VpCI®-126

EcofilmDESCRIPTION
Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI) 126 Series films combine the latest film
technology with the most effective corrosion protection for all of your metal products. Sealing your product in Cortec VpCI films protects metal parts from all types of corrosion including rust, tarnish, stains, white rust, and oxidation for up to 5 years.* It’s as easy as putting your product in a Cortec VpCI package!
Cortec VpCI films and bags replace conventional rust preventatives such as oils and desiccants. You save even more because Cortec VpCI packaging eliminates all the degreasing or coating removal required in the past. Your product can now be used immediately.  VpCI-126 is transparent, making it easy to identify parts. Additionally, it does not contain free amines, phosphates, or halogen-based materials, and is non­toxic and recyclable.
VpCI-126 MIL version also qualified to MIL-PRF­22019D (Type 1), according to the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division, QPL 13600 Ser 43500B120­3/531. In addition, VpCI-126 MIL is referenced in TO 1-1-686, TM 55-1500-331-34, NAVAIR 15-01-4, and NACE Standard RP0487-2000 Item #21037.
VpCI-126 Series films and bags protect metal objects as small as a needle to as large as the contents of an oceangoing container.
* Depending on film construction thickness and application.

VpCI-126 can be manufactured utilizing a wide array of the most advanced resins. Custom blends are available to give you the exact properties you need, whether it’s improved puncture resistance, tear strength, or other requirements.

MULTIMETAL VPCI
Metal parts packaged in Cortec VpCI-126 Blue receive continuous protection against salt, excessive humidity, condensation, moisture, aggressive industrial atmospheres, and dissimilar metal corrosion. The VpCIs vaporize and then condense to metal surfaces in the enclosed package. VpCI reaches every area of your part, protecting its exterior as well as hard-to-reach interior surfaces. You get complete product protection during storage as well as during domestic and overseas shipments, virtually eliminating any rust claims.


FDA APPROVED AND RECYCLABLE
Cortec VpCI-126 has received approval by the Federal Drug Administration for use on food containers and food handling equipment. In addition, Cortec VpCI-126 Blue has received approval from a leading institute regarding the recycling and disposal of packaging materials containing Cortec proprietary chemistry.
