Cortec has introduced two bio-based, biodegradable coatings for temporary corrosion prevention without flammable solvents or petroleum-based materials.
EcoLine 3220 and EcoLine 3690 are designed for extended temporary protection of multi-metals and conform to NACE Standard RP0487-2000 (Considerations in the Selection and Evaluation of Rust Preventatives and Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors for Interim (Temporary) Corrosion Protection).
Both products can be easily removed using a bio-based EcoLine Surface Cleaner/Degreaser, eliminating disposal costs associated with oils, the manufacturer says.
EcoLine 3220 is a canola-oil based addition to Cortec’s biodegradable line of products made with renewable resources. The ready-to use temporary coating is designed to provide a tenacious film that clings to metal surfaces, for contact corrosion protection in storage and shipment.
EcoLine 3220 is also designed to provide long-lasting vapor corrosion inhibition, as well as a balance of corrosion protection and lubrication. The product is intended for indoor or sheltered protection for up to two years.
EcoLine 3690, for open-air corrosion protection, is made from renewable materials and contains canola oil as a carrier. Designed for marine and high-humidity conditions, the coating boasts thermostability and is designed to be self-healing and moisture-displacing, for protection against aggressive environments.
EcoLine 3690 provides multi-metal corrosion protection in indoor and outdoor applications. It can be applied to painted surfaces and meets MIL-PRF-16173E (Grade 2).
St. Paul, MN-based Cortec Corp. supplies environmentally responsible VpCI and MCI corrosion control technologies for packaging, metalworking, construction, electronics, water treatment, oil and gas, and other industries.
