Finding rust on steel bars and coils packaged in reinforced corrosion inhibiting paper is a fact of life for many in the steel industry.

This should not be the case when top quality corrosion protection and durability is available with Cortec's premium CorShiled VpCI 146 Reinforced Paper. Most reinforced corrosion inhibiting papers do not pair paper strength with corrosion protection, Cortec's superior Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibiting paper offers a different experience for both ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

CorShiled VpCI-146 Reinforced Paper is used in packaging metals or finished goods with pointed, oddly shaped, or sharp edges that would normally puncture non-reinforced papers. It combines excellent tear strength with reliable corrosion protection through innovative VpCI Technology. Among its other qualities, VpCI-146 Reinforced Paper:

  1. Is non-toxic -contains no nitrites, phosphates, silicones, chromates, or other heavy metals
  2. Creates a protective layer that does not need to be removed prior to further surface finishing or coating application
  3. Provides a barrier to water, oil and grease
  4. Comes in large widths for better wrapping of large objects
  5. Protects dry or oiled metals during storage, transit, and overseas shipment
  6. Is effective against aggressive environments including humidity, SO2, H2S, and galvanic corrosion from dissimilar metals
  7. Is commercially equivalent to military specification MIL-P-3420E
  8. Eliminates package contamination by using natural grade paper
  9. Combines corrosion protection and packaging into one step

Cortec, the global leader in VpCI technology, has interacted with key industry players during its thirty-plus years in the business of developing premium quality VpCI papers. Cortec’s patented VpCI Technology has revolutionized the way metals are protected in an enclosed package. There are no chemical concentrations to calculate and no chemical tanks or application systems to maintain. Simply wrap your product

in the paper, fold the edges together, and tape the paper in place as needed. The VpCI coating on the paper vaporizes and reaches all metal surfaces to provide complete corrosion protection. The unique inhibiting action of VpCI molecules forms a very thin and very effective protective layer that does not alter the appearance of products or require removal upon opening the package.

The large size of CorShield VpCI-146 Reinforced Paper, is available in widths up to 100” (2.5 m), is practical, efficient, and economical for wrapping around large pieces of equipment and raw metal goods, saving time and labor over standard-size corrosion inhibiting papers.

CorShield VpCI-146 Reinforced Paper provides superior corrosion protection for both ferrous and non- ferrous metals, eliminating the need to stock a variety of papers for all the different types of metals and alloys that need protection. Parts protected with CorShield VpCI-146 Reinforced Paper can be painted, welded, and soldered. The protective layer does not influence physical properties of most sensitive electrical components, including conductivity and resistance.
