Description:
CorrVerter is a water-based primer recommended for application to rusty or poorly prepared steel surfaces where further corrosion protection is required and good surface preparation is difficult to achieve. CorrVerter is formulated to penetrate rust, eliminate rust, penetrate to the bare metal, and stop further rusting.CorrVerter contains a novel chemical chelating agent that modifies the surface rust into a hydrophobic passive layer. CorrVerter combines the above mentioned chelating agent with a high solids waterborne latex with extremely low water vapor permeability. The combination of the active chelating agent with a film-forming latex, thickeners and dispersant offers a unique formulation for a primer with excellent protection against re-rusting.CorrVerter does not contain tannic or phosphoric acids, provides long-term corrosion protection for poorly prepared substrates, and can be topcoated with solvent-based and water-based paints with no bleeding. For outdoor applications VpCI-386 or VpCI-387 can be utilized. For indoor applications, VpCI-396 may also be used.The combination of CorrVerter and VpCI-396 provides the best immersion coating for submersion in water, salt water, hydro carbons and high salinity water.
Application: Outdoor storage, aircraft, elevators, storage tanks, vehicles, pumps, cargo holds, marine equipment.
Package:
CorrVerter is available in 5 gallon (19 liter) plastic containers. Keep product from freezing. The shelf life of the coating is one year.

Description: CorShield® Gold is a brilliant true gold colored waterbased coating. It has excellent salt spray and humidity resistance similar to VpCI®-386 Aluminum and is available in one package system. CorShield® Gold provides protection in harsh, outdoor, unsheltered applications. The complex mixture of nontoxic organic inhibitors and a platelet type gold pigment offers protection that can compete with zinc rich coatings. This special combination of additives, a platelet pigment, and a polymer barrier, significantly retards the reaction of metal ionization and repels water. It protects against corrosive electrolytes and aggressive environments, thus preventing corrosion.
Package:CorShield® Gold is available in 5 gallon (19 liter) pails and 55 gallon (208 liter) drums, and liquid totes.

Description:
EcoPrimer™ is a core shell acrylic modified alkyd emulsion with bio-based primer. EcoPrimer™ provides good adhesion, salt spray resistance, and extremely low VOC. EcoPrimer™ has a fast drying time (20-30 minutes dry to touch). Its water-based formulation makes it easier to comply with environmental regulations governing solvents and VOC limits. Clean up is easy by using soap and water.Features:
• 30% bio based
• Water-reducible
• VOC compliant
• Fast drying
• Excellent adhesion
• Extremely low VOC
Application:
EcoPrimer may be applied by spray or brush. A film thickness of 1.5-4.0 dry mils (37.5-100 microns) is recommended. The coating dries to touch in 20-30 minutes; however it takes approximately one week before the coating is fully cured. Topcoats can be applied between 30 minutes and 8 hours after the primer is applied, depending upon the type of top coat and the drying conditions.Metals Protected:
• Carbon steel
• Stainless steel
• Galvanized steel**
• Aluminum**** A wash primer such as VpCI®-373 green applied at 0.5-1.0 mils (12.5-25 microns) is recommended before applying the EcoPrimer to these substrates.
Package:
EcoPrimer is available in 5 gallon pails (19 liters), 55 gallon (208 liter) drums, or 275 gallon (1040 liter) totes.Do not allow product to freeze.

Description: Cortec® EcoSonic® ESD Paper combines corrosion inhibiting and static-dissipative properties to provide a complete packaging paper for your valuable items. This product eliminates static electricity buildup through the use of an environmentally friendly coating made from soybean oil that is coated onto the surface of the paper. EcoSonic® ESD Paper performs better on the static half life test (a test with an environment consisting of little or no humidity) than papers with conventional anti-stat coatings consisting of Alkyl Ammonium Chlorides, typical ethoxylated amines, typical imidazolines, phosphated esters, and nonionic based antistat coatings.
Package:Custom sizes and constructions available upon request.

Description:
VpCI-2026 Top Coat is a 100% solids, 2-component, novolac epoxy coating designed for environments that require a high degree of chemical or temperature resistance. VpCI-2026 Top Coat is available in clear, and can be colored with any of the VpCI-2026 HPCS colorants.
Application:
The recommended application of this product involves pouring it in a narrow line directly onto the surface and then spreading it with a squeege. Spread the coating in a continuous manner from one side of the area being coated to the other. Immediately follow with a 3/8” (0.95cm) nap shed resistance roller. The VpCI- 2026 must be rolled as evenly as possible. To do this, roll forward in a straight line and then roll the same column backwards. Overlap the next column to be rolled by 1/2” (1.27cm) with the previously rolled column. Avoid excess agitation of the liquids with the roller. This will lessen chances of bubbling of the final film. The individual(s) applying the VpCI-2026 Top Coat should be wearing “spiked sandals”.
