When it comes to applying VCI paper to prevent rust, the possible variations are endless—whether using a long narrow strip to emit protective vapors in a box, a square sheet to wrap metal parts, or a wide sheet for interleaving! Whatever the VCI paper application, Cortec® Corporation is ready to support these and many other creative end-uses by offering a wide variety of stock and custom perforation and sizing options for metals protection.
VCI Paper Options: To Perf or Not to Perf?
With multiple options available, is it better to get VCI paper perforated on a roll, to cut it off the roll manually, or to buy it in precut sheets? The answer is that it all depends on the user’s needs and preferences. For example, precut sheets of CorShield® VpCI®-146 Paper may be best for a manufacturer that produces and wraps the same part over and over.
Others prefer to cut their own sizes of CorShield® VpCI®-146 Paper off a roll by hand or let a robotic machine do it. Still others find it much safer and convenient to tear a pre-perforated sheet of CorShield® VpCI®-146 Paper off a roll rather than rely on a utility knife and guesswork. Ultimately, the choice is up to the end user, for whom Cortec® stands ready to adapt with customized options if needed.
Customizing a VCI Paper Corrosion Solution
If, for some reason, Cortec’s stock items do not suffice, end users can custom order rolls of CorShield® VpCI®-146 Paper in a variety of widths much larger than the industry standard. Also, thanks to Cortec’s recently improved capabilities, users have expanded options for custom perforation. For example, if a company wants to use CorShield® VpCI®-146 Paper to interleave automotive parts stacked on a standard 48 x 40 inch (1 x 1.2 m) pallet, they can request that Cortec’s stock roll size of 48 inch (1.2 m) wide CorShield® VpCI®-146 Paper be perforated at 40 inches (1 m), allowing workers to tear off pieces of protective paper perfectly matched to the size of the pallet. Alternatively, custom precut sheets are also available in a multiplicity of sizes, in addition to the many stock options of precut square sheets already available.
Custom Roll Sizes: 3-98 inches (7.6-248.9 cm) x 50-50,000 feet (15.24-15,240 m) (depending on basis weight)
Stock Perforation Sizes on a Roll: 12 x 12 inch (30.5 x 30.5 cm) x roll size
Custom Perforation Sizes on a Roll: 12-72 inches (61-183 cm) x 12-48 inches (30.5-122 cm) x 300-3000 feet (91-914 m)
Custom Precut Sheet Sizes: 3-52 x 3-56 inches (7-132 x 7-142 cm)
