EcoCorr® – World’s First Certified Industrial Compostable Bags and Film

Cortec® Corporation’s primary goal is to make the world a more sustainable (“greener”) place by creating compostable bags and films.

Compostable Bags

Its European branch, EcoCortec®, has recently developed the world’s first industrial compostable bags and film – EcoCorr®.

EcoCorr® uses nano-VpCI® corrosion inhibitors, which is available commercially as a compostable bag or packaging film. It inhibits corrosion by using its vapor phase corrosion inhibitor. In addition, it also prevents contact with dissimilar metals and blocks moisture and grease.

The best part about using EcoCorr® is that it will not start composing when it is still in use.

It will only start composting when it is in a composting environment because it is shelf stable. It takes three months for the entire film or bag to disintegrate.

Developing these industrial-approved compostable bags and packaging films took scientists from EcoCortec® several years. The packaging bags and film are TÜV Austria-certified.

EcoCorr® Compostable Bags or Films Outstanding Features


Here are some of the best features that the EcoCorr® has:

  • It is the world’s first industrial-approved compostable bag for packaging with a vapor phase corrosion inhibitor. In addition, the EcoCorr® also protects different parts from minor physical abuses such as scratches and abrasion.
  • It is a multipurpose corrosion protection film or bag that can protect both ferrous and non-ferrous metals from corrosion.
  • Industrially-certified TÜV Austria meets the industrial compostability of the EN 13432.
  • Meets German (TL-8135-002) and NACE (TM0208-2018) legal protection from corrosion.
  • Ideal for replacing plastic bags that are not economically friendly.
  • An outstanding corrosion prevention performance is better than conventional plastic VCI bags and films.


Why You Should Consider Using Compostable Bags Over Conventional VCI Films
The most crucial reason a user should shift from conventional VCI films to EcoCorr® compostable bags is its environmental sustainability. Traditional VCI papers are inorganic, meaning they are not biodegradable and pollute the environment.

In addition, EcoCorr® packaging film or bags are multipurpose – ideal for different industrial applications. Consider real-life examples of companies that have used this EcoCorr® compostable certified product.

Different commercial companies have tested ecoCorr® film or packaging bags, and their performance was outstanding. One car manufacturing company in India explicitly said there was no damage to critical car parts.

The EcoCorr® compostable bags kept the parts clean and dry during shipping. Another leading car manufacturing company started using EcoCorr® over polyethylene VCI films because of their environmental sustainability. It helps significantly reduce plastic usage.

By reducing the amount of plastic used in commercial settings, you also get to reduce the amount of waste you handle. In addition, EcoCorr® is globally available.

Conclusion
EcoCorr® is shelf-stable. The compostable bag will start degenerating only in a compostable environment. It takes the compostable film or bag three months to fully degenerate.

It would be best for any user to start using EcoCorr® over conventional polyethylene VCI packaging papers.

Doing so helps make the world a “greener” place for our fragile environment. It is also economical as it reduces the usage of plastics, meaning that it reduces the amount of waste material to be handled.
