M-141
Description: M-141 is an additive that can be used in aqueous acrylic emulsions and polyurethane dispersions to improve corrosion resistance and durability. Using M-141 will increase water resistance, coating hardness, substrate adhesion, and chemical resistance.M-141 functions as a cross-linker to increase the cohesive strength of a coating by building a network between the polymer chains increasing abrasion resistance and film hardness. The additive reacts with the protective film to provide better adhesion and permeability properties; which in turn helps increase the corrosion resistance of a coating.

VpCI®-658
Description:
The corrosion of metals under thermal insulation is an industry wide problem, specifically during idle cooling down periods. The presence of condensed water, airborne contaminants and corrosive agents that are generated through thermal decomposition and aging of insulating materials further increases the rate of attack on underlying metal surfaces.

Due to failure of outer water barrier wraps or jackets, the moisture content of the insulation can often reach the point of saturation. This, combined with elevated temperatures, can cause corrosion rates to multiply to extremely high levels. VpCI-658 has been specifically designed to counter this problem with existing insulation, avoiding the additional expense of replacing the insulation and refinishing the underlying metal.
