Corrosion protection is essential to the transportation and storage of products made from ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Cortec Corporation provides a wide range of packaging materials for continuous multi-metal protection.

Continuous corrosion protectionThe 130 series of products includes flexible packaging materials that combine VpCI corrosion protection, cushioning and desiccant action, as well as excellent antistatic capabilities, enabling the elimination of expensive and hazardous rust preventatives. These multi-functional foam pads have become the global industry standard for export packaging of machinery, equipment and components, according to Cortec.

All materials used in the 130 series of products are safe for the environment and do not contain any harmful toxic compounds like nitrites and chromates. Parts protected with Cortec VpCI 130 Series foams are immediately ready for use. No degreasing or coating removal is required, and the application of these products results in weight, labour and cost savings.

Cortec’s packaging materials provide continuous multi-metal protection to metals and alloys such as steel, copper, brass, aluminum, zinc, solder and silver, protecting against humidity, condensation, galvanic corrosion and residual impurities. They perform excellently even under the aggressive conditions found in marine environments and extended storage in non-air conditioned warehouses.

VpCI-130 Series foams contain a unique combination of high and low vapor pressure VpCI. This makes them ideal for long-term protection of objects with large surface areas such as large export packages, crates and seagoing containers. The foams will not change the physical or chemical properties of electronic components.

VpCI-130 Series foams contain approximately ten times more VpCI chemical per square meter of subtrate than traditional VPI papers and other wrapping materials. This makes the protection of objects with large surface areas, such as aluminum and steel coils, possible.

VpCI-130 Series foams conform to NACE Standard TM0-2008, RP0487-2000, MIL-I-22100C and are RoHS compliant. They meet military specification MIL-PRF-81705D for static dissipative materials.
