Who?

A heat-treating company located in Michigan

What?

Zerust® Chemical Group engineered AxxaWash™ products tailored to the customer’s specific equipment and application

Why?

Water-based wash and rust preventative chemistries were leaving residue and rust on the metal parts

How?

Zerust® Chemical Group staff visited the heat-treating facility to complete a process map and collect samples of the wash and rust preventative chemistries to bring back to the lab for comprehensive testing. After completing the testing on the samples and careful consideration of input from the heat-treater, Zerust® Chemical Group Chemists engineered AxxaWash™ products tailored to the customer’s specific equipment and application

Problem

A heat-treating company located in Michigan had been using water-based wash and rust preventative chemistries from a large chemical manufacturer for the past 15 years. During this time, residue and rust problems have been accepted as status quo. The heat-treating company contacted the chemical manufacturer to find a solution to this problem. However, the chemical manufacturer did not consider the heat-treater to be worth much attention although they were purchasing four 55-gallon drums of chemistry each month.

Solution

The heat-treater contacted Zerust® asking if they had the capability to custom formulate wash and rust preventatives to address the corrosion and residue problems they’ve been experiencing. Zerust® Chemical Group staff visited the heat-treating facility to complete a process map and collect samples of the wash and rust preventative chemistries to bring back to the lab for comprehensive testing. After completing the testing on the samples and careful consideration of input from the heat-treater, Zerust® Chemical Group Chemists engineered AxxaWash™ products tailored to the customer’s specific equipment and application.

Zerust® offers an increasing range of cost-effective, high performance wash fluids and rust preventative products. These products are formulated to work synergistically together to provide enhanced, comprehensive corrosion solutions for our customers. Backed by our global expert technical support and testing services, a comprehensive corrosion management program can be designed and deployed to meet each individual customer’s needs.


Customer Satisfaction
100%

Results

Results from a live trial with the Zerust’s custom AxxaWash™ products at the heat-treater’s facility demonstrated an improvement over the incumbent chemistry. Representatives from the-heat treater commented that they had never seen parts so clean. An extended trial to satisfy the end-user’s PPAP requirements is pending.

Zerust® Axxawash™ NW-10C wash additive deactivates corrosion causing ionic contaminants such as chlorides left by metalworking fluids. It also degreases and removes hydrocarbon soils. It can be applied by immersion, high-pressure and ultra high-pressure wash. AxxaWash™ NW-10 is recommended for use on highly reactive ferrous metals such as cast iron exposed to inorganic salts and other contaminants.

Ultrasonic cleaning solution

AxxaWash™ NW-12C is a mildly alkaline, aqueous-based metalworking wash and rinse fluid that cleans and deactivates sources of corrosion such as chlorides, oils and contaminants. Cleaning with the wash solution enhances the effectiveness of future corrosion prevention methods.

water-dilutable corrosion preventive concentrate

Use Axxatec™ 77C to protect bare metal surfaces (such as those of golf club shafts) during assembly, large equipment during temporary storage, and in situations where water-based spray-on, in-line production or dipping applications are desired.

long lasting water-based rust preventative coating

Use Axxatec™ 80C Concentrate to protect bare metal surfaces during assembly, large equipment during temporary storage, and in situations where water-based spray-on, in-line production or dipping applications are desired.

corrosion inhibiting additive

Axxatec™ 8110C was designed for use in closed system, such as aqueous cooling systems or hydraulic systems, and will protect iron, steel, aluminum, copper and brass parts within these systems for up to one year. It is a water-based and easily diluted with coolant or water-based hydraulic fluids.

water-based VCI rust preventative

Axxatec™ 85-F combines the power of a water-based rust preventative with Zerust® Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors (VCIs) to protect ferrous metals. It is designed for use as a foggable rust protection for the inside void spaces of tanks, packages, and enclosures.

foggable water-based rust preventative
