Cortec offers an environmentally friendly CLP product

CLP (clean, lubricate, protect) products are traditionally made of hazardous mineral oils and other petro-based solvents. Cortec’s new product offers an environmentally friendly alternative in the form of EcoAir® Biobased CLP, a bio-based product in an air-powered spray can.

Utilising a canola oil base, EcoAir Biobased CLP contains 89% USDA certified bio-based content. It provides excellent penetrating, lubricating, and rust preventing action for industrial, shop, and home use. It can be used for many functions such as loosening rusted parts and protecting equipment components from wear and corrosion. EcoAir Biobased CLP leaves behind a very persistent layer that resists corrosion for up to 24 months. If needed, the layer is easy to remove with common detergents.

For ease of application and added environmental friendliness, Cortec® has packaged its bio-based CLP fluid in an air-powered spray can that dispenses the lubricant without the use of flammable or ozone depleting propellants. EcoAir Biobased CLP can be sprayed in any direction, even upside down. Once the product is fully dispensed, the empty can is recyclable.

EcoAir Biobased CLP has many practical uses for MRO (maintenance, repair, and operation) around the shop or home in order to perform its clean, lubricate, and protect functions:

  • Clean – loosens and removes dirt and grime.
  • Lubricate.
  • Works as an excellent penetrant and lubricant.
  • Loosens frozen and rusted bolts and other components.
  • Extends life of machine parts by reducing friction and wear.
  • Protect – provides multi-metal corrosion protection.

EcoAir Biobased CLP can be sprayed on carbon steel, galvanised steel, stainless steel, aluminium and aluminium alloys. Typical applications include:

  • In-plant machining.
  • Bar and chain oiling.
  • Flange lubrication.
  • Lock and hinge maintenance.
  • Mould release.

EcoAir Biobased CLP is freeze stable and comes packaged in 284 g recyclable steel cans, 12 cans per carton.

In addition to EcoAir Biobased CLP, Cortec® packages a number of other corrosion protection products in environmentally friendly EcoAir spray cans and offers private label and contract fill services at its Cortec Spray Technologies plant in Spooner, Wisconsin.
