Finding rust on steel bars and coils packaged in reinforced corrosion inhibiting paper is a fact of life for many in the steel industry.
This should not be the case when top quality corrosion protection and durability is available with Cortec’s premium CorShield® VpCI®-146 Reinforced Paper. Most reinforced corrosion inhibiting papers do not pair paper strength with corrosion protection, Cortec’s superior Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibiting (VpCI®) paper offers a different experience for both ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
CorShield® VpCI®-146 Reinforced Paper is used in packaging metals or finished goods with pointed, oddly shaped, or sharp edges that would normally puncture non-reinforced papers. It combines excellent tear strength with reliable corrosion protection through innovative VpCI® Technology.
Cortec®, the global leader in VpCI® technology, has interacted with key industry players during its thirty-plus years in the business of developing premium quality VpCI® papers. Cortec’s patented VpCI® Technology has revolutionized the way metals are protected in an enclosed package. There are no chemical concentrations to calculate and no chemical tanks or application systems to maintain. Simply wrap your product in the paper, fold the edges together, and tape the paper in place as needed. The VpCI® coating on the paper vaporizes and reaches all metal surfaces to provide complete corrosion protection. The unique inhibiting action of VpCI® molecules forms a very thin and very effective protective layer that does not alter the appearance of products or require removal upon opening the package.
The protection of CorShield® VpCI®-146 Reinforced Paper
CorShield® VpCI®-146 Reinforced Paper provides superior corrosion protection for both ferrous and non-ferrous metals, eliminating the need to stock a variety of papers for all the different types of metals and alloys that need protection. Parts protected with CorShield® VpCI®-146 Reinforced Paper can be painted, welded, and soldered. The protective layer does not influence physical properties of most sensitive electrical components, including conductivity and resistance.
The applications for CorShield® VpCI®-146 Reinforced Paper are countless. In the metal industry, it is an excellent choice for protecting sharp coils, wire reels, heavy plate, and bars. It can be used to wrap raw and machined forgings and castings, stampings, sheet metal work, springs, bearings, fasteners, tubes, pipes, and nails. CorShield® VpCI®-146 Reinforced Paper is also good for protecting finished products such as engines, machinery, tools, hardware, appliances, instruments, motors, electrical and electronic components and controls.
