Cortec, a provider of innovative, environmentally-friendly corrosion control technologies, has developed two new coatings as a replacement for the traditional toxic mineral oils. EcoLine 3690 and EcoLine 3220 are the new biobased, biodegradable coatings that provide exceptional corrosion protection.
These products are non-toxic and environmentally safe materials offering extended temporary protection of metals. EcoLine 3690 and EcoLine 3220 are ideal alternatives to petroleum-based products and flammable solvents. The coatings can be easily removed by using Ecoline Surface Cleaner or Degreaser, which is less expensive compared to the disposal of oils. Both coatings comply with the NACE Standard RP0487-2000.
EcoLine 3690 coating is produced from renewable materials and contains canola oil as a carrier. It possesses outstanding thermostability and offers corrosion protection in an open environment. EcoLine 3690 is self-healing and resists moisture and it is an ideal substitute for highly expensive solvent-based rust preventatives such as Cosmoline and Tectyl. The film is mainly developed for marine and high humidity applications. It produces no effect on paints, plastics or rubber.
EcoLine 3220 is a canola-oil temporary coating that provides a tenacious film, which firmly attaches to metal surfaces. It offers superior contact corrosion protection during the product storage and shipment. This renewable coating also provides excellent balance between corrosion, protection and lubrication and enduring vapor corrosion inhibition. EcoLine 3220 is ideal for indoor protection for nearly two years.
