RST Foam For Rust Prevention

If you’re a manufacturer, you know how important it is to protect your metal equipment and parts from rust.  Rust can cause costly damage resulting in production slow down or shutdown.

Traditional rust prevention methods like messy and hazardous RP oils and grease, or even some VCI paper or poly applications, can be labor intensive.  Every metal part must be individually handled to ensure they are protected, which is a drain on your company resources.

By working with our partners, the Eradicators of Rust at Armor Protective Packaging®, Diverse Global has developed a quick and easy solution that can save you time and money called RST Foam for Rust Prevention. This new foam is specifically designed for use in your material handling container when you are shipping or storing metal parts.

We’ve added ARMOR’s special formula of rust-preventing VCI (vapor corrosion inhibitor) to the foam.  In the presence of metal, the VCI releases vapors that attach to the surface of metal to create a blanket of protection that blocks moisture and other corrosive elements.  With RST Foam for Rust Prevention, your metal parts will stay clean and rust-free, reducing the need for frequent maintenance and replacements.

Work smarter, not harder, to keep metal parts clean and corrosion free with RST Foam for Rust Prevention – it is lightweight, flexible and can be sized to fit any of our products including the RZR Rack!

Testing at ARMOR Labs is performed in a HARSHAW humidity cabinet which provides an environment that promotes/accelerates the corrosion process. Test pieces are exposed to this harsh environment for a period. The temperature inside the humidity chamber is controlled at 98°F – 105°F, while the tower water was at 120°F, maintaining a relative humidity of 95 – 99%.

Because of the type of chamber, the actual testing parameters are like the ASTM D1748 Water Fog and/or the ASTM B-117 Salt Fog test without the salt.

Testing performed at ARMOR Labs is considered comparative testing using a HARSHAW Salt Fog humidity chamber without salt.
