Health and Safety

Zerust. A green solution. 

Using Zerust® Corrosion Inhibiting VCI bags and rust preventative coatings to protect metals and rust removers to restore parts saves up to 95 percent of the energy that is required to produce new parts. Preventing rust also reduces CO2 emissions associated with reprocessing scrap into new parts and the environmental waste stream from failed parts. 

 Zerust Helps Remanufacturing

​Zerust is also a key tool for remanufacturing operations. Industrial remanufacturing refurbishes items such as engines, transmissions and other valuable assemblies into like-new condition. This prevents large amounts of waste from going to a landfill by rebuilding and making it usable again. Often the rebuilt part has the same expected life as the original new part. The energy saved by recycling one pound of steel can run a 60-watt light bulb for over a day.

 Zerust is Recyclable

Not only do Zerust products prevent waste, they are also environmentally responsible. Zerust VCI poly bags and films, and kraft paper products are recyclable. Check with local and national regulations on disposal options.
