Cortec is meeting the demands of mold, tool and die manufacturers, developing the EcoAir Tool & Die Rust Preventative aerosol to protect tooling assets during shipping, storage and transport.

The vegetable oil based, non-flammable spray was originally tailored for a large U.S. tool and die manufacturer looking to eliminate the possibility of corrosion on a 18 tonne plastic-injection mold during its six week shipment to Europe.

The EcoAir preventative was sprayed on the internal surfaces of the mold's two-cavity automotive interior to ensure corrosion protection, as well as water displacement and cleaning properties for any process-related fluids remaining on the mold.

Unlike traditional rust preventatives that need solvent-based removers to be cleaned off the mold, Cortec's EcoAir spray does not need to be removed, reducing both labour and hazardous waste disposal.

The EcoAir Tool & Die Rust Preventative can also be used to clean grease, oils and adhesives off metal surfaces, displace moisture and preserve all types of carbon or alloy-based products for up to 24 months indoors.
