AAA reports approximately 70 percent of motorists in the U.S. are at risk for expensive, dangerous vehicle rust. Rust protection for cars is critical when you consider the alternative is hundreds of dollars annually in vehicle rust repairs necessitated by exposure to new chemicals now commonly used to de-ice the roads. Communities have shifted from using rock salt to chemical de-icers, finding the chemicals melt ice and snow faster than salt and have a lower freezing point, so they last longer. The trade-off is it’s more damaging to cars.
Last year, a AAA survey revealed that over the last five years, drivers racked up more than $15 billion in rust repairs attributed to roadway de-icing. The vehicle systems most vulnerable to rust include (but aren’t limited to):
- Fuel tanks
- Brake lines
- Exhaust systems
- Frame rails
- Electrical connections
Of course, de-icing is integral to safe winter driving, given that 22 percent of vehicle crashes (about 1.26 million), 19 percent of injuries and 16 percent of fatalities are weather-related, according to the Federal Highway Administration. Snow and ice impact vehicle performance (specifically, traction, stability and maneuverability). However, rust on cars is a real problem, and our rust prevention experts know it goes far beyond simple cosmetics. Read More ›

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.
