Corrosion protection solutions company Cortec Corporation has launched a corrosion inhibitor for the protection of food cans.

Called S-8, it is formulated from FDA-approved ingredients and can be used in a very low concentration and still provide corrosion protection in water, its vapours, and the interface.

The product is useful for the corrosion protection of metallic cans with different food items during their washing, or sterilisation of the packed food.

The non-toxic “green” filming inhibitor is compatible with most products used in water treatment and protects against corrosion in the presence of disinfectants. It does not hydrolyse during the application.

Sodium salt of fatty amino acids and amino alcohol are the active ingredients of S-8.

Benchtop laboratory tests show film persistency and stability in a wide temperature range.

S-8 is compatible with the majority of water chemistries and is able to form a thin protective layer that will not cause sticky deposits.
