Cortec’s interest in exploring biodegradable technology has led to the recent TÜV Austria certified industrially compostable version of Eco-Corr Film®, a commercially compostable VCI (vapor corrosion inhibitor) packaging material that does not pose an ecotoxicity threat to plant growth.
Metal parts packaged in Eco-Corr Film® receive ongoing protection against salt, excessive humidity, condensation, moisture, and aggressive industrial atmospheres. In addition to serving as a physical barrier to the elements and inhibiting corrosion on metals in direct contact with the film, Eco-Corr Film® also contains Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors that vaporize and then condense on all accessible metal surfaces within the enclosed package to interrupt the corrosion reaction between metal, oxygen, and an electrolyte. Eco-Corr Film® meets German TL-8135-002 and NACE TM0208-2018 standards for corrosion protection and can be used to protect a wide variety of metals, including carbon steel, aluminum, galvanized steel, stainless steel, copper, and brass during domestic and overseas shipments. After use, Eco-Corr Film® can be disposed in an industrial composting environment, giving it a final non-polluting destination in the soil.
