Cortec VpCI-149 is unique corrosion inhibiting paper for the protection of a wide variety of metals. Formulated to provide extra protection to sensitive metals such as copper, aluminum, and cast iron; VpCI-149 is an excellent product for virtually all packaging needs. Manufactured using neutral natural kraft paper, the coating provides a very soft and conformable feel to the paper. It wraps easily around metal parts, making it easy to use. Since it is not a saturated paper it will not tear like many other VCI papers.
Designed specially to provide a superior level of VpCI protection compared to other VCI papers, VpCI-149 can be used for a variety of applications. The soft feel makes it easy to use when individually wrapping parts, while the strong vapor phase protection makes a great product for interleaving and protecting void spaces.
Cortec’s VpCI-149 paper is made from the highest quality neutral natural kraft paper: our paper is made without the use of chlorine or another chemical bleaching. This eliminates package contamination found with other competing VCI/VPI papers. VpCI-149 is easy to use. There are no chemical concentrations to calculate, and no chemical tanks or application systems to maintain. Just wrap your products in the paper, and fold the edges together. Use adhesive tape as needed to hold paper folds in place. The VpCI coating on the paper vaporizes, reaching all metal surfaces to provide complete corrosion protection.
The unique inhibiting action of Cortec VpCI forms a very thin and very effective protective layer that does not alter the appearance of products or require removal before further finishing or use. Parts protected with VpCI-149 can be painted, welded, and soldered. The VpCI-149 protective layer does not influence the physical properties of the most sensitive electrical components including conductivity and resistance.
Cortec VpCI-149 paper can be used to protect products for storage and shipment in a wide variety of ways: the 149 Kraft wrap for single item packaging or interleaving; end closures for shipping tubes, insert strips for recessed areas in large packages, and as sheet liners or separators between products.
