The VpCI bags of Cortec protecting automotive parts from corrosion

The vapour corrosion inhibitor bags developed by Cortec ensure the protection of automotive metal components during storage and shipping.

The VCI (vapor corrosion inhibitor) bags developed by Cortec® Corporation are an innovative protective packaging solution that has been specifically designed to allow automotive metal components manufacturers and suppliers to ensure dry protection against corrosion without employing greasy rust preventatives during storage and shipping.

When closed, the bags release corrosion inhibiting vapours that condition the inside of the package and form a molecular protective layer on metal surfaces, allowing the parts to be protected against corrosion. When the component is removed from the package, it is ready for immediate installation.

In addition, Cortec ensures quality and consistency through vertical integration, since it oversees the entire process from start to finish, manufacturing each corrosion inhibitor masterbatch and testing it for corrosion protection before it is compounded and extruded into VpCI® Bags. Each box is labelled with a lot number and all bags are printed with the year and quarter to help with traceability and shelf-life questions in case an issue does arise.
