Recyclable and non-toxic VpCI-126 EM UV Film combines high strength resins with ultraviolet light stabilizers (UV) and Vapour phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI) Technology. This state-of-the-art film construction provides strong multi-metal protection for parts, equipment and vehicles for up to three years. It enables contact, barrier and vapour-phase protection even in very aggressive outdoor conditions. Unlike some preservation films that rely on white pigments to reflect UV light, VpCI-126 EM UV contains unique inhibitors that protect the polymer from UV exposure and prevents degradation.
This economical film eliminates disposal costs and is ideally suited for transit, staging and lay-up of critical equipment; including equipment with large void spaces, multiple metals and complex geometries. VpCI-126 EM UV Film is safe and improved replacement for harmful conventional rust preventatives such as oils and desiccants. Parts protected with VpCI-126 EM UV films are ready to use with no additional cleaning and/or degreasing necessary, saving customers time and money. VpCI-126 EM UV Film is also transparent, making it easy to identify parts without compromising your package

Metal parts packaged in VpCI-126 EM UV Film receive continuous protection against salt air and humid environments, moisture, aggressive industrial atmospheres and dissimilar metal corrosion. The VpCIs vaporize and condense on all metal surfaces within the enclosed space. VpCIs diffuse to every area of the part, protecting its exterior, as well as void spaces and recessed areas. Equipment is completely protected from corrosion during storage, lay-up and staging as well as during domestic and overseas shipments.

VpCI-126 EM UV Film provides contact, barrier and vapour-phase protection. In conjunction with other Cortec products, provides a total turnkey preservation for long-term storage.
