Conditions that Cause Machinery to Corrode

Corrosion is a complex process which results in the deterioration of various metals due to reactions with other metals and the environment.

There are a number of factors which contribute to corrosion in the parts and components of heavy-use machinery, vehicles and equipment. These factors include:

  • Abrasion
  • Fatigue (wear and tear)
  • Adhesion
  • Electrical discharges
  • Material deposition
  • Cavitation
  • Climate and temperature conditions
  • Surface erosion
  • Pollution

In industries such as manufacturing, construction, mining, shipping and logistics, where heavy-use machinery and equipment are central to day-to-day business activities, it is vital to have a strategy to control and mitigate the risks from corrosion. Controlling these risks to machinery and equipment can minimise downtime, save money and reduce maintenance requirements, increase productivity and ensure safe operation for workers.

Vapour Phase Corrosion Inhibitors                                                                                                

The VpCI®-101 corrosion inhibitor is designed to protect a variety of metals from rust, tarnish, stains, white rust and oxidation for up to 5 years and can be used in lieu of conventional rust preventatives, such as oils and decadents.

Another product is Cortec’s® Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI) 126 Series films which protect metal parts from various types of corrosion and oxidation for up to 5 years (depending on film construction thickness and application).

High Performance Coatings

Protective coatings can be ideal for certain types of metal infrastructure and machinery, and Cortec’s® VpCI®-368 can be applied on pipes, storage parts, wire ropes, steel plates, underbody coatings and machinery parts.

The VpCI®-369 is another popular product which is proven to mitigate the onset of corrosion and can providing superior protection in aggressive environments. This protective film is a temporary coating and provides a short-term corrosion prevention solution that is proven to be highly effective on a range of metal parts, machinery and equipment.

Hydrotest Additives

Our VpCI-649 is a unique, concentrated liquid formulation that protects ferrous and non-ferrous metals from corrosive solutions. This product was also designed to provide long-term protection in fresh water, steam and glycol closed loop systems.

As well as offering all the features of our standard VpCI-649, the VpCI-649 BD also includes preservatives to protect against biogrowth.

Metalworking Products 

Our VpCI®-377, meets tough anti-pollution requirements and is designed to replace oil-based preventatives. This liquid formulation forms a solution in water and is applied to metal surfaces by spraying or dipping, extending the service life of your products and protecting indoor equipment and parts.
