Anti-corrosives: A guide

Anti-corrosives: A guide

20 March 2017

When metallic materials are placed within corrosive environments, they can endure significant chemical reactions with the surrounding air and/or water, causing them to rust.

Many of the metal parts and components of machines produced by manufacturing industries have exposed metal surfaces which require protection until brought into use or prior to further assembly.


Anti-corrosives are essential to combat corrosion and protect metal components and assemblies. An anti-corrosive product provides protection whilst exposed to a variety of differing corrosive atmospheres; indoors, outdoors, either under cover or fully exposed, in a marine environment, under effects of direct sunlight or in the presence of specific chemical corrosives in an industrial environment

The products are easily removed, provide a choice application methods and finishes, and are effective for the required protection time period during manufacture, assembly, storage or distribution.
