Cortec’s EcoClean solution receives USDA certification

DUBAI, August 6, 2017

Cortec, a world leader in innovative corrosion protection technology, revealed that its EcoClean Biodegradable Scale and Rust Remover is now a USDA Certified biobased product.

As such, it is third party certified to contain 100 per cent USDA certified biobased content. It also exceeds minimum USDA certified bio-based content requirements for metal cleaners and corrosion removers qualified for federal purchasing under the USDA BioPreferred Programme, said a statement.

EcoClean Biodegradable Scale Remover is effective and easy to use. It is the fastest acting product on the market for dissolving heavy scale, corrosion, and naturally occurring oxides off metals, the company said.

This is important for improving flow in scale-obstructed water or drainage pipes and improving heat-transfer efficiency on heat-exchanger equipment by creating clean surfaces.

Powerful corrosion inhibitors contained in the scale remover also protect treated metals from flash rust.

Created in 2002 and reauthorised and expanded in 2014, the USDA BioPreferred Programme encourages the purchase and use of bio-based products made from renewable resources.

The USDA BioPreferred Programme has identified 97 categories of products required to have a minimum bio-based content when purchased by federal agencies and contractors.

The programme also carries a voluntary labelling initiative that helps consumers identify biobased products more easily through the use of the USDA Certified Biobased Product label, which requires third-party verification of the product’s biobased content.

Certified Biobased Product label, which requires third-party verification of the product’s biobased content.

EcoClean Biodegradable Scale Remover can be easily applied in a water-soluble pouch form that will dissolve and release the non-toxic scale remover upon entry into the water. This is particularly convenient for circulating systems, as in many heat-exchanger or pipe systems, since the product can be circulated to clean hard-to-reach areas without costly equipment dismantling.

EcoClean also saves on labour by reducing the cost of surface preparation. The product is easily biodegradable and safe and easy to dispose.

By using renewable resources to make a 100 per cent biobased product, Cortec has created a simple, effective, and environmentally friendly way to preserve the quality of water systems and help them run at greater efficiency, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
