Corrosion Protection on Metal Parts in Aggressive Outdoor Conditions – VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film

Corrosion protection on metal parts that are too big to be stored indoors using shrink films is gaining popularity.

UV Shrink Film

Studies suggest that between 2021 and 2029, the shrink film market will increase at a yearly compound growth of 6%.

A robust outdoor film that can withstand aggressive outdoor weather conditions will help you do away with corrosion on metal parts. Cortec’s VpCI 126 HP UV Shrink Film is one of the best outdoor shrink films to withstand harsh weather conditions.

It was developed by Cortec’s European branch – EcoCortec®, which has invested a lot of time and money in developing sustainable products.


This shrink film offers corrosion protection on metal parts in outdoor aggressive weather conditions because it has two primary components:

VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film contains a preservation vapor phase corrosion inhibitor (VPCI), which works by forming a protective molecular layer over metal parts.

High-strength resin with UV stabilisers gives this shrink film the strength it needs to withstand aggressive outdoor conditions.

The best part about using this corrosion inhibiting film is that it can protect multiple metal types. These two groups are in two primary groups; ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

Features of the VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film
The VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film has three primary features which make it ideal the ideal candidate for corrosion protection for metal parts:

  • Recyclable and eco-friendly.
  • This film can easily shrink when using shrinking tools.
  • It contains a multi-metal corrosion inhibitor that forms a protective molecular layer over these metal parts.


Why You Should Consider Using VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film for Corrosion Protection on Metal Parts
Cortec’s VpCI 126 HP UV Shrink Film has an unquestionably outstanding performance.

Using VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film efficiently helps you do away with traditional corrosion protection methods on metal parts. Additionally, it is economical because you do not have to deal with disposing of plastic bags as inorganic waste.

It is important to note that plastic bags do not perform as well as VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film in protecting metal parts against corrosion.

They are uneconomical due to imposed bans and increased taxes and are also ineffective. They break down prematurely in the presence of aggressive oils and grease, leaving metal parts exposed.

Real Life Example of Corrosion Protection on Metal Parts
Consider the following example;

Recently, a prominent Spanish company that manufactures and sells critical components for wind turbines, such as hubs, shafts, rings, etc. experienced corrosion. Since corrosion is a great menace that ruins metal parts and is cost-intensive, the company needed to come up with a solution – fast!

The proposed solution was to wash these critical wind turbine components using VpCI®-415. It is a chemical that requires dilution with water to clean up grime and dirt on metal parts.

After cleaning and drying, they proceeded to coat these metal parts using VpCI-368 D, a peel-able, removable coating for corrosion protection. The best way to apply this coating is by using a roller.

After applying this protective coat, the company added the VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film, which would protect these critical metal parts from corrosion. All this was done so that parts would not rust in storage.

Afterward, during transit, these parts were shipped with the VpCI-415, VpCI®-368 D, and VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film. Doing so would help protect these critical wind turbine parts from corrosion, especially moisture.

The VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film performed exceptionally well with regard to corrosion protection. The company further resolved to use this method as it is economical and efficient continually.

Making Sense of it All
Cortec’s VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film is one of the best outdoor shrink films that can withstand harsh weather conditions.

Using VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film efficiently helps you do away with traditional corrosion protection methods on metal parts. In addition, you can supplement it with other corrosion inhibitors from Cortec® to enhance corrosion protection on metal parts.

It would be best if you’d consider using the VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film. You can reach out to us for more information about this product.
