A new Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI) pouch from Cortec Corp. is designed to protect metal parts in non-ventilating spaces.

BioPouch uses Cortec's new NANO-VpCI technology, primarily made from agricultural byproducts.

According to the company, the pouch emits NANO-VpCIs that saturate the enclosure via diffusion, filling void spaces and recessed areas with protective vapor molecules.

Cortec says its new BioPouch uses NANO-VpCIs to saturate enclosed spaces, filling voids and recessed areas with protective vapor molecules.

"These molecules are attracted to and adsorb onto metallic surfaces, resulting in the formation of a nano protective barrier layer," the company explains.

Continuous Replenishing

If the nano protective layer is disturbed by moisture or opening of an enclosed space, the layer is replenished by continuous vapor re-deposition, Cortec says.

Typical uses include pipes, vessels, tank internals, shipping and storage, and corrosion protection of equipment after hydrostatic testing.

The product is non-toxic, safe to handle, and free of nitrites, halogens and phosphates, the company says.

No special equipment is needed for application, and no spraying, wiping or dipping is required. Each pouch covers up to one cubic meter of enclosed space, according to the company.
