VpCI Emitters

Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors for small or large packages

We have the right dosage for your applications.

VpCI® emitters provide an extra dose of Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors for small or large packages needing additional protection against corrosion during shipping or storage. By inserting one of the many different styles and sizes of VpCI® emitters into your VpCI® packaging system, users can ensure that small and large spaces are saturated with a protective corrosion inhibiting environment. For especially sensitive items that will be undergoing extremely harsh conditions, such as those on an oceangoing vessel or in an open yard, using a VpCI® emitter serves as extra security against the corrosion that threatens to degrade the value of metal goods and assets—from small freshly manufactured components to large equipment ready for lay-up.

VpCI® emitters take many different forms and are dosed based on the volume of space that they are calculated to effectively protect. Sometimes all that is needed is to insert a Cor-Pak® Tablet or 1-MUL Pouch to protect a space of 1 cubic foot (28 L) or less. At other times, an EcoPouch® or Bio-Pad® roll may be needed to protect several dozen cubic feet (several cubic meters) of space. Self-stick VpCI® emitter cups are another convenient way to include long-lasting VpCI® protection, for example, in the shipment of electrical or electronic cabinets.

VpCI® emitters release Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors that travel through the air space, forming an invisible protective shield on all accessible metal surfaces inside the enclosed package. This VpCI® shield does not alter metal properties. Instead, it blocks the ability of oxygen, moisture, and other corrosive elements to attack the metal surface and make it rust. After the metal part is taken out of the package, the VpCI® molecules float away, and the metal components, machinery, or products are ready for immediate use, no cleaning or degreasing required.

VpCI-130 Series Impregnated Foams

Multifunctional VpCI®, Desiccant and Antistatic Action
Cortec® VpCI®-130 Series Foams are unique flexible packaging materials that combine VpCI® protection, and desiccant action; plus excellent antistatic capabilities all in one step! You can now eliminate expensive and messy rust preventatives with VpCI®-130 Series Foams. Parts protected are always ready for use; no degreasing or coating removal is required. Application of multifunctional materials such as VpCI®-130 Series Foams results in significant weight and labor savings. Metal parts packaged with VpCI®-130 Series Foams receive continuous protection against humidity, condensation, aggressive industrial atmospheres, dissimilar metal corrosion (galvanic corrosion), salt air, and residual impurities left after processing.

Cortec®  VpCI®-130 Series Foams are specially designed withVapor  phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI®) impregnated throughout the foam’s polymeric matrix. They are excellent for protection of ferrous, non-ferrous metals, and alloys such as:  steel, copper, brass, aluminum, zinc, solder, silver, etc. VpCI®-130 Series Foams do not change critical physical and/or chemical properties of electronic components, and are suitable for protection of printed circuit boards.

METALS PROTECTED: Aluminum • Galvanized Steel • Brass • Solder • Carbon Steels • Silver • Copper • Zinc


Cortec VpCI-105 Emitter Cup

Cortec® VpCI®-105 emitters are unique devices designed to provide corrosion protection for metal components and parts enclosed in non-ventilated control boxes, cabinets, or tool boxes up to 5 cubic feet (141.6 liters). The VpCI®-105 device emits Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors, which form a protective coating on all metal surfaces. VpCI®-105 is a patented plastic emitter with a breathable Tyvek®* membrane through which the corrosion inhibitor is released. It provides long-term protection against corrosion even in the presence of adverse conditions including salt, moisture, airborne contaminants, H2 S, SO2 , NH3 , and others.

VpCI®-105 can be effectively used for the protection of metal in any enclosure: • Packaging and storage electrical equipment • Marine navigation and communication electronic equipment • Aerospace electrical controls • Electric motors • Switching equipment • Fuse boxes and power boxes • Medical equipment • Electrical wireways and terminal boxes • Scientific and measuring instruments • Telecommunications equipment • Remote electronics devices • Hand-held battery-operated devices • Tool-boxes, gun safes, and any other enclosure for metal storage.
