General Kincrome tools are manufactured to quality standards and specifications.
All Kincrome tools undergo a comprehensive corrosion protection process to preserve and prolong the life of your investment, however, without the correct maintenance they are not imperishable.
Tools, like anything, require maintenance. They need to be regularly wiped clean, especially of corrosives such as petrol, solvents, antifreeze, brake fluids and water.
Keeping your tools in a closed tool box will also help protect them from external elements, for example, dust covered tools will rust quicker when the humidity is high or there is moisture in the air as the dust will hold the moisture and potentially have a corrosive effect on metals.
Damaging the corrosion protection on your tools by dropping them, scratching or denting the chrome plating may expose the bare metal and likely accelerate corrosion.
Light surface rust on tools that are used infrequently is not uncommon as the natural oils on your skin and oil’s within the workshop actually help protect the tools.
Light rust should be cleaned from your tools immediately with a clean cloth and a water displacement product such as WD40®.
Kincrome recommends that you wipe your tools clean of all foreign materials after use.
