User-friendly solution to prevent corrosion of pipes being stored in a yard


A  leading manufacturer of steel pipes and rebar, with a production capacity of more than one million MT annually, needed a user-friendly solution for corrosion on the pipes that were lying rusting in their yard.


  • Organic and biodegradable rust remover VpCI®-422 was proposed for rust removal on the pipes, followed by the use of VpCI®-414 alkaline cleaner/degreaser to clean the pipes. 

  • A dipping tank was used to apply both VpCI® products, providing effective rust removal and cleaning. 

  • The customer was extremely satisfied with Cortec’s user-friendly recommendations of VpCI® products for rust removal and cleaning.
