Cortec® has introduced an environmentally friendly solution to pipeline corrosion problems – the EcoAir® VpCI-337 fogger.
VpCI-337 is a biodegradable waterborne vapour corrosion inhibitor used to protect metal parts and internal void spaces with a thin, environmentally friendly self-healing film. Vapour phase Ccrrosion inhibitors (VpCIs) in the fluid protect metal surfaces, which results in time and cost savings, with a minimum amount of product used.
Cortec has enhanced the eco-friendly nature of the corrosion inhibitor by packaging VpCI-337 into recyclable EcoAir cans. Using bag-on-valve technology, EcoAir cans are powered by compressed air and can be sprayed without releasing solvents, VOCs or aerosols into the atmosphere.
EcoAir VpCI-337 can be safely and easily transported for use in remote areas, without the need for electricity or special spray equipment. When the can is empty, users pop the top off, remove the inner bag and throw the outer aluminum can directly into the recycling.
In most cases, products protected by EcoAir VpCI-337 Fogger are ready-to-use—with no degreasing or stripping necessary. The metal will retain a clean, corrosion-free surface and the thin protective film will not affect paintability, conductivity, appearance or any other important property of metals or alloys.
EcoAir VpCI-337 is versatile for many applications including: void space protection, double wall spaces and pipes, spools and modules, and post-weld touchup.
Cortec’s EcoAir VpCI-337 fogger conforms to the following standard test methods: ASTM D-1735), ASTM D-1748, and NACE RP0487-2000.
