Cortec Corporation has announced that its bio-based and biodegradable rust preventative, BioCorr, has received registered trademark approval from EU´s Office of Harmonisation. 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 per cent bio-based content. It provides multi-metal corrosion protection by combining film-forming additives with Vapour 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.
