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.

Thanks to many a sleepless night spent obsessing over ways to keep rust at bay, we at Zerust Headquarters have been rewarded with a generous helping of Eureka moments! Voila! Like a bolt of lightning in the night, or a lightbulb over the head in the middle of the day. Zap! Wham-o! There it is!

There’s just no telling when inspiration will strike. Point is, new ideas for more advanced rust prevention methods just keep coming to us, and we’re happy to share them with you.

We at Zerust Headquarters insist on bringing only top quality rust proofing products to market. We obsess over every detail to give you the tools you need to fight the good fight against the ravages of time. Our patented rust preventers are the best rust treatment solutions money can buy. This explains why people the world over have turned to Zerust time and time again.

Check out our Products Page. We’ve got anti-rust treatment solutions for all types of products, for all seasons. From gun oil to keep you firing on all cylinders, to protection from the elements for your A/C unit or your motorcycle. Take your pick. It’s a veritable fountain of youth for your valuables.

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.

THE VCI [VAPOR CAPSULE INHIBITOR] – HOW DOES IT WORK?

For those of you out there who are fans of Zerust trusted line of rust protection, rust inhibitor, and rust repellent rust inhibitor products, and regular readers to the Z-HQ Workbench Blog, first we’d like to say thank you for your patronage. We’re glad you’ve stopped by. As a token of our esteem, we’d like to answer one of the most common questions we get from our many satisfied customers regarding one of our most revolutionary products.

“Man, this stuff really works…But how?”

By now you’ve heard us talk an awful lot about our patented Zerust Vapor Capsules [VC1-1 to VC6-1] and perhaps you’ve wondered, how does this stuff really work?

At Zerust, we design our rust prevention rust inhibitor products based on an inherent need for improvement. We at Zerust are Tradesmen and Tradeswomen, Outdoor enthusiasts, and licensed and bonded professionals ourselves, and we identified a need at the ground level – on the shop floor – and so we endeavored to fill it with the most reliable, effective corrosion inhibitor products on the market.

Of course, we invested considerable amounts of time and money ourselves in purchasing our own high-end storage units for personal use. Like you, we also struggled with the ravages of time on our own hardware (inside toolboxes, breaker boxes, storage shelves, etc.). We wanted to provide a solution for the ages, literally. Now, thanks to years of research and a whole lot of trial and error, you no longer have to invest in an expensive solutions like a pewter oak storage chest for your firearms, or a high end tool box for your tools and electronics.

If you’re operating on a tight budget, or you’d just like to provide a little extra TLC to your belongings while they are in storage, consider keeping your metals and electronics safe by introducing one of our patented Zerust Vapor Capsules into the mix.

Trial. Error. Success.

After many years of experimentation with different combinations of materials, we finally arrived at just the right combination of agents to extend the life of your tools and electronics. Easily one of our most significant breakthroughs to date, the Zerust Vapor Capsule measures in around the size of a 9v battery and resembles something like a blackboard eraser. Likewise, they’re just as easy to use, convenient, inconspicuous, and effective.

We’ve fine tuned the capsules over time, and today we produce and manufacture each one according to spec – with just the right amount of rust inhibitor inside. Note: The Zerust Vapor Capsule comes in a variety of different iterations and can protect a variable radius for a varying length of time. Just slip one into the area you’d like most to protect and let the capsules do their thing. Each individual Zerust Vapor Capsule fits comfortably in most storage containers.

For a visual representation of just how well Zerust Vapor Capsule inhibitors work their magic, check out our Zerust Product Page on YouTube:

Mother’s Day is this weekend, and you know what that means? The race is on to officially prep your home and garden for summertime. First order of business – rust protection and facing head-on the ravages of winter to your prized possessions and property. Of course the yard needs work, the porch steps need a new coat of paint, and the garage could use a thorough cleaning. Par for the course, all of it. But what about all of your stuff? Your bicycles? Your motorcycle? Stowed away, they’ve been waiting all season, vulnerable to the ruins of time. And then there’s your home air conditioning unit – all winter long, sitting in the yard, exposed to the elements.

