BioPouch..powered by the newest Nano-VpCI technology

Cortec unveils latest corrosion protection technology

DUBAI, October 1, 2014

Cortec Corporation, a leader in innovative, green, sustainable technologies, has presented the latest advancement in environmentally safe corrosion protection - BioPouch.

The new ‘green’ Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI) is aimed at protection of metal parts in a non-ventilating space, said a statement.

BioPouch is powered by the newest Nano-VpCI technology, primarily made from agricultural by-products, it said.

Nano-VpCI's emit from the pouch and saturate the enclosure via diffusion, filling all void spaces and recessed areas with protective vapour molecules. These molecules are attracted to and adsorb onto metallic surfaces, resulting in the formation of a nano protective barrier layer.

The VpCI molecules can provide protection in the presence of corrosive species, (that is, chlorides, moisture, sulfides) and displace them at the metal surface, according to studies.

Vapour phase inhibiting action protects inaccessible and recessed surfaces. BioPouch is non-toxic, free of nitrites, halogens and phosphates as well as completely safe to handle, it said.

It will provide an en efficient and easy method to protect metals within an enclosed space. In case a nano protective layer is disturbed by moisture or opening of an enclosed space, the layer is replenished by continuous vapour re-deposition.

The Nano-VpCI is made from enhanced renewable agricultural by-products and does not destroy the natural balance of the environment while being functionally superior to hazardous oil derived products. It is very effective in polluted and humid environments.

It can be used in tubular structures, pipes, and vessels; internal surfaces of compressors, turbines, engines, tanks, boilers, heat exchangers; steam condensate lines, closed circuit heating, and cooling systems; corrosion protection of equipment after hydrostatic testing; parts, components, and completed assemblies during shipping and storage; voids, cavities, and tanks; double bottom storage tank floors. - TradeArabia News Service
