Zerust HQ – Workbench
The Holidays are here and the family’s coming to stay for awhile. You find yourself wondering what to do while they’re in town, invading your home. A nice walk in the woods? Sure. A stroll through the village square? Of course. Perhaps a trip to the Botanical Gardens to view the Gingerbread Houses on display. Nice and quaint. Then, some ice skating. Yeah. This winter, that’s where the action is, and the weather’s just right for it.
So you pull out your skates and remember that you had the foresight to cover your blade with Zerust Skate Guard Covers last season. You take your skates out of the bag, and Wow, as good as new. Well played, Wayne Gretzky, well played.
Keep the Holidays Merry indeed with Zerust rust killer Skate Guard Covers while extending the life of your ice skates.
Zerust Skate Covers are designed to protect the life of your blades for up to five years by keeping them safe from the ravages of rust that set in over time.
No rusting. No dulling. Rust away old man winter. Zerust Skate Guard covers are designed to offer the best rust killer protection for your gear. They fit nicely around all manner of hockey and figure skates, and they’re essential to keeping blades sharp for all manner of sport or recreation.
Zerust Skate Guard Covers not only fit nicely around your blades, they also befit a well executed rust stopping regimen for everyone out there who’s serious about the ice. Proper care of your skates can extend their life and keep you you moving swiftly and gracefully on the ice. Keep your blades sharp by following these simple rust prevention methods:
- Wear skate guard covers when walking on hard surfaces (before you hit the ice) to avoid dulling your blades. Dents, dings, and scratches to your blades will make them vulnerable to rust.
- After skating, be sure to always thoroughly wipe and dry your blades before putting them in the skate guard cover. Otherwise you run the risk of trapping the moisture and hastening rust.
- Always put the anti rust skate guard covers on before storing skates in a sack during the off season. This ensures the quality of your blades and other belongings in your bag.
Happy Holidays! Now go get your skate on thanks to the anti rust coating technology of Zerust skate guard covers!

Z-HQ – WorkBench 10/31/17
My favorite thing to do on Halloween as a kid was to dress up as a ghost. My mom would crudely cut a few holes in a bedsheet for my eyes and mouth, throw it over my head, loosely wrap a belt around my neck to keep the sheet on, and off I’d go trick or treating with my friends through the neighborhood. With the exception of the belt wrapped around my neck (this was the seventies after all. We didn’t know any better back then), it was a great costume and I had a hell of a lot of fun wearing it.
And so in honor of Halloween, and my favorite childhood costume we’re going to talk about Zerust Car Covers. But most importantly, it’s getting to that time of year when precious things go in storage in order to protect them from the elements.
If you’ve got a set of wheels that only go out on special occasions or, at the very least, when the weather’s fair, now’s a good time to invest in one of these corrosion proof, water resistant, mold proof, and of course, rust-inhibiting doohickeys. Fun Fact: I just put one of these babies over my ‘66 Fairlane for the season and man it feels good knowing that classic short will be kept warm and dry, snug, and rust free all winter long.
Whether it’s a valuable antique or a collectible automobile you’re storing, or just a sweet set of wheels that you’re extra precious about, keep it safe this season from the damages of rust, corrosion, dust and moisture with a Zerust Car Cover. But make no mistake. This ain’t no flimsy bedsheet.
Zerust Car covers are woven with Zerust’s patented VCI (Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors) corrosion-inhibiting formulas which add an extra layer of rust protection on the surface of your car.
So, go ahead, fight the elements and even father time himself. And, in honor of Halloween, have a bit of fun by giving your car the chance to ghost through the winter months with this heavy duty, rust preventing overlay. It’s like your car becomes a phantom, free from the laws of decay and deterioration that govern this dimension. Let’s just hope the thing just doesn’t light up at night, blaring the golden oldies station like Stephen King’s Christine.
Whoa! Now we’re getting into the spirit of the season, Z-Lings. Happy Halloween!
