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.

An Expanding Portfolio of Solutions

Cortec’s wide variety of corrosion inhibiting solutions include time-tested general VpCI® and MCI® Technology for use in effectively any industry that battles rust. 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.
