What is Rust? And How Does It Affect me?
How does rust effect you? Rust effects everyone. In the simplest terms, rust is the degradation of metal. When water and air meet iron or steel, the reaction is called oxidation. While rust is a natural process, it has a detrimental effect on equipment and infrastructure. Rust can occur in days, weeks, months, or even years, but if not prevented it can cost a lot of money to repair. Globally rust and corrosion costs $2.5 trillion annually and that number is on the rise. We created a product called Rust Patrol that prevents that rust from happening in the first place and protects it from occurring for longer.
