Rust removal and protection
According to Croatia-headquartered Cortec its new VpCI-426 Descaler/Rust Remover will remove corrosion, scale and naturally occurring oxides from iron, carbon and stainless steel, copper, aluminum, magnesium and their alloys.
Nano-VpCI is a water-based, heavy duty rust remover available in the form of liquid, powder and gel. Cortec claims this non-polluting product when compared to other industrial products eliminates and reduces virtually all waste disposal problems.
VpCI-426 Descaler/Rust Remover brightens magnesium and aluminium, leaving a shiny surface that provides long-term corrosion protection. This water-based liquid is also excellent at removing calcium carbonate and sulphate. The product is so safe that it can be used for household tasks, claims Cortec. VpCI-426 Descaler/Rust Remover stays in place on vertical and difficult to treat surfaces where corrosion is heavy, allowing extra time for it to remove corrosion.
Cortec says this non-toxic, nitrite free rust remover has increased performance over equivalent products while significantly reduces costs of surface preparation. It can be used in areas that cannot be sandblasted or cleaned with power tools.
Reliance Power steam and gas turbine generators supplied by GE – USA were lying in the open yard at a port. The packing was damaged, and rust had started forming in many parts of the generators. There was an indefinite delay in carrying out the installation of the equipment due to a sudden surge in raw material price. The customer wanted to preserve the costly generators for a minimum of one year. All rust was successfully removed using VpCI-426 Rust Remover. Cleaning and neutralizing was completed with Cortec’s VpC-419 and the generators were wrapped with VpCI-126 Blue film and covered with tarpaulin. Based on Cortec product credentials submitted to customer’s technical team, Cortec was highly preferred against the competition.
