New Product Announcement:Wet-Film Corrosion Inhibitor
Corrosion-prevention company Cortec Corporation has recently announced its development of a new oil-based temporary coating that is meant to provide extreme corrosion protection in aggressive environments.
Described as a wet-film corrosion inhibitor and lubricant, VpCI-369 is designed for applications on auto service parts and heavy equipment components prior to assembly.
Specifically, the company says that the coating would be best utilized on bare, unpainted metal equipment parts that suppliers will have to then ship. Additionally, the coating can also be used on service parts or spares that will be laid aside for five or 10 years before they might be needed again (e.g., marine engine crankshafts).
Additional industrial components that could benefit from the coating’s inability to dry (when using as a dual lubricant and rust preventative for moving parts) include:
Cortec notes that the lubricant is thixotropic and can be mixed so that the product can change consistency to enhance sprayability for application with an airless sprayer. Once sprayed, the solution will reportedly thicken, as to not run off the metal surface.
