Cortec® VpCI® Paper Helps You Hit ‘Pause’ on Interrupted Projects

May 15, 2020

In metal manufacturing, time and environmental conditions can make all the difference on whether new metal parts rust before they reach the customer. While many manufacturers already have their standard procedures in place for preventing rust during the WIP cycle, storage, or shipping; much has changed with the recent pandemic. Entire operations have been interrupted, delayed, or completely stalled, leaving manufacturers with new scenarios for product finishing and delivery. Some suppliers who needed little to no rust prevention in the past (due to minimal storage and shipping time) may now be left with freshly machined components on their hands much longer than usual, raising the risk of corrosion.

Fortunately, the solution can be as simple as stocking a supply of VpCI® papers. These take up minimal space for the amount of surface area protected and do not require special corrosion inhibitor removal after use. Wrapping or interleaving parts inside CorShield® VpCI®-146 Paper keeps the metals corrosion-free and ready to ship or use at any time the demand arises. Where higher levels of moisture are a concern, manufacturers can employ EcoShield® VpCI®-144 Paper, a recyclable moisture barrier paper, to protect against moisture ingress and corrosion. Similar strategies can be used at the assembly plant for components that have already arrived but cannot yet be put together. In either case, VpCI® paper helps manufacturers, suppliers, and end users hit “pause” on interrupted projects, keeping components in good condition until they are needed again.
