How Does Cortec® VpCI® Technology Work in Packaging Applications?

How Cortec VCI Works chart

The success of Cortec® VpCI® packaging lies in its environmentally friendly Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor Technology. This technology creates a protective environment inside each VpCI® package. Application is easy, typically with little or no surface preparation needed. Special Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors embedded in VpCI® packaging travel through the air to form an invisible protective shield on all accessible metal surfaces inside the enclosed package. This VpCI® shield does not alter metal properties. Instead, it blocks the ability of oxygen, moisture, and other corrosive elements to attack the metal surface and make it rust. After the metal part is taken out of the package, the VpCI® molecules float away, and the metal components, machinery, or products are ready for immediate use, no cleaning or degreasing required.
