General Bio Wrap Cortec Creped cushioning package protection paper wrapping for metals

New biodegradable crepe paper from Cortec provides corrosion protection, tensile strength and pliability as a cushioning material.

St. Paul, Minn—Cortec Corporation has released its new Bio Wrap Creped—powered by Nano-VpCI, a corrosion inhibiting paper in the industry. The company’s Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibiting (VpCI) technology has revolutionized the way metals are protected in an enclosed package.

Cortec is a global leader in innovative, environmentally responsible VpCI and MCI (migrating corrosion inhibitors) corrosion control technologies for packaging, metalworking, construction, electronics, water treatment, oil & gas, and other industries.

This environmentally safe, non-toxic, biodegradable crepe paper combines superior multi-metal corrosion protection with the proven benefits of crepe paper—the paper creping increases tensile strength while adding a high degree of pliancy.

Bio Wrap Creped paper provides cushioning and surface protection for wrapped parts and ‘pooling’ effect for oiled parts, and according to the manufacturer, is cost-efficient and environmentally far more advantageous compared to bubble films, packaging peanuts and other cushioning materials.

The easy-to-use paper does not contain any nitrites, phosphates or silicates. It is effective against the most aggressive environments including humidity, SO2, H2S and galvanic corrosion from dissimilar metals.

Cortec says that Bio Wrap eliminates the need for a variety of papers for the different types of metals and alloys which makes it an economical choice.

Bio Wrap is fully recyclable and re-pulpable, meaning it can be recycled into various other types of paper. It can also be ‘re-pulped’ or made into or mixed with pulp to make new paper products.

This paper is excellent for protection of products for storage and shipment in a wide variety of ways: end closures for shipping tubes, insert strips for recessed areas in large packages and as sheet liners or separators between products.

Typical applications are: metal producing, metal forging and die casting, metalworking, finished products, electrical and electronic components, controls, etc.

BioWrap conforms to NACE Standards TM0208-2008, RP0487-2000, military specification MIL-P-3420E, TAPPI-410 test method and is RoHS-compliant.
