Control is best word to use. Corrosion is the natural process that returns materials back to their natural state. With the exception of gold, metals such as aluminum, steel (and its various alloys), copper do not naturally exist in a usable form. Man has learned how to process various ores and oxides into a form that they desire. Corrosion or sometimes oxidation is simply the reversal of these processes and in time “refined” metals will return to their natural unprocessed state.
Corrosion Protection & Solutions business model is to determine the cause of what we call corrosion and develop a product and/or process to greatly slow down the natural process. We do not believe that “one size fits all” so by careful examination and experience, we tailor a specific solution to specific corrosion problems. Over the years we have been ask to find a solution for a problem that we had already solved. The result is that we have a “basket” of solutions/products so we do not have to reinvent the wheel with every inquiry. We have products that, as far as I know, are unique to us.
In our basket of products you will find products that convert iron oxides (rust) to an inert compound, thereby, elimination the existing rust. You will find products that work only on copper, only on aluminum on steel and/or iron. We make all of the products in bulk and when the products are needed in the aerosol form, we send the bulk product to a contract packaging company where they put in aerosol cans. Our products can be applied by brushing, dipping, spraying or even by wipes. We make/provide lubricants, corrosion preventative compounds (cpc) and even lubricants containing cps’s. We make products using solvents as a base or water as a base and even products that are applied without being diluted. One thing that makes CP&S unique is that we do NOT make flammable products. When we formulate our products we take into consideration the: environment, specific gravity, molecular size and how long the protection needs to last.
