Understanding Auto Manufacturing Process for better Corrosion Control

A vehicle is an assembly of all components; the processes that are used significantly impact corrosion resistance. Therefore it is critical to have a fair understanding of the manufacturing processes and other methods used to join the parts together. The commonly used processes for converting sheet steel to a proper vehicle body are: i.    Stamping is commonly used for forming the components of structural underbody. A two-piecedie set is inserted into a hydraulic or mec...

VCI Film and VCI Oils – Specifications and Applications

When almost every industry in the world is running on metal-based machines, one has to be precautious about the worst enemy of the metal - rust. Corrosion in the long run weakens the metal and disintegrates the surface and hence destroys the products. Eventually, you have to spend your resources and money. Metal can be corroded in any step: manufacturing, assembling, storing and transporting, if the right measures haven’t been taken. With the advancement in the scientific study of biotechno...

Use of Coating for Rust Prevention in the Auto Industry

As a first line of protection against corrosion, structural components of automobiles are coated with hot molten wax, auto-deposition electro-coat, metallic, organic, or powder. Phosphate conversion coatings enhance paint adhesion and thereby aids in resisting corrosion. Hot molten wax coatings are usually used under body components to prevent corrosion. The e-coating process is a process in which electrically charged particles are used to coat a part. Metallic coatings such as zinc, aluminiu...

Cost of Rust

Corrosion is an expensive enemy causing losses running into billions each year for companies. Industrialized nations all over the globe are facing similar issues and this condition is being further aggravated by the increasing shift towards international shipping and purchasing. This is in turn aggravating the corrosion issue and increasing losses. With cost of resources and energy on a perpetual increase, cost of corrosion is bound to only increase. These are a few challenges that all indust...

What is the Present Day Significance of Corrosion Protection Coatings in Protecting Steel Architectures?

Steel is the preferred metal choice in many industries as it has high durability and is readily available in the market. Moreover, it is low in cost and provides superior protection to structures made out of it. It is kind of interesting to note that corrosion happens mainly because of rust. Rust is permeable to water and air that allows for the corrosion of metal after the formation of rusted metal. Rust is common to find in metal and steel surfaces, and it depends heavily on outside atmosph...

Corrosion: Devasting Effects On Structures And Metals

Corrosion can destroy the metals completely and can have a drastic effect on the life of the metals too. It results to huge loss of money every year. There are different methods available in the market to combat this corrosion and among all these methods corrosion inhibitors are used widely and the most useful method to prevent the corrosion. Corrosion inhibitors are used to protect metals from corrosion by offering the temporary protection during storage along with localized protection. The cor...

HEALTH HAZARDS OF METALWORKING FLUIDS (MWFS)

Metalworking fluids (MWFs) can negatively impact health when it gets into contact with skin or inhaled. Contaminants include mist, spray or aerosol. Exposure to airborne elements have led to grave health related issues like irritation of the throat, lungs, eyes, nose; acne, asthma, dermatitis, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, irritable upper respiratory tract, and cancers of multiple types. Severity of health issues depend on factors like type and degree of contamination, exposure duration etc. ...
