Cortec’s air powered technology eliminates hazardous propellants

As restrictions and regulations tighten on the use of aerosol products, Cortec® Corporation offers an effective alternative to hazardous hydrocarbon-based aerosols. Cortec’s EcoAir® products are water-based, and powered by compressed air as opposed to traditional chemical propellants; eliminating hazardous chemical delivery systems and preserving your health and the environment.

The products are contained in a Mylar pouch, called EcoPouch™, inside a fully recyclable aluminum container. This type of powered spray affords several significant advantages over traditional aerosol sprays: EcoAir® has no innate harmful, hazardous, or polluting characteristics, is non-flammable, and enables the use of products rated for their biodegradability and nonpolluting characteristics. In old spray systems, the chemical used was altered by the propellant carrier. This disallowed the use of many biodegradable and water based formulations. EcoAir® spray technology lets the chemical formulation remain in pure form without being mixed, thereby guaranteeing that the product you are spraying works exactly how it should.

Since EcoAir® products are powered by compressed air, they are much less volatile and can be used instead of aerosols where shipping, storage, and application restrictions apply.

In addition to being non-flammable, Cortec’s EcoAir® products are biodegradable, environmentally friendly, minimize waste disposal, and are safe to use. An EcoAir® container can be disposed of like a regular aluminum can, while there are restrictions and associated costs with the disposal of aerosol cans.  The products have a very mild scent, unlike the harsh fumes from traditional aerosols. This allows the products to be used in locations and applications where aerosols cannot. Because of low environmental impact, EcoAir® may be used in a variety of marine, naval, and eco-sensitive applications.

During application, EcoAir® provides a superior powered spray mist. Unlike hand pump sprays, EcoAir® offers a uniformly dispersed pattern over sustained and short burst application. EcoAir® products spray equally from any angle, even upside down; so the user can spray underneath objects or hard to reach recessed areas. EcoAir® products are available in a variety of water-based, non-toxic cleaner, and anti-corrosion formulations.
