The answer to pipe corrosion in irrigation equipment comes in the form of Cortec’s EcoLine® AL-Corr™, a biobased corrosion inhibitor that will help to extend the service life of aluminum irrigation pipes.

EcoLine® AL-Corr™ is specifically designed to protect aluminum irrigation pipes during operation or intermittent use. It proves to be especially important during the times when irrigation pipes are sitting idle with residual moisture and plenty of air to feed the oxidation process. EcoLine® AL-Corr™ is effective as low dosages and should be added to irrigation water at a rate of 250-50 ppm.

EcoLine® AL-Corr™ contains 18% USDA certified biobased content, qualifying it as a product that falls under the mandatory federal purchasing initiative of the USDA BioPreferred Program. Cortec chose to use biodegradable ingredients in EcoLine® AL-Corr™; the ingredients used were approved for use in personal care products and food preservation. EcoLine® AL-Corr™ does not contain phosphates or nitrites, helping to reduce nutrient pollution in farm water runoff.
