The bags contain vapour phase corrosion inhibitors that vaporize and form a protective molecular layer on metal substrates inside the film or bag.

Electronics packaging serves a vast market with a critical need: safely bringing innumerable electronic components on their journey from the manufacturer to the electronics assembly plant or end user.

Two of the most serious concerns are electrostatic damage and corrosion. The first can occur simply when putting a component into a standard plastic bag or moving it across the production floor. The other can result as electronics travel through fluctuating temperatures and humidity levels on the way to the assembly plant or end user, leading to condensation and corrosion inside the package.

Cortec’s EcoSonic® VpCI®-125 Static Dissipative Film & Bags tackle both challenges at once.

The bags contain vapour phase corrosion inhibitors that vaporize and form a protective molecular layer on metal substrates inside the film or bag. This invisible protective layer does not interfere with the physical or chemical properties of electronic components. Metals protected include the following:

  • Steel
  • Copper, alloys
  • Aluminum, alloys
  • Brass
  • Solder
  • Nickel

EcoSonic® VpCI®-125 Static Dissipative Film & Bags combine this effective multi-metal corrosion protection with strong static dissipative properties to prevent ESD damage that could cause premature component failure. EcoSonic® VpCI®-125 conforms to the surface resistivity and static decay requirements of MIL-PRF-81705 D (Static Dissipative Packaging Materials). Because of this dual corrosion and ESD protection, EcoSonic® VpCI®-125 Static Dissipative Film & Bags are recommended for packaging items such as:

  • Integrated circuits
  • Printed circuit boards
  • PCB components
  • Telecommunications equipment
  • Other electronics

Electronics manufacturers know that even the slightest discolouration can sometimes be enough to warrant component rejection because of concern for potential failure down the road, so using EcoSonic® VpCI®-125 Bags is a simple and practical insurance plan to guard against the problem of rejected goods. By protecting against the two critical aspects of corrosion and static damage, electronics manufacturers can ship their components with greater peace of mind that their goods will arrive safely at their destination and stand up to the scrutiny and quality demands of their customers.
