Wax or Water Temporary Surface Protection?

The temporary protection of components, in particular, metal parts during transportation and storage is essential if you wish to avoid damage due to corrosion. Any subsequent rust removal is unlikely to restore the surface to its original quality and then there is also the environmental impact to consider. Nikki Barnard, Marketing Manager at Spraylat International Ltd compares protection using wax-based systems and temporary peelable coatings.

The initial cost of Peelable Coatings will be higher than wax however, this cost will be offset in a reduction in the application, removal, and disposal costs.
