VpCI®-386 Aluminum is a unique, water-based primer/topcoat that successfully provides protection in harsh, outdoor, unsheltered applications. The complex mixture of non-toxic, organic inhibitors and an aluminum pigment offers protection that can compete with most paints and zinc-rich primers. VpCI®-386 Aluminum is superior to many coatings with only inorganic pigments because the resistance has been improved by using a highly corrosion resistant aluminum platelet type pigment with organic corrosion inhibitors. The special combination of additives provides a composite polymer barrier that significantly retards the reaction of metal ionization and repels water. A protective film is adsorbed onto metal surfaces. It protects against corrosive electrolytes and aggressive environments, thus preventing corrosion.
Application: VpCI®-386 Aluminum can be used as a topcoat/primer. When solvent-based topcoats are applied over VpCI®-386 Aluminum, compatibility must be checked. VpCI®-386 Aluminum can also be used as a topcoat with Cortec® VpCI®-374 or VpCI®-395 as a primer.
Package: 5 gallons (19 liters) pails, 55 gallons (208 liters) drums, liquid totes and bulk.
