It is not uncommon for auto mechanics to receive replacement parts wrapped in Cortec VCI/VpCI paper. That is because Cortec’s top-quality VCI/VpCI paper acts like an insurance policy to keep auto components in as-new condition during shipment through uncontrolled environments that could incite corrosion. Although Cortec has many specialty VCI/VpCI papers, a good place to start for effective multi-metal corrosion protection is Cortec’s all-purpose VCI/VpCI paper: CorShield VpCI-146.
CorShield VpCI-146 emits vapour phase corrosion inhibitors (VCIs/VpCIs) that form a protective molecular layer on metal surfaces within the package. The VCI/VpCI molecules provide protection against aggressive conditions including humidity, SO2, H2S, and dissimilar metals. In addition, CorShield VpCI-146 now offers double-sided protection (it does not matter which side is facing the metal) and conforms readily to the shape of the metal part for easier wrapping.
CorShield VpCI-146 is excellent for shipping auto parts. It eliminates the need to apply and remove greasy rust preventatives, thereby cutting out significant labor and cleanup or disposal issues. Suppliers can quickly wrap the parts, drop them into a package, and send them off to the user with an added layer of corrosion protection. Another key benefit is that CorShield VpCI-146 is non-hazardous to use. It does not contain nitrites, phosphates, or silicates. It is made from 100 per cent recycled content paper and can simply be thrown into the recycling bin after use.
CorShield VpCI-146 paper can also be combined with other packaging materials to design a comprehensive VCI/VpCI packaging solution for large projects. For example, CorShield VpCI-146 paper can be placed between stacked brake components before stretch wrapping (a cost-effective alternative to an oily rust preventative that had failed to prevent rust spots). Interleaving semi-assembled motorcycle parts with CorShield VpCI-146 paper in conjunction with a VpCI-126 box liner and VpCI-132 foam emitters ensure corrosion-free global shipment. CorShield VpCI-146 can be wrapped around truck axel spindles while using VpCI-126 for axel ring faces and shrouds to transport them from India to New York.
There are many cases in which automakers and suppliers stand to benefit from the additional layer of protection and peace of mind provided by CorShield VpCI-146. Thanks to its non-hazardous nature, recyclability, and high QC standards for every batch, CorShield VpCI-146 is the top-quality VCI/VpCI paper on the market for protecting auto parts from corrosion.
Headquartered in St. Paul (Minnesota, USA), Cortec Corporation is the global leader in innovative, environmentally responsible VpCI and MCI corrosion control technologies for packaging, metalworking, construction, electronics, water treatment, oil & gas, and other industries.
