Electronic Rust Prevention

Electrical components and equipment are susceptible to corrosion during operation, storage, and shipment, as variations in temperature and relative humidity over time can cause condensation along the connections. This condensation results in corrosion that causes system reliability issues, system malfunction, and intermittent connection errors, leading to production stoppages and safety hazards.

Request Information

ZERUST® corrosion inhibiting packaging products, VCI diffusers & Emitters, and Axxanol 718-ESS are all cost-effective ways of protecting electronic components and equipment from the destructive effects of corrosion during storage, shipment and operation.

ZERUST® Corrosion Inhibiting Packaging Products

ZERUST® ICT®520-CB1 Anti-Tarnish scavenger film contains ZERUST® acid-gas scavengers that protect silver and yellow metals against oxidation and tarnish caused by acid gas environments. Use ZERUST® ICT®520-CB1 to protect silver items, copper wiring, and electronic components from corrosion during storage and shipment.

ZERUST® VCI Diffusers & Emitters

ZERUST® Vapor Capsules are portable capsules that contain patented ZERUST® VCI technology. Use Vapor Capsules to protect metals in hard-to-reach areas of control panels, electrical cabinets, and other enclosed spaces during storage, shipment, and operation.

ZERUST® ActivDri™ Packets are patent-pending, economical, effective, and easy-to-use dual action, moisture control vapor corrosion inhibitor (VCI) sachet products. ActivDri™ Corrosion Prevention and Moisture Control Packets protect against environmental contaminants and humidity that aggressively corrodes metal parts, components, electronics, and electrical components/equipment during operation, shipping, and storage.

ZERUST® Rust Preventatives

ZERUST® Axxanol™ 718-ESS is a multimetal electrical corrosion inhibitor spray designed for challenging environments with acid gas vapors and humidity. ZERUST® Axxanol™ 718-ESS leaves a thin, water-displacing, non-staining, non-hardening, soft film. Axxanol™ 718-ESS can be used to protect electronic components, electric cabinets, junction boxes, and all types of metallic sliding parts to provide corrosion protection and lubrication. Easy to use, suited for in-service use, and intended for indoor and short-term outdoor protection and lubrication.
