Cortec VpCI Coatings Solve A Wide Variety Of Corrosion ProblemsVpCI Coatings protect a multitude of metal products. Applying VpCI Coatings provides fast and economical protection for exterior and interior surfaces. Our technical staff can help you decide which product you need for long lasting and complete protection of your corrosion sensitive products.Products: VpCI -398Products: VpCI -391Products: VpCI -396Productivity, Investment Protection, And Cost ReductionThe total economic loss from corrosion can approach a staggering 5% of total profit. This hugeloss comes from products that must be sold as alower grade or must be repainted, reprocessed, orscrapped due to corrosive attack while in the plantor in the field. This leads to lost productivity. Thehigh cost of corrosion also includes rust claimsand freight costs for returned goods.
The Industrial-Strength Edge In Safe VpCI Corrosion ProtectionWhether it’s sea or land, Cortec industrial-strengthcoatings withstand some of the harshest environmentsand climates. Cortec offers a broad range of high-quality, innovative, environmentally safe coatings. Our goalis to provide you with the highest technical and intelligent solutions to protect your assets. Our performanceis reliable globally, and our products provide excellentadhesion to substrates and exceptional resistance forreduced enviromental impact.Products: VpCI -391Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors (VpCI )VpCI technology is an innovative, environmentally safe, cost-effective option for corrosion protection. Cortec products protect witha thin, mono-molecular protective barrier. The barrier re-heals, selfreplenishes, and can be combined with other functional propertiesfor added protective capabilities. VpCI forms a physical bond onthe metal surface creating a barrier layer against aggressive ions.How VpCI Works VaporizesConditions enclosed atmosphere with a protective vapor.Vapor condenses on all metal surfaces.Ions dissolve in moisture layer (water electrolyte).Protective ions are attracted to metal surfaces.Ions form a thin molecular protective layer at the metal surface.Protective layer re-heals and self-replenishes through further condensation of the vapor.VpCI combines with other functional properties. Antistatic, Lubricating, Cleaning, Paint Removing, Desiccant, Polymeric, Coatings, RustRemoving, Fire Retarding.VpCI SourceMetalAnodeCathodeDissolvedVpCI ionsMolecules ofVpCI in gaseous phaseTraditional Coatings vs. Cortec Micro-Corrosion Inhibiting Coatings With Nano VpCI Traditional coatings rely on sacrificial metals (zinc, chromates,aluminum) for inhibition. Due tothe large particle size of theseinhibitors, gaps exist which allow corrosion to start and eventually expand, causing coatingfailure.Cortec Nano VpCI coatingsuse the patented VpCI technology to protect the metalsubstrate with a tight bondingmolecular structure. This system eliminates the gaps whichoccur with traditional inhibitorsand prevent corrosion fromstarting.

Removable CoatingsCortec’s removable coatings deliver exceptional multimetal protection for outside applications and salt-spray resistance. These removable coatings are an advanced, safe replacement for hazardous oil-based products. They are anexcellent choice for long-term indoor protection that lasts up to 5 years and short to medium-term (6-24 months) unsheltered outdoor protection.These completely safe and easy to usecoatings cure to a soft film and eventually harden. They are very efficient inSO2 and H 2S environments. The products leave a translucent, waxy coatingthat are easily removable, and are lowin VOC’s. Cortec’s removable coatingscan be easily removed with alkalinecleaners, such as Cortec VpCI -414.Metals protected are: aluminum, steel,cast iron, copper alloy and tin platedsteel.Cortec’s removable coatings are thebest solution on the market for applications such as equipment lay-up, partsprocessing protection, overseas shipping, maintenance repairs, and parts storage. Traditional coatings rely on sacrificial metals (zinc, chromates, andaluminum) for inhibition. Due to the large particle size of these inhibitors, gaps exist which allow corrosion to start andeventually expand, causing coating failure.Cortec’s removable coatings use the patented VpCI technology to protect the metal substrate with a tight bonding molecular structure. This system eliminates the gaps which occur with traditional inhibitors and prevents corrosion fromstarting. With environmentally safe VpCI technology, the equipment and products will get superior corrosion protection.Typical Applications Equipment lay-up Parts processing protection Overseas shipping Maintenance repairs Parts storageVpCI -368VpCI -369VpCI -372VpCI -388VpCI -389VpCI -391CorShield SolventOilWaterWaterWaterWaterWaterExterior DurabilityVery GoodGoodGoodGoodVery GoodVery GoodGoodSalt Spray1500 hrs3500 hrs 168 hrs100 hrs.600 hrs250 hrs 100 hrs2.900.20.20.10.40System TypeVOC52.399.233.426.737.134.410-20Recommended 1.0Dry To Touch30 minna1-2 hrs20-30 min10-60 min30-60 mins30 min VpCI -414SolidsRemovalVpCI -414VpCI -414VpCI -368M is:Qualified to MIL-PRF-16173E (Grades 1) NSN 8030-01-430-4898 QPL 4620-1535(1)VpCI -414VpCI -414VpCI -414VpCI -369M is:Qualified to MIL-PRF-16173E (Grade 2) Listed QPL 4260-1535 (Grade 2) NSN 8030-00-244-1298 NSN 8030-01-149-1731VpCI -414
