Cortec® Leads Industry with New VCI Paper Perf Capabilities up to 48” Wide!

June 15, 2021

Perforated paper on a roll combines the best of two worlds—the ease of dispensing paper from a roll while tearing off a precut size. Cortec® is proud to be the first in the industry to offer this capability on a widespread basis for Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibiting paper up to 48 inches (122 cm) wide, thanks to new perforation capabilities at Cortec® Coated Products (CCP) in Eau Claire, Wisconsin!

For several years, Cortec® has had the dream of offering widewidth VpCI® Paper perforated on a roll for the convenience and efficiency of customers whose processes are particularly suited to this format. After intensive trial and error on specially designed equipment, CCP has finally brought this dream to reality. The recently perfected equipment is able to perforate 30#, 35#, 40#, an 60# CorShield® VpCI®-146 Paper into custom-sized pieces 24 to 72 inches (61-183 cm) long and 12 to 48 inches (30.5-122 cm) wide. This greatly expands Cortec’s previous perforation capabilities of 12 x 12 inches (30.5 cm x 30.5 cm) minimum and 18 x 36 inches (45.7 x 91.4 cm) maximum so that manufacturers can now tear off pieces of CorShield® VpCI®-146 Paper big enough to line pallets or use in other large-scale applications.

Cortec® is eager to make these new capabilities available to customers who, depending on their specific processes, will find it much more convenient to pull precut pieces of CorShield® VpCI®- 146 Paper off a roll instead of wasting extra time to take individual sheets out of a box or cut them off a roll whenever a new piece is needed. Using rolls of perforated CorShield® VpCI®-146 Paper can also improve safety and reduce paper waste by eliminating the need to use a blade or utility knife or trim off excess on pieces cut too large because of guesswork.

Whether an enterprise follows Six Sigma, 5S Lean Methodology, or its own particular process, Cortec’s new perforation capabilities are a great option to consider when seeking to improve the efficiency, convenience, and safety of one’s anticorrosion packaging system.
