Application Fields of Temporary Corrosion Protection
Interoperational Corrosion Protection (In-process Protection)
Flash rust must be avoided after cleaning metal parts in a production process. To achieve this it is necessary to consider a range of variables such as the time between the different stages, the pH of the previous stage, application methods (immersion, spray, manual), removability of the protector in the next stage, water quality and so on. The Henkel technical service team can work with customers to help find the right solution that fits perfectly with the application.
Storage / warehousing
Here the required protection time and the environmental conditions (often temperature and humidity) are the main concerns. There are several corrosion protectors in the BONDERITE portfolio with protection times that vary from a few hours up to six months.
Here too the environmental circumstances in which the products are being kept are crucial for temporary corrosion protection. The challenge, however, is that these conditions change frequently while goods are being transported. Humidity, the amount of salt (especialy for goods transported by sea), temperature and so on can vary widely over a single journey.
BONDERITE® offers a complete portfolio of temporary corrosion protectors that can provide reliable protection under these changing conditions and compatibility with corrosion protection products, such as VCI technologies (volatile corrosion inhibitor).
