Packaging protects against corrosion during shipping

Cortec’s VpCI packaging solutions use vapor phase corrosion inhibiting technology to safeguard metal components during shipping when extreme humidity changes can put metals at risk for corrosion. During the export journey, metal parts need corrosion protection from extreme environmental conditions and humidity swings. Electronics and items like expensive high tech medical diagnostic equipment such as MRIs or ultrasounds are  devices that could benefit from corrosion protection.

Cortec’s VpCI packaging suite avoids the downsides of many traditional corrosion protection methods as VpCI molecules incorporated into a packaging material work by evaporating into the air and forming a protective molecular layer on all metal surfaces inside an enclosed package. When the component reaches its destination, it can simply be unwrapped and used immediately without additional cleaning or degreasing. This is unlike many traditional methods, such as those in the auto industry, where parts are often dipped in petroleum-based rust preventatives that require cleaning and proper disposal before use of the part. In contrast to these commonly hazardous materials, VpCI packaging typically is fully recyclable, fully repulpable (for most VpCI papers), and non-toxic to use.

Cortec’s VpCI packaging suite offers the flexibility of many shapes, sizes, and formats to suit specific needs. For those shipping sensitive electronic components, Cortec’s EcoSonic ESD Paper powered by Nano VpCI provides both corrosion and electrostatic discharge protection. When extra moisture protection is the concern, EcoShield VpCI-144 Super Barrier Paper serves as a recyclable alternative to polyethylene and waxed papers.
