Cortec Corporation is pleased to announce the development of its latest VCI film and bag technology: CorShield VpCI-220E. The new formula not only offers improved corrosion protection but also includes 30 percent post-consumer recycled content. This is a milestone “circular economy” achievement that meets the U.S. Plastics Pact goal of reaching an average 30 percent recycled or biobased content in plastic packaging by 2025. In the EU, this target is set for the year 2030.
CorShield VpCI-220E Films and Bags combine the latest film technology with the most effective corrosion protection for metal products. Vapor phase corrosion inhibitors protect multi-metals (aluminum, carbon steel, galvanized steel, and copper) from all types of corrosion including rust, tarnish, stains, and white rust. By creating a dry protective packaging environment, CorShield VpCI-220E can replace conventional rust preventatives such as oils and desiccants, saving time and money by eliminating the degreasing or coating removal of the past. The protected part can be used immediately after unpackaging. For better EHS (environment, health, and safety) benefits, CorShield VpCI-220E does not contain amines, nitrites, nitrates, phosphates, halogen-based materials, molybdates, or chromates and is fully recyclable.
