Abstract : The invention describes liquid compositions which are solutions in a volatile aliphatic hydrocarbon solvent of from about 35 to 40% by weight of n-butanol and a small proportion each of mixed isomers of a long chain alkylamine salt of a C8 to C22 alkyl or alkenyl succinic acid long chain alkylmonoamide, paraffin wax, an ethylene-vinylacetate copolymer having a vinylacetate component of from about 25 to 33% by weight, and, optionally, an antioxidant. The liquid compositions are useful for displacing water from and providing a dry, water repellent, corrosion-inhibiting coating on electrical insulator mountings, particularly when they are in direct association with steel parts.
