“NANTAN” is synonymous with rust, corrosion and a deteriorating meteorite. It has earned a very bad reputation as an “instant ruster” with little hope for a cure. No serious collector wants to own a constantly deteriorating specimen.
The list of other rusting irons is well known. Now there is a solution to this age old problem. A new technology prevents ionic vapor phase corrosion by providing a monomolecular protective film layer bonded to the meteorite surface. When you stop vapor moisture transmission to a substrate, you stop its ability to corrode.
From the PaleoBOND research laboratory comes a technology developed with rusting meteorites in mind. Working in cooperation with Cortec Corporation, which developed anti-corrosion systems for the military, we are able to stop cold the corrosion of the iron meteorites in your collection.
The specially developed “Meteorite Getting Started Kit” will permit you to de-rust an iron meteorite in your own shop. Then coat it to prevent corrosion. If you should chose not to coat your specimen, we have emitters that will stop rust in your display cases.
