Historically, companies have relied on oils, grease and solvents to prevent rust on metal or metal parts. No matter what the formulation, these rust prevention liquids (RPs) have come at a “cost” — a cost to the environment, a cost to the health and safety of employees, and at a cost to a company’s bottom line for their failure rate to prevent rust effectively.
Armor Protective Packaging® has spent more than 40 years developing rust prevention methods that are clean, safe, easy and that “save” — save time, save money, and save metal/metal parts from damage and reworking.
While ARMOR offers a full line of paper and poly film packaging materials that contain its VCI Nanotechnology™ (which stands for vapor corrosion inhibitor) to keep the surface of metal free from rust, ARMOR also offers its own water-based RP called Dry Coat.
We at ARMOR found a way to make a “clean break” from the mess and hazards of oil/grease/solvent-based rust prevention by developing our own water-based RP that is easy to apply, dries quickly, isn’t sticky or tacky, and that protects ferrous metals stored indoors for up to one year — it’s our Dry Coat and Dry Coat ST Rust Preventative — Invisible Protection, Visible Results.
