PROTECT AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRIES

The automotive industry has presented difficult challenges to researchers fighting the effects of corrosion — in terms of both economic loss and environmental safety. Cortec’s capability offers highly efficient and economical corrosion protection for automotive applications. Cortec® products have been developed using proprietary VpCI® Technology, providing safer, cost-effective methods of preventing and diminishing the severe damage caused by corrosion.

PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT

VpCl® Technology opens the door for environmentally responsible methods of treatment with low toxicity and low polluting effects. Unlike corrosion inhibiting systems of the past, many Cortec® VpCls do not contain chromates or other heavy metals, nitrites, or chlorinated hydrocarbons. With Cortec® VpCls you can turn the tables on corrosion. Supported by our corrosion scientists, engineers, and testing facility, Cortec® can provide simple, environmentally friendly, cost-effective solutions to corrosion problems.

PROTECT CONTINUOUSLY

Unlike conventional rust preventatives, which must be cleaned off and disposed as hazardous waste before parts can be used, Cortec® VpCI® Technology includes many dry protection options that offer continuous protection through the action of self-replenishing Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors. Packaged metal components can be used immediately without further cleaning or degreasing required, and many VpCI® materials are easy to dispose or recycle after use.

Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors (VpCI®)

VpCI® Technology is an innovative, environmentally responsible, cost-effective option for corrosion pro-tection. Cortec® products protect with a thin, mono-molecular protective barrier. The barrier re-heals and self-replenishes, and can be combined with other functional properties for added protective capabilities. Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors form a physical bond on the metal surface, creating a barrier layer against aggressive ions.
