Cortec’s CorrShield VpCI(R)-126 Colour of Blue, the bestselling VCI/VpCI film in the world is celebrating 25th anniversary since its launch. CorrShield VpCI Colour of Blue is the first film to offer multimetal corrosion protection worldwide and has revolutionised the market of corrosion protection packaging.

Compounding, extrusion, printing and converting of these patented, high technology films and bags is being done in two Cortec’s dedicated plants: Cambridge, Minnesota, USA and Beli Manastir, Croatia. Two plants are the only producers of VpCI films and bags in the world that do not outsource production of VCI masterbatch, films and bags and have a complete control of quality of their products.

CorrShield VpCI-126 Colour of Blue is covered by US, Japanese and EU patents and trademarks. In addition to Cortec’s two plants these products are produced also locally by licensees in Germany, Spain, Russia, Turkey, China, Japan and Brazil. The latest advanced version of CorrShield VpCI-126 Colour of Blue now contains even higher content of recycled resin that provides top quality multimetal corrosion protection while enabling significant money savings.

The film combines the latest film technology with the most effective corrosion protection for all of the metal products. Sealing your product in this film protects metal parts from all types of corrosion including rust, tarnish, stains, white rust and oxidation for up to five years.

CorrShield VpCI-126 Colour of Blue is contemporary and environmentally safe replacement for hazardous conventional rust preventatives such as oils and desiccants. By using CorrShield VpCI-126 Colour of Blue the customer gains safe and economical solution considering that the film also eliminates all the degreasing or coating removal required in the past.
