Keep These Handy MRO Solutions Around the Auto Shop!

January 20, 2021

Maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) are part of the normal routine at auto shops. When these tasks arise, it is important to have convenient, effective solutions on hand. Cortec’s MRO products are a great place to start, with options for cleaning, rust removal, and all-purpose lubrication. Here are some great ideas to get started!

Clean up Greasy Floors with MCI®-2061
Greasy floors are unsightly and can also be slippery. MCI®-2061 provides an easy “green” cleaning alternative to harsh solvent-based and caustic cleaning chemicals. Specially targeted microorganisms in MCI®-2061 biodegrade hydrocarbons and help to deep clean the surface while reducing pollution liabilities and even continuing to purify hydrocarbons in the rinse water.

Clean/Degrease Tools and Equipment
Several VpCI®-410 series cleaners are packaged in EcoAir® spray cans that replace traditional propellants with compressed air. These cans are perfect for carrying around the shop to spray and wipe off grease and grime on metal parts while leaving behind flash rust protection. Corwipe® 300 towelettes are even more convenient. They come in handy dispenser containers and can be used to remove light rust, grease, oil, and dust from metal parts while protecting against flash corrosion. Corwipe® 500 also includes static protection for use when cleaning electronic components.

Remove Rust with Biobased Rust Remover
Where rust shows up on an auto part or tool, workers can do quick touchup work with EcoClean® Rust Remover VpCI®-423, a biobased rust remover gel that can be left to sit on the surface for 15-20 minutes before wiping off and neutralizing with one of the EcoAir® VpCI®-410 series cleaners.

Clean/Lubricate/Protect with EcoAir® Biobased CLP
EcoAir® Biobased CLP is an all-purpose product that can be used to lubricate moving parts such as squeaky hinges or bolts frozen in place with rust. Besides being packaged in an EcoAir® can powered by compressed air rather than traditional propellants, EcoAir® Biobased CLP is a USDA Certified Biobased Product, allowing auto shops to take the “greener” route to everyday maintenance activities.
