Environmentally friendly, VpCI-389 is a water-based, temporary coating that promises exceptional multi-metal protection for outside applications and salt-spray resistance. It is also viable for long-term indoor protection that lasts up to 5 years and short to medium-term (six to 24 months) unsheltered outdoor protection. This completely safe and easy to use coating cures to a soft film and eventually hardens. It is very efficient in SO2 and H2S environments. The product leaves a translucent, waxy coating that is easily removable and is low in VOC’s and dilutable with water. VpCI-389 can be easily removed with alkaline cleaners, such as Cortec VpCI-414. It is available in ready-to-use form - VpCI-389 D (1:1). Metals protected are: aluminum, steels, cast iron, copper alloys and tin plated steel. For more details, go to
