Master Arm Corroding Away, Please Help
Posted 12 June 2009 - 10:33 AM
Was hoping to tap into this pool for help on my corroding arm.
The springs are still fine but the 2 parts that are giving in to the humid south east asian climate are:
1. all the circles with the 2 screws at the joints
2. the area where the Steadicam logos are on the Master series arm
I tried applying an oil coat but it wipes off very quickly when sweat gets on it and the corrosion is getting from bad to worst.
How do you guys maintain it in humid climates?
Please help. Am a newbie

While anodizing does provide some basic anti-corrosion protection, local environmental conditions will dictate what keeps the gear working and looking good.
Even human sweat is enough to eat away at the arm components where there is body contact.
CorrosionX can be found at sources such as with aeronautical and marine suppliers.
