Cortec Corporation‘s Europan plant, EcoCortec, just launched EcoSonic® ESD 3D Hoods powered by Nano-VpCI®. High-tech hoods combine patented, VpCI® technology with antistatic properties. This film incorporates the latest developments in packaging industry with effective corrosion protection. Packaging the product in VpCI® 3D Hoods will protect metal parts from all types of corrosion for up to 2 years. Hoods will provide environmentally safe, recyclable packaging option for objects that need quality corrosion protection whether in storage or transport.
EcoSonic® ESD 3D Hoods offer numerous advantages: Cortec’s customers can return their waste material back to Croatian EcoCortec plant, where it is then recycled and used for manufacturing a new product. EcoSonic® Hoods will eliminate the degreasing or coating removal that is usually required and therefore enable time and financial savings. EcoSonic® ESD 3D Hoods powered by Nano-VpCI® are transparent, making it easy to identify parts.
They are non – toxic and do not contain free amines, phosphates, or halogen-based materials. Hoods will protect metal objects of various sizes depending on the customer’s needs. They contain antistatic properties to immediately reduce or eliminate static buildup as long as the hoods are in use independent of the presence of humidity. Metal parts packaged in EcoSonic® ESD 3D Hoods powered by Nano-VpCI® receive continuous protection against salt, excessive humidity, condensation, moisture, aggressive industrial atmospheres, and dissimilar metal corrosion. The VpCI’s vaporize and then condense to metal surfaces in the enclosed package. VpCI® molecules will reach every area of packaged part, protecting its exterior as well as hard-to-reach interior surfaces. EcoSonic® ESD 3D Hoods are manufactured in Croatia’s plant, making them ready available for shipments to Cortec’s European customers but also for overseas shipments worldwide.
RECYCLABLE & ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS
EcoSonic® ESD 3D Hoods powered by Nano-VpCI® received approval from a leading institute regarding the recycling and disposal of packaging materials containing Cortec® proprietary chemistry. They are typically made with recycled content; further improving the environmental footprint of the product. EcoCortec’s circular packaging solutions incorporate all the principles of the circular economy. The company has been one of the first in Europe to implement a European-wide initiative to collect and recycle used VpCI® films and bags. Within the “Plastic Recycling Project “ , EcoCortec’s customers send their waste material back to the Croatian plant, where it is then completely recycled and used for manufacturing a new product. EcoCortec® reprocesses VpCI® film scrap and incorporates the “repro” back into the virgin film at up to 20 percent, a level at which the company can ensure quality of the new product. “Our mission of circling our processes from manufacturing to disposal is now a reality. Our European plant as well as our American plants have launched film reprocessing programs to allow our customers to send their used VpCI® film back to our manufacturing facilities. This way we created a win-win-win situation for customers, the environment and for us as a manufacturer. Our clients do not have to pay large sums of money for disposal anymore , they can send their used VpCI® bags and films back to our plants”, says Boris Miksic, CEO of Cortec Corporation. This way, he adds, “both customers and manufacturers demonstrate environmental responsibility and reduce their carbon footprint in the process.”
The product conforms to NACE Standard RP 0487-2000 and ESD Properties conform to Mil-PRF-81705, IEC 61340-5-1-
