TOUGH GARD® Anti-Spatter Liquid

TOUGH GARD® anti-spatter liquid is a ready-to-use water-soluble, non-toxic product developed to address the performance and environmental concerns of metal fabricators. By prolonging the life of your consumables and reducing the need for downtime, TOUGH GARD anti-spatter liquid can help to reduce your operating and maintenance costs.

How It Works

When exposed to heat, TOUGH GARD anti-spatter liquid creates a sacrificial barrier around the nozzle. Spatter sticks to this barrier and breaks away, leaving the consumables clean, extending the life of your consumables. Plus, TOUGH GARD anti-spatter liquid won't clog the sprayer like oil-based anti-spatter solutions!


Warning: Effectiveness of this product will be reduced if diluted.
