Superior protection for ferrous metals in contact with fuel and corrosive gases

Presserv provides solution to the corrosive nature of gas travelling through pipelines to power the Netherlands using VpCI-706

Cortec VpCI 706


VpCI®-706 is specially formulated for use as an additive for diesel and biodiesel fuels. The product provides superior corrosion protection for ferrous metal surfaces in contact with the fuel, as well as the surfaces above the fuel level.

Adding VpCI®-706 to diesel tanks before shipment protects heavy equipment fuel tanks and systems from corrosion during storage, shipment, and equipment use. This lowers the risk of monetary loss and customer dissatisfaction from corrosion claims.

Because VpCI®-706 is fully compatible with diesel and biodiesel and does not affect engine performance, the additive can be used in the tank during engine operation. The engine can be safely started in order to drive heavy equipment in and out of the shipping or storage compartment for easier loading and unloading. VpCI®-706 can also be left in the diesel tanks for continued corrosion protection during storage and operation for truck or heavy equipment.

Although VpCI 706 is designed as a fuel additive, the chemistry of the product and the high concentration of vapour corrosion inhibitor makes it an ideal corrosion control solution for hydrocarbon pipework. Injected into the pipework at a given rate, Cortec VpCI 706 will provide a protective molecular layer on the pipe internals, blocking harmful gases from the steel.


• Fuel tanks

• Fuel systems


• May be used in operation, storage, and shipment

• Fully compatible with diesel and biodiesel fuels

• Provides protection in liquid and vapor phase, and at liquid/air interface

• Does not contain trace metals, chlorides, chromates, nitrites, or phosphates

• Does not contain additives known to create precipitates and filter issues

• Can be fogged or poured directly into gas tanks

Adding VpCI-706 to diesel tanks before shipment protects heavy equipment fuel tanks and systems from corrosion during storage, shipment, and equipment use.


VpCI®-706 was specifically designed for protection of carbon steel.


Add VpCI®-706 to diesel fuel or directly to fuel tanks. Dosage: 0.5% per volume of tank to be protected. This dosage is sufficient to protect fuel tank during overseas shipment, and/or storage in hot and high humid climates. For less severe conditions, the dosage may be reduced. Please consult Cortec® Technical Service for specific dosage recommendations. It is recommended to leave an operational amount of diesel fuel in the tank during shipping and storage.
