VpCI Technology

Cortec Corporation invented Vapor Phase Corrosion Inhibitors. CGSI is inventing the preservation industry.


Combining the science of materials with the art of application, we tackle the constant, indiscriminate, and costly enemy of corrosion.


Traditional anti-corrosion methods are messy, expensive, and can be hazardous to personnel and the environment. Too often, they are ineffective.

Cortec’s Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI®) technology represents a breakthrough solution in corrosion prevention. Our VpCI® products protect metals with a chemically adsorbed molecular layer that provides multi-metal corrosion protection. The coverage is complete – all surfaces, crevices, cavities, and other inaccessible void areas receive total protection. The VpCI® barrier is self-replenishing, even for packaging that’s repeatedly opened; and typically protects for up to 24 months. The industry-proven result is exceptional product protection without the labor-intensive clean-up required with conventional oil coatings or other inhibiting products; even for previously corroded, painted, or coated surfaces.

We deliver sustainable world class solutions for our customers that generate long term value. 


Our core values reflect our commitment to customers, employees and the communities in which we work and live.
