Bio-Based Soybean Chemistry Enhances Long-Term Rust Protection and Improves Safety

Cortec® Corporation, in its continuing advancement in green chemistry, has
enhanced its EcoLine® Long-Term Rust Preventive. The product is now
verified as 85% bio-based by tests conducted at the Iowa State University
as part of the EPA's Federal Bio-based Product Preferred Procurement
Program (FB4P), dictated by the Farm Bill of 2002. EcoLine® Long-Term Rust
Preventive is environmentally/user safe and provides long-term rust
protection for multi-metals placed indoors or outdoors.

Utilizing revolutionary soybean derivative methyl esters in conjunction with
Cortec's patented Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibiting (VpCI(TM)) Technology,
EcoLine® Long-Term Rust Preventive assures multi-metal corrosion protection
up to 24 month indoors and up to 6 month outdoors. This rust preventative
performs excellent under harsh coastal and marine conditions. In addition to
long-term rust protection, the new EcoLine® Rust Preventive yields
exceptional penetrating properties, cutting through surface contamination or
fluids. This bio-based product works great for components in motion by
providing them with extra needed lubricity. It also helps loosen frozen and
rusted parts.

A great advantage of the EcoLine® Rust Preventative is its neutral smell
compared to the oily, pungent odor from conventional rust preventives.
EcoLine® is VOC free, non-flammable, and biodegradable. Based on Cortec's
expertise in advanced green chemistry, the enhanced EcoLine® Rust
Preventative carries a health rating of 1, a flammability rating of 1, and a
reactivity rating of 0.

EcoLine® Long-Term Rust Preventive comes in a ready-to-use 16 oz bottle -
no mixing or diluting is required. The product is easily applied by hand spray,
dip, brush, or conventional spray equipment.
