Premium Corrosion Inhibiting Papers

Our VCI papers, manufactured under the VpCI ® brand name of quality, are coated with proprietary Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors for superior corrosion protection of both ferrous and non-ferrous metal. Made from high quality neutral natural kraft paper, these paper products do not contain fluorochemicals, nitrites, phosphates, silicones, chromates, or other heavy metals. Cortec ® VpCI ® papers are effective against aggressive environments including humidity, SO 2, H 2S, and galvanic corrosion from dissimilar metals. Most VpCI ® papers are fully recyclable and repulpable.

How VCI Paper Works 

Cortec ® VpCI ® papers are simple to use: there are no chemical concentrations to calculate or application systems to maintain. Simply wrap or interleave your metal parts in VpCI ® paper and fold the edges together so there is no free airflow. Use adhesive tape as needed to hold paper folds in place. VpCI ® molecules in the paper coating vaporize and condense in a protective molecular layer on the surfaces of metal enclosed inside the paper packaging. When components are removed from the paper, the VpCI ® molecules naturally float away from the metal, leaving behind a dry and ready-to-use surface. (Learn more about VCI technology here.)

Barrier Coated Paper 

Our fully recyclable/repulpable moisture barrier papers offer excellent alternatives to polyethylene and wax papers. Paper coated with our water-based barrier coatings have displayed moisture barrier properties competitive to those of wax or polyethylene coated papers, with the advantage of being more environmentally friendly and easier to dispose. Our barrier coating can be combined with VCI protection to make dual corrosion inhibiting, moisture barrier paper. Or it can be used standalone to make basic recyclable moisture resistant packaging paper or linerboard for the many applications that require either internal or external moisture resistance. Although our recyclable moisture barrier paper and linerboard are by far the most environmentally responsible option, we do continue to offer corrosion inhibiting polycoated paper for those who want to opt for traditional moisture barrier protection.

Specialty Products

Cortec® papers also include special varieties such as VpCI ® creped, VpCI ® reinforced, or VpCI ® grease resistant paper; heat sealable paper; and tarnish-inhibiting paper that scavenges H 2S.
