Slide Products, Wheeling, Ill., is making available the first rust preventive to achieve the NSF H-1 designation, which means it can be used in molding operations requiring food-approved active ingredients. Called White Rhino, the product contains no trichloroethylene and offers up to two years of protection under normal operating conditions. A dry formulation that reportedly neutralizes fingerprint acids and is self-cleaning and self-healing, the rust preventative sets up quickly to offer immediate protection against moisture and light acids. Self-cleaning at startup, it helps maximize productivity. And it will satisfy American Institute of Baking (AIB) audit requirements.
