Corrosion management for cast parts
Reduce rust problems on contaminated parts that cannot be oiled
A large US auto manufacturer was plagued by corroded auto parts arriving at assembly facilities. The parts had to be packed hot to add to the challenge, which created condensation. In addition, the manufacturer could not use oils, and the parts had a storage period prior to use. The Zerust® team of corrosion technicians was invited to diagnose the problem and create a packaging solution.
Zerust® engineers discovered that contaminants from the casting process were on the parts. Zerust® recommended using sturdy reusable totes instead of wooden pallets lined with Zerust® VCI poly bags. To combat contaminants and flash-corrosion, Zerust® ActivPak® VCI diffuser packets were dispersed throughout the container. This packaging system provided immediate and long-term corrosion protection. The new packaging design solved corrosion issues and significantly reduced costs associated with rework and scrap.
