Original Press Release:

Transparent, Vacuum Sealable Packaging Provides Corrosion Protection During Shipment

Cortec® Corporation (Saint Paul, MN) introduces ClearCorr VpCI(TM) Barrier Laminate Film, the newest addition to Cortec's innovative corrosion protection packaging line. ClearCorr is the only transparent, vacuum sealable film on the market that provides long-term vapor corrosion protection for the sealed parts/products. ClearCorr is an
excellent packaging solution for long-term preservation packaging, such as automotive build-ahead programs.

Unlike traditional foil and desiccant packages, parts contained within Cortec's ClearCorr can be easily identified and inspected throughout the preservation period and receive continuous vapor protection against corrosion damage regardless of temperature and humidity.

ClearCorr even provides protection in instances where the package is open or punctured.

First, ClearCorr saves time and cost for manufacturers by incorporating Cortec's proprietary Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibiting Technology (VpCI(TM)) into the film. Cortec's VpCI(TM) Technology provides long-term corrosion protection for metals reaching even inaccessible areas, and eliminating the time/costs needed to apply traditionally used oils or desiccants. The water vapor transmission rate and the O2 transmission rate are less than 0.001g²/100 in² per day. Second, ClearCorr saves shipping time and delays because the film transparency allows quick product inspection at customs'
checkpoints without opening the packaging. Third, ClearCorr is vacuum sealable; it takes less space than non-vacuum packaging and allows manufacturers to ship more product. Lastly, ClearCorr is designed to resist a high degree of puncture or tear, making it an excellent choice for packaging sensitive products or long-term equipment preservation.

ClearCorr VpCI(TM) Barrier Laminate Film consists of LDPE film, containing vapor phase corrosion inhibitors (VpCIs), laminated to a polyester film. ClearCorr is available in custom sized film or bags.
