Extra protection added to corro-
Cortec has added
(VpCI®) to its VpCI-
368 coating. The
dark brown viscous
liquid dries into a firm, moisture-displac-ing, waxlike film that can be removed by
mineral spirits or alkaline cleaners.
The VpCI-368 EVP film can be used
for a variety of applications that require
heavy-duty corrosion protection, such as
pipe coating, parts storage, underbody
coating, wire rope, steel plate, and machined parts.
The product also is available for application in complex, sealed spaces where
a greater concentration of corrosion inhibitor is beneficial. The extra dose of
inhibitor vaporizes from the coating, fills
the enclosed space, and adsorbs on dif-ficult-to-reach surfaces. The coating provides multimetal protection on stainless
steel, copper, aluminum, and cast iron.