In hopes of adding a little culture to the old toolbox, we offer up a bit of verse, a touch of class in the form of a poetry. Zerust poetry that is. Sure, we’re serious about a rust free future for all. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have our sensitive side. And so, to keep the muses in motion, we bring you the Z-HQ Workbench Poetry Corner.
[Note: In this installment, we honor the open road with some rough and tumble biker poetry. Dedicated to all you gearheads out there who understand the importance of keeping your motor clean, and your gears rust and corrosion free. Why poetry, you ask? Well, we at Zerust feel that the products we provide are designed to keep your life moving, like poetry in motion. What better way to illustrate this than through the written word?
Friend, let me ride
Swift and fast and free
Out along the open road
From sea to shining sea.
From the Great Lakes
To the Shenandoah
To the Gulf of Mexico
To the open plains
And the iron range
And the Alamo.
Through rain and hail and sleet and snow
Sun and wind and the great plateau
Through desert storms of sand and dust
I’ll make it clear, I’ll make a fuss
I insist on the best, Zerust!
Zerust for my two wheeled pony
Cos it gets me there in style
Zerust is my one and only
To go that extra mile.
The roar of the pipes
The engine screams
Hear me comin’ a mile away
Man alive, I’m living the dream.
Zerust is the top shelf rust inhibitor
To keep the rust away
My main corrosion prohibitor
So good, it’s almost cliche.
Every time my two wheeled pony
Crackles and combusts
I hear trumpets sounding and choirs singing
The sweet tune of Zerust.
It’s the open road I need
The open road I crave
Gotta have my freedom
Before they carry me to my grave.
Nothing can hold me down
I’ll ride until the end
With Zerust in my wheelhouse
I know I can depend.
For their products keep my motor clean
And running super tight
If you ask me what I mean my friend
I’ll tell you, “Zerust, day and night!”
So if you’ve got the wanderlust
I’ll tell you what to do
Get yourself some Zerust
For rust protection through and through.
And that, Dear Z-lings, wraps up this edition of the Zerust Poetry Corner. Until next time, remember to keep your motor clean this winter with a new Zerust Motorcycle Cover.

For this month’s installment of the Z-HQ Workbench, dear Z-lings, we’re going to take a step back and feature a little feedback from one of our new customers. This next message comes from Ben Kilbane, of Chicago, Illinois. Ben is a blues musician who collects vintage musical instruments for a hobby. He’s the owner of some extraordinarily rare, vintage gear and he’s always looking for ways to better preserve his investments. Ben writes:
I’m a blues musician here in Chicago, Illinois, a guitarist mainly. I own a number of rare, vintage guitars, and my favorite is a 1962 Fender Telecaster. [This is the one with the vintage saddle and bridge. It’s a beautiful, classic guitar just like the one Steve Cropper used during his time with Booker T. & The MG’s. Y’know the one, “Green Onions”? “Slim Jenkins Place” “Hip Hug-Her”?] It’s my main axe, and it’s been around a long time – over fifty years rocking the world. Naturally I want to ensure that it last another fifty years or more – for my children, and, god willing, their children too.
To be sure, this old Telecaster [I call her Thea by the way] takes a beating. I gig out regularly, so old Thea submits to a lot of blood, sweat, and the occasional tear depending on how hot my band is playing that night. You name it. I towel her off after every show, but it’s not enough. The old vintage saddle can only be cleaned so much. What I’ve found is that no matter how much TLC I give it, there’s still a bit of rust build up around the hardware. Drives me crazy. I keep it cloaked with a clean, dry towel when it’s inside the case. But I’ve discovered over the years that’s not enough either.
I needed to find a newer, more stealth solution to keep it from rusting. So I went on the lookout. Fortunately a friend of mine who’s a mechanic and swears by your products [he keeps a Vapor Capsule in every one of his toolboxes] tipped me off and suggested I put a Vapor capsule inside my guitar case alongside old “Thea the Tele”. I figure what the heck? It can’t hurt.
So I went to my local hardware store and bought a whole bundle, one for each of my guitars in fact. Now I’ve got one inside every guitar case alongside every guitar in my collection. I’ll keep you posted as to how things turn out.
