EcoAir® 422 non-toxic rust remover from Cortec® is a USDA 92% Certified, bio-based, water-based technology that provides multi-metal corrosion protection. The product is also biodegradable and non-toxic. Packaged in an air-powered spray can, it removes rust and stains without polluting and is nonflammable. EcoAir 422 will remove corrosion from metal without creating waste disposal difficulties and is far more operator friendly than traditional rust removers. It will not adversely affect paints, plastics, wood, textiles, ceramics or rubber. Removal of corrosion from metal is very easy, just apply the product and rinse with water.

EcoAir 422 is completely organic and does not require special disposal for typical use. It is especially helpful for outdoor and marine applications where chemical waste disposal can be a problem. The rust remover can be used in labor-intensive areas such as continuous assembly and packaging lines, minimizing effects on production efficiency. VpCI®-422 G is also available as a modification of VpCI-422, which is recommended for galvanized steel. EcoAir 422 Rust Remover is packaged in an air-powered spray can that makes a major step forward in spray-can technology. The can is powered by compressed air that completely replaces chemical propellants. A four-layer EcoPouch is inserted into a recyclable aluminum can, and then the can is pressurized. Finally, the EcoPouch is filled with the liquid. As the valve is depressed, the surrounding pressure expels the bag's internal fluids until the product is used up. EcoAir packaging is safe to use, ship and store and has no environmental impact or chemical propellants.
