Description:
BioPad® is a unique flexible corrosion inhibiting device constructed from 100% biobased non-woven material, resulting in a finished good containing 66% biobased content. BioPad® provides an eco-friendly sustainable packaging option for corrosion inhibition and has been awarded USDA BioPreferredSM designation (www.biopreferred.gov). BioPad® provides up to two times as much corrosion inhibiting action as related foam products. Not only is BioPad® biobased, but its high VpCI® concentration in combination with its thin design, results in material reduction by up to 94% in comparison to similar polyurethane foam emitting devices.BioPad® is easy to use. Simply placing the correct size BioPad® into your package will allow metal items to be protected. Parts protected with BioPad® are always ready for use; no degreasing or coating removal is required, just remove item from package and put to use.
Package:Sizes are available upon request.

Description: CorrTainer® is a brand of VpCI® corrugated boxes. The inside of the box is coated with Cortec’s Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor and a barrier coating which integrates safe, effective, multi-metal corrosion protection. CorrTainer® is fully recyclable and repulpable. Does not contain nitrites, phosphates, silicates, or banned or restricted substances per RoHS and similar regulations. In many cases, CorrTainer® eliminates the need for secondary packaging, is user friendly, and cost effective.
Application: CorrTainer is most frequently used by customers that are shipping single-use packs of spare parts such as automotive brakes, clutches, or similar equipment. In this situation, CorrTainer eliminates the need for inserting internal packaging such as polyethylene bags or paper wraps.
CorrTainer has proven highly effective at preserving multipacks of small items such as bearings, tools, bolts, and similar items.
CorrTainer also works well in bulk or large dimension boxes when used with VpCI interleaver materials for export and storage of components ranging from rough castings to high-end multi-metal telecommunications equipment. In this type of situation, customers often use VpCI interleaver materials in combination with a box/crate liner from VpCI impregnated plastic. Using CorrTainer eliminates the need for the box/crate liner.
In addition to boxes, CorrTainer is available in cut sheets and bulk sheets for international shipment efficiency or box converting. CorrTainer sheets are also available with coating on both sides.

Description:
EcoDevice® is a unique biobased VpCI® emitting device constructed from 100% biobased fibers providing an ecofriendly and sustainable option for corrosion protection. These devices are designed to provide corrosion protection for small enclosures such as: tool boxes, control panels, electrical cabinets, instruments and other electronic / electrical enclosures. Each individual EcoDevice® protects up to 42 L (1.5 ft3).
Application:
EcoDevice is simple and easy to install. The devices should be installed as early as possible, preferably during manufacturing or assembly, to avoid the onset of corrosion. Simply select a space within any enclosure where corrosion protection would be beneficial. Verify that the surface on which the device will be installed is clean and free of debris. Peel off the release liner from the back of the device and affix it to the clean surface. For volumes greater than 42 L (1.5 ft3) use more than one device or consult a Cortec representative for product recommendation. Each device will provide corrosion protection up to 2 years from installation; however, if the enclosure is not airtight or if the access doors are opened frequently, replace the EcoDevice more often.
Protection:
42 L (1.5 ft3) per device
Package:
50 individually wrapped devices per
