Technical data sheet pdf:

RustBan® is saving one Ford facility $136,000 per year in materials and labor, while reducing waste and the risk of injury

RustBan® is a Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) treatment for corrugated boxes and other types of primary packaging. It can eliminate the material and handling costs associated with placing corrosible products into secondary VCI-treated bags or wrappings.

Metal products can be quickly and easily placed into RustBan®-treated primary packages for storage or shipping. This takes a step out of the manufacturing operation, saving time and money while reducing waste and the risk of injury.

Cutting Costs with RustBan®

At a facility in Livonia, Michigan, Ford Motor Company found that RustBan® eliminated the need for a drive shaft sub-bag. It also freed up three workers whose job was to package each shaft in the VCI-treated polyethylene bag, seal the bag with tape, then insert the bag into a corrugated carton.

RustBan® has a wide range of applications:

Corrugated, solid fiber and other forms of paperboard packaging can all be treated with RustBan® at the converting level. Partitions, slip sheets and other specialty paperboard products can be produced with RustBan® applied to both sides.

RustBan® is:

For maximum effectiveness, treated paper should be stretch-wrapped after the application of RustBan®. The package should enclose the packaged article(s) on all six sides. Direct contact with the treated surface is not necessary.
