Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor Paper products from Cortec are unique in their ability to provide ‘best in class’ corrosion protection for a wide variety of metals. VPCI 149 has been specifically formulated to give enhanced protection to sensitive metals such as copper, aluminium and cast iron.
VPCI 149® has a diverse range of applications and can be used as an effective solution for a variety of packaging needs. The paper itself has a unique feel, as it uses a neutral & natural kraft paper the coating is such that whilst the paper has a ‘soft’ feel it wraps very easily around metal parts. This makes VPCI 149 extremely easy to use.
Furthermore, as this construction does not use saturated paper like cheaper alternatives it maintains a remarkably high tear resistance.
This specification utilizes the renowned vapour phase corrosion inhibitor technology that results in a far superior level of protection to legacy VCI Paper alternatives.
These VPCI corrosion inhibitor molecules provide strong vapour phase protection that makes this an effective solution for protecting void & cavity spaces as well as being good at interleaving.
VPCI 149 paper is made from the highest quality neutral and natural Kraft paper. Both chlorine and bleach free there is no risk of the usual ‘contamination culprits’ found with other VCI paper roll products.
There are no additional chemical concentrations that need to be calculated with VPCI 149. Simply wrap your products in the paper and fold the edges together.
Consider using adhesive tape (or even a heat sealer) to position and seal the Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor Paper in place.
The VPCI inhibitor molecules then evaporate onto the surrounding metal surfaces to offer complete corrosion protection.
VPCI 149 vapour corrosion inhibitor paper can be used for asset protection of sensitive metal goods during transport and storage.
Mostly this paper is used as a Kraft wrap for single item packaging or interleaving, it’s equally as common to use 149 for end closure and shipping tubes as well as larger items that require sheet liners or separation between individual products.

How to apply
- Package products as soon after cleaning as is possible
- Keep dried and free of residual water
- Keep the vapor corrosion inhibitor paper as close to the surface of the product as is practical
- Ensure there is no obstruction or barrier between the VPCI paper and the surface to be protected
- We recommend you use 1 sq ft (0.09m²) of VPCI paper for each 3 sq ft (0.28 m²) of surface area to be protected
- For void spaces and cavities consider using 1 sq ft (0.09m²) of VPCI paper for every 0.5 ft cube of voided spaces.
- If storing into the long term for up to 10 years, consider using in conjunction with one of our barrier foil bags, hermetically (airtight) sealed. For optimal seal quality consider one of our WSZ machines.
