Corrosion management for CKD overseas shipments.
Increase process yields, reduce labor and costs.
Switching to Zerust® ICT® 510-C VCI Film protects overseas shipments from corrosion and eliminates messy oils.
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.