Thank you, Ben, for getting in touch with us here at Zerust. And thank you for giving our Vapor Capsules a shot. Although, traditionally, we’ve been known more among people like your good friend, the mechanic, we’re happy to bring our rust protection technology and products to the world of music. We’re confident we can help with the preservation of your classic instruments.
Lastly, we look forward to hearing from you with updates on how our Vapor Capsules are helping to keep the blues alive in Chicago, and your vintage gear in tip top shape!

I stumbled across an old table saw recently while cleaning up my shop. It’s a beautiful piece of hardware, given to me by my grandfather. That table saw launched many a home improvement project – like the beautiful deck that graces the back of my parent’s home. I’m honored to have that table saw, and lucky too. So I endeavor to keep it clean. Time and hard lessons learned over the years have taught me that, when it comes to your tools, heirlooms or otherwise, you’ve got to take the necessary steps to keep them clean and safe from the effects of rust and corrosion.
Funny thing too about that table saw – my grandfather actually kept it in its original box. Funny. He probably thought he was doing a commendable thing in storing it the way he did. It’s characteristic of him. He was a fastidious guy, intent on keeping his tools and shop very clean. Trouble is, the box wasn’t enough to save the table saw from the ravages of time.
I received the saw as a housewarming gift, you can learn more about it here as it was for my first home years ago. By the time it came into my possession, the thing (and the box it came in) had seen better days. I commended my Grandfather as I pulled it from the dusty, faded old cardboard carton with the peeling images of home improvements past still visible on it.
Luckily I was able to clean the thing up, replace the blade, and get it back in business. My grandfather would be proud, God bless him.
I got wise. I’ve since retired that old box from the manufacturer and replaced it with a Zerust Table Saw Cover.
Make no mistake, the rust will come. Like it or not, your shop gets gnarly. Dust. Moisture. Mold. Run of the mill stuff, as you can see the post. Regular open air exposure too can cause many wrongs over time.For repairs there is a popular fire and water restoration service in Minneapolis, MN
Keep your table saw nice and snug. Cover it for generations to come with Zerust Table Saw Covers. Rest assure, these covers keep your table saw safe and sound because Zerust Table Saw covers are blessed with our patented rust prevention technology. All of the revolutionary protection you’ve come to expect from all Zerust products are embedded within these covers. Revolutionary developments in rust protection simply come standard with all of Zerust products. Benefits like:
- The non-toxic vapors that coat your saws and blades with invisible protection, thus keeping them safe from harmful rust and corrosion.
- Our superior corrosion-inhibiting formula providing VCI (Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor) protection on the surface of your table saw.
- That good old Zerust 5 year plan, guaranteed: The formulas in our products remain active and provide protection for five years.
And so, dear Z-lings. With only one month left to the glorious summer of 2017, there’s still time to bust that baby out and get some work done. You’re itching to do so. Whether you’re working on your deck, making new kitchen cabinets with some expert help from
this page, cutting hard wood planks for new hardwood floors. Go for it. Make hay while the sun shines. But, remember, when the time comes to clean up your shop, and put away your tools, skip all the oil and water displacement sprays and snake oils. You can seek professional help to finish the job too, and you can find them here in case you are looking. Go with a cleaner, more air tight solution – Zerust Table Saw Covers.
Order today to receive the one anti corrosion and rust protection solution on the market that provides rust protection for years to come.

Zerust anti-corrosion products work well not only around the house and garage for personal use, but also around the warehouse and factory floor for professional use.
Here’s a bit of advice for those of you out there who are using Zerust for more highly skilled purposes.
If you’ve followed Zerust long enough, (and we know you have, dear Z-lings) by now you know that corrosion is the degradation of metal over time. When metal surfaces interact with moisture and gas (oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, carbon dioxide, and all that other stuff in the air) they begin the natural process of breaking down.
The metal wants to remain in its natural state. Unfortunately, the laws of nature dictate that rust can form on unprotected metal surfaces within hours. If you don’t protect your inventory while it’s on the shelf, it won’t be worth a hill of beans when it’s time to fulfill an order. So you’ve got to act fast and employ the right line of defense. Protect your inventory on the shop and warehouse floor with Zerust. Manage corrosion with Zerust products and services, and save your company from the extraordinary expense of wear and tear that results when inventory sits idle for extended periods of time.
