Need Water-Based Coatings in Winter? Not to Worry!

December 30, 2021

Cortec® has been a leader in producing corrosion inhibiting water-based coatings that work and are often preferred for environmental and worker advantages. However, one challenge to water-based coatings is that they classify as “freezables.” This can make shipping tricky in winter months—particularly at Cortec® Minnesota headquarters where winters are notoriously cold. The good news is that we have prepared a backup plan by stocking some of our most popular water-based coatings at our Cortec® Biotechnology Campus (CBC) in Sarasota, Florida:

• CorrVerter® Rust Converter Primer
• VpCI
®-386 Clear (Topcoat)
• VpCI
®-386 Black (Topcoat)
• VpCI
®-389 (Removable Coating)
• VpCI
®-391 (Removable Coating)

Our CorteCros® plant in Split, Croatia, also has a variety of water-based coatings available to ship out from the freeze-free zone of Dalmatia:

• CorrVerter® Rust Converter Primer
• EcoShield
® 386
• EcoSpray
389
• MCI
® Architectural Coating
• VpCI
®-386 Clear
• VpCI
®-389
• VpCI
®-388
• VpCI
®-391

This selection leaves customers in warmer climates with easier access to all three water-based DTM (direct-to-metal) coating types—primer, topcoats,
and removable coatings—without the extra costs associated with shipping via insulated truck. Even while it is winter up north in Minnesota and Europe, customers in the tropics and the Southern Hemisphere can carry on with their water-based coatings activities by drawing on Cortec’s stock at CBC and CorteCros
