Long distance shipping of metal products or parts can pose some serious corrosion challenges as the overseas shipping environment can be very corrosive. HYVA India LTD is a manufacturer of hydraulic cylinders and jacks used in heavy vehicles. At first HYVA was filling the oil reservoirs before shipment to ward off corrosion. That method resulted in a high oil usage requiring clean up and disposal by the customer. Even with the added oil there were a number of complaints about corrosion. HYVA needed a lower cost solution that was more effective.
The solution was to use VpCI®-329 and add it to the oil. Only 10% of the original amount of oil was used as the VpCI®-329 protected the equipment in three phases; contact, interphase and vapor phase. The end result was that labor and transportation costs were cut while totally eliminating any corrosion issue.
VpCI®-329 is a vapor corrosion inhibiting concentrate used with lubricating, hydraulic and preservation oils. This Cortec product inhibits corrosion by depositing a film which aggressively clings to metal as well as the vapor phase inhibitors that Cortec is famous for. The vapor molecules ironically bond to metal forming a protective barrier. VpCI®-329 can be used for both short term and very long term protection. It can be sprayed, brushed or dipped.
As with all Cortec products, VpCI®-329 is environmentally friendly that contains no hazardous chromates, nitrites or phosphate. It can protect ferrous metals, zinc, galvanized steel, aluminum, copper, brass, cadmium, and silver.
