Rust. The stuff gets everywhere, if you let it. And for those of us in the American Northeast (aka, the Rust Belt) it’s a way of life. But we know we’re not alone. That’s why we stay up nightly thinking of new ways to prevent the stuff from spreading the world over.

Rust Never Sleeps, they say. Yeah, well, neither does Zerust.

The lesson is simple: Let your stuff sit long enough, exposed and unprotected to the elements (anything really – from the smallest doohickey to the most monumental machine) and – if it’s made of metal – eventually it will fall victim to the ravages of time.

What is rust anyway?

Well it’s elementary actually. Literally. Rust is slang for iron oxide, which occurs when iron or an alloy that contains iron, like steel, is exposed to air and water for a long period of time. Over time, the air combines with the metal at a molecular (or atomic level), thus forming a brand new compound called an oxide and weakening the bonds of the metal itself.

But what do we really know about rust?

Well, given enough time, oxygen, and water, any iron mass will eventually change completely to rust and come apart. That’s about all there is to it. Fascinating stuff to be sure. A visual representation of the natural order of things unfolding around us in real time right before our very eyes. But here at Zerust, we’ve developed the perfect antidote.

Behold!

Let’s face it. Rust is gnarly. Rust is tough. Rust is the stuff of legend, a constant reminder that time marches on and it’s up to us to fight it with whatever tools we have at our disposal. That’s why we’re here.

Rust repair, rust protection. How to stop rust? This is the stuff that keeps us up at night.

Cleaning House – In Appreciation of the Zerust Poly Bag

Summer is here and all of us at Z-HQ Headquarters have been cleaning up around the shop. Prepping for the summer, we’ve taken time to tally up all that rust inhibitor, rust busting, anti tarnish treatment that you’ve come to know and love from us.

Man, we got down to business

We tallied one rust buster after another, and made a checklist of the many corrosion protection solutions we’ve brought to the global marketplace over the years.

We wiped our gear down with a genuine Zerust Anti-tarnish cloth, swept the shop floor with a little elbow grease, organized all the items on our shelves, and even secured all storage space with a mess of fresh Zerust Vapor Capsules to boot.

Curious thing. As we we rummaged, we stumbled across a stack of our multipurpose VCI Poly Bags. Never one to waste a good resource, we put the Poly Bags to good use, and wrapped our valuables in them for safekeeping. Then we put them safely in boxes and placed them back on the shelf. Then we took a look around, saw that it was good, and cracked a cold one. We never cease to impress even ourselves.

As our minds began to wander, it occurred to us…

The global marketplace calls for the shipment of goods and services across the globe, and around the clock, summer, winter, spring, and fall. But that doesn’t mean that inventory is always moving. Depending on demand, sometime it sits on a shelf in your shop or warehouse for extended periods of time, waiting to be taken out of inventory and shipped out to some exciting new locale.

If you’re a Parts and Service Manager, for instance, or a Shipping and Warehouse honcho – or you run your own body shop, consider protecting your inventory for the long haul and the idle times. Ensure it’s as good as new when the time comes to pull it from the shelf and ship it out. Consider Zerust Multipurpose VCI Poly Bags – because you don’t have the time, capacity or bandwidth to monitor the shape of all your parts on every shelf from day to day over extended periods of time.

What is it?

Manufactured in a full range of sizes, these nifty rust proof sacks protect all of your metal tools, machine parts, engines and other ferrous metal items that are, by nature, vulnerable to rust and oxidation. But this ain’t your grandfather’s plastic bag, no sir.

Zerust lightweight but durable Multipurpose VCI Poly storage bags are manufactured with all of the advancements in rust corrosion prevention that you’ve come to expect from us. For a kick off, we manufacture our Poly Bags in a variety of sizes with a wealth of VCI (Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors) therein. The VCI agents that line the bags serve as a extra defense, another layer of protection against oxidation and erosion. And with our convenient closure options – secured by either zip or (aka self sealing) or twist ties – each Polybag will keep your metal parts, tools, and electronics air tight.

So if you too are tidying up your shop, workbench, or warehouse before hitting that holiday road this season, consider the peace of mind you’ll get in knowing your inventory is safe and sound, even while it sits in reserve. Consider a solution, a safeguard for your parts and inventory from your trusted rust proofing friends, the reliable ant-rust experts at Zerust.

And that’ll do it for now. Thanks for sticking around and keeping us company while we tidied up the workbench for the summer holiday. We’ll be back after the 4th of July. Until then, Happy Birthday, America! Here’s wishing a safe holiday to you and yours.
