Almost every industry is affected by metal corrosion, but the problem much more pronounced in the industrial manufacturing sector. If not managed properly, this can lead to assembly line shutdowns, massive re-work and may even jeopardize a products’ ability to meet essential standard approval criteria.
Metal corrosion can considerably increase labour costs due to customer service complaints, multiple meetings to identify and resolve problems, inspections, and re-working materials to remove rust. Defective goods are also subject to additional shipping costs the manufacturer must cover, as well as the cost of producing a new product. However, in most situations, rust corrosion can be effectively managed or slowed down, or completely stopped by using the proper techniques.
