A Russian automaker experienced corrosion on stamped metal surfaces during CKD (complete knock-down) shipments from Russia to Ecuador. They used various oils as their corrosion protection method, which proved to be ineffective as well as an environmentally hazardous means of protection. The auto manufacturer needed a different solution that would work efficiently and without the contamination and the clean-up that comes with using oil.


Zerust’s international team of corrosion experts recommended Zerust® ICT®510-C Ferrous and Multimetal VCI Film for the protection of steel and galvanized steel during transportation and storage. After a successful trial shipment to Ecuador, Zerust® VCI films were officially approved for use.

Customer Satisfaction


The manufacturer found that using Zerust® Vapor corrosion inhibiting (VCI) products paid-off. Corrosion stopped completely on stamped parts and anywhere else Zerust® products were used. The company eliminated oil as a means of corrosion protection in many production areas, helping to improve CKD shipment process yields. Using Zerust® also reduced costs by eliminating the internal logistics and manpower necessary to remove the oil and clean the parts before they can be used. By using Zerust® products, they saved US$858,000 per year! Contact a Zerust® Representative for a comprehensive corrosion management solution most effective for your metal assets.
