See how SuperCORR A can save money and time changing light bulbs

Question – How many engineers does it take to change a lightbulb?

Answer – One,
but they’ll spend three hours checking it for alignment and leaks.

There are thousands of jokes on this theme but anywhere, factories, offices, warehouses, supermarkets, sports stadiums, railway stations, ocean liners, road lighting and other applications where thousands of light fittings are installed it can be a major maintenance expense rather than a joke.

SuperCORR A is a corrosion preventative dry lubricant aerosol which rejects water and protects the bulb socket and fitting and prevents sticking. This makes bulb changing easy and quick.

SuperCorr A defeats increasing gold prices for connector manufacture

Thinner plating caused problems with increased corrosion on USB connectors as gold coating thickness decreased with escalating gold prices.

A major company in the U.S. found that by using SuperCORR A it was able to prevent galling corrosion due to vibration on printed circuit leads and connectors.

They found that because of the advances in gold plating technology the plating thickness was being reduced over the base substrate metal of the connectors. The thickness of the gold plating became thinner and thinner over time. This thinner coating saved a lot of money as gold was and is becoming increasingly expensive. However the resulting reduced thickness of gold plating also resulted in failures caused by corrosion. Minute irregularities in the surface of the connectors base metal caused irregular or uneven wear of the connector causing the “high spots” on the connector to wear through the gold plating.

Using SuperCORR A prevented or delayed the corrosion and subsequent failures. However it must be recognized that
SuperCORR A is a lubricant with corrosion preventive compounds, and as is the case with all “lubricants” they will be worn off over time. Having said that, the Company also had SuperCORR A tested to see what the “life” of the lubricant was in a “rub test”. The typical test is 20,000 cycles, i.e. unplug, plug in is one cycle. The test results demonstrated that after 20,000 cycles there were no failures. It was decided to take it one more step and run the same tests for 200,000 cycles. The results again showed no indications of galling or scoring on the USB connectors at all. In fact they commented that the USB connector looked as good as new.

Corrosion Control

Corrosion is a serious problem for industry and governments worldwide.  Most people associate corrosion with rust, which only happens in things made of ferrous metals such as steel girders, ships, iron pipes, steel reinforcement rods, and steel tanks and is the reason metals deteriorate and fail.

Ferrous and non-ferrous metals corrode on contact with both fresh and salt water as well as water vapor. They will also corrode when they come in contact with chemicals, liquid acids as well as acidic vapors, salts and bases, and bacteria.

Read our article “Corrosion Control Solutions – A Solution To A Costly Problem” for more information about the enormity of the costs involved in failing to prevent corrosion.
