Corrosion inhibitor technology specialist Cortec Corporation has launched the latest version of its VpCI 126 Blue patented, high technology films and bags – which now feature a higher content of recycled resin – for the protection of products and parts made from a range of different metals.
According to the Minnesota, USA-based company, VcPI 126 Blue utilises the latest film technology to protect metal items from all types of corrosion including rust, tarnish, stains, white rust and oxidation for “up to 5 years”, replacing potentially hazardous conventional rust preventatives such as oils and desiccants.
“By using VpCI 126 Blue the customer gains a safe and economical solution, considering that VpCI 126 Blue also eliminates all the degreasing or coating removal required in the past,” Cortec Corporation says.
Metal parts packaged in VpCI126 Blue receive “continuous protection” against salt, excessive humidity, condensation, moisture, aggressive industrial atmospheres and dissimilar metal corrosion.
VpCI 126 Blue contains no free amines, phosphates or halogen-based materials and is non-toxic.
The Cortec laboratories formulated an “environmentally improved” version of VpCI 126 films, manufactured using a state of the art reprocessing line and using recycled content including internal scrap, to improve the energy efficiency and reduce waste in the regranulation process.
“This new eco concept of films and bags containing high recycled content enables rational use of resources and energy savings while the product still maintains excellent chemical, mechanical and corrosion inhibiting properties,” the company says.
Custom blends of VpCI 126 Blue can offer the exact properties required by customers, such as improved puncture resistance or tear strength.
