Specialist manufacturer of corrosion protection products, EcoCortec, has expanded its Croatian facility in order to increase its capacity. EcoCortec has increased its capacity to over 1 milion high quality VpCI bags per day as a result.
Having installed a high tech converting line, EcoCortec can convert more than a million heat sealable and ziplock bags into high quality VpCI bags per day. This makes the company the biggest producer of anticorrosion resealable bags in Europe. The new converting line and thermal transfer printing capabilities also enable EcoCortec to produce short runs of the patented EcoShield VpCI-226 and Corrshield VpCI-126 heat sealable and ziplock bags. The company is also capable of producing bags on rolls in-line and off-line, including EU pallet covers.
These films protect metal parts from all types of corrosion including rust, tarnish, stains, white rust and oxidation for up to 5 years. They replace conventional rust preventatives and enable significant cost savings. EcoShield VpCI-226 Film and Bags are made with a specialised formula to be 100% nitrite free, do not contain phosphates, or halogen-based materials, and are non-toxic and recyclable.
In light of the growing number of low quality products on the market today, EcoCortec is also focusing on brand protection. The new plant offers custom printing at no cost in order to provide corrosion, ESD and brand protection aimed to prevent counterfeit products entering the EU market.
Acxcording to the company, EcoCortec’s new high technology packaging enables lower economic costs and a long term revenue source. Enhanced printing capabilities with EcoCortec's proprietary films and papers permit OEM branding while consistently retaining the packaging’s protective capabilities. EcoCortec's brand packaging speeds logistics with shipping, receiving and processing through customs. To meet recycling import/export standards, the environmentally friendly packaging is available in recyclable and degradable materials.
The EcoCortec plant is located in the war affected Baranja region of Croatia. This has been designated an EU Zone of Special National Interest, enabling the plant to become a low cost producer capable of beating Asian suppliers in both quality and cost.
