineered to never dry. Eck® will set up and become tacky in about 15 minutes. This is of great benefit because it won't dry, crack, and fall off.
