Recyclable VpCI®-148 | Grease-Resistant VpCI Paper

Grease resistant VpCI paper is continually gaining popularity by the day because of how beneficial it is to end users and their environmental concerns.

Consider the following example:

Imagine this; You want to ship auto parts from your favourite automobile company. However, these auto parts are no good if they are corroded. In addition, they need to be shipped with some internal grease from the manufacturer.

You might decide to use traditional plastic VCI papers. However using these plastic bags is not sustainable because they are not fully recyclable. They are also not grease-resistant, as you will soon discover by reading this article further.

Furthermore, governmental restrictions and increased taxation on plastic bags mean that these papers are not economical.

The best way to handle this scenario is by using Cortec’s VpCI oil resistant recyclable paper.

This packaging paper stands out from other VCI papers because it is recyclable and has corrosion protection features.

Why You Should Consider Using VpCI®-148 Grease-Resistant VCI Paper Over Plastic VCI Bags
Apart from protecting your metal parts from corrosion, e.g., rust, the ​​VpCI®-148 VCI paper is still an excellent packaging paper. Consider the following real-life example:

An automobile manufacturer wanted to ship SUV frames to Germany. The manufacturer faced corrosion-related issues by simply using plastic VCI bags. These plastic bags would break down prematurely because of grease and aggressive oils.

As a result, the frames were left exposed, which meant they underwent corrosion after a while during shipping. The SUV frames were rejected because their quality was no longer good. If used, the SUV frames would put a lot of lives at risk.

The results changed after the automobile manufacturer began using the ​​VpCI®-148 grease-resistant VCI paper. This recyclable grease-resistant paper prevented corrosion and stayed intact despite the presence of aggressive oils and grease.

In addition, Cortec® makes wider VCI papers compared to standard VCI plastic papers. It is an added advantage as you get to protect bigger metal parts efficiently and effectively.

Here’s the deal:
It would be best to consider using ​​VpCI®-148 paper over standard VCI plastic bags for packaging parts that have aggressive oils or grease. In addition to being strong, VpCI®-148 is recyclable. It enhances environmental credentials by reducing environmental pollution and plastic waste.

Where To Use VpCI®-148 VCI Paper
Apart from shipping auto parts, there are many applications where the ​​VpCI®-148 grease-resistant VCI paper is usable and highly effective. This paper is important to note that it is ideal for corrosion protection on ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

Some of the popular metals that metal parts manufacturers pack inside the VpCI®-148 paper are:

  • Cast iron
  • Copper
  • Brass (zinc content should not exceed 30%)
  • Galvanized steel
  • Stainless steel
  • Carbon steel

How to Use VpCI®-148 Grease-Resistant Recyclable VCI Paper
VpCI®-148 has two sides which are typical of any paper. However, when packaging metal parts with grease, you should be keen on which side you use.

It is important to note that VpCI®-148 VCI paper contains a vapor phase corrosion inhibitor. This component is responsible for diffusing a protective molecular layer over your metal parts to protect them from corrosion.

Metal parts with grease or oil should be packed inside the VpCI®-148 paper with the side that is typed Grease-Resistant facing out. In other words, the corrosion inhibiting side should face in, which is where your greasy metal parts should be.

Conclusion
Consider using the ​​VpCI®-148 VCI paper to package metal parts that need corrosion protection. Not only does this paper excel at protecting against corrosion, but it also stays intact in the presence of aggressive oils and grease.

In addition, this VCI paper is sustainable as its primary source is sustainable forestry. Remember, plastic VCI papers are non-recyclable. You cannot recycle them through normal channels. Additionally, there are governmental restrictions and higher taxes on plastic bags, which makes them uneconomical.

Bottom line: ​​VpCI®-148 VCI paper is the ideal alternative to standard VCI bags. It outperforms plastic VCI bags and is more sustainable. You can learn more about this product by reaching out to Cortec® Corporation.
