Eco-friendly corrosion inhibitor launched
Washington, June 4, 2012
US-based Cortec Corporation has launched a non-toxic, bio-based, biodegradable, concentrated formulation that protects ferrous and non-ferrous metals from corrosive solutions containing chlorides.
VpCI-645 is designed to provide the most effective three phase corrosion protection in fresh water, salt water, brine, and other highly corrosive solutions containing dissolved halogens, a statement said.
It provides long term effectiveness in a low dosage. It is used as a treatment for a wide variety of marine and process applications to stop aggressive corrosion.
This water-based, nitrite and amine free corrosion inhibitor is a replacement for hazardous nitrite and chromate-based formulations.
Being environmentally safe to use, VpCI-645 helps solve the problem of disposal, particularly for large quantities of water. It has the most favorable CO2 footprint and is readily water-soluble which makes application easy.
Typical applications include closed circuit cooling and heating systems containing brines or water, desalination plants, packer fluid applications, wet lay-up of boilers, pipelines, vessels and pulp and paper process equipment.
It prevents water-bottom corrosion in oil storage tanks and ballast tanks of ship and offshore platforms. VpCI-645 conforms to NACE RP-0487-2000 standard and is ROHS compliant. – TradeArabia News Service
