In Booth B-10033, Cortec® Corporation (Saint Paul, MN) will display their newly revamped EcoAir® line of surface prep and rust prevention products packaged in eco-friendly bag-on-valve spray cans. These cans are powered by air rather than traditional flammable propellants and contain some of Cortec’s most popular corrosion solutions. The EcoAir line includes options for biobased rust removal, water-based void space protection, and water-based cleaning/degreasing with flash rust protection. The fresh new package design and labeling make it straightforward and easy for users to know how each product is applied and whether it is intended to “Clean,” “Protect,” and/or “Preserve” metals. The portable cans are convenient for maintenance personnel, production employees or preservation specialists to use for a variety of cleanup, rust removal, and rust prevention activities around the shop, on the production floor, or in remote preservation conditions where electrical-powered application equipment may not be an option.
The redesigned line includes EcoAir BioCorr® Biobased Rust Preventative, EcoAir 325 Tool & Die Rust Preventative, EcoAir 337 Void Space Rust Preventative, EcoAir 377 Multi-Metal Rust Preventative, EcoAir 414 Cleaner/Degreaser, EcoAir 422 Rust Remover and EcoAir 423 Rust Remover (gel for vertical surfaces). These products offer a variety of user-friendly benefits on top of being portable and easy to apply. Of special note is the newest addition to the collection: Tool & Die, a rust preventative specifically designed for easier application and cleanup in the tool and die industry. It is easy to spray on for protection of expensive molds and, unlike other rust preventatives that workers must clean off with solvents, it does not need to be removed before the mold is used. BioCorr and 377 are two other rust preventatives with excellent advantages over traditional oil-based and greasy rust preventatives that provide biobased and/or water-based rust prevention by leaving an unnoticeable dry protective film on metal surfaces. Both are easy to remove if necessary and promote a cleaner work area overall.
For void spaces where it is often challenging to protect hard to reach metal surfaces, 337 Void Space Rust Preventative can be fogged inside before shutting the enclosure. Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors will diffuse throughout the space and form a protective molecular layer on the metal surfaces – an easy way to protect intricate equipment internals or add a quick protective spray to a crate full of metal parts. With 422 and 423 Rust Removers, workers have two biobased options for cleaning rust off metal surfaces. Both allow rust removal in 15 minutes to 30 minutes without the harshness of other chemicals on the market. After rust removal, or simply during routine maintenance, the 414 Cleaner/Degreaser is easy to spray on for a quick surface rinse that includes flash rust protection. This line provides many great alternatives to traditional MRO (maintenance, repair, and operations) products and rust preventatives with its user-friendly and environmental advantages.
