Cortec has introduced a new rust preventative (RP) it says is easy to use and offers excellent corrosion protection.

VpCI-330 is easy to spray onto metal parts using a handheld trigger spray bottle or common spray equipment. Cortec says the product leaves a light protective film that is detectable but does not alter the appearance of the metal surface. This is suited for further processing and/or shipment where subsequent RP removal is not feasible or desirable.

The product is clear, ready-to-use, low-viscosity, and designed for protection of metals in indoor and outdoor sheltered conditions. Cortec says it performs effectively even under the adverse conditions of 100 per cent 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.

Product applications include gears, spindles, coils, hinges, flanges, nuts, and bolts.

VpCI-330 remains clear and homogeneous from 40 to 140 deg. F. It is non-flammable and does not contain chromates, nitrites, phosphates, secondary amines, or OSHA hazardous components.
