Cortec achieves 30% PCR content in its new VCI film and bag formula
Source:Adsale Plastics Network    Editor:JK    Date:30.Aug.2022

Cortec Corporation develops its latest VCI film and bag technology, CorShield VpCI-220E. The new formula not only offers improved corrosion protection but also includes 30% post-consumer recycled content.


CorShield VpCI-220E Films and Bags combine new film technology with effective corrosion protection for metal products. Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors protect multi-metals (aluminum, carbon steel, galvanized steel, and copper) from all types of corrosion including rust, tarnish, stains, and white rust.


By creating a dry protective packaging environment, CorShield VpCI-220E can replace conventional rust preventatives such as oils and desiccants, saving time and money by eliminating the degreasing or coating removal of the past. The protected part can be used immediately after unpackaging.


Cortec’s newest VCI film for metals protection.

For better EHS (environment, health, and safety) benefits, CorShield VpCI-220E does not contain amines, nitrites, nitrates, phosphates, halogen-based materials, molybdates, or chromates and is fully recyclable.


For decades, Cortec has been searching for new ways to prevent corrosion while reducing environmental impact. This environmental responsibility takes many forms and addresses different aspects of the product life-cycle with the goal of creating a true circular economy where possible.


Years ago, it began adding “repro” (film scrap) back into the production of recyclable VCI films and also patented the concept of using recycled content in VCI films.


Furthermore, the company's circular economy opportunities include a VCI plastic recycling partnership in which approved partners in the U.S. and Europe can send clean used VpCI-126 Film and Bags back to Cortec or EcoCortec plants for reprocessing into new film.


While Cortec has long had the ability to incorporate pre- and post-consumer recycled content into its VCI film, the company believes that the 30% level of post-consumer recycled content is still a new achievement.
