Eco-Corr® Biodegradable VpCI® Film, Patented


Eco-Corr® is the first and only certified biodegradable corrosion inhibiting film. Eco-Corr® contains Cortec’s proprietary VpCI® technology and provides excellent contact, barrier and vapor-phase corrosion protection for ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Various formulations containing up to 40% biobased content are available and can be designed to fit required properties ranging from highly elastic to semi-rigid structures.

Eco-Corr® is certified 100% biodegradable and compostable by the Biodegradable Products Institute/ United States Composting Council (BPI/USCC) according to ASTM D6400. When placed in a typical commercial composting environment, Eco-Corr® films will fully biodegrade into carbon dioxide and water within a matter of weeks. There is no ecotoxicity to the soil, plants or microorganisms involved in this process. 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® films are shelf stable and will not break down prematurely until disposed of in a proper composting environment.

Application: Metal parts packaged in Eco-Corr® receive continuous protection against salt, excessive humidity, condensation, moisture, aggressive industrial atmosphere 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. You get complete product protection during storage as well as during domestic and overseas shipments, virtually eliminating any rust claims. Once the film is no longer needed, Eco-Corr® can be composted and will degrade into carbon dioxide and water within weeks, certified under BPS guidelines.
