Cortec Corp.: Cortec Corp.: Cortec Corp.: 100% biodegradable VCI film protects metal parts
Cortec's Eco-Corr Film® is a biobased and biodegradable film that provides contact, barrier, and patented Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI®) protection for up to 2 years.
The 100% biodegradable VCI film provides much better tensile strength, tear resistance, and ultimate elongation than low-density polyethylene (LDPE) films, according to the company. It is certified under DIN CERTCO DIN EN 13432 (Europe) and Biodegradable Products Institute ASTM D6400 (USA), is heat and water stable, and does not disintegrate or break apart while in use. Once exposed to soil or compost conditions, this product will disintegrate rapidly and completely within weeks, without contaminating the soil. It is nitrite and amine free. Metal parts packaged in Eco-Corr Film® receive continuous protection against salt, excessive humidity, condensation, moisture, aggressive industrial atmosphere, and dissimilar metal corrosion.
