In brief -- CORROSION is a scientific process, plaguing industries and destroying items of value. As a result, it causes headaches, stress and financial losses. To that end, erosion protection and other preventive measures are obviously a necesity in order to minimize such deterioration.


CORROSION is the enemy! Accordingly, we're going to explain the science behind corrosion!



I’m going to break down corrosion and various methods of erosion protection with a traditional analogy:

A Bully, his Victim and an Interloper.

(NOTE: By no means do we mean to make light of bullying or its devastating effects. Further, if you or someone you know is being bullied, visit

The Corresponding Roles

Intercept Technology™ -- Erosion Protection Which Contains No Oils, No Volatiles (VOCs), No Contaminants, and Does Not Outgas



Put simply, the most common causes of corrosion are:

  • Corrosive Gases (Sulfuric Gases)
  • Moisture

You can picture these elements as the bully in this analogy, picking on his victim (ferrous and non-ferrous metals).





Intercept Technology™ -- Good for the Environment: Recyclable and Uses No Oils, Greases, or Volatiles



The metals that degrade by way of corrosion are the bully’s victims:

  • Ferrous Metals
  • Non-Ferrous Metals

The bully’s effects on the victim are drastic. It doesn't matter if the influence of corrosion is immediate or drawn out over time.





Intercept Technology™ -- Prevents Mold and Mildew Naturally    

All things considered, the form of erosion protection used to protect metals can be thought of as the interloper:

  • Galvanization
  • Conversion Coatings
  • Volatile Corrosion Protection
  • Intercept Technology

These are the third parties who stand between the bully and his victim in an attempt to stop the caustic process.





Conversion Coatings

Intercept Technology™ -- Copper Infused Reactive Barrier Packaging

Conversion coatings are chemical and electro-chemical process in which a metal’s surface is converted into a derivative that’s more suited for corrosion inhibition.

In this analogy, a conversion coating is an interloper who attempts to train the victim how to defend himself. He gives him defense tactics, informing him of what to do when faced with the bully.

Intercept Technology™ -- Preservation, Anti Tarnish, and Corrosion Prevention

First, conversion coatings DO NOT WORK ON NON-FERROUS METALS. That’s an entire class of metals that conversion coatings cannot defend.

Second, conversion coatings wear away quickly when faced with friction.

This means that over the course of time, the conversion coating’s attempts at teaching the victim how to defend himself will be in vain. The persisting bully will overcome the victim’s new defense strategies and continue to affect him.



Volatile Corrosion Protection

Intercept Technology™ -- Packaging Innovation: Reactive Barrier Erosion Protection Against ESD, Tarnish, Rust, Corrosion, and Degradation

Volatile Corrosion Protection incorporates any compound-releasing storage materials that attempt to stop the corrosion and oxidation of ferrous & non-ferrous metals.

Emitting a vapor when stored in packaging, they coat the metal inside and form a barrier. Thusly, while VCP’s claim to protect metals from corrosion, in reality they compromise metals’ integrity.

In theory, the VCP interloper initially defends the victim, following him everywhere he goes. Anytime the bully strikes, the VCP interloper is there to defend him.

However, over the course of time, the interloper begins to “smother” our victim. Also, his ongoing presence becomes just as much as a negative effect on the victim as the bully’s torments!

Intercept Technology™ -- Reactive Barrier Permanently Guards Against Static Discharge (ESD)

This is because VCP’s contain volatiles. The compounds released by VCP’s are oily, ineffective at preventing corrosion and their ingredients are mostly unknown.

As a matter of fact, other countries have banned the use of VCP’s due to the volatile chemicals they contain.

In effect, our VCP interloper eventually turns around and starts picking on the victim along with the bully himself!

The VCP and the bully spread their influence from our one defenseless victim to the ENTIRE PLAYGROUND of students, subjugating them to caustic and unhealthy behavior.


Intercept Technology

Intercept Technology™ -- Shields Against Rust, Tarnish, and Corrosion Protection

In conclusion, Intercept Technology surrounds metals with a blend of copper and plastic in order to protect them from corrosion.

Intercept Technology™ -- Secures Against Static Discharge (ESD), Tarnish, Rust, Corrosion, Degradation, Mold, And Mildew Via Carbon Neutral Reactive Barrier Packaging

Basically, copper is naturally un-reactive, meaning it doesn’t undergo drastic chemical or structural changes when in contact with other elements.

Inasmuch, by making alterations to its atomic structure, the copper used in Intercept Technology becomes more reactive and increased reactivity results in comprehensive neutralization.

Intercept Technology acts as a sacrificial anode by taking on corrosives. The essential difference between Intercept Technology and the other forms of erosion protection listed in this article is that Intercept neutralizes corrosives.

In our analogy, Intercept packaging is an interloper that solves the victim’s bully problem. Standing in place of the victim, it takes on the bully’s caustic behavior, counteracting and neutralizing it.
