Cortec’s versatile range of VCI 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!
Our VCI treated paper is coated with proprietary Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors for superior corrosion protection of both ferrous and non-ferrous metal. Made from high quality neutral natural kraft paper, these paper products do not contain fluorochemicals, nitrites, phosphates, silicones, chromates, or other heavy metals. Cortec® VCI papers are effective against aggressive environments including humidity, SO2, and H2S.
Cortec® multi-metal VCI paper eliminates the need to inventory a variety of papers for each type of metal you need to protect. They also prevent package contamination by utilizing high quality neutral/natural kraft paper. Most VCI papers are fully recyclable and repulpable.
Cortec® VCI papers are simple to use: there are no chemical concentrations to calculate or application systems to maintain. Simply wrap or interleave your metal parts in VCI wrapping paper and fold the edges together so there is no free airflow. Use adhesive tape as needed to hold paper folds in place. VCI molecules in the paper coating vaporize and condense in a protective molecular layer on the surfaces of metal enclosed inside the VCI packaging paper. When components are removed from the paper, the VCI molecules naturally float away from the metal, leaving behind a dry and ready-to-use surface.
Cortec® VCI papers include special varieties such as VCI creped paper, reinforced paper, grease resistant paper, and ESD paper. In addition, our fully recyclable/repulpable moisture barrier papers offer excellent alternatives to polyethylene and wax papers. Paper coated with our water-based barrier coatings have displayed moisture barrier properties competitive to those of traditional wax or polyethylene coated moisture barrier papers, with the advantage of being more environmentally friendly and easier to dispose.
