NEW PRODUCT RELEASE
Powerful Rust Remover Packaged In
One of the most dangerous tasks in working
with powerful chemicals just became safer. Cortec® now offers
its Heavy Duty 426 Rust Remover in a new, patented Safe-T-Charge
package. The powerful rust remover is contained in a safe and easy-to-use
PVA water-soluble bag. Safe-T-Charge lets the operator handle the
rust remover without touching chemicals, using scoops or shovels,
or wearing any special safety equipment. It eliminates the common
danger of splashing acid or acid burns to an operator. Cortec®
Safe-T-Charge also eliminates chemical spillage and slippery work
areas that endanger worker safety.
Available in pre-measured amounts of
1, 5, and 10 pound sizes, an operator simply picks up a Safe-T-Charge
bag that equals the desired dosage size and puts them in the chemical
tank. The Safe-T-Charge bag is completely water soluble, dissolving
in water within a few minutes. The 100% active powder creates a
rust cleaning bath with a pH between 3-4 that can be used for all
types of common ferrous and non-ferrous metals. It effectively dissolves
corrosion, rust, and scale from iron, carbon and stainless steel,
copper, aluminum, magnesium and their alloys. It easily removes
tarnish and brightens copper and aluminum.
After the metal has been cleaned of corrosion,
oxidation and scale, it receives instant protection against flash
rust. The Safe-T-Charge incorporates Cortec® patented VpCITM technology
to stop oxygen from immediately recombining with the highly active
metal surface and rusting. Cortec's unique VpCIs migrate to all
areas of the metal surface that air, moisture, and corrosive agents
can reach. They form a micro-thin protective layer that stops further
corrosion for up to 2 weeks.
Fully biodegradable, Safe-T-Charge 426
Rust Remover utilizes Cortec's advanced, eco-friendly technology
to enhance environmental and worker safety. Safe-T-Charge provides
its strong corrosion-cleaning action without using dangerous fuming
acids. The 426 Rust Remover is non-toxic, does not contain heavy
metals or chelating agents, and is nitrite-free.
