Cortec's EcoLine Coatings Replace Toxic Mineral Oils

Friday, September 30, 2011

EcoLine 3220 and EcoLine 3690 are biobased and biodegradable coatings; developed to replace traditional oil based rust preventatives.

Both products are designed for extended temporary protection of multimetals, and if needed could be easily removed using a biobased Ecoline Surface Cleaner/Degreaser, eliminating expensive disposal costs associated with oils. They provide excellent corrosion protection while being environmentally safe and completely non-hazardous. EcoLine 3220/3690 are improved replacements for flammable solvents and petroleum-based products which will continue to escalate in price. They are functionally superior and cost efficient, and at the same time completely safe to work with. They conform to NACE Standard RP0487-2000.
 

EcoLine 3220 - is a canola-oil based addition to our biodegradable line of products made with renewable resources. It is a ready-to use temporary coating that offers a tenacious film which clings to metal surfaces, providing excellent contact corrosion protection in storage and shipment. In addition EcoLine® 3220 provides long lasting vapor corrosion inhibition, as well as great balance of corrosion protection and lubrication. Product is intended for indoor or sheltered protection for up to two years.
 
 

EcoLine 3690 - offers an open air corrosion protection and is excellent replacement for more expensive polluting solvent based rust preventatives such as Tectyl and Cosmoline. Made from renewable materials and containing canola oil as a carrier, it has an excellent thermostability and no effect on rubber, plastics or paints. This coating is designed for marine and high humidity conditions. The film is self-healing and moisture-displacing, providing superior protection against aggressive environments.
