Cortec Corporation said that its biobased and biodegradable rust preventative, BioCorr, has received registered trademark approval from EU's Office of Harmonization. BioCorr is a water based, ready to use formulation intended for preservation of metals in storage and during transportation. This innovative solution is formulated with renewable raw materials and contains 64% biobased content. It provides multi-metal corrosion protection by combining film-forming additives with Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors (VpCIs). 
 
BioCorr is an environmentally sound alternative to hazardous petroleum derived products. This ready-to-use formulation can provide protection for up to two years of indoor storage or during shipments.  Unlike rust preventative oils, water-based BioCorr leaves a dry film on the surface of the metal that is virtually undetectable. This feature helps to create a clean workplace and prevent material waste. 
 
BioCorr is VOC free and it's biodegradable formulation enables eliminating expensive disposal costs associated with hazardous mineral oils and flammable solvents.  BioCorr does not contain any chlorinated compounds, chromates, or nitrites. It has been awarded USDA BioPreferredSM designation (www.preferred.gov).
 
Typical Applications
• Biodegradable preservative for machines and equipment 
• Temporary coating for storage and shipment 
• Protection of pipes, flanges, gears
• Cast iron, sheets, and coils
 
A daughter company of global manufacturer Daido Metal was experiencing corrosion problems during exporting of automotive parts using sea going containers. The end users of bearings, bushings and thrust washers are engine producers: Volvo and Ford. Time in transit from manufacturer’s location in Montenegro to the engine assembly plants is typically  2-4 months.  The traditional rust inhibiting oils did not prevent oxidation and pitting of the special aluminum alloy used to produce these high-tech engine components.  This resulted in significant losses from production delays and rejected parts. The customer tested BioCorr® in their laboratory with promising results and a pilot plant trial was initiated. This prompted the customer’s decision to implement a plant-wide, full scale implementation of BioCorr® to replace rust inhibiting oils. Corrosion problems during storage and shipping are solved. The bearings, bushings and thrust washers have shown no sign of corrosion, even after extended field testing up to twelve months. As a result delivered parts are oil free, dry to the touch and protected with very cost-effective method. BioCorr® also enables the company to demonstrate their clients and local community their environmental sustainability and awareness.
