July 14th 2014- MetalRustGuard- Rust Inhibiting- Environmentally Friendly

From its design MetalRustGuard was set out to be effective against rust and corrosion, but  more importantly, we wanted to attack the problem with the planet in mind.

We take pride that our product is used with only non-toxic, environmentally friendly ingredients. We guarantee up to a 4 year shelf life for indoor storage and up to 2 years with outdoor storage. MetalRustGuard is a strong barrier protectant against corrosive elements and a product that can be applied to metal material with your bare hands, without any fear of chemical reaction or harm done to humans or the area it is used in. Buried underground, or used in metal manufacturing plants across the country, you can be sure that MetalRustGuard saves you money every time and Mother Earth as well.

July 21st 2014- VCI Not Needed

We think VCI (Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors) works. We think they are feasible to mitigate and fight corrosion in your efforts to drive quality in your operation. We just happen to think our stuff works better, and we have the proof! Over 188 hours of Salt Spray testing proves that MetalRustGuard was THE CHOICE to prevent metal rust and corrosion. Even being submerged in phosphoric and hydrochloric acid, MetalRustGuard still stood up to the challenge. So if your company is using any VCI material now, whether it be VCI Poly, VCI bags, VCI emitters or desiccant packets, and you are looking to save up to 35% with a more environmentally friendly appeal, look no further than MetalRustGuard. Proudly manufactured in Los Angeles, California. We take pride in creating a new innovative approach towards rust and corrosion inhibiting. Remember, it’s US or RUST!

August 4th 2014- It Doesn’t Take Much to Rust

The natural occurrence of rust on steel and other metal components, doesn’t take a long time to happen. And this time of year, where most places around the US get extremely humid, it will take even less time. Rust forms after metal is exposed to oxygen and moisture in the air. In just 3 days, most pieces begin to corrode and would have to be re-worked and rust removed before they can be used. So how much is rust costing your company? How much labor are you spending on this natural occurrence that DOES NOT go away by well wishing? Well, we have a solution, and even if you are already using something now, we got a feeling that if you are here on our website, you are looking for another one. That solution is MetalRustGuard, the safe, non-toxic rust eliminator that stops rust in your operation immediately! So get in touch with us today, request a free sample and knock out your rust problem for good. Remember with MetalRustGuard- It’s Us or Rust!

August 24th 2014- It seems easy, but does it really work?

November 3rd 2014- Its not enough for us just to tell you- Try it in your manufacturing plant

We make a lot of claims on our website. We do it because we know the corrosion inhibiting market well. And we also know how well MetalRustGuard works in comparison to those products. Some have been around since the 1920’s and still use the same formula and still pose the same challenges to manufacturers. Whether the challenge be tough to clean off, toxic and materials containing VOC’s, or just out and out ineffective to the conditions you are shipping or storing your metal in. With MetalRustGuard we know this is a new way to inhibit corrosion for aluminum, steel and other machinery equipment, but we encourage you to contact us today for a free sample or pick up a roll here at and see how MetalRustGuard can turn the tide against your battle with  corrosion. Remember with MetalRustGuard- It’s Us or Rust!

November 18th 2014- How many products do you use invented in WW1?

WWI happened almost 100 years ago and while somethings invented then have been innovated now, one thing that was revolutionized during that period has NOT been changed and that is cosmoline. Cosmoline, you know that stuff that your grandfather used on his old hunting rifles that always had a better story behind the damage it did, than the actual truth. But since the 1920’s very little has changed about the manufacturing of cosmoline and with it, the list of cons continue to add up as your company has grown. It has been the stuff you always chose because at the time it was the best rust and corrosion inhibitor. But time has changed since the 1920’s and so has your operation, and with that change comes new products and new ideas and with that in mind comes MetalRustGuard. With all the effectiveness of corrosion prevention of cosmoline or oil inhibitors without the gunky removal of that nasty stuff. MetalRustGuard is the solution for quick application and easy removal all done in a non-toxic packaging material that doesn’t harm the user applying the material or the environment it is placed in. So if you are stuck using inhibitors from the 1920’s, fast forward 100 years and improve efficiency in your manufacturing process today with MetalRustGuard. Remember with MetalRustGuard- It’s Us or Rust!

June 24th 2015- So how does it work

Answer: There are two reasons why MetalRustGuard (MRG) is effective. First, the base material (Non Woven Polypropylene) is hydrophobic in it’s nature. Even without the wax impregnation, water is sheeted and dispersed. What this does is prevent water vapor transmission through the material. The wax and oil impregnation (Food Grade waxes and oils) prevents atmospheric condensation changes on the outside from contaminating the metal on the inside. This means it is also effective in high humidity conditions and marine environment conditions.
