Rust Preventatives

Rust occurs on steel parts as a result of a simple chemical reaction where positive ions from the steel workpiece dissolve in the water and react with oxygen molecules to form iron oxide on the surface of the workpiece. This can lead to a number of problems, including reduced accuracy, increased wear and tear, and decreased lifespan of the machine. Chemical rust inhibitors can help prevent rust formation by creating a barrier between the metal and the water. They are especially useful in wire EDM machines, which use water as a dielectric fluid.
