EcoCortec®’s Eco-Corr® film has received industrial composability certification.
EcoCortec® has declared that it has received the industrial composability certification of its Eco-Corr® film. The “OK compost INDUSTRIAL” certificate was issued by TÜV Austria and certifies that the biodegradable and compostable packaging film complies with the industrial composability criteria according to EN 13432 (European equivalent of ASTM D6400). The film provides contact, barrier, and vapor-phase corrosion inhibition.
“EcoCortec’s team is immensely proud and enthusiastic of compost certification for this breakthrough packaging film. Eco-Corr® has been continuously improved for several years by company’s specialists in cooperation with scientific intuitions”, said the company based in Croatia.
This film can be used in several industrial applications and is an excellent replacement for conventional VCI films which present a significant threat to the environment. In addition to being environmentally friendly, it is a cost-effective option as users do not have expensive disposal procedures. Eco-Corr Film® will disintegrate into carbon dioxide and water within 2-3 months in a composting environment.
Eco-Corr Film® is shelf stable and does not break down prematurely until disposed in a suitable composting environment. Metal parts packaged in Eco-Corr Film® receive continuous protection against salt, excessive humidity, condensation, moisture, aggressive industrial atmospheres and dissimilar metal corrosion. The Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors will vaporize and then condense on the metal surfaces in the enclosed package. VpCI® reaches every area of the packaged piece, protecting the exterior as well as hard-to-reach internal surfaces. Users will get full product protection during storage and during domestic and overseas shipments.
Eco-Corr® is available from Cortec’s European plant, EcoCortec®, located in Croatia as well as North American film production base, Cortec® Advanced Films. Both plants are daughter companies of global corrosion protection manufacturer, Cortec® Corporation.
