Benefits of VpCI

Traditional anti-corrosion methods like Rust Preventative Oil (RP Oil) and Paints are messy, costly and can be hazardous to personnel and the environment.  Too often they are ineffective. 

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.  Many products are water or organic base with very low VOC’s and environmentally acceptable. Non-toxic and recyclable.

Cost Effective

Cortec’s VpCI® 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.

No surface preparation required and no cleaning/degreasing for product use.  No hazardous waste disposal cost.  Simple Application.


Industry Proven Track Record

More than 40 years of application and testing ensure of reliable results. With Customers worldwide-Caterpillar, GE, Siemens, Toyota, Honda, Ford, GM, Chrysler, Cummins.


Multimetal Protection.

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


Short-term and Long-term Protection.

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


For a Variety of Environmental Conditions.

Now you can effectively protect your metals and products against corrosion from all aggressive atmospheres.


Protected Parts are Immediately Ready for Use.

The protective invisible layer deposited by Cortec® Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors (VpCI®) needs no removal. No degreasing, scraping, cleaning, or further preparation is necessary before processing, installation, or use. Your VpCI® protected components, parts, and finished assemblies are 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 Cortecs 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.

Cortecs VpCI® technology protects any size products from printed circuit board components during process, stored parts to large containerized shipments.


VpCIs are compatible with many synergistic fluids, coatings, and technologies.

VpCI® technology can be integrated into nearly every process.
