Cortec's Protective Metal Coating Desicorr® Promises to Deliver Matchless Corrosion Protection

Published on 2011-11-03. Author : SpecialChem

Cortec® Corporation presents Desicorr®, a specially designed two sided pouch, which contains a unique combination of desiccant and VpCI®, whose synergistic action gives unparalleled corrosion protection. VpCI® action protects recessed and inaccessible surfaces, and continues to provide corrosion protection even when desiccant is fully spent. What makes this product so unique is it's ability to change color when desiccant is saturated. This saves labor and cost of moisture indicator.

It is ideal for protecting packaged ferrous and non-ferrous metals from corrosion. Pouches provide multimetal protection of aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel, copper, brass, silver, galvanized and silicon steel. The dual function of Desicorr VpCI® pouches reduces moisture in the air (desiccant action) and provides multimetal protection (VpCI® action), within a package. In essence, the desiccant action allows the VpCI® to have free access to the surface of the metal, without competition from moisture on the metal surface.

Desicorr VpCI® is designed to protect products, components or assemblies when packaged in corrugated boxes, plastic wrap or bags, wood or metal containers, electronic (marine or commercial) and electrical equipment. One Desicorr VpCI® emitter protects 0,028 m3 (28,3 l), and is able to absorb 1.65 grams of water. Degreasing or cleaning of protected parts is not required and the film does not need removal prior to using part. Desicorr VpCI® meets NACE Standard TM0208 and MIL-D-3464 Type I and II.
