Product Highlight: Corrosion Grenade

There are many perks to living near the coast: ocean winds, access to the beach, and a variety of water sports. What’s not a perk is corrosion that occurs when moisture attacks the aluminum fins on air conditioning units, causing them to become inefficient and costly to repair and replace.   This kind of corrosion is known as electrolysis or Galvanic Corrosion, where the weakest metal is damaged by a combination of electricity and the salt air. Since aluminum is the weakest metal in  most air conditioning systems, it is the first to be attacked by corrosion. It seems like an impossible problem to deal with if you live on the coast, but ADL Supply carries a product that can help you avoid such corrosion and keep your air conditioning system in tip-top shape for years to come: the Corrosion Grenade.

The Corrosion Grenade is made of 100% zinc and acts as a sacrificial anode to protect the other metals in the air conditioning system. What this means is that because zinc is the weakest metal in the air conditioning unit (which are mostly composed of aluminum, copper, and steel), it will bear the corrosion that the air conditioning unit would accumulate in its aluminum parts. With its simple screw-on application, the Corrosion Grenade will provide consumers and contractors alike with an easy solution to their corrosion problems.
