  • How can Cortec Packaging products help me?
    • Corrosion is a constant, indiscriminate and costly enemy of metal parts, especially when packaged for storage and transportation. Traditional anti-corrosion methods are messy, costly, and can be hazardous to personnel and the environment. Too often, they’re ineffective as well.

      Cortec® VpCI® technology represents a breakthrough solution in corrosion prevention. Our VpCI® products protect metals with a chemically adsorbed molecular layer that provides multimetal corrosion protection. The coverage is complete – all surfaces, including crevices, cavities and other inaccessible void areas receive total protection. The VpCI® barrier is self-replenishing, even for packaging that’s repeatedly opened, and typically protects for up to 24 months.

      The industry proven result is exceptional product protection without the labor-intensive clean-up required with conventional oil coatings or other inhibiting products – even for previously corroded, painted or coated surfaces. Cortec® VpCIs® are environmentally safe, and are not based on nitrites.

      Cortec® VpCI® technology. The safety net your products and systems deserve.

  • How does VpCI work?
    • lonic Action of VpCI® Creates a Molecular, Inhibiting Layer.

      ◗ Vaporizes.
      ◗ Conditions enclosed atmosphere with a protective vapor.
      ◗ Vapor migrates to all recessed areas and cavities.
      ◗ Vapor condenses on all metal surfaces.
      ◗ Ions dissolve in moisture layer (water electrolyte).
      ◗ Protective ions are attracted to metal surfaces.
      ◗ Ions form a thin, monomolecular protective layer surface.

      From packaged products stored indoors to products located outdoors in adverse conditions, the new generation VpCI® Technology makes it more profitable to solve a corrosion problem than to ignore it.

      For example, you can:

      ◗ Bulk package automotive components in VpCI® 126 Blue® crate liners for 24 months of continuous protection

      ◗ Store service parts for 15 years in CorrLam VpCI® Barrier Laminate bags for a build-ahead program

      ◗ Install VpCI-111 emitters into telecomm equipment during installation for 24 months of protection while in service

      ◗ Preserve military assets in a readiness state for 5 years outdoors by adding VpCI® to all functional fluids and then simply wrapping in MilCorr® shrink wrap.

      ◗ By replacing an existing coolant with EcoLine Cutting Fluid, secondary RP dips can be completely eliminated because the VpCI® protection is built-in to the machining fluid itself

  • Are Cortec VpCIs safe?
    • Cortec’s formulations, using the newest chemical technology available, help alleviate your concerns in the areas of health, safety, flammability, and pollution control.

      Now you can effectively protect your metals and products against humidity and aggressive atmospheres as well as against corrosive industrial, marine, and tropical atmospheres.

  • How can VpCI products be used?
    • From packaged products stored indoors to products located outdoors in adverse conditions, the new generation VpCI® Technology makes it more profitable to solve a corrosion problem than to ignore it.

      For example, you can:

      1. Fog a heat exchanger in a few minutes and eliminate your shipping and storage corrosion problems.

      2. Protect on-site, operational electric circuitry for pennies a day.

      3. Easily spray valve flanges and stems with an outdoor coating for extended protection.

      4. Boost the protection of your lubricating oils with an additive effective for multimetal systems.These four examples show how Cortec's VpCl® Technology successfully solves problems caused by impractical conventional corrosion treatments.

  • How do Cortec products cut costs?
    • ◗ Multifunctional products.
      ◗ More effective protection.
      ◗ Efficient delivery systems that make it economical to treat hard-to-protect items.
      ◗ Easy application.
      ◗ Improved health, safety, and pollution control.
      ◗ Elimination of extra processing steps in most cases there is no need to remove the VpCI® product.
      ◗ Extended equipment life.

      Use Cortec® technology in each stage of the product’s lifecycle, starting from the production of metal stock to actual use in the field. When properly applied, Cortec's VpCl® Technology substantially cuts time and cost throughout the entire product life cycle: manufacturing, storage, shipping, and field service. Cortec's VpCl® products eliminate the extra processing steps such as cleaning, degreasing, rust removal, pickling, sandblasting, and reprotecting. You will have less re-work, fewer rejects, improved quality, reduced rust claims, and extended equipment life.
