Inconspicuous rust preventative makes it easier to protect gears, spindles and coils
Cortec is pleased to introduce a new rust preventative (RP) that offers excellent corrosion protection with an improved user experience.
VpCI-330 is easy to spray onto metal parts using a handheld trigger spray bottle or common spray equipment. The product leaves a light protective film that is detectable but does not alter the appearance of the metal surface.
This is ideal for further processing and/or shipment where subsequent RP removal is not feasible or desirable. VpCI-330 is clear, ready-to-use, low-viscosity, and designed for protection of metals in indoor and outdoor sheltered conditions.
It performs effectively even under the adverse conditions of 100 per cent relative humidity and in the presence of corrosive species such as chlorides. It protected for over 800 hours in humidity chamber testing and received a 1a rating in copper strip testing. VpCI-330 provides universal corrosion protection to ferrous metals and is compatible with yellow metals. There are many possible applications where VpCI-330 can be used as an all-purpose rust preventative.
Some good examples include (but are by no means limited to) the following:
- Nuts and Bolts
While good rust prevention is critical, it is also important not to underestimate the benefits of a product that is easy to work with. When workers have a rust preventative that is easy to use, it can lead to many potential side benefits, such as a cleaner workspace, shorter application time, less cleanup, and happier employees. When the RP is so inconspicuous that it does not need to be removed, it also saves time and hassle farther down the line where the workflow might normally be interrupted to clean off the RP.
One reason VpCI-330 is so easy to apply is that it remains clear and homogeneous from at least 40-140 °F (4-60 °C). Other positive workplace features are that it is non-flammable and does not contain chromates, nitrites, phosphates, secondary amines, or OSHA hazardous components.
