Cortec® Adds Extra VpCI® Protection to Time-Proven Corrosion Inhibiting Coating!

Cortec’s time-proven VpCI®-368 coating has just become more powerful with the addition of extra Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors! Already, VpCI®-368 provides excellent 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® VpCI®-414.

The film can be used for a variety of applications where heavy-duty corrosion protection is needed:

• Pipe coating

• Parts storage

• Underbody coating

• Wire rope

• Steel plate

• Machined parts

VpCI®-368 has an extensive record of use for mothballing and layup of equipment, protection of shipments, and preservation of spares.

Now, VpCI®-368 EVP (Extra Vapor Protection) is also available for application in complex, sealed spaces where a greater concentration of vapor inhibitor is beneficial. The extra dose of Cortec® VpCI® vaporizes from the coating, fills the enclosed space, and adsorbs on difficult-to-reach surfaces. This is helpful on applications such as pipe internals where it is challenging to thoroughly cover all metal substrates.

VpCI®-368 EVP coating is flexible and offers excellent outdoor protection that is much easier to handle and remove than traditional wax-based coatings commonly used in military and similar applications. VpCI®-368 EVP is UV resistant and passes 900-1500 hours of ASTM B-117 intense salt spray testing applied at 2-3 mils on carbon steel. It also provides multi-metal protection on stainless steel, copper, aluminum, and cast iron. The cured film is heat stable up to 392°F (200°C) and is commercially equivalent to MIL-PRF-16173E (Grades 1 and 2). It can be applied by spray or brush.
