About Northern Technologies International Corp.
Northern Technologies International Corporation develops and markets proprietary environmentally beneficial products and services primarily in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
The company primarily develops, manufactures, and markets ZERUST rust and corrosion inhibiting packaging products and services to the automotive, electronics, electrical, mechanical, military, and retail consumer markets. It also offers worldwide on-site technical consulting for rust and corrosion prevention issues.
The company's ZERUST packaging products contain proprietary nontoxic chemical systems (primarily using food additives) that passivate metal surfaces and thereby inhibit rust and corrosion. The corrosion-inhibiting protection is maintained as long as the metal products to be protected remain enclosed within the ZERUST packaging. Electron scanning further shows that once the contents are removed from the ZERUST package, the ZERUST protection dissipates from the contents surfaces within two hours, leaving a clean, dry and corrosion-free metal component. This mechanism of corrosion protection enables NTICs customers to package metal objects for rust-free shipment or long-term storage.
The company, by combining ZERUST chemical systems with polyethylene and polypropylene resins, introduces a line of packaging products in the form of low and high density polyethylene bags and shroud film, stretch, shrink, skin and bubble cushioning film, woven scrim, foam sheeting, profile and corrugated board, thermoformed dunnage trays and bins, injection and blow molded products, and flat netting.
The company's corrosion prevention products also include a line of diffusers, such as ZERUST ICT Vapor Capsules, ZERUST ICT Plastabs, and ZERUST ICT Cor-Tabs, which protect metal surfaces within the distance of a certain specified radius of protection. This product line also includes items, such as ZERUST gun cases and car covers, which are targeted at retail consumers.
The company has developed additives in liquid form to imbue corrugated cardboard, solid fiber and chipboard packaging materials with corrosion protection properties. Additionally, it provides a line of metal surface treatment liquids, which are oil, water, and bio-solvent based, marketed under the Axxatec, Axxanol, and Z-Maxx brand names. The company also sells rust removal products designed to recover rusty parts by replacing labor-intensive, abrasive cleaners that damage surfaces, and fail to remove rust from small gear teeth and other difficult to reach areas under the ICT and Axxaclean brand names.
As an on-going effort to help its customers improve and control their processes in terms of corrosion management, the company markets and offers corrosion management and consulting services to target customers. It offers ZERUST corrosion inhibitor system (known as Z-CIS).
Corrosion Prevention for the Oil and Gas Industry
The company has developed proprietary corrosion inhibiting technologies for use in the mitigation of corrosion in capital assets used in the petroleum and chemical process industries and is initially targeting the sale of these new ZERUST products to the oil and gas industry sector.
The company's corrosion prevention products for the oil and gas industry include ZERUST Flange Savers, ZERUST ReCAST-R VCI Dispensers, and ZERUST ICT Vapor Capsules in addition to the traditional ZERUST packaging application products.
ZERUST Flange Savers are specially designed covers that have been impregnated with a proprietary ZERUST inhibitor formulation that provide corrosion protection for flanges, valves, and welded joints. Oil and gas pipeline segments are connected by flanges and welded joints of varying sizes, designs, and materials. ZERUST Flange Savers are available in various sizes to accommodate different pipe diameters, pressure ratings, and international standards for pipeline valves and flanges.
ZERUST ReCAST-R VCI Dispensers protect the interior surfaces of aboveground storage tank roofs by delivering proprietary inhibitor formulations into the vapor space between the surface of the pr

Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
