Evapo-Rust® Saves Tools After Hurricane Michael

When Hurricane Michael made landfall in the Florida Panhandle in October 2018, it was packing 155-mph winds, nearly wiping Mexico Beach off the map. Retired Technical Sales Manager Mike Bentley, a resident of Port St. Joe, next to Mexico Beach, wanted to pitch in and help those affected by the record-setting storm.
Mike’s home was largely spared, but the rest of his neighborhood was devastated. As clean-up and rebuilding continues, he is busy using Evapo-Rust® Liquid Rust Remover to help friends and families restore desperately needed metal tools. Mike has been cleaning and de-rusting the tools in batches.
These are a few before-and-after photos of items that were otherwise being discarded:

8 Steps to Solving Corrosion Problems with METFAR-UP™

By answering this logical sequence of questions, you will be able to identify the right solution for your metals packaging application. It’s a simple formula, called METFAR-UP

So how does VCI work?

Corrosion inhibitor compounds vaporize from the paper or film. They are attracted to the charged surface of the metal by virtue of their polar orientation.  The VCI molecules align on the surface of the metal creating a layer of molecules on the charged metal surface. This barrier prevents oxidation.

When metals are wrapped or packaged in VCI, the chemicals volatilize in the packaging environment, forming a protective molecular layer on the surface of the metal.

Our VCI Education page explains how VCI works to protect your valuable metal parts and machinery during all stages of manufacture, export, storage, lay-up and preservation.
