Cortec, St. Paul, Minn., USA, has introduced its Bio Wrap® Creped premium corrosion inhibiting paper. The paper employs Cortec's Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibiting (VpCI®) technology for protecting metals in an enclosed package.

The "environmentally safe," non-toxic, biodegradable crepe paper combines multi-metal corrosion protection with the benefits of crepe paper. As a result of the creping, the tensile strength is increased and a high degree of pliancy is achieved, Cortec notes.

Bio Wrap Creped paper provides cushioning and surface protection for wrapped parts and a "pooling" effect for oiled parts. It is cost efficient and environmentally more advantageous than bubble films, packaging peanuts and other cushioning materials, the company says. The paper used in Bio Wrap does not contain any nitrites, phosphates, or silicates. It is effective against the most aggressive environments including humidity, SO2, H2S, and galvanic corrosion from dissimilar metals. It eliminates the need of a variety of papers for all of the different types of metals and alloys, the company adds.

Bio Wrap is fully recyclable and repulpable. It protects products for storage and shipment in a variety of ways—end closures for shipping tubes, insert strips for recessed areas in large packages, and as sheet liners or separators between products. Typical applications include metal producing, metal forging, die casting, metalworking, finished products, electrical and electronic components, and controls.
