Cortec® Corporation's VpCI® -386 UV Resistant Organic Coating to Eliminate Corrosion Costs

Published on 2009-02-25. Author : SpecialChem

In the spotlight is VpCI®-386, a unique, organic, UV resistant, waterbased acrylic coating. It provides superior corrosion protection for equipment, structures, and maintenance needs and has been formulated for use in virtually any environmental condition. VpCI®-386 is appropriate for direct metal applications and can be used as a single coat system or in conjunction with other primers and topcoats. This remarkable coating can significantly reduce and even eliminate the costs associated with corrosion.

VpCI®-386 forms a fast-drying, thixotropic coating that is resistant to sagging or running, forming a tough, non-flammable protective barrier against corrosive elements. Its UV resistance and thermal stability gives outstanding outdoor corrosion protection without cracking or chipping with prolonged exposure to sunlight. VpCI®- 386 can provide long-term protection for carbon steel, aluminum, stainless steel, galvanized steel, and copper.

VpCI®-386 is a non-toxic, environmentally friendly, low VOC coating system, based on organic corrosion inhibitors. Cortec's proprietary organic Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors provide superior corrosion protection when tested against pigments and metal oxide based coatings. Applied, VpCI®-386 forms a protective film that is absorbed onto the metal surface, thus preventing corrosion.
