Silver Corrosion Inhibitors

Gasoline containing certain contaminants, especially elemental sulfur, hydrogen sulfide, and some mercaptans, is corrosive toward silver engine components in some automotive systems. Remediation of gasoline that fails the silver corrosion specification requires reprocessing or the use of a silver corrosion inhibitor. Our additive interacts with the metal surface to form a film that protects silver from attack by corrosive contaminants in the fuel.
