PRESS RELEASE: Cortec® Unveils Vibrant New Lubricants Website!

July 28, 2021

Cortec® Corporation is proud to unveil its new Cortec® Lubricants website! The brand-new online destination is a complete revamp of the old website and offers a fresh user experience with professional appeal. Best of all, the website delivers innovative solutions to

  • Reduce friction
  • Extend service life
  • Prevent rust
  • And keep metals cool!

Enhanced Corrosion Protection Options

Lubricants are a vital part of everyday life that keeps society running smoothly—from door hinges to car wheels to power turbine gears. One of the unique aspects of Cortec® lubricants is that many are enhanced with proprietary VpCI® Technology for extra protection against corrosion in severe environments or during layup. Some have the added benefit of vapor-phase action that allows the corrosion inhibitors to vaporize and migrate to recessed areas and cavities within the same enclosed space as the lubricant.

Exciting Biobased Alternatives to the Status Quo

Another special feature of the Cortec® Lubricants website is its large selection of EcoLine® biobased greases. These present an excellent environmentally responsible alternative to petroleum-based greases. Not only are many of these greases USDA Certified Biobased Products—they also offer a variety of biodegradable options with a lower risk of pollution than traditional lubricants if accidentally spilled on the ground.* EcoLine® greases cover everything from rail curves, to food machinery, to semi-truck fifth wheels, to wire rope lubrication, to enhanced vapor-phase corrosion protection for extreme environments. Cortec® also offers biobased cutting fluid and biobased alternatives to petroleum-based general-purpose lubricants/penetrants for the environmentally conscious user.

Better User Experience

The Cortec® Lubricants website offers improved user experience and is designed for easy navigation according to product type:

  • Greases
  • Oils and Additives
  • Lubricants
  • Metalworking Fluids

The “Products” page includes a list of helpful questions to ask in order to narrow down one’s choice of a Cortec® lubricant:

  • Do I need grease, oil, cutting fluid, a general-purpose product, or an additive for my own oil?
  • Do I require lubrication/corrosion protection during operation, layup, or intermittent use?
  • Will parts be exposed to extreme/harsh conditions?
  • Do I need a biobased, biodegradable product?
  • If using grease, what NLGI grade do I need?
  • Are there special requirements for indirect food contact?

The website also includes background information for anyone who wants to learn more “About Cortec®,” including Cortec’s growth from a fledgling company to one with a global distribution network and a continuing international focus on developing environmentally responsible solutions for customers. The “Brochures” tab makes it easy to find relevant Cortec® print and online resources for the lubricants market, and the “Contact Us” page offers a simple way to connect with Cortec® for further assistance in the selection or application of a lubricant or other corrosion control solution.

The fresh and vibrant Cortec® Lubricants website awaits! Get started today finding new solutions to reduce friction, extend service life, prevent rust, and keep metals cool when you visit:
