Cleaning is a critical aspect of corrosion protection that unfortunately leaves metals susceptible to flash corrosion. Cortec® solves this problem by providing corrosion inhibiting additives that can be used directly in cleaning fluids. These additives protect metals against flash corrosion with varying ranges of extended corrosion protection.

  • M-95: Versatile water soluble additive for various multimetal systems requiring vapor phase and contact protection. Causes little to no foam. 5 gallon (19 liter) pails, 55 gallon (208 liter) drums, liquid totes, and bulk.
  • M-235: Prevents corrosion of yellow metals. Can be added to cleaners such as soaps, detergents, and strong alkali or acid cleaners. Package: 5 pound (2.3 kg) pails, 50 pound (23 kg) and 100 pound (45 kg) fiber drums.
  • M-238: Effective vapor and contact corrosion inhibitor for a variety of oil- and solvent-based systems. Package: 5 gallon (19 liter) pails, 55 gallon (208 liter) drums, liquid totes, and bulk.
  • M-370: Multimetal corrosion preventive additive for alkaline cleaners/degreasers. Prevents flash corrosion on metal surfaces and forms a hydrophobic film that is virtually undetectable when dry. Also available in A (aluminum), NS (non-surfactant), HS (high surfactant), and C (additional protection for cast parts and rough surfaces) versions. Package: 5 gallon (19 liter) pails, 55 gallon (208 liter) drums, liquid totes, and bulk.
  • M-415: Strong vapor phase corrosion inhibitor additive for cleaners. Contains FDA and USDA approved ingredients. Package: 5 gallon (19 liter) pails, 55 gallon (208 liter) drums, liquid totes, and bulk.
  • M-435: Versatile, no-VOC three phase corrosion inhibitor for water-based fluids. Can also be used in solvent-based systems. Package: 5 gallon (19 liter) pails, 55 gallon (208 liter) drums, liquid totes, and bulk.
  • S-8: Wash water additive for protecting food cans from corrosion during washing or sterilization. Contains only FDA approved ingredients. Package: 5 gallon (19 liter) pails, 55 gallon (208 liter) drums, liquid totes, and bulk.
  • S-111: Multimetal flash corrosion inhibitor to be formulated into alkaline cleaners. Package: 5 pound (2.3 kg) pails, 50 pound (23 kg) and 100 pound (45 kg) fiber drums.
