Prevent Foundry & Casting Corrosion with the use of Zerust® VCI Products

Foundry’s integrity and brand reputation rely upon supplying corrosion-free parts to their customer.

Flash rust is a common issue for foundries, due to high humidity at the facility which is created by metal processing. Without the right rust-inhibiting method, long-term and short-term storage of cast metal parts can become compromised.

Zerust® has helped foundries replace oils and solvents with the use of our safe, non-toxic, and environmentally friendly VCI products. Our proprietary Activ™ VCI products are formulated with Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) combined with a Volatile Flash Corrosion Inhibitor (FCI™) to protect ferrous metals. This combination goes to work in minutes to protect against both flash rust and long-term corrosion when there are concerns about manufacturing processes and fluids leaving corrosive residues.
