The Worlds first certified 100% biodegradable, compostable corrosion inhibiting film.

Cortec’s Eco-Corr Film® contains their proprietary VpCI® Technology and provides contact, barrier, and vapour phase corrosion protection for ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

Formulations containing up to 40% bio-based content are available and can be designed to fit required properties ranging from highly elastic to semi-rigid structures. When placed in a commercial composting environment, Eco-Corr Film® will fully disintegrate within 2-3 months.

Eco-Corr® is a DIN V 54 900 and BPS Certified 100% biodegradable and compostable film utilising Cortec’s patented VpCI technology. In addition to offering 100% biodegradability, 100% compostability and VpCI technology, Eco-Corr® provides better tensile strength, tear strength and ultimate elongation than low density polyethylene films. Eco-Corr® is also heat and water stable and does not disintegrate or break apart while in use.

Eco-Corr® provides contact, barrier and Vapour phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI) protection for up to two years depending on storage conditions. Once exposed to soil or compost conditions, Eco-Corr® will disintegrate rapidly (within weeks) and completely without contaminating the soil.


The first and only 100% biodegradable, 100% compostable packaging film that provides contact, barrier and vapour corrosion inhibition
Provides multi-metal corrosion inhibitor protection
Extremely elastic
Complete replacement for non-degradable and inferior blend films
Compostable Testing under DIN V 54 900
Plant Growth Testing under RAL GZ 251
Ground Water Testing under DIN 38412 Part 30


Metal parts packaged in Eco-Corr® receive continuous protection against salt, excessive humidity, condensation, moisture, aggressive industrial atmosphere and dissimilar metal corrosion. The Vapour phase Corrosion Inhibitors vaporise and then condense on all metal surfaces in the enclosed package. VpCI reaches every area of your part, protecting its exterior as well as hard to reach interior surfaces. You get complete product protection during storage as well as during domestic and overseas shipments, virtually eliminating any rust claims.

Once the film is no longer needed, Eco-Corr® can be composted and will degrade into carbon dioxide and water within weeks, certified under BPS guidelines.


For shipping and storage applications, Eco-Corr® is a great alternative to conventional polyethylene films. Eco-Corr® has a shelf life of up to two years, when sealed in original packaging.

Once removed and put to use, Eco-Corr® will remain effective with regard to mechanical strength until film is placed in contact with material containing microorganisms, such as certain types of waste, soil, and compost. Under these conditions, 100% disintegration will occur within a few weeks with no residual contamination of the soil, certified under RAL GZ 251 and DIN V 54 900.
