Rust preventative protects gears, spindles, coils

07 April 2021

Cortec® is has introduced a new rust preventative (RP) that offers excellent corrosion protection with an improved user experience. VpCI®-330 is easy to spray onto various metal parts using a handheld trigger spray bottle or common spray equipment. The product leaves a light protective film that is detectable but does not alter the appearance of the metal surface. This is ideal for further processing and/or shipment where subsequent RP removal is not feasible or desirable. 

VpCI®-330 is clear, ready-to-use, low-viscosity, and designed for protection of metals in indoor and outdoor sheltered conditions. It performs effectively even under the adverse conditions of 100% relative humidity and in the presence of corrosive species such as chlorides. It protected for over 800 hours in humidity chamber testing and received a 1a rating in copper strip testing. VpCI®-330 provides universal corrosion protection to ferrous metals and is compatible with yellow metals.

There are many possible applications where VpCI®-330 can be used as an all-purpose rust preventative. Some good examples include (but are by no means limited to) the following: Gears, Spindles, Coils, Hinges, Flanges, Nuts and Bolts.

One reason VpCI®-330 is so easy to apply is that it remains clear and homogeneous from at least 40-140 °F (4-60 °C). Other positive workplace features are that it is non-flammable and does not contain chromates, nitrites, phosphates, secondary amines, or OSHA hazardous components.
