Cortec Corp.: Stretch film
Cortec’s newly reformulated Cor-Pak® VpCI® Stretch Film provides a more efficient and cost effective corrosion protection solution for primary packaging and unitization.
This stretch wrap, produced by Cortec® Corporation and EcoCortec® (a European Subsidiary of Cortec® Corporation), is the only product in the world that offers both vapor phase and contact protection to carbon and galvanized steels, aluminum, copper, brass, zinc, and other metals. This fully recyclable film delivers added puncture resistance and load holding, allowing users to down-gauge while still containing aggressive loads and producing a better package at reduced costs.
Protective packaging is important when you're dealing with stretch film and making sure containers stay on the pallet is paramount to quality control during shipping and warehouse distribution. Stretch wrapping is the most cost-effective way to keep loads secured and Cortec’s Cor-Pak® VpCI® Stretch Film offers you everything you've been looking for in a corrosion protection and pallet wrap product rolled into one.
This Cortec® product gives you improved handling stability when forming a unit load while also providing tamper resistance, more efficient storage, and dust and moisture protection.

Eliminate the need for rust inhibiting oils by utilizing our film made from a unique blend of polyethylene resins and Cortec’s Patented VpCI® technology; coextruded on highly specialized, computer controlled equipment.
