Enhanced corrosion protection of water-based coatings systems

Enhanced corrosion protection of water-based coatings systems
Formulators looking to enhance the corrosion protection of increasingly popular water-based coatings systems can now use Cortec’s M-120, a water-based corrosion inhibitor additive that does not contain heavy metals. M-120 can be used alone or in conjunction with other inhibitors to increase the corrosion protection abilities of both water-based and solvent-based systems. It is recommended for use in acrylic and alkyd resin systems.

Barrier coating makes paper and linerboard a recyclable alternative

Barrier coating makes paper and linerboard a recyclable alternative
A waterborne moisture barrier coating developed by Cortec gives paper manufacturers the ability to create non-toxic, effective, environmentally friendly paper and corrugated-board alternatives to wax and polyethylene papers. By applying EcoShield Barrier Coating onto their Kraft paper, recycled paper and linerboard, manufacturers can produce fully recyclable and repulpable paper and boxes that resist moisture, oil, and grease.

Film protects products against corrosion

Film protects products against corrosion
Cortec’s EcoWeave is a durable tarp-like film that protects heavy raw metal materials and finished products against corrosion. EcoWeave is made at Cortec Coated Products (CCP) in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. High tech Nordson melters and slot die eliminate the need for dryers, resulting in big energy savings. A 100 percent solids coating process eliminates solvent emissions. The new process also lets Cortec provide more options to customers.

Packaging protects against corrosion during shipping

Packaging protects against corrosion during shipping
Cortec’s VpCI packaging solutions use vapor phase corrosion inhibiting technology to safeguard metal components during shipping when extreme humidity changes can put metals at risk for corrosion. During the export journey, metal parts need corrosion protection from extreme environmental conditions and humidity swings. Electronics and items like expensive high tech medical diagnostic equipment such as MRIs or ultrasounds are  devices that could benefit from corrosion protection.

Corrosion inhibiting coating gets protection

Cortec’s  VpCI-368 coating now has the addition of extra vapor phase corrosion inhibitors. Designed to   provide protection to metal substrates exposed to harsh outdoor conditions, the dark brown viscous liquid dries into a firm moisture-displacing wax-like film that can be removed by mineral spirits or alkaline cleaners such as Cortec’s own VpCI-414. The film can be used for a variety of applications where heavy-duty corrosion protection is needed.
