Peterson Manufacturing Co. will be selling ECK products to help prevent corrosion to its safety lighting line. ECK (Electrolysis Corrosion Kontrol) was developed by Van Nay in 1998. Its formulation has proven to be effective at blocking corrosion of all dissimilar metals, including stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass, cold-rolled steel and black oxide, Peterson said.
It is safe to use with both rubber and plastic, will not harm paint, and withstands temperatures up to 1000 deg. F.
“Harsh road conditions, including chemicals, moisture and temperature changes, are always an issue, no matter the manufacturer,” said Kristen Goodson, director of product management for Peterson. “By offering ECK as a value-added product for the safety lighting needs of our customers, we’re helping ensure that their trucks and trailers keep on rolling instead of sitting idle due to corrosion issues.”
Peterson will sell ECK in tubes of brushable liquid, which it said applies easily to electrical connections and different metals.
