Cortec unveils clear water-based removable coating

DUBAI, December 30, 2018

Cortec, a global leader in innovative corrosion protection technology, said it has simplified equipment protection with the launch of its new VpCI-391.

Cortec’s VpCI-391 water-based coating is transforming transit and storage protection options for equipment manufacturers, suppliers, and owners.

This removable coating delivers exceptional corrosion protection for indoor and outdoor applications and dries to a thin, clear film which is virtually unnoticeable. VpCI-391 can be used to protect both unpainted and painted surfaces, as well as to prevent dissimilar metal corrosion, it stated.

According to Cortec, the biggest advantage of VpCI-391 is that, as a water-based coating, it is much easier to use and clean up than solvent-based systems.

It can be easily removed from equipment or structures using alkaline cleaners—however, this is not always necessary because of the coating’s clear non-tacky appearance, stated the company.

These characteristics make VpCI-391 an excellent alternative to applying traditional thick heavy waxy or greasy products like Cosmoline or Tectyl, which are messy to use, difficult to remove, and do not leave a clean appearance, it added.

VpCI-391 is a single component system with no mixing required. It can be applied via spray, brush, roll, or dip. VOCs are less than 0.5 pounds per gallon (48 g/L), said the statement.

The coating goes on white and dries clear, or it can be tinted to a specific color if desired. VpCI-391 does not harm plastic, so overspray on plastic components is not a concern, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
