New Biobased Temporary Coating Prevents Rust During Storage or Shipment of Parts

Cortec®Corporation, a leading corrosion inhibitor manufacturer, has introduced EcoLine®3690, a USDA Certified Biobased Product that can be used to replace solvent-and mineral-oil based rust preventers.

EcoLine®3690 is a ready to use canola-oil-based temporary coating designed for corrosion protection for contractors who manufacture parts or equipment for the federal government and need to prevent rust in interim periods of storage or shipment. It is also good for any manufacturer around the world who wants to go to the next level of sustainability while reducing VOCs and minimizing worker exposure to mineral-oil or solvent-based RPs.

It contains 72 percent USDA certified biobased content and leaves behind an oily protective film that does not dry.

EcoLine®3690 can be easily removed with an alkaline cleaner and can help users avoid hazardous waste disposal costs associated with traditional rust preventatives.

For best results, EcoLine®3690 should be applied to clean metal surfaces by spray, roll, brush, or dip at a recommended WFT (wet film thickness) of 1.0-3.0 mils (25-75 µm). It can also be applied over painted surfaces. EcoLine®3690 has no VOCs and is temperature stable up to 180°F (82°C). It protects multiple metal types.
