New Shower Cap Keeps Out Water and Stops Rust On Metal Parts
CorrCap, the latest in protective "shower cap" designs, is the new Fall Fashion in easy wear for the
automotive components, ends of brakes, engines, electrical assemblies and connectors. The snug fitting elastic cap easily slips over the end of exposed bare metal sections to seal out moisture, water,
and corrosive atmospheres.
The simple-to-use slip-on/slip-off shower cap requires no chemical dosages or mixing, no tools or
special application techniques. In one easy step, an operator covers the exposed end and protects virtually any multi-metal assembly. CorrCap offers the user a fast, effective method that any
operator can use to protect exposed assemblies against corrosion for overnight, in storage, or during shipment.
Like a shower cap, CorrCap is highly flexible. It allows operators to easily cover almost any shape
quickly. During storage or shipment of parts, the transparency of the CorrCap makes it easy to identify specific assemblies and to visually inspect the condition of an assembly without removing the elastic cap.
CorrCap stops oxidation, tarnish, corrosion, and rust. Effective for most ferrous and non-ferrous
metals, Cortec's patented VpCI® forms a micro-thin inhibiting layer on exterior metal surfaces. Its unique vapor phase action reaches all recessed areas, voids, cut-outs, and crevices that are readily
prone to overnight tarnish and flash rusting.
The micro-thin VpCI® layer provides clean, safe protection. Cortec® VpCI® does not require any
removal. Parts are ready for immediate use without the need for cleaning or degreasing, thus saving labor, material, and chemical disposal costs. CorrCap is environmentally friendly and can be
recycled when its useful life is complete. One CorrCap can be used for up to one year before recycling.
