Thread: New sealed Copper Olight corrosion

    Default New sealed Copper Olight corrosion

    Hello. I bought sealed Olight R50 raw copper SN 1023 2016. I'm very disappoint of the condition. Please don't use anymore this plastic for sealing. There are greenish corroded places on the body. It's not for gift or collectible condition. All your sealed products (even this year made) smini, S1r start corrosion immediatly in this plastic.
    I used contact form on your website, sent emails to contact@olightstore.com contact@olightworld.com and have no answer.

    My r50 copper also came a little corrosion but not as bad as can be seen on your pic tho.. so i just think the plastic bag isnt 100% airtight for some reason.. But if u were to give someone that knows this they would think u gave them a used product. I agree it shouldnt look like that, even if u dont wanna open it for a very long time it should stay almost in perfect condition after sealed in fabric until u open it.

    Also where did u buy the r50, i thought they were long gone ? i got my in december last year from amazon.

    Isn't this normal for raw copper? It would be very difficult to keep it away from everything corrosive (the air) for two years.

    Let me guess. Silica gel was omitted from the package, eh?

    Well yes but the whole point is to keep it sealed until the customer opens it otherwise i dont see the point in trying protect when it clearly doesnt.

    Yea, I might be wrong but I don't think that's what this plastic baggy is for. I'd say it's just more for tiny scratches and stuff. It would need corrosion inhibitor and vacuum sealed if you wanted factory finish after storage for a long time.

    Well that is if he decides to open it, if not then its a bit harder to do something if u wanna keep it as it is..

    Itís already corroded so thereís really no reason not to open it. The seal is compromised

    My TOOL cu came in a foil bag, now no way of knowing how long it was in there for. But seemed to do the trick and looked all perfect(patina free anyway).

    Ketchup is another option to clean off the patina.

    Copper is quite reactive, and unless vacuum packed in foil it will oxidize. If you don't like that, choose a different metal.

    Exactly. I love patina, never thought of it as a problem!
