The interrupted global supply chain has been a big topic in the news for several months as the pandemic has had a domino effect, short-circuiting the global supply of goods from one nation to another. Even as more manufacturers open up, it will take time for all supply and demand forces to catch up with each other. In the middle of these challenges, Cortec® is here so suppliers and assemblers of metal parts have one less thing to worry about: corrosion. Cortec® VpCI® protection gives manufacturers a buffer to overlap the gaps in the supply and demand chain where production, assembly, and end use have not caught up with each other. Suppliers who have automotive or electronic components or finished goods ready to ship before demand has risen do not have to worry about corrosion due to extended storage or inadequate storage facilities. Cortec’s protective materials are simple and versatile, allowing goods to be easily stored, shipped, and used on demand with minimal effort.
Protection can be as easy as slipping a BioPad® into each box of auto parts that would normally reach its destination in a day but needs to be protected in the warehouse for a few weeks or months. It may mean slipping an electronics PCB into a VpCI®-125 Top-Seal Bag for combined corrosion and ESD protection, lining crates of castings with VpCI®-126 Film and interleaving with VpCI®-146 Paper, or wrapping entire pallets in Cor-Pak® VpCI® Stretch Film.
The techniques and combinations are countless, but they all serve a common purpose: to help manufacturers deal with the global supply chain backup by taking care of the insidious problem of rust that could otherwise ruin delayed shipments.
