Additives combat corrosive effects of salts and fluids

It can often be necessary to use corrosive seawater, brine solutions, or deicing chemicals for municipal and industrial applications, but these can create a major problem for any metals in the system. Cortec’s new brochure, “VpCI Additives for Deicing Salts and Fluids,” describes additives to combat these  corrosive fluids containing salts. VpCI additives form a thin molecular corrosion inhibiting layer that adsorbs on the surface of the metal, displacing existing water, chlorides, or other corrosive contaminants on the surface.