Zerust products beat rust on a molecular level:
All Zerst products are produced (bestowed, constructed, forged you might say) with Zerust’s patented corrosion inhibiting vapor molecules. These patented agents have the strength to counteract the elements – ya know, all that stuff in the air like oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, etc., and, of course, moisture – that degrade metal. Yeah. That stuff. [Mother nature is one tough cookie, lemme tell ya].
When you use Zerust multipurpose VCI Poly Bags, Plastabs, or any other Zerust protective cover product, you’re conserving your valuables with scientific precision. Ya see, the anti-corrosion vapors in all of our products are emitted into the enclosed area of the bag or film and serve to protect what you keep inside. The vapor saturates the air and bonds with the metal to form a protective barrier around the metal surface. The vapor dissipates when you open the bag or cover, and saturates the air all over again when you re-seal it.
Most Industrial metal parts of good, high grade quality are manufactured with a VCI (Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor) layer. But this layer can easily wear thin over time when faced with the onslaught of the elements. As such, these VCI layers – when exposed to oxygen (and other gases in the air) and moisture – can break down completely within a couple of hours, thus leaving your stuff vulnerable. Using Zerust products for storage, however, helps keep your inventory fit for up to five years.
Packing and Handling Instructions:
- When packing parts, always go the clean and dry route, no matter what.
- Confirm that your inventory is at room temperature before packing it up for storage. If not, the moisture of colder temperatures will counteract the vapor and potentially breed rust. The rust will wreak havoc on your inventory while it sits idle on the warehouse shelf.
- Believe it or not, the natural oils on your hands and skin can wear down that thin layer of VCI that coats most high grade manufactured parts. To prevent this from happening, always wear clean and dry gloves before handling metal parts.
- When packing more than one part, be sure to include some Zerust sheets to provide separation between the metal surfaces.
- Make sure everything is packed tight to restrict airflow.
There you go. All done. Until next time, don’t let your stuff turn to dust. Turn to Zerust!
-Michael J. Miller for Zerust
Sometimes it’s the smallest, simplest things that make the biggest, most significant impact. Think Yoda in The Empire Strikes Back, or Toto in The Wizard of Oz. You don’t need to be ten feet tall to make the world a better place. And so on that note, today, we turn our attention to the Zerust Anti-Tarnish Silver Storage Bags. So basic. So simple. And yet so effective.
What is immediately apparent is their stylish appearance and elegant demeanor, yes. But rest assured. The Zerust Anti-Tarnish Silver Storage Bags fight the elements for up to five years at a time with the same level of conviction you’ve come to expect from all Zerust products.
Provide the Protection your valuables (silver jewelry, collectible coins and silverware) require with these revolutionary rust prevention pouches. And make no mistake. This is not your grandmother’s coin purse.
Though they are soft and gentle to the touch, the Zerust Anti-Tarnish Silver Storage Bags pack a mighty punch. Attractive? Of course. Heck, they’re made of satin with a heavy weave. Hard working? You bet. Surround your valuables with luxurious softness while protecting them against tarnish and damage.
So how do they work, you ask?
Well, we’ve infused the cloth with the best in Rust inhibiting agents. Placing your valuable inside these exquisite carryalls bestows upon them the wonders of the product themselves. The formula is non-toxic, residue free and cleared by the FDA as food safe. Our patented anti-tarnish, rust prevention formula emanates from within the bags themselves to protect your valuables inside. Perfect for keeping antique silver, silverware, earrings and other heirloom jewelry clean and tarnish-free.
Maintaining silver takes time. Polishing can be labor intensive. Save time and money with Zerust’s Anti-Tarnish Silver Storage Bags. We’ll keep your valuables radiant and ready for showtime for years to come.
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.
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.
Don’t let your stuff turn to dust. Turn to Zerust! We make the rust go away.

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.

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.
