Cor-Pak® VpCI™ Skin Film is the ultimate in skin film for retail showroom display of metal products. Cor- Pak® VpCI™ Skin Film utilizes the latest surlyn based resin in combination with Cortec’s patented VpCI™ technology providing a two year corrosion free life with a crystal clear appearance. These two technologies allow Cor-Pak® VpCI™ Skin Film to have the clarity and corrosion inhibition necessary for even the most extreme packaging conditions.
Once packaged, Cor-Pak® VpCI™ Skin Film releases Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors (VpCIs™) that create a monomolecular layer of protection on the surface of the metal. Additionally, the superior strength of Cor- Pak® VpCI™ Skin Film provides barrier and mechanical protection while remaining suitable for retail or end-user display.
Metal parts protected with Cor-Pak® VpCI™ Skin Film are easily inspected during shipment and storage. Cleaning, rust removal and other additional steps are not required once the part is removed from the packaging, even if the parts need to be welded, soldered or painted. Cor-Pak® VpCI™ Skin Film leaves the exposed metal surfaces clean and contaminant free.
Cor-Pak® VpCI™ Skin Film can be applied with standard skin packaging equipment and typically provides corrosion protection for up to two years.
Application: Use Cor-Pak® VpCITM Skin Film for skin packaging (visual carded packaging). The part being packaged becomes the mold over which the heated plastic film or “skin” is drawn by vacuum and heat-sealed to a paperboard card, providing excellent visibility. Skin film is typically used for industrial packaging and for point of purchase packaging and other items to be displayed. The film is excellent for packaging hardware, parts in storage, applications where multiple parts need to be packaged together, door locks, antennae, hand tools, kitchen implements, plumbing accessories, screwdrivers, fasteners, drill bits, sawblades and more.
