Cortec Corporation (St. Paul, MN) announced that VpCI-641 and VpCI-641 PTSA corrosion inhibitors for hydrotesting and freshwater cooling systems earned the USDA Certified Biobased Product label. 

Biobased Formula for Sustainable Water Treatment

  • Water-based blend of contact and Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors for protection of ferrous and non-ferrous metals in industrial waters
  • Contains 69% USDA certified biobased content
  • Can be used at fairly low concentration levels for greater economy and lower conductivity
  • Provides corrosion protection during hydrostatic testing
  • In some cases can be used in closed loop cooling systems filled with fresh water
  • Includes a PTSA tracer option
  • Biodegradable water treatment product that does not contain nitrite or phosphate inhibitors

VpCI-641 and VpCI-641 PTSA underwent third-party testing to confirm the amount of biobased content displayed on the labels. 

VpCI-641/VpCI-641 PTSA surpass minimum biobased content requirements under the Corrosion Preventatives category (53% minimum biobased content). By using these products, federal agencies and contractors can comply with federal purchasing preferences in their everyday product acquisition.

Users can choose VpCI-641 and VpCI-641 PTSA as workable alternatives to similar corrosion inhibiting water treatments that are not biobased and have higher dosage rates.
