VCI Technology Permanent Coatings Product List

Primers - Providing a good base for your anti-corrosion coatings system

A good primer provides an important baseline for any coatings system, not less so when corrosion protection is at stake. Primers provide good adhesion to the underlying ferrous and non ferrous metal surface and also offer good inner-coat adhesion to bond well with the topcoat. The end result is a stronger barrier against corrosion. Most standard applications require a primer and a topcoat; however, protection can be further enhanced with a two component primer system applied before the topcoat. We can offer specific primers to coat difficult substates such as stainless steel and galvanized steel.

Removable Rust Preventive Coatings

Cortec’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 an excellent 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 use coatings cure to a soft film and eventually harden. They are very efficient in SO2 and H2S environments. The products leave a translucent, waxy coating that are easily removable, and are low in VOC’s. Cortec’s removable coatings can be easily removed with alkaline cleaners, such as Cortec® VpCI®-414. Ferrous and non ferrous metals protected are: aluminum, steel, cast iron, copper alloy and tin plated steel.

vpci-368
Cortec’s removable coatings are the best solution on the market for applications such as equipment lay-up, parts processing protection, overseas shipping, maintenance repairs, and parts storage. Traditional coatings rely on sacrificial metals (zinc, chromates, and aluminum) for inhibition. Due to the large particle size of these inhibitors, gaps exist which allow corrosion to start and eventually 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 from starting. With environmentally safe VpCI® technology, the equipment and products will get superior corrosion protection.
