Cor-Pak VpCI Stretch Film Fights Corrosion While Keeping Packages in Place

Manufacturers and shippers can add corrosion protection to their current packaging process by using Cor-Pak® VpCI® Stretch Film (Hand Wrap).  Cor-Pak VpCI Stretch Film serves the same purpose as normal stretch film but also contains Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors that protect metals from corrosion. This is especially important for metal components being prepared for export shipment in uncontrolled environments where fluctuating temperatures and humidity could easily cause condensation corrosion. Cor-Pak VpCI Stretch Film can help equipment reach customers in good condition and maintain a positive company image for manufacturers.

The combination of polyethylene resins enhanced with VpCI Technology makes Cor-Pak VpCI Stretch Film the most advanced VCI stretch film available on the market today for corrosion protection of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. This film is coextruded using state-of-the-art resins, offering superior strength and stretch characteristics. CorPak VpCI Stretch Film delivers puncture resistance and load holding, which allows a user to down-gauge, contain aggressive loads, and produce a better package at reduced cost. The self-adhering film bonds to each layer for added strength.

CorPak VpCI Stretch Film offers multi-metal corrosion inhibiting properties for protection of

  • Aluminum
  • Galvanized Steel
  • Carbon Steel
  • Silicon Steel
  • Stainless Steel
  • Copper
  • Brass
  • Cast Iron

Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors in the stretch film do not leave residue, allowing immediate use of protected parts with no additional cleaning required.

Cor-Pak VpCI Stretch Film does not require users to significantly change their packaging process. This was reportedly important for a manufacturer of heat exchangers who was having trouble with corrosion on equipment being shipped overseas.

Cor-Pak® VpCI® Stretch Film has also been used to

  • Replace stretch wrap and desiccants to wrap copper tubes for overseas shipment;
  • Wrap wire rolls for six months of indoor storage in extremely corrosive conditions; and
  • Protect protruding parts of mobile compressor units as part of a total corrosion solution for up to one year of storage and transit.
