Corrosion Presents in Different Types of Rust
They are different in how they look and different in the circumstances that led to their formation. At Armor Protective Packaging, we recognize that identifying the type of rust is the first step in identifying a solution to prevent it. We like to compare rust to an iceberg (see Rust Iceberg graphic below) — it’s not what you can see above the surface of the water that is most destructive, but rather it’s what you can’t see that can do the most harm. The same is true of rust and corrosion, often it’s the things that aren’t visible or that are less obvious that result in the greatest damage.
