Yes for the F-Files, back from the days of "the Case Of The Rust Stain Patterns Appear During Transport". However I didn't see a recomendation that the product to be shippid in the future in un-rusted shipping containers. So often we work so hard to get a coating just right and someone down the line is focused on another task, like getting the darn things there, without caring for our coating job being ruined.
