The success of Cortec® VpCI® packaging lies in its environmentally friendly Vapor-phase Corrosion Inhibitor Technology. This technology creates a protective environment inside each VpCI® package. Application is easy, typically with little or no surface preparation needed. Special Vapor-phase Corrosion Inhibitors embedded in VpCI® packaging travel through the air to form an invisible protective shield on all accessible metal surfaces inside the enclosed package. This VpCI® shield does not alter metal properties. Instead, it blocks the ability of oxygen, moisture, and other corrosive elements to attack the metal surface and make it rust. After the metal part is taken out of the package, the VpCI® molecules float away, and the metal components, machinery, or products are ready for immediate use, no cleaning or degreasing required.
For tiny electronic devices to tanker holds, Cortec’s VpCI® technology protects any size products - from printed circuit board components during process, stored parts to large containerised shipments.
In addition to packaging, Cortec’s wide variety of corrosion inhibiting solutions include time-tested general VpCI® and MCI® Technology for use in effectively any industry that battles rust.
THE CORTEC RANGE
Cortec’s recyclable VpCI® plastic sheeting and bags are powerful, cost effective, and simple to use. They provide Total Corrosion Control for multiple metal types and come in many sizes and formats—from small ziplock bags that protect nuts and bolts, to 30 foot (9.1 m) wide heavy duty sheeting for storing giant industrial equipment outdoors. Available formats include
• Roll Stock
• Gusseted Bags
• Ziplock Bags
• Shrink Film
• Heat Sealable Baga
• Bubble Wrap
Simply wrap, shroud, or pack your products or equipment in VpCI® films and bags for continuous protection during WIP (work in progress), storage, transit, lay-up, or mothballing.
Cortec’s versatile range of VpCI® coated papers offer many renewable, recyclable, and fully-repulpable corrosion protection options in widths nearing 100 inches (2.5 m) for single item packaging, parts interleaving, and more!
VpCI® emitters provide an extra dose of Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors for small or large packages needing additional protection against corrosion during shipping or storage. By inserting one of the many different styles and sizes of VpCI® emitters into your VpCI® packaging system, users can ensure that small and large spaces are saturated with a protective corrosion inhibiting environment.
Cortec’s specialty products include unique packaging items that incorporate Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors into protective fabric, corrugated boxes, laminated barrier foil, pipe caps, woven polypropylene, and more for customized protection. These protective items can be adapted to use for uniquely shaped items or special packaging, storage, and transport circumstances.

HOW IT WORKS
2. Conditions enclosed atmosphere with a protective vapour
3. Vapour condenses on all metal surfaces
4. Ions dissolve in moisture layer (water electrolyte)
5. Protective ions are attracted to metal surfaces
6. Ions form a thin molecular protective layer at the metal surface
7. Protective layer re-heals and self-replenishes through further condensation of the vapor
