World’s First Certified, Compostable, Eco-Corr® Patented Films and Bags powered by Nano-VpC®
Eco-Corr Film® is the first biodegradable corrosion inhibiting film that contains Cortec’s proprietary VpCI® Technology and provides excellent contact, barrier, and vapor-phase corrosion protection for ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Eco-Corr Film® will disintegrate into carbon dioxide and water within 2-3 months in a commercial composting environment. The exact time for films to biodegrade is dependent upon the conditions and activity of the disposal environment (temperature, soil quality, activity of microorganisms). Eco-Corr Film® is shelf stable and will not break down prematurely until disposed of in a proper composting environment. Laboratory composability testing of Eco-Corr Film® using a household-style compost bin showed the film was disintegrated in 112 days. EcoCorr is complete replacement for non-degradable and inferior blend films. It contains biobased polymer resins and is excellent environmentally responsible alternative to conventional polyethylene films for shipping and storage applications. Metal parts that are packaged in Eco-Corr Film® receive continuous protection against salt, excessive humidity, condensation, moisture, aggressive industrial atmospheres, and dissimilar metal corrosion. The Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors vaporize and then condense on all metal surfaces in the enclosed package. VpCI® reaches every area of your part, protecting its exterior as well as hard to reach interior surfaces. The products provides complete corrosion protection during storage as well as during domestic and overseas shipments.
Eco-Corr Film® is certified industrially compostable by TÜV Austria (#TA8012206603) and meets following standards:
- ASTM D6400
- NACE TM0208-2018 standard for corrosion protection
- German TL-8135-002 standards for corrosion protection
