Cortec® offers EcoLine® 3690, a USDA Certified Biobased Product can be used to replace solvent- and mineral-oil based (RPs).

Canola-oil-based Temporary Coating

EcoLine® 3690 is a ready to use canola-oil-based temporary coating designed for corrosion protection in severe marine and high humidity conditions.

It contains 72 percent USDA certified biobased content and leaves behind an oily protective film that does not dry. It is an excellent solution for contractors who manufacture parts or equipment for the federal government and need to prevent rust in interim periods of storage or shipment.

It is also good for any manufacturer around the world who wants to go to the next level of sustainability while reducing VOCs and minimizing worker exposure to mineral-oil or solvent-based RPs. EcoLine® 3690 can be easily removed with an alkaline cleaner and can help users avoid hazardous waste disposal costs associated with traditional rust preventatives.

Meet Biobased Requirements

U.S. federal agencies and their contractors have to meet biobased requirements when purchasing products from 139 categories identified by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). One of these is corrosion preventatives, which must have 53 percent minimum biobased content to be a qualified product under the mandatory federal purchasing initiative of the USDA BioPreferred® Program.

For best results, EcoLine® 3690 should be applied to clean metal surfaces by spray, roll, brush, or dip at a recommended WFT (wet film thickness) of 1.0-3.0 mils (25-75 μm). It can also be applied over painted surfaces. EcoLine® 3690 has no VOCs and is temperature stable up to 180 °F (82 °C). It protects multiple metal types:
  • Carbon Steel
  • Silver
  • Cast Iron
  • Stainless Steel
  • Copper
  • Magnesium
  • Aluminum
