Cortec VpCI-416 is a heavy-duty water-based alkaline cleaner and degreaser offerinig unique flash corrosion protection. VpCI-416 can provide corrosion protection for up to 6 months during indoor storage. VpCI-416 is formulated to meet the requirements for cleaning and corrosion protection of parts and storage equipment. VpCI penetrates to remove greases and oil deposits from machinery, engines, vehicles, construction equipment and cranes in either industrial or marine applications.
