VpCI®-641 Hydrotest Corrosion Inhibitors Become USDA-Certified Biobased Products

Hydrotesting is a vital process in many industries, for example, in pipeline systems, fuel tanks, gas cylinders, boilers, etc. Cortec’s hydrotest corrosion inhibitors ensure that the process is environmentally responsible and economical.

Hydrotest Corrosion Inhibitors


Cortec® Corporation commits itself to manufacturing biodegradable, sustainable, and economical corrosion inhibitors. Two of its hydro test VpCI corrosion inhibitors are now as USDA-certified products – the VpCI®-641 and VpCI®-641 PTSA.

They are more economical than other hydro test corrosion inhibitors because you’ll only need to use them in lower concentrations to obtain substantive data.

Hydrotest Corrosion Inhibitors – Ideal for Water Treatment
Most industrial water pipeline systems are made from ferrous and non-ferrous metals such as galvanised steel, copper, etc. If, for example, galvanized steel undergoes corrosion when transporting drinking water, it poses some serious health risks to people.

VpCI®-641 is water based corrosion inhibitor coating and contains a VpCI corrosion inhibitor. The VpCI corrosion inhibitor is essential as it helps prevent corrosion to critical water systems infrastructure.

Both hydro test corrosion inhibitors (VpCI®-641 and VpCI®-641 PTSA) have 69% USDA-certified biobased content.

The VpCI®-641 PTSA has an effective PTSA tracker that helps monitor concentration in fresh-water cooling systems. VpCI®-641 PTSA is economical as it allows you to reuse water during hydro testing.

After the hydrotesting process is complete, disposing of wastewater should be easy because VpCI®-641 and VpCI®-641 PTSA are biodegradable. Most hydro testing corrosion inhibitors contain phosphates and nitrite inhibitors, making it difficult to dispose of wastewater.

VpCI®-641 and VpCI®-641 PTSA Hydrotest Corrosion Inhibitors Sustainability and Eco-awareness
The USDA BioPreferred® Program dedicates itself toward increasing the manufacturing and purchasing of sustainable products. In addition, the USDA BioPreferred® Program requires all federal purchases to surpass the minimal biobased content percentage (53% USDA-certified biobased content).

Corshield VpcI 146 is also a USDA certified biobased paper now.

You can get more information on this from the USDA BioPreferred® Program website.

After rigorous testing of both the VpCI®-641 and VpCI®-641 PTSA, earned a USDA Biobased Product label. The USDA BioPreferred® Program awards this label after products surpass the minimal USDA-certified biobased products requirement for corrosion protection.

Making Sense of it All
Cortec® Corporation is commits itself to manufacturing biodegradable, sustainable, and economical corrosion inhibitors. The USDA BioPreferred Program has labeled both VpCI®-641 and VpCI®-641 PTSA as USDA-certified biobased products with 69% of biobased content.

The two hydro-testing corrosion inhibitors are both economic and sustainable. They offer a more significant advantage with regard to corrosion prevention in water pipeline systems because they can be used in lower concentrations and still obtain substantive results during hydro testing.

Since these products are organic, you can reuse water during testing and dispose of it as wastewater containing organic material after the testing is complete. In addition, VpCI®-641 and VpCI®-641 PTSA function properly in closed-loop water cooling systems.

Bottom line:
Both the VpCI®-641 and VpCI®-641 PTSA are game changers in the hydro testing and liquid additive spaces. They combine economic and sustainable features that benefit our fragile environment.
