Rust Preventatives Coatings

Rust Preventatives and Coatings
Temporary corrosion protection for parts in-between production processes, storage, or for added protection to the ICT500 Series Packaging Products during ocean shipments.

Rust Preventatives (RPs) and Coatings Series

Zerust offers corrosion inhibiting coatings that complement our VCI packaging solutions in manufacturing processes, storage and shipping applications. Zerust rust preventatives and coatings range from effective water-based solutions to greases designed to give standalone protection, even in aggressive outdoor environments.

Zerust Rust Preventative Additives and Water Conditioners

AxxaVis HST-10

AxxaVis HST-10 powder additive treats water used for hydrostatic testing of pressure vessels and voids. It prevents corrosion by reducing hardness and deactivating ionic contaminants such as chlorides found in municipal water sources that cause rust and hard water deposits on metals. 

 

AxxaVis PX-05-AN

AxxaVis PX-05-AN is a powder, that when added to rinse water, enables it to neutralize acids left by cleaning processes. Use to control flash corrosion on metals caused by acids left over from cleaning and rust removal treatments as Zerust AxxaClean

 

AxxaVis PX-10-HRD

 

AxxaVis PX-10-HRD is a powder additive that conditions hard water when deionized water is not available. Use to treat tap water with a hardness of up to 700 ppm CaCO3 and prevent scale and scum. It increases the performance of Zerust products that require dilution, such as Axxatec and AxxaWash concentrates.
