Corrosion Protection

Slowing Corrosion Through Cleaning and Packaging

Ensuring that metal parts are properly cleaned and packaged can produce better results than oil coating.

Understanding Corrosion

An understanding of corrosion is fundamental and essential to prevention of chemical and electrochemical deterioration. The following is a list of the different types of corrosion and their characteristics.

Corrosion Prevention for Metal Parts

There are many ways to prevent corrosion, including modifying the atmosphere by dehumidification, nitrogen purge, evacuation, and so on, and creating a barrier on the metal surface to prevent the permeation of moisture. This barrier can be formed by organic (oil/wax) liquid coating, such as formulated wet films, aqueous dry film deposition or via packaging products that contain VCI or vapor (volatile) corrosion inhibitors. This article gives information about corrosion and provides prevention procedures.

To keep corrosion away, understand that cleaning, passivation and corrosion protection are separate activities with distinct functions.


Quality & Inspection

Performing quality cleanliness tests and inspection is sometimes critical to ensure delivering a customer the cleanest parts that reach their specifications.


Here are stories that describe current industrial cleaning regulatory trends and some ways that might make satisfying customer requirements less of an obstacle.
