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.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
