Cortec Corp

Cortec Corp manufactures environmentally friendly vapor phase corrosion inhibitors.

Reduce: Reducing waste generated by buying/driving less or buying products that use biodegradable packaging made from sustainable resources is the best way to be environmentally friendly.

Reuse:

Reusing items that would otherwise become waste is another great way to be environmentally friendly. Many glass, metal, plastic, and wood products can be reused many times.

Recycle:

Recycling items that would otherwise be thrown in the trash is easier than ever. Most cities and businesses have collection sites that are free for you to use.

A great thing about Cortec is that many of our products are much friendlier alternatives than customers have had in the past for corrosion inhibition. Instead of using petroleum based oils, they can use our products based on vegetable oils naturally found growing in our environment. Also, we have many waterbased alternatives as well as biodegradable products.

Supplier Categories: 
Our Anti-Skid Liner Board is designed to prevent slippage of cases, cartons, and bags up to a twenty degree slide angle depending on application and type of product being stacked.
