After a period of use, some industrial casters will rust. So what is the cause of the rusting of the casters? How to effectively prevent the casters from rusting?
First of all, what are the factors related to the rusting of the casters? It can be found through practice that moisture and oxygen are the causes of rusting of the casters. The presence of water does not rust the casters. Only when oxygen in the air dissolves in the water, the chemical reaction of oxygen with the casters in a watery environment can oxidize the casters and cause the casters to rust. Caster rust is a brown-red material that is not as hard as a caster and can easily fall off. When a caster is completely rusted, the volume can be increased by 8 times. If the caster rust is not removed, it is particularly easy to absorb moisture, and the caster will rust faster.
Knowing the cause of the rust of the casters, it can effectively prevent the generation of caster rust. In wet locations, casters are more likely to rust than in dry locations because the casters are more prone to contact with water in wet locations. The painted caster products are not easy to rust because the paint acts to block the air and water. Therefore, if you want to reduce the rust of the casters, you should cut off one of the rust conditions. You can paint on the casters to cut off the contact between the casters and the air. You can also use the caster products like a kitchen knife to dry and put them in a dry place after use, cutting off the contact between the casters and the water, thus preventing the casters from being produced. rust.
