In recent days, supply chain delays have been hitting close to home. Not only are industries facing shortages of raw materials and goods, but consumers have begun noticing more and more empty spaces on the shelves where their staple or favorite products are missing. One product that industries do not need to worry about right now is VCI paper for packaging metals, thanks to companies like Cortec® Corporation, who has put a high priority on vertical integration and customer service.
Cortec® Coated Products (CCP), located in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, is an outstanding supplier of VCI paper, which protects metals from rust. Brand names such as CorShield® VpCI®-146 and EcoShield® VpCI®-144 are among the best in quality corrosion inhibiting papers with environmental responsibility. Both are USDA Certified Biobased Products. CorShield® VpCI®-146 Paper offers Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor protection on both sides of the paper, for greater packaging convenience, while EcoShield® VpCI®-144 Paper adds the option of corrosion protection on one side with a recyclable moisture and grease resistant barrier on the other. A variety of other stock and custom papers complete the portfolio of specialty VCI and non-VCI papers at CCP.
CCP typically beats its standard lead times of three days’ turnaround for shipping out stock items and three weeks on custom orders, helping North American customers get what they need in a reasonable amount of time instead of waiting weeks and weeks on end. Cortec’s Director of Manufacturing, Caleb Pheneger, stated, “Our lead times haven’t changed in the last few years despite supply chain issues and difficulties in the market.” This is attributed to Cortec’s vertical integration, a commitment to wise stocking practices, and a strong team dedicated to serving the customer. Cortec® also stocks VCI paper in Croatia, keeping European customers covered with a similar quick turnaround in response to their orders.
