Cortec EcoAir corrosion protection

EcoAir is a complete line of unique, compressed-air powered, water-based spray can corrosion protection products. These spray cans are a complete bio-based replacement for expensive and hazardous chemical propellants. They attack the toughest maintenance duties while being completely safe for the environment.

A four-layer EcoPouch is inserted into a can, which is then pressurized. The EcoPouch is filled with the liquid and as the valve is depressed the surrounding pressure expels the bag’s internal fluids until the product is used up.

EcoAir does not contain chemical propellants, CFCs or HCFCs that affect the atmosphere, the ozone layer, or the environment; they are formulated with biodegradable, nonpolluting ingredients and eliminate waste disposal cost. They are non-flammable. EcoAir products are able to spray in any direction – even upside down and are safe to ship and store.

On December 18, 2017, the United States Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) implemented its Electronic Logging Device and Hours of Service mandate. The rule requires that motor carriers and drivers retain supporting documents to verify their driving hours. But, the biggest change that the rule instituted is requiring drivers track their hours of service (HOS) using an electronic logging device (ELD).

Jamie Davis, star of the international hit television show “Highway Thru Hell,” recently visited Mack Trucks’ Lehigh Valley Operations in Macungie, Pennsylvania, where all Mack truck models for North America and export are assembled. Davis followed his Mack Anthem model through the assembly process, even lending a hand to help install the iconic Mack Bulldog. Davis’ Discovery Channel film crew captured the day’s events, which will be featured during the upcoming seventh season of “Highway Thru Hell.”

"Highway Thru Hell" features Jamie Davis Motor Truck, Davis' legendary heavy truck rescue company, as they navigate the extreme roads and relentless weather of Canada's Rocky Mountains.
