Rust and Corrosion Prevention

There is no denying the fact that the most despised and vulgar four-letter word in metal manufacturing is rust. International Chemical Company has been expertly developing and manufacturing highly effective rust inhibitors and preventatives for more than 100 years. A formulation which provides consistent and ultimately reliable corrosion and rust resistance—manufactured by a specialty chemical company with unparalleled expertise in this arena—is the only surefire way to assure the best performance of any metal-forming or metalworking operation where protection from the forces of oxidation is absolutely paramount. Matching the demands for increased rates of production in dwindling timeframes are superior rust preventatives and corrosion-resistant coatings that are formulated specifically to conquer the challenges faced by many of today's manufacturers. Since our founding in 1906, ICC has been painstakingly researching, developing and optimizing corrosion prevention coatings and powerful rust inhibitors that exceed the increasing performance requirements of manufacturers. Together, we will evaluate your operations, discuss all available options, determine the ideal solutions and deliver the best rust preventatives and customer service in the industry.

Synthetic Formulations: Rust inhibitors that contain no petroleum or mineral oil byproducts and are formulated with synthetic components are gaining in popularity among all sorts of metal manufacturers. Synthetic rust preventatives offer noteworthy benefits that are not provided by straight and soluble oil rust inhibitors. At ICC, we are passionate about our synthetic, water-based and water-soluble rust preventatives. They are specially formulated with chemical components that are economical, clean and very low-foaming, highly stable, non-toxic, non-hazardous and environmentally responsible. All synthetic rust preventatives manufactured by ICC impart corrosion-resistant coatings that are dry-to-the-touch, helping to keep processed components, storage containers, associated packaging and workspaces much cleaner. Over the past three decades of meticulous research and development, ICC has continued to offer high-performance synthetic rust inhibitors for corrosion and oxidation protection. Due to the efforts of our technical staff and family leadership, ICC's valued customers receive the most advanced water-based synthetic rust preventatives and inhibitors.

Straight and Soluble Oils: For periods of long-term storage and transcontinental and long-haul shipping, straight and soluble oils remain the most effective corrosion and oxidation preventatives for manufactured and processed metal components. The corrosion-resistant coatings imparted by straight and soluble oil rust inhibitors are able to performing extraordinarily well in a wide variety of environmental conditions, from high heat to biting cold, from bone-dry to humid and salty environmental conditions. ICC emphasizes the incorporation of advanced technology additives and highly refined mineral oils in our straight and soluble oil rust preventatives and inhibitors. Through the utilization of unique emulsion packages (for water-soluble oils), highly advanced additive technology and specialized bio-resistant components, ICC's straight and soluble oil rust and corrosion preventatives are much stronger, cleaner, longer lasting and vastly more efficient than any mineral oil-based rust inhibitors available today.

Evaporative Solvents: For those metal manufacturing operations requiring a rust preventative that "vanishes," so to speak, ICC's evaporative solvent corrosion inhibitors are what you seek. They are specially formulated with potent additives and low-viscosity, highly refined safety solvents which result in rust inhibitors that are able to perform extraordinarily well within a broad spectrum of manufacturing applications. From temporary, in-process corrosion protection as well as rust inhibition for medium- and long-term indoor storage, to preservation in the extreme salt spray conditions typical of transcontinental shipping, the powerful, effective evaporative solvent-based rust inhibitors manufactured by ICC are sure to meet any performance requirement.
