Cortec® Packages EcoAir® Biobased CLP in Environmentally Friendly Spray Cans

EcoAir® Biobased CLP contains 89% USDA certified biobased content and provides excellent penetrating, lubricating, and rust preventing action

Male hands cleaning and oiling a bicycle chain and gear with oil sprayCLP (clean, lubricate, protect) products are traditionally made of hazardous mineral oils and other petro-based solvents. Cortec’s EcoAir® Biobased CLP offers an excellent environmentally friendly alternative in the form of EcoAir® Biobased CLP, a biobased product in an air-powered spray can.

Utilizing a canola oil base, EcoAir® Biobased CLP contains 89% USDA certified biobased content. It provides excellent penetrating, lubricating, and rust preventing action for industrial, shop, and home use. It can be used for many functions such as loosening rusted parts and protecting equipment components from wear and corrosion. EcoAir® Biobased CLP leaves behind a very persistent layer that resists corrosion for up to 24 months. If needed, the layer is easy to remove with common detergents.

For ease of application and added environmental friendliness, Cortec® has packaged its biobased CLP fluid in an air-powered spray can that dispenses the lubricant without the use of flammable or ozone depleting propellants. EcoAir® Biobased CLP can be sprayed in any direction, even upside down. Once the product is fully dispensed, the empty can is recyclable.*

EcoAir® Biobased CLP has many practical uses for MRO (maintenance, repair, and operation) around the shop or home in order to perform its clean, lubricate, and protect functions:

  • Clean – Loosens and removes dirt and grime
  • Lubricate

o Works as an excellent penetrant and lubricant
o Loosens frozen and rusted bolts and other components
o Extends life of machine parts by reducing friction and wear

  • Closeup view of a chainsaw bar and cutting chain.Protect – Provides multi-metal corrosion protection

EcoAir® Biobased CLP can be sprayed on carbon steel, galvanized steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and aluminum alloys. Typical applications include

  • In-plant machining
  • Bar and chain oiling
  • Flange lubrication
  • Lock and hinge maintenance
  • Mold release

EcoAir® Biobased CLP is freeze stable and comes packaged in 10 ounce net weight (284 g) recyclable steel cans, 12 cans per carton.
