Many types of corrosion prevention measures have been adopted over the years by the military. Now, new strategies are continually being developed and evaluated for effective corrosion control. Loss due to corrosion has become a major priority for militaries.
Some Militaries choose to do Nothing! War Readiness is a Key Factor now being taken into consideration, and Cortec® has the solutions needed that fit easily into existing application systems that will reduce costs of protection with more efficient and economical solutions. Cortec® can extend asset life and enhance war readiness.
More Effective Corrosion Control
Health, safety and pollution control.
Our MIL-SPEC VCI formulations, using the newest chemical technology available, help alleviate your concerns in the areas of health, safety, flammability and pollution control.
A full range of corrosion inhibitors is available to protect ferrous and non-ferrous metals, including formulations that protect combinations of metals to prevent galvanic corrosion. The image to the left shows an example of preservation of a MIL-SPEC AK-47, magazines and other supplies. The same principle could be applied to the preservation of MIL-SPEC AR-15 or a MIL-SPEC 1911 and all of their accessories .
Short- and long-term protection.
There’s a solution whether you need temporary protection during maintenance and operations, mediumterm protection for shipment and storage or extended protection for lay-up, mothballing and field service for anything from weaponry to ground equipment, vehicles to avionics.
For a variety of environmental conditions.
Now you can effectively protect your metals and products against humidity and aggressive atmospheres such as corrosive industrial, marine, and tropical atmospheres.
Protected parts are immediately ready for use
The protective invisible molecular layer deposited by MIL SPEC VCI rust preventatives needs no removal. No degreasing, scraping, cleaning, or further preparation is necessary before processing, installation, or use. Your protected components, parts, and finished assemblies are always ready for immediate use. MIL SPEC VCI barrier coatings are easily removed with conventional cleaning methods.
Does not alter most material properties.
In the majority of cases, the invisible protective ionic layer of MIL SPEC VCI products does not alter important surface properties. This is true even for most precision electronic devices where conductivity, permittivity, and dimensional tolerances are crucial.
For tiny electronic devices to tanker holds
Our MIL SPEC VCI products protect any size product — from printed circuit board components in processing, parts stored in a small box, large containerized shipments, to vehicles and equipment.
