VpCI® Gusset Bags
Replace Silica Gel and Elbow Grease
For high value-added metal
components, products and machinery, Cortec's new VpCITM
Gusset Bags are replacing one of the most popular forms
of corrosion protection, silica gel and elbow grease.
With this new, high density barrier bag the user simply
places the product in the bag and seals it with a twist
tie, crimp, or heat seal. Metal products placed in a
Cortec® VCI Gusset Bag can be perfectly
clean. No other corrosion protection is required. Metal
is protected against corrosion for up to 24 months in
storage, on the shelf, or even export shipment overseas
by ship. When ready for use, products are easily removed
from the bag and are ready for immediate use. No dusting,
cleaning or degreasing is needed.
Cortec VCI Gusset Bags come
in a variety of convenient sizes to easily handle items
such as bins of small electronic components or small
office machines to large shafts, or custom sizes for
truck engines and printing presses. The bags translucent
barrier allow easy see-through for fast product identification
and inspection without opening the bag.
The Cortec bags eliminate
the failure of silica gel in preventing rust from over
saturation in high humidity and aggressive atmospheres.
Cortec® VpCITM technology
protects against both humidity as well as corrosive
contaminants and vapors that easily penetrate typical
poly bags during longer term conditions. The Cortec
technology provides complete protection to both ferrous
and non-ferrous metals. The unique Cortec VpCI®action
even sets-up a thin protective film in recessed areas,
voids, and other hard-to-reach areas. The bags eliminate
the need for any extra labor or material protection
such as adding oils or grease, or extracting excess
air from the bag. The new bags get rid of the "elbow"
grease from extra labor and costs, while virtually eliminating
rust claims and product returns.
Unlike silica gel and polyethylene
or paper barrier bags which require landfill disposal
or special handling, Cortec VCI Gusset Bags are bio-friendly,
non-toxic and can be recycled. Their convenient and
simple to use form requires no special training of personnel
for use. In addition, no special safety equipment is
needed when working with Cortec VCI Gusset Bags.