Come summertime, these items will acquire a new level of significance in terms of their impact on your quality of life and leisure time. And some, like that hard working A/C unit, will soon be working overtime to keep your family comfortable through the hottest of months. Best to treat them right.

So make the rounds, and survey your property. You’ll soon discover that the off season was not kind to many of your things: Your outdoor central air unit looks battered. And as for your family’s fleet of bikes and motorcycles, they’ve emerged from the winter months with tiny flecks of rust on their spokes, wheels, gears, and frames – nature’s equivalent of a five o’clock shadow for shiny metal objects.

Fact is, time goes by awfully fast, and the curse of the elements are always encroaching on your property. It’s a life long struggle, but well worth the effort if you invest in just the right amount of TLC.

Plan ahead, and take preventative measures today for any battles you might face against the elements tomorrow. Add preventative maintenance for next season to your springtime to-do list with Zerust’s long line of sleek, smart, Anti-Corrosion Covers, designed to protect everything from Bicycles and Motorcycles to Central Air units for your home.

Zerust Blog: The Z-HQ Workbench

Hello & welcome to the new Z-HQ Workbench, our official spot on the web for blogging about all things Zerust. Cue the balloons, strike up the band! Bring in the dancing girls. That’s right, folks. We here at Zerust are going to take time out from our duties as the anti corrosion kings, the rust inhibitor distributors, the protectors and defenders of all things bright and shiny to bring you helpful, handy, tarnish proof tips on how to keep your world corrosion free.

For this, the inaugural Z-HQ Workbench, we’d like to put the spotlight on one of the newest additions to the Zerust family of products, our new Zerust No-Rust Non-Slip Drawer Liner. Designed for the handyman or woman who takes pride in their tools, the Zerust No-Rust Non-Slip Drawer Liner is a welcome addition to any workspace. It Provides rust protection for steel, iron, brass, copper, aluminum, silver, nickel, nearly all the treasures of the earth pampered in this innovative, new, non-slip revelation.


How does it work?
The Zerust Toolbox Drawer Liners combine our patented corrosion-inhibiting formula with a heavy duty non-slip rubber. This odorless, non-toxic rust prevention technology and drawer liner work together to protect your tools and tackle from rust and corrosion. They create an invisible shield around your aluminum, brass, copper, iron, steel, and silver from rust.

Good for your tackle box, storage cabinets, toolboxes, shelves, drawers, truck boxes, and jewelry boxes. This stuff has many functions. If it’s a precious metal, it’s gonna cozy up to the zerus no-rust non slip drawer liner nice and snug.

  • Cut to size
  • Prevent tools and other items from denting, slipping, and gathering mold and mildew
  • Fire Retardant
  • Easy to wipe clean with a soapy or damp cloth.

Our corrosion inhibitors last up to five years, after which time the drawer liners can be re-used, re-cut and re-purposed.

You know what they say, you can tell a lot about a person by how clean their shop is. We understand. Ya see, here at Zerust, we’re not only anti corrosion obsessed, we’re clean freaks too, without shame. Our Non-slip drawer is designed for the more finicky among us who understand that, YES, your tools do all the dirty work. But that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve a little pampering too. Finished with a big job? Don’t just toss your tools, tuck them in. And thanks to Zerust’s non-slip drawer liner, you can also keep them extra tidy too.  

To prove this, we recently took our drawer liners to task. We found a nice big, sexy corrugated tool box (see photos) [Man, what a beauty], cut the drawer liner to size, and filled it with a nice set of tools. This snug new solution from Zerust is a real silver saver, an anti tarnish treatment tool for the ages. Dang if our tools weren’t snoring by the end of the experiment.

But it’s more than pampering. The Drawer liner actually extends the life of your tools because they are manufactured with our patented drawer liner material, and our time tested corrosion inhibitors.

And if that’s not enough, go ahead, crack a couple beers and sodas, spill them all over the inside and just generally get the stuff real messy. No worries. You’ll find that this product cleans up nice and easy. 

So tuck those tools away nice and tight for a good night’s sleep. Keep them corrosion free for years to come with the new Zerust No Rust Non-Slip Drawer Liner.
