Cortec® Introduces VpCI® Transit Coating, a Replacement for Hazardous Corrosion Preventives

Published on 2013-03-06. Author : SpecialChem

CorShield® VpCI® Transit Coating is an environmentally friendly, water-reducible concentrate designed as a complete replacement for hazardous oil-based corrosion preventives. This economical and excellent performance coating is safe to apply and easy to remove if necessary.

CorShield® VpCI® Transit Coating forms emulsion in water and is applied to metal surfaces by spraying or dipping. The wide dilution range with water allows flexibility to customize the length of protection required vs. applied cost. Unique vapor phase action protects uncoated and difficult-to-reach areas.

The protective coating is also translucent and in ambient conditions becomes dry-to-touch 30 minutes from application. It forms clear and dry film, which renders attractive appearance to protected parts.

CorShield® VpCI Transit Coating can be easily removed with VpCI®-414 or other conventional alkaline cleaners.

The product is designed to protect ferrous and non-ferrous metals in sheltered areas, indoors or in packaging, with no direct exposure to rain or outdoor elements. It is also excellent temporary coating for painted surfaces.

CorShield® VpCI™ Transit Coating is heat stable, displaces water from metal surfaces, eliminates cleaning and housekeeping problems associated with oil and provides superior protection and complete replacement for rust-inhibiting oils.

Due to its economical application the product can be diluted up to 1 part CorShield® VpCI™ Transit Coating to 10 parts water. It contains zero VOCs.

Metals protected are carbon and stainless steel, cast iron, aluminum, copper and alloys.
