Zerust® Corrosion Solutions for Land Shipping

Metal parts are susceptible to corrosion during land shipments, as variations in temperature and relative humidity over time can cause condensation along the inner walls of the truck, this is a phenomenon commonly known as ‘container rain’ or ‘sweat’. If the metal parts are poorly packaged, this humidity can enter the packaging, and accelerate the rate of corrosion.

Corrosion during land shipping is accelerated by contaminants and residues left behind from metalworking, improper handling of metal components, and incorrect packaging processes. Some light surface corrosion may not be a major concern for components that require further metalworking. However, heavy pitting corrosion can remain even after the surface is machined.

A Zerust® representative from our global network will work with you to understand your packaging requirements. A wide array of technical resources may be used to identify the root causes of corrosion. For example, data loggers placed inside test shipments can be used to evaluate the climatic stress during the shipping route. Product and fluid samples can be tested for compatibility in one of our regional laboratories located around the world. Using this information we will design with you and your supply chain a cost-effective packaging solution.
