Cortec Bio Fuel Additive Provides Corrosion Protection and Better Engine Performance

Powered by Nano VpCI®- is a new specially formulated, biobased, biodegradable, multifunctional fuel additive to bio-fuels, produced using renewable and sustainable raw materials. This environmentally friendly product serves as a corrosion inhibitor, fuel stabilizer and water emulsifier for biodiesel, diesel, gasoline, gasohol mixtures and other bio-fuels. It provides premium multiphase corrosion protection, lubricity and elastomer protection allowing better engine performance.

Easy to blend VpCI®- 705 Bio will provide powerful corrosion protection to upper cylinder walls, piston heads and rings during operation or shutdown.

VpCI®-705 Bio provides excellent corrosion protection for all of the common engineering metals used in automotive fuel systems including tin plated and galvanized steel, cast iron, aluminum, copper base alloys, solder, zinc and die cast alloys. VpCI®- 705 Bio enables unique multimetal corrosion protection in all phases: liquid, interface and vapor phases above and below the fuel level. It can be used in operation or storage.

This additive does not contain trace metals, chlorides, chromates, nitrites or phosphates and does not form corrosive combustible products. It absorbs water in tank and fuel line and can be fogged into fuel tanks.

In industry there is often a requirement for large fuel storage tanks and systems. This can cause problems such as fuel separation and potentially freezing in cold climates. Cortec®’s VpCI®-705 Bio helps alleviate this problem by reducing fuel freezing point. It provides stability and reduces the build-up of static charges that cause explosions.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

  • Fuel tanks
  • Carburetors
  • Fuel pumps
  • Upper engine cylinder components

VpCI®-705 Bio conforms to military specification MIL-I-2501, ASTM D665-92 and NACE RP0487-2000. It is General Motors corporation Approved Part no10661800 and contains EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) Identification #1733-0002.
