Cortec introduces CorShield VpCI-146 Creped Paper powered by Nano VpCI—a premium corrosion inhibiting paper that is environmentally safe, non-toxic, biodegradable, and does not contain nitrites, phosphates, or silicates. CorShield VpCI-146 Creped Paper utilizes Cortec’s patented Vapor-phase Corrosion Inhibiting (VpCI) technology to provide a revolutionary way to protect metals in enclosed packages.

CorShield VpCI-146 Creped Paper is made from the highest quality Neutral Natural Kraft (NNK) paper without any chemical bleaching and is fully recyclable and repulpable. Without any chemical concentrations to calculate or a chemical tank or application system to maintain, CorShield VpCI-146 Creped Paper is easy to use. Once a product is wrapped in the creped paper, the VpCI technology goes to work to protect it from corrosion while the structure of the paper provides protection from damage during transportation by delicately cradling the product.

The VpCI coating on the creped paper vaporizes to reach all metal surface areas and provides complete corrosion protection. The unique Cortec VpCI technology forms a very thin and effective protective layer that does not alter the appearance of products or require removal before further processing or use. The protective layer does not influence properties of most sensitive electrical parts, such as conductivity and resistance. Parts protected with CorShield VpCI-146 Creped Paper can be painted, welded, and soldered.

This bio-based, sustainable, and renewable Creped Paper can be used to protect products for storage and shipment in a variety of ways: single item packaging, interleaving; end closures for shipping tubes; inserting strips for recessed areas in large packages; and as sheet liners or separators between products. It is particularly suitable for the bearing industry as CorShield VpCI-146 Creped Paper offers cushioning, multi-metal corrosion protection, and creates the “pooling” effect for RP oils. CorShield VpCI-146 Creped Paper protects carbon steel, stainless steel, galvanized steel, cast iron, aluminum alloys, copper, brass, and solder.

Applications include:

  • Bearing protection during storage and shipment
  • Metal producing: coils, wire reels, plate, bar, etc.
  • Metal forging and die casting: raw and machined forgings and castings
  • Metalworking: stamping, sheet metal work, springs, bearings, fasteners, tube, pipe, nails, etc.
  • Finished products: engines, machinery, equipment, tools, hardware, appliances, instruments, motors, etc.
  • Electrical and electronic components, controls, etc.

Cortec’s CorShield VpCI-146 Creped Paper conforms to NACE Standard RP0487-2000 and is RoHS compliant.
