Traditional rust preventatives present two major challenges. One is the issue of environmental and worker hazards from using hazardous mineral oils and flammable solvents. The other is the lack of cleanliness and workability involved in applying and removing greasy rust preventatives. Ready to meet this need is BioCorr HP, the newest generation of Cortec biobased, dry-film rust preventative. First released in 2021, BioCorr HP is worth taking another look at for advantages that go beyond environmental benefits.
Streamline the rust preventative process
BioCorr HP is a water-based, biobased rust preventative designed to preserve metals in storage and during transportation. Unlike rust preventative oils, this product leaves a dry, virtually undetectable film on the metal surface. The film displaces water and oils and also actively inhibits corrosion. BioCorr HP helps promote a cleaner workplace and prevent material waste. It also streamlines processes because it does not require removal by the end user in most cases. This ready-to-use formulation can protect multi-metals for up to two years of indoor storage (or during shipment when combined with VpCI packaging materials).
One dry film, Many possibilities
BioCorr HP is so thin and undetectable, that it can also be used in areas where there are tight tolerances. One great example is the protection of threaded mating surfaces on equipment where temporary rust prevention is needed, but where a thick greasy substance is not practical. BioCorr HP is able to provide this interim protection without being noticed or requiring cleaning later. Since Cortec’s BioCorr HP does not interfere with automatic transmission fluids, it can be used to protect transmissions as they await installation or assembly. There are countless other applications where it can be used, as well –
• Automotive components
• Pipes, flanges, and gears
• Sheets, coils, and castings
• Valve stems
• Equipment internals
• Various other manufactured components
Avoid the Hassle of Greasy Rust Preventatives
Whatever the application happens to be, BioCorr HP provides interim corrosion protection in an unobtrusive way without the mess and hassle of greasy rust preventatives.
