In order to avoid losses from corrosion, it is very important to apply a rust preventative. This article will explore how to prevent rust to protect metal parts awaiting the next step of machining, assembly, or shipment using breakthrough water-based rust preventative technology.
Now you can trade the labor and disposal costs of oil-based rust preventatives with Cortec water-based EcoCorr™ rust prevention technology. Used for temporary indoor protection of equipment and components, EcoCorr is convenient to use, easy to clean and offers 40% overall cost reduction over oil based rust prevention. Cortec’s Nano VpCI® technology offers excellent corrosion protection while reducing carbon footprint and cutting common labor or disposal costs associated with traditional RPs.
Water-Based Rust Prevention Technology
EcoCorr™ Water-Based RP is useful for temporary storage of countless metal parts. When applied to the metal surface by dipping, brushing, or spraying, EcoCorr™ forms a clear dry film that is suitable for robotic assembly of precision machined components. It can be used to protect a wide range of metal parts—bars and roll stock, pumps and housing, structural steel, sintered metals, castings, gears, and other precision machined components, including.Protection is good for up to two years of sheltered/indoor storage of multi-metals:
• Carbon steel
• Cast iron
• Stainless steel
• Galvanized steel
How to Prevent Rust without Oil-based RP’s
One of the biggest challenges facing manufacturers is how to prevent rust throughout all stages and processing steps. Exposed metal surfaces are vulnerable to flash rust and corrosion between manufacturing process steps. In order to avoid losses from corrosion, it is very important to apply a rust prevention technology to protect metal parts awaiting the next step of machining, assembly, or shipment. EcoCorr™ offers outstanding performance in these conditions and is an environmentally friendly, easy to use alternative. Under ASTM D-1748 testing, during which coated metal panels are exposed to approximately 100% relative humidity at high temperatures of 120°F (49°C), EcoCorr™ Water-Based RP provided more than 800 hours of protection. EcoCorr™ Water-Based RP has excellent wetting qualities but dries into a clear film that is stable up to 284°F (140°C). This film can be left on during component assembly, can be coated over with conventional paint systems, and in most cases, can be welded. All these features serve the important role of preventing flash corrosion and extending shelf-life of finished goods in an inconspicuous manner.Water-based rust prevention improves plant cleanliness and worker safety by eliminating greasy spills and hazardous elements such as nitrite, phosphate, and hazardous amines.

Water-based rust prevention improves plant cleanliness and worker safety by eliminating greasy spills and hazardous elements such as nitrite, phosphate, and hazardous amines. Special ventilation is not required for application, and labor and disposal costs associated with hazardous oil-residue removal are eliminated.
