Why is rust a problem in the marine and export industry?

The harsh marine climate brings with it extremely high salt and moisture levels, these highly concentrated levels cause significant corrosion to steel, infrastructure and assets in or around marine environments.

If corrosion is left untreated, it will eat away the structural integrity of metal, whether it be a boat, a storage shed, a building or a car.

It has been estimated that the total cost of marine corrosion worldwide is between $50-$80 billion every year (Maritime Industry), even energy companies are in a constant battle against corrosion, with the effects of corrosion causing huge financial costs.

Once corrosion or ‘rust’ sets in the strength of metal gradually weakens and becomes brittle, thus leading to expensive repairs or potential accidents if the metal is left untreated.


How can Armor help?

For more than 35 years, ARMOR has offered a full line of protective packaging products that include paper, poly film and desiccants infused with our proprietary vapor corrosion inhibiting (VCI) Nanotechnology.  Our Metal Rescue and Dry Coat products are liquids designed to remove rust and prevent its return.

Our products protect all metal parts from corrosion or rust by surrounding the exposed metal with a protective barrier of VCI. Boat parts, motors, fishing tackle, storage sheds, tools, pipes, car parts, gates and building structures can be protected from the costly effects of corrosion by choosing the most appropriate products from our range.

All ARMOR products are clean, safe, easy to use, and extremely effective.
