Cortec Rust Preventive Offers Easy-to-Use, All-Purpose Rust Protection
Inconspicuous rust preventive makes it easier to protect gears, spindles, coils and more.
VpCI-330 is clear and ready-to-use, featuring a low viscosity and is designed for protection of metals in indoor and outdoor sheltered conditions.
Cortec’s VpCI-330 rust preventive (RP) is said to offer excellent corrosion protection with an improved user experience, making it easier it easier to protect gears, spindles, coils, hinges, flanges, nuts, bolts and more.
The company says the RP is easy to spray onto metal parts using a handheld trigger spray bottle or common spray equipment. The product leaves a light protective film which is detectable but does not alter the appearance of the metal surface. This characteristic makes it well suited for further processing and/or shipment where subsequent RP removal is not feasible or desirable.
VpCI-330 is clear and ready-to-use, featuring a low viscosity, and is designed for protection of metals in indoor and outdoor sheltered conditions. The company says it performs effectively even under adverse conditions of 100% relative humidity and in the presence of corrosive elements such as chlorides. In testing, it protected for over 800 hours in humidity chamber testing and received a 1a rating in copper strip testing. VpCI-330 is said to provide universal corrosion protection for ferrous metals and is compatible with yellow metals.
The product results in cleaner workspaces, shorter application times and less cleanup. Also, the RP is so inconspicuous that it does not need to be removed, which saves time and effort further down the process where the workflow might normally be interrupted to clean off the RP.
The VpCI-330 is easy to apply because it remains clear and homogeneous from at least 40-140°F (4-60°C). It is also non-flammable and does not contain chromates, nitrites, phosphates, secondary amines or OSHA-hazardous components.
Machining operations such as turning, milling, drilling and grinding leave traces of contaminants behind on workpieces. Ultrasonic cleaning allows for the removal of coolant, chips, polishing paste and other residue in a quick, reliable and economical manner.
Dan Walters' invention is a part washing machine that attaches directly to the machine tool while occupying about 10 square feet of floor space. The Wheelie Washer is a conveyor-like system that takes the parts through various chemicals and solutions, removing the oil from each part and drying them.
