Cortec Corp. has introduced VpCI-395, a waterborne epoxy primer designed to provide salt spray, immersion, and long-term corrosion protection to steel.
Non-hazardous and non-flammable, the primer is formulated to minimize long-term embrittlement; dry to the touch in 20-30 minutes; and resist corrosion.
The water-based formulation helps comply with environmental regulations governing solvents and VOC limits and allows for soap-and-water cleanup, according to the manufacturer.
Applications and Features
The micro-corrosion-inhibiting primer is designed to replace zinc-rich primers and provide long-term protection in corrosive atmospheres, including HCl, H2S, SO2, and CO2 vapor environments.
Typical applications include structural steel, OEM primer, equipment overhauls, immersed equipment, and holding tanks. The primer is suitable for carbon and stainless steel, cast iron, galvanized steel, and aluminum.
