Corrosion inhibitors ZERUST
ZERUST is a range of packaging materials impregnated with volatile corrosion inhibitors.
Packaging materials ZERUST are finished with chemical formulations releasing into the surrounding air low concentrations of invisible, odourless and non-toxic corrosion inhibiting vapours which slow down or stop the corrosion process. The vapour molecules subsequently condense onto exposed metal surfaces and form a molecular corrosion shield that interrupts the electro-chemical corrosion process.
Zerust inhibitors condensed on metal surfaces eliminates corrosion in three ways:
- Passivate the electron flow between the anodic and cathodic areas on metal surfaces
- Add water repulsion properties to the metal surface, which inhibit water from permeating the metal surface and providing the electrolyte for corrosion reactions.
- Regulate electrolyte Ph
