Description Technical Specs
Polychem® AQUA-SPAT NF is a mildly alkaline liquid blend of surfactants, and sequestrants.  Its excellent spatter release  capability  prevents  weld spatter from adhering to the metal during welding process.  Polychem® AQUA-SPAT NF can also  be used to protect parts fixtures, weld tips and nozzles.

Apply in a light mist or thin coat using a trigger sprayer, brush or similar device.  Spray or dip gun tips or nozzles.  Apply to MIG guns when they are hot.  

This is a water based product that does not contain any solvents of silicones.  Will not interfere with paint systems.  Available in Gallons, 6 gallon cases and 5 gallon pails, and 55 gallon drums.  We stock Gallon containers and can special order 5 gallon pails.



  • The key to using Aqua-Spat® products successfully is to use as little product as necessary to protect the surfaces. Aqua-Spat® products are waterbased, free rinsing weld spatter releases. “The less you use, the better it works.” The water in the product is a carrier, which is meant to deliver protectant to the surface while evaporation away during application or shortly thereafter. A protective coating is left behind to prevent spatter and slag from adhering to the base metal. The spatter and slag can be brushed away while the protectant itself will rinse away with ANY water contact. If you over apply Aqua-Spat ® product(s) the water in the product may rinse the protectant away before it has a chance to do its job. When applying Aqua-Spat® product(s) anything that encourages evaporation of water will help optimize the performance of Aqua-Spat® i.e.: heating Aqua-Spat® before applying, heating base metal before applying, atomizing Aqua-Spat®, allowing Aqua-Spat® to mist onto surface, exhaust draft in application area.

  • In order to get a feel for how Auqa-Spat® products work, I suggest trying the simple demonstration:

  • 1. Dip your index finger into Aqua-Spat®.

  • 2. Rub your thumb and index finger together until the water evaporates leaving a tacky feel (Aqua-Spat® NF and Aqua-Spat® NFD), or a dry slippery feel (Aqua-Spat®Ti). This is the feel of the coating you want to achieve on the surfaces to be protected.

  • 3. Rinse fingers under water. Aqua-Spat® products are free rinsing and will come off residue free.



  • Aqua-Spat® products can be applied by: spray, brush, dip, mist, fog, pneumatic sprayer ….etc. In order to MAXIMIZE performance you must MINIMIZE the amount of product applied.

  • 1. Hand Spray bottle:

  • Apply sparingly in the finest atomized state possible. For best results, spray OVER area to be protected and allow product to mist down onto surface. In most cases, ONE pump of a hand sprayer containing Aqua-Spat® NF will be sufficient to protect the area coated. In cases where additional protectant is needed on the surface use Aqua-Spat® NFD, instead of applying additional product. When coating vertical surfaces always start at the top and work down using the same misting technique.

  • 2. Automated applications:

  • Use any atomized container, fogger or mister to protect metal surfaces, jigs, fixtures, gun tips and nozzles. For large surface areas a paint gun/pressure pot setup works extremely well. Do not over apply.

  • 3. Dip:

  • Heat Aqua-Spat® to between 110°F and 140°F. Dip part into heated solution, remove slowly and allow surface to “dry”.

  • 4. Brush:

  • Dip brush in Aqua-Spat®. Apply in one direction, allow surface to “dry”.

  • 5. Gun tips and nozzles:

  • Spray Aqua-Strip® onto tips/nozzles manually or automatically. The heat on nozzle will evaporate water leaving behind a protective coating.

  • After welding, brush weld spatter and slag away. Aqua-Spat R will remain on on parts, and serve as a rust preventative, until rinsed off with water. Rinse Aqua-Spat ® away with water or allow the part to continue on to any water wash system. Spatter will be gone and protectant will rinse residue free. On gun tips and nozzles tap spatter off. Rinse tips in hot water periodically to avoid build up of Aqua-Spat® protectant.
