The manufacturer wanted to protect three main areas of their injection moulding equipment. The equipment is very expensive and the company needed to deliver a perfect product, regardless of export conditions. This included the machined surfaces, electrical and electronic components, and painted or black phosphate surfaces. The equipment spent six months to one year in domestic storage prior to shipment, three to six months in export shipment and another one to six months of storage after opening by customs at the port of entry or customers before installation. The packaging did not adequately protect the equipment during the long period of shipping and storage, which resulted in equipment failure.
The manufacturer has not experienced any corrosion problems for the last 3-4 years since Cortec® products have been used. This has saved the company a substantial amount of money in corrosion claims, rework and replacements. They have also eliminated the high cost of metallized foil vacuum packaging. This type of packaging is in the process of becoming standard in all of the manufacturer’s locations worldwide.
