Seminar: temporary corrosion protection in packaging technology

Start 9 Academy 9 Corrosion protection in packaging technology

Corrosion is caused by climatic stresses, or more precisely the interaction of water and oxygen moisture. Commonly known as rust, the process gradually breaks down metallic surfaces and thus impairs the functionality of technical equipment or components. Rust damage to metals or in containers repeatedly causes problems in the storage and transport of packages and consumer goods. Decomposition causes immediate material damage to the transport boxes, which can penetrate through to the primary packaging. If the function of a unit is impaired as a result, this is an enormous loss of image for the carrier or even the manufacturer.

How can corrosion be prevented or minimized during the transport of goods? The BFSV training course provides information on the weather-related development of corrosion. It shows how temperature fluctuations, air, rain and salt water can cause damage in closed containers and provides information about the state of research in corrosion protection.

Employees in packaging companies and freight forwarders learn about effective corrosion protection methods and how to apply them safely.

Learning Objective:

Avoid Temporary Corrosion

In this seminar, you will learn about the various corrosion fundamentals. You will learn how to apply the common corrosion protection methods. You will know the advantages and disadvantages of the methods so that you can protect technical goods from corrosion on a case-by-case basis.

If you are educating yourself on corrosion protection for packaging, then you will know at the end of the seminar:

  • which climatic stresses occur during transport and storage
  • which corrosion protection methods are suitable for shipping
  • when which desiccants you can use and what quantities you need
Icon für Teilnehmerkreis
Group of participants
Our Corrosion Protection Seminar is designed for employees in packaging manufacturing and logistics operations. We address packaging planners, but also packaging operating units that prepare goods for container shipment.
In the field of logistics we would like to address especially companies packing containers for roads, rails and shipping. If the steel container serves as a warehouse for goods for a longer period of time, surfaces should also be specially cleaned here and VCI desiccants should be used.
