Cortec CorShield VpCI-146 paper

Cortec’s best-selling CorShield VpCI-146 paper got better for the environment with the addition of Eco-bio technology. As packaging pollution becomes an increasing concern in today’s society, Cortec has been looking into keeping the environment cleaner while offering top-quality corrosion protection. CorShield VpCI-146 paper with Eco-bio technology does that by enhancing the biodegradable and compostable characteristics of a naturally sourced paper that provides reliable corrosion protection on both sides.

Cortec VpCI paper brings circular economy 

CorShield VpCI-146 paper brings the circular economy of responsible sourcing and disposal to reality in more than one way. To start with, CorShield VpCI-146 is a USDA-certified biobased product that contains 92% USDA-certified biobased content. Furthermore, it is made from 100% recycled content paper, doubling its sustainable sourcing.

At the end of the product life cycle, CorShield VpCI-146 has multiple disposal options. First, it is recyclable and repulpable, giving users the option of sending it for reprocessing into new paper products. Second, and most recently, it is designed to be commercially compostable. Not long ago, the paper underwent compostable disintegration testing according to ASTM D6868 in Cortec laboratories. CorShield VpCI-146 disintegrated in just ten weeks, faster than the duration allowed by the ASTM method.

Industry’s Premium VpCI Paper

CorShield VpCI-146 with Eco-bio technology is the premium corrosion inhibiting paper in the industry. It relies on Cortec’s patented biodegradable and compostable Vapor phase corrosion inhibiting technology to protect metals inside an enclosed package. Both sides of CorShield VpCI-146 paper offer adequate protection to ferrous and non-ferrous metals, eliminating the need to stock various papers for different metal types.

Corrosion protection is achieved by wrapping metal items in the paper, folding the edges together, and taping as needed to hold the paper in place. The VpCI coating on the paper vaporizes, reaching all metal surfaces within the package to provide complete corrosion protection with a very thin, very effective VpCI layer that does not alter product appearance or require removal before further finishing or use.

Convenient and Comprehensive Protection

CorShield VpCI-146 is an extremely suitable material that combines corrosion protection and packaging into one step. Metal manufacturers, finishers, and shippers can use it to protect dry or oiled metals during storage, transit, and overseas shipment. It can be used for interleaving layers of parts, wrapping parts, or capping the ends of tubes. It protects multiple metal types and is effective against aggressive environments, including humidity, SO2, H2S, and galvanic corrosion from dissimilar metals. 

It is a great backup “insurance plan,” as it were, to protect against unpredictable changing environments that could foster condensation corrosion or other unwelcome oxidative reactions on metal. For greater convenience and adaptability to the user’s needs, Cortec now offers CorShield VpCI-146 perforated on a roll as much as 48 inches (1.2 m) wide, large enough for pallet packaging.

 

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
