Corrosion Protection and Storage.

To maintain finishes and protect against oxidisation and corrosion the application of a post-cleaning protectant is advisable. This is particularly important when equipment is to be stored for the medium or longer term. 

Durafilm – Short-term protection for equipment stored undercover.
Protecta – Medium to long-term protection for equipment stored undercover.
Metal Protective Coating – Long-term protection for equipment stored outside or under limited cover.


Customer Experience – Duxton Vineyards Like many vineyards and other agricultural enterprises, Duxton Vineyards uses Chemron Farm Mate as a vital part of their plant and equipment maintenance programme.

Richard Lambe from Duxton Vineyard recently sent us some before and after pictures and a brief explanation.

The sprayer had been used frequently over a three month period. In between sprays, it was hosed off, but not pressure washed. The photographs below show the sprayer after this three month period, and prior to its thorough cleaning with Farm Mate.

The sprayer was hosed off to remove loose contamination and then Farm Mate was applied at the recommended one part Farm Mate to ten parts water. It was allowed a short dwell time, but not allowed to dry. A pressure washer was then used to complete the job. The photographs below show the immediate result of the clean, and also a day later when the sprayer was completely dry.
