More Effective Corrosion Inhibitors - More Efficient Delivery Systems

Multimetal Protection

A full range of corrosion inhibitors are available to protect ferrous and non-ferrous metals, including formulations that protect combinations of metals.

Short-term and Long-term Protection

There’s a Cortec® solution whether you need temporary protection during in-plant processing, medium-term protection for shipment and storage, or extended protection for lay-up, mothballing, and field service.

Health, Safety and Pollution Control

Cortec’s formulations, using the newest chemical technology available, help alleviate your concerns in the areas of health, safety, flammability, and pollution control.

For a variety of environmental conditions

Now you can effectively protect your metals and products against humidity and aggressive atmospheres as well as against corrosive industrial, marine, and tropical atmospheres.

Protected parts are immediately ready for use

The protective invisible layer deposited by the Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors (VpCIâ„¢) needs no removal. No degreasing, scraping, cleaning, or further preparation is necessary before processing, installation, or use. Your VpCIâ„¢ protected components, parts, and finished assemblies are always ready for immediate use. Cortec's barrier coatings are easily removed with conventional cleaning methods.

Does not alter most material properties

In the majority of cases, the invisible protective ionic layer of VpCIs does not alter important surface properties. This is true even for the most precision electronic devices where conductivity, permittivity, and dimensional tolerances are crucial.

For tiny electronic devices to tanker holds

The VpCI™ technology protects any size products — from printed circuit board components during process, or stored parts in a small box, to large containerized shipments.

How Cortec® VpCl™ Cut Costs

Use the VpCI technology in each stage of the product’s lifecycle, starting from the production of metal stock to actual use in the field. When properly applied, Cortec's VpCl™ Technology substantially cuts time and cost throughout the entire product life cycle: manufacturing, storage, shipping, and field service.

Cortec's VpClâ„¢ products eliminate the extra processing steps such as cleaning, degreasing, rust removal, pickling, sandblasting, and reprotecting. You will have less re-work, fewer rejects, improved quality, reduced rust claims, and extended equipment life.

  • Multifunctional products.
  • More effective protection.
  • Efficient delivery systems that make it economical to treat hard-to-protect items.
  • Easy application.
  • Improved health, safety, and pollution control.
  • Elimination of extra processing steps in most cases there is no need to remove the VpCIâ„¢ product.
  • Extended equipment life.

Multifunctional Products

From packaged products stored indoors to products located outdoors in adverse conditions, the new generation VpCIâ„¢ Technology makes it more profitable to solve a corrosion problem than to ignore it. For example, you can:

  1. Fog a heat exchanger in a few minutes and eliminate your shipping and storage corrosion problems.
  2. Protect on-site, operational electric circuitry for pennies a day.
  3. Easily spray valve flanges and stems with an outdoor coating for extended protection.
  4. Boost the protection of your lubricating oils with an additive effective for multimetal systems.

These four examples show how Cortec's VpClâ„¢ Technology successfully solves problems caused by impractical conventional corrosion treatments.


During the manufacturing of your product, whether circuit boards or metal stampings, Cortec® products easily integrate into your fabrication and assembly processes.

While eliminating the corrosion of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, Cortec® products provide lubrication, enhance production speed, and tool life to help you produce first-quality products.

Cortec® VpCI™ technology provide you with unique solution to difficult corrosion problems. Use VpCI™ powders to protect difficult-to-reach voids. Our water-based inhibitors replace oily coatings and coolants, to provide our intermediate corrosion protection. Our water soluble additives in hydro test solutions protect during and after draining. VpCI™ emitters protect electronic and electrical assemblies during the various stages of fabrication, assembly, shipping, and field operation.

Throughout the product life of your tank, valve, compressor, circuit board, electrical box, printing press, etc. Cortec® VpCI™ Technology will provide corrosion protection from beginning to end.
