Vertical Integration and Quality

Cortec® is seeking to make its wide range of corrosion solutions more accessible as plants, distribution facilities, offices, and distributors increase globally.

Cortec® continues to grow as a specialty chemical company committed to finding more environmentally friendly solutions for its customers.

Cortec® began this journey by offering organic corrosion inhibiting chemistries at a time most companies still relied on inorganic chemistries. Cortec® moved on to its second technological platform with the introduction of biodegradable and biobased building blocks and now offers a growing portfolio of USDA certified biobased products.

As it continues to expand its diverse technological portfolio, Cortec® is eager to help end users find the best solution for their corrosion needs.
