Clean, Lubricate, Protect with Greater Environmental Responsibility

We offer a variety of specialty products, primarily for rust prevention, that are biobased and/or biodegradable to increase the environmental responsibility of the user. These include some of our mainstay preservation and corrosion protection products, as well some unique products with which you may not be as familiar.

Cleaning & Surface Prep

Our cleaning materials include a biodegradable cleaner/degreaser that provides heavy-duty cleaning action combined with lingering protection against flash corrosion. We also have a heavy-duty biodegradable rust remover that removes corrosion, scale, and naturally occurring oxides and also brightens aluminum and copper.

Construction

Our construction materials offer an expanded variety of biobased corrosion inhibitor admixtures for concrete—such as normal set or powder admixture versions.

Lubricants

Lubricants made from vegetable oils promote longer equipment life and provide superior lubricity for bearing, chain, and roller lubrication as well as heavy-duty grease applications.

Oil & Gas Industry

For the oil and gas industry, we offer an oil spill dispersant with high biobased content, as well as a soy-based product that can be used as a long-term inhibitor in crude oil processing plants.

Preservation

In our primary area of expertise for preservation and corrosion protection, we offer two flagship corrosion inhibitors for void space protection—VpCI ®-609 and VpCI ®-337—both of which are also biodegradable formulas. These provide excellent alternatives to other methods of rust prevention such as nitrogen blanketing or dry air systems that can be expensive to install and maintain.

Water Treatment

In the realm of water treatment, we offer a green building block for scale and corrosion inhibition of open-loop and recirculating cooling systems, as well as a unique biodegradable liquid corrosion inhibitor that can be used for hydrostatic testing and other water treatment applications in need of corrosion protection.

Products

VpCI ®-415

A MIL-PRF-87937D Type IV Qualified heavy-duty, biodegradable cleaner/degreaser. Provides up to six months of corrosion protection for a variety of metals during indoor storage. Readily biodegradable according to shake flask biodegradation test method. 

VpCI ®-426

A water-based heavy duty concentrate designed to remove corrosion, scale, and naturally occurring oxides from iron, carbon and stainless steel, copper, aluminum, magnesium, and their alloys. Also brightens aluminum and copper. Biodegradable. (VpCI ®-422 is also biodegradable. See USDA Certified Biobased Products.)

MCI ®-2005 NS

Normal set version of MCI ®-2005. A water-based, organic corrosion inhibiting admixture for protection of metallic reinforcement in concrete structures. Biobased (27%). Earns credit toward LEED certification. Meets all requirements of ASTM C1582.

MCI ®-2005 AL

A normal set version of MCI ®-2005 designed for use when freezing or very high transit and storage temperatures are expected and where presence of sodium must be minimized. Biobased (20%). Earns credit towards LEED certification. 

MCI ®-2006

A powder concrete admixture that inhibits corrosion on steel reinforcing, carbon steel, galvanized steel, and other metals. 

MCI ®-2006 NS

 A normal set version of MCI ®-2006. Biobased (25%). 

EcoLine ® Bearing, Chain, and Roller Lube

A ready-to-use high quality rust preventative lubricant formulated from natural seed oil. Surpasses the lubricity of most conventional lubes. Tenacious film clings to metal surface to displace moisture. Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors protect metals not in direct contact with the lube. 

EcoLine ® Heavy Duty Grease

EcoLine ® Heavy Duty Grease is premium quality biodegradable, multipurpose grease formulated from vegetable oils. It provides superior lubricity to promote longer equipment life. 

EcoClean ® Dispersant 600

A non-toxic dispersant-emulsifier recommended for seawater that has been contaminated by oil and/or petroleum-based product spills. Prevents oil from forming a film on the water’s surface. Contains 81% biobased content. 

VpCI ®-629 Bio

A fast-acting long-term inhibitor for use in crude oil processing equipment, pipelines, refineries, and petrochemical plant equipment and systems. Forms an effective corrosion inhibiting barrier for ferrous and non-ferrous metals in the presence of water, halogens, and corrosive gases. Derived from soybeans. 

VpCI ®-609

A water-soluble, biodegradable Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor powder for wet or dry corrosion protection of ferrous metals and aluminum. Protects inaccessible and recessed surfaces. Available in EcoPouch ® packaging for protection of large volumes up to 35.3 ft³ (1 m³) per pouch. Do not use with yellow metals. 

EcoFog ® VpCI ®-337

A ready-to-use waterborne Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor for temporary protection of equipment. A complete replacement for nitrogen blanketing and dry air systems that are expensive to install and maintain. VpCI ®-337 shows 87% biodegradation in 28 days. Also available in EcoAir ® spray cans. 

S-14 Bio, Patented

A unique “green” building block designed for cooling towers and other open-loop, recirculating cooling systems. It is a powerful combination of scale and corrosion inhibitors. S-14 Bio is comprised of non-toxic, non-hazardous, and readily biodegradable ingredients, mainly a low molecular weight natural polymer based on soybean oil. 

VpCI ®-649

A unique liquid concentrate that protects ferrous and non-ferrous metals from corrosive solutions. Can be used in closed loop cooling systems, dry layup of fire extinguishing systems, and hydrostatic testing. Does not contain nitrites, phosphates, or chromates. Biodegradable.
