New Eco-Corr Film

Thursday, July 07, 2011

Eco-Corr Film® is a biobased and biodegradable film utilizing Cortec's patented VpCI® technology. It is the first 100% biodegradable VCI film in the world, designed to provide tensile strength, tear resistance, and elongation. It is certified under DIN CERTCO DIN EN 13432 (Europe) and Biodegradable Products Institute ASTM D6400 (USA), as well as heat and water stable.

Eco-Corr Film® is designed to provide contact, barrier, and Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI®) protection for up to two years. According to the company, it provides multi-metal corrosion inhibitor protection and is improved replacement for non-degradable and nitrite-based VCI films. Once exposed to soil or compost conditions, this product will disintegrate rapidly and completely within weeks, without contaminating the soil. It is nitrite and amine free.

Metal parts packaged in Eco-Corr Film® receive protection against salt, excessive humidity, condensation, moisture, aggressive industrial atmosphere, and dissimilar metal corrosion. The Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors vaporize and then condense on all metal surfaces in the enclosed package. VpCI® reaches every area of your package, protecting exposed parts as well as hard to reach interior surfaces against micro-corrosion. Once put to use, Eco-Corr Film® is designed to remain effective with regard to mechanical strength until the film is placed in contact with material containing microorganisms, such as certain types of waste, soil, and compost. Under these conditions, 100% biodegradation into carbon dioxide and water will occur within a few weeks, with no residual contamination of the soil.

Eco-Corr Film® meets NACE TM0208-2008 and German TL-8135-002 standards for corrosion protection.
