Cortec Unveils EcoLine® 3680, a Bio-Based Coating to Protect Metal from Corrosion

Published on 2013-10-17. Author : SpecialChem

Cortec® Corporation, one of the leaders in innovative, green, sustainable technologies has spent many years of dedicated experimentation to develop eco-efficient, biodegradable products made from sustainable materials that have positive effects on the environment and are safe to work with. Latest such innovation is EcoLine® 3680, a certified biobased, biodegradable, ready-to-use temporary coating for multimetal protection.

EcoLine® 3680 is formulated with USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) renewable raw materials; which allows use for corrosion protection of equipment where incidental contact with food is possible. The product is HX-1 approval pending.

This green inhibitor provides premium indoor and outdoor multimetal protection. When applied on the surface, it leaves a tenacious, dry-to-touch protective coating, which provides excellent protection on metal surfaces. The film is self-healing and moisture-displacing, providing superior protection even against aggressive environments. This wax-like film can be removed with alkaline cleaners such as Cortec® VpCI®-414. EcoLine® 3680 is safe, economical and easy to use.

Metals protected with EcoLine® 3680: carbon, galvanized and stainless steels, copper, brass, bronze, aluminum and cast iron. The product can be easily applied by brushing or spraying.


  • Pipe coating
  • Parts storage
  • Wire rope
  • Steel plate

Ecoline® 3680 conforms to NACE Standard RP0487-2000 and has been tested by certified laboratory in accordance with ASTM B-117 (Salt Spray Test) and ASTM D-1748 (Humidity Test) with excellent results. The product is RoHS and REACH compliant.
