Counter costs of metal corrosion with this technology

By Chemical Engineering |

Cortec

Cortec



This company’s Vapor-phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI) Technology turns basic packaging materials like paper, cardboard boxes and plastic bags into corrosion-inhibiting tools that protect by vapor phase action without the direct application of a rust preventative or coating to the metal. One special means for creating effective corrosion inhibiting packaging is CorShield 352 coating for paper and corrugated cardboard, which is powered by Nano VpCI, a coating that contains multi-metal Vapor-phase Corrosion Inhibitors. Applied to normal Kraft paper or linerboard, CorShield 352 Coating creates an excellent protective material for interleaving or individually packaging metal parts. When metal articles are enclosed within flexible packaging or corrugated boxes coated with CorShield 352, protective molecules from the VpCI coating vaporize off the packaging material to provide complete corrosion protection to enclosed metals. — Cortec Corp., St. Paul, Minn.
