Its lubricating, moisture-displacing, penetrating, and corrosion-prevention properties are unsurpassed by any single product of its kind.

Armite’s 12|34® Formula is certified as a qualified product by the U.S. Department of Defense. Armite’s 12|34®, meets MIL-PRF-81309H(1), which is a military specification for Type II Class I (Bulk) and Type II Class II (CO2 Aerosol propellent) preservatives used in such areas as defense, aviation, aircraft, aerospace, marine, mining, oilfield, energy, automotive and general industrial applications.

Armite’s proprietary MIL-PRF-81309H specification is an important tool for ensuring the readiness and reliability of aerospace, aviation, marine, mining, and military equipment (and more), and the lubricants that meet the requirements of the specification are essential for the successful operation of mechanical systems.

  1. LUBRICATES: Contains highly refined lubricants which provide superior protection and anti-wear properties.
  2. PREVENTS RUST & CORROSION INHIBITOR: 12|34® Formula’s thin film adheres to metallic surfaces, providing protection against the formation of rust and corrosion, including electrolysis and galvanic corrosion common in high-salinity environments.
  3. PENETRATES RUST: Rusted and frozen metal parts are easily loosened by superior “creepability.”
  4. REMOVES/DISPLACES MOISTURE: Moisture is lifted and displaced rather than trapped. Surface pores and crevices are freed from moisture and coated with a thin, non-greasy film that prevents additional moisture from clinging or re-entering.

12|34® Formula – Proprietary MIL-PRF-81309H – the Best of the Best

12|34® Formula was originally developed to protect materials in storage and to reclaim materials damaged by weather and/or saltwater exposure. Much of this work was done for the Navy and general aviation for corrosion prevention and rust removal. Rust has been called the Navy’s second most formidable enemy. 12|34® Formula has been enlisted in corrosion control and rust removal in multiple shipboard and shore installation applications for the Navy. In general aviation, light aluminum sections and component parts have been similarly protected by 12|34® Formula’s ability to stop corrosive oxidation. So successful was the product in these fields, that expanding 12|34® Formula into countless other industrial applications was inevitable. Treating with 12|34® Formula before storage can reduce handling costs and maintenance until the materials are ready for processing.

Ford Motor Company, Central Laboratory Services (Test M-7C54A Rust Preventive for Polished Steel) tested 12|34® Formula. Test data revealed the following:
Water Displacement 24 days, 100°F (37.7°C) – NO RUST
Corrosion, Oven Temp 158°F (70°C) for 30 days – NO RUST
Appearance of film after 24 hours drying – NO CRACKS OR BREAKS
Flash Point of 178°F (81.1°C)
Pour Point of -40°F (-40°C)
Abrasives – NONE
