Cortec Corp. has rolled out VpCI-380, a fluoropolymer-modified, water-based acrylic for the railway industry.

The company touts the railcar coating as “weatherproofing for the long haul.”

VpCI-380 is made with nontoxic organic inhibitors, replacing “most primer and topcoat systems with corrosion protection in just one coat,” says St. Paul, MN-based Cortec. 

Cortec VpCl is designed for railcars

Applied by spray, flow coat, brush or dip, VpCI-380 railcar coating can be used alone or in with Cortec VpCI-395 primer.
 
Applications and Features

The coating is suitable for a wide variety of substrates, including ferrous and nonferrous metals and many engineered plastics.

Cortec says the product’s hardness and moisture resistance “make it an ideal air-dry/force-dry industrial coating.”

The product provides a non-flammable, UV-resistant barrier from the elements with a fast-drying/high gloss finish, according to the manufacturer. The coating is designed to deliver excellent outdoor performance, resisting chipping or cracking in prolonged exposure to sunlight, Cortec says.

Cortec Corp. provides corrosion-control technologies in more than 400 products for construction, water treatment, oil and gas, and other industries.
