Almost everyone has at some point had a problem with products, details starting to be attacked by rust. In most cases mechanical processing is used to remove rust but there is another way to remove rust and that is with a rust remover.

Cortec VpCI 422 is an environmentally friendly, cost-effective product that works perfectly as an alternative to time-consuming mechanical processing. Cortec 422 is 100% biodegradable, easy to use and applied by spray or dip. After application, the rust remover dissolves the rust which can then be washed away with an alkaline detergent (eg Cortec VpCI 410 series).

The time to dissolve the rust depends on the size/depth of the rust attack. Cortec VpCI 422 works on a variety of materials such as metal, wood, plastic and painted surfaces. Unlike other rust removers, Cortec VpCI 422 is citrus based, making it non-toxic and non-flammable. This means that the product can be used in production processes without, in most cases, affecting the production staff.

The product is approved according to ASTM F-519-05.

Typical applications:

  • Rust removal from parts and components in production flow and in stock
  • Surfaces of tanks and containers
  • Outdoor machinery equipment and tools
  • Cars, trucks, trucks, cranes etc
  • Agricultural machinery etc

Cortec's rust remover contains VpCI® technology and is therefore not corrosive to the metals being cleaned. They are harmless to human skin and to most paints, plastics, rubber types, etc.

Most of the time we can achieve big improvements with very simple and small changes in the production process/flow says the sales manager at Tribotec. Many companies accept having some rust in their production and thus increased costs and potential quality problems towards the end customer. Sometimes the problems increase during certain times of the year - which can have a natural explanation due to humidity and temperature. With relatively simple methods, we can solve these problems.

Let us at Tribotec tackle the problem instead.

Here you will find some example of tasks.
