Cortec announced the launch of Cor-Pak Tablets, a cure to “diseases” caused by corrosion, powered by Nano VpCi.
Developed by Cortec, Cor-Pak® Tablets provide up to two years of multi-metal corrosion protection to ferrous and non-ferrous items, using a dry method and thus eliminating the costs of applying and removing coatings.
Cor-Pak Tablets, powered by Nano Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI) Technology, are nitrite, phosphate, and silicate free, making them user-friendly and easy to apply, as they only need to be inserted by manual or automated systems into a bag, box, or package. Protected parts can be used immediately.
How Cor-Pak Tablets work
After the VpCI vaporizes, they will attach to all metal surfaces, reaching even recessed areas. The protective molecular layer does not need to be removed prior to processing or operation. If opening the package disturbs the layer, it will be replenished by continuous vapor protection upon reclosing.
The VpCI will not interfere with the operation of electrical and electronic components.
Cor-Pak Tablets will protect up to 7.1 liters (0.25 cubic feet) of enclosed space per tablet.
Fields of applications of Cor-Pak Tablets
Tablets are designed to protect products, components, or assemblies when packaged in corrugated boxes, plastic wrap or bags, and metal, plastic, or wood containers. They will also protect in the corrosive environment of overseas transport.
Cor-Pak Tablets are particularly suitable for the protection of:
- Completed assemblies, parts, and components
- Sensitive electrical/electronic equipment and controls
- Marine and commercial electronic equipment
- Interior of lighting fixtures
- Motors and mechanical controls
- Tools, spare parts, and components
- Nuts, bolts, nails, screws, and fasteners
Cor-Pak Tablets conform to NACE Standard RP0487-2000, MIL-I-22110C and are RoHS compliant.
Preservation of HRSG Tubes at BSES Power Plant
Large Power Plant imported HRSG tubes and received them in a rusted condition. The plant wanted to remove the rust and preserve the high value tubes. The rust was removed with Cortec VpCI-426, followed by cleaning and neutralization with VpCI-419 cleaner/degreaser.
The tubes were dried and then coated with VpCI-368. Cor-Pak Tablets were placed inside the tubes and the tubes capped at both ends.
The stack of tubes was then wrapped with Cor-Pak VpCI Stretch Film. Cortec products were the unanimous choice because of the previous experience of preserving HRSG tubes in semi-sheltered conditions. There was no rust formation even after two years. The solution was cost-effective and left the customer pleased and satisfied.
