Cortec Corrosion Inhibiting Paper Protects Variety of Metals

Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Cortec's (St. Paul, Minn., USA) VpCI®-149 is a new corrosion inhibiting paper for the protection of a wide variety of metals. This environmentally safe, non-toxic paper is formulated for extra protection of sensitive metals such as copper, aluminum, and cast iron. Manufactured using a natural kraft paper, the coating provides a soft and conformable feel to the paper, making it easy to use when individually wrapping parts. The strong vapor phase protection makes it a great product for interleaving and protecting void spaces, the company notes.

Since it is not a saturated paper, VpCI-149 will not tear like many other VCI papers. It is made from neutral, natural kraft paper, without the use of chlorine or other chemical bleaching, which eliminates package contamination. The fully recyclable and repulpable paper does not contain nitrites, phosphates, silicones, chromates, or other heavy metals. The VpCI coating on the paper vaporizes, reaching all metal surfaces to provide corrosion protection.

VpCI-149 can be used for a variety of applications such as protection of products for storage and shipment in several ways: the 149 kraft wrap for single item packaging or interleaving, end closures for shipping tubes, insert strips for recessed areas in large packages, and as sheet liners or separators between products.
