Cortec's MilCorr VpCI shrink film to fight climate change

Cortec has faced extreme weather due to climate changes, so it presents MilCorr VpCI shrink film – created for the most extreme outdoor climates. In trials conducted, MilCorr film demonstrated outstanding resistance to the power of storms, fires, and hurricanes.

Climate change fuels extreme weather conditions such as the tornados, fires, and floods recently witnessed in Europe. The Mediterranean region is burning, and in June, tornados swept through the Czech Republic. The European continent is seeking to cope with these new extreme environmental conditions. Unfortunately, billions of dollars in assets are lost every year worldwide due to extreme and aggressive environments that lead to corrosion and severe damage. 

In addition, in harsh outdoor conditions, the protection of infrastructure and personal assets against these massive storms has called for increased utilization of corrosion inhibitor packaging protection to neutralize the damaging effects of saltwater, humidity, and debris hurled through the air.

Cortec developed the film to protect the outdoor assets

Cortec developed MilCorr VpCI shrink film to preserve and protect outdoor assets, even in the harshest environments. This film protects assets of all sizes—from aircraft to offshore equipment to operational spares on outdoor racks when unsheltered storage is the only option. 

It preserves surfaces against nature’s most powerful elements by providing non-hazardous, user-friendly protection with corrosion inhibitors that can replace conventional rust preventatives such as oils and desiccants, offering an alternative to wooden crating, aluminum foils, and vacuum packaging. By using Cortec’s MilCorr, preservation costs may be reduced 40-60%, according to well-documented data for deep storage and protection of vehicles and equipment. 

This heavy-duty film contains VpCI technology and provides durable protection to maintain the integrity of the film itself and the parts packaged within. VpCI molecules vaporize, diffuse, and condense on metal surfaces within the enclosed space, protecting the part’s exterior and void spaces and recessed areas. 

MilCorr VpCI shrink film offers complete product storage protection during domestic and overseas shipments. Asset owners can create a unitized, tight, and tamper-proof protective environment by heat-shrinking MilCorr VpCI shrink film to fit the object’s shape. This will enable multi-metal corrosion protection via contact and vapor phase molecular action of the corrosion inhibitors. MilCorr also offers UV protection and provides a durable physical barrier effective in most extreme outdoor climates, both on land and sea, amid high temperatures, humidity, and chlorides.

Equipment wrapped in MilCorr VpCI shrink film has been proven to survive hurricanes. Several aircraft cargo loaders underwent testing to evaluate the performance of a VpCI preservation system for extending asset life expectancy. After various VpCI materials were applied internally, the assets were wrapped in MilCorr VpCI shrink film and stored outside. 

Three hurricanes hit the whole region but, despite the storms and the massive amounts of saltwater and debris hurled through the air, the MilCorr VpCI shrink film escaped with a few minor cuts and abrasions. By the end of the trial period, the cargo loaders met all test parameters and continued to perform well.

MilCorr provides a preservation solution for a variety of long-term outdoor storage needs:

  • Military vehicles and equipment preservation
  • Mothballing of industrial equipment
  • Heavy equipment covers
  • Recreational vehicle (boats, snowmobiles, etc.) preservation
  • Pallet shrouds
  • Export packaging of expensive larger equipment

However, Cortec MilCorr VpCI shrink film can also be used as a commercial equivalent to MIL-PRF-22019 D Type 1.

 

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
