Peterson adds ECK to fight corrosion

Peterson Manufacturing Company has augmented its vehicle safety lighting line by adding ECK corrosion prevention products from Van Nay LLC.

ECK (Electrolysis Corrosion Kontrol) is a dielectric coating patented by Van Nay in 1998. Its formulation has proven effective in preventing dissimilar metal corrosion of all metals, including stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass, cold-rolled steel, and black oxide.

Field-tested for more than 12 years, ECK not only protects all metals and electrical connections, but it also prevents all types of corrosion: electrolysis, galvanic, magnesium, and calcium chloride. It is safe to use with both rubber and plastic, will not harm paint, and withstands temperatures up to 1,000° F. Peterson will be selling ECK in the United States only.

Peterson will offer ECK in tubes of brushable liquid that applies easily to electrical connections and different metals being assembled. The ECK formulation incorporates zinc powders to create a lasting barrier against the corrosion that always occurs between dissimilar metals such as aluminum and steel.
