Neither flame, nor UV, salt air and humid environments, moisture or aggressive industrial atmospheres can harm the parts wrapped in Cortec’s new MilCorr FR VpCI Shrink Film. 

Cortec’s Milcorr line of products – that includes packaging, surface preparation, coating, electronic, rubber protection, water and oil additive products (inter alia) -  is already military grade. Milcorr is used by militaries throughout the world.

Let's assume your packaging demands are not as stringent as those of the world's military bodies.

New MilCorr FR VpCI Shrink Film takes protection beyond anything the military has used before regardless. It is composed to maintain the integrity of the film itself as well as the parts packaged within. It reduces costs of protection and extends asset life.

The heavy duty film’s superior mechanical properties feature Cortec’s multi-metal vapor phase corrosion inhibitors (VpCI), flame retardant additives, and UV (ultra violet) inhibitors.

The safe, multifunctional film can replace conventional rust preventatives such as oils and desiccants while extending equipment life. Parts protected with MilCorr FR VpCI Shrink Film are ready to use with no additional cleaning and/or degreasing necessary. 

Metal parts packaged in MilCorr FR VpCI Shrink Film receive continuous multi-metal, contact-, barrier and vapor-phase protection against salt air and humid environments, moisture, aggressive industrial atmospheres, and dissimilar metal corrosion.  The VCIs vaporise and condense on all metal surfaces within the enclosed space, and diffuse to every area of the part within - protecting its exterior as well as void spaces and recessed areas.

It provides complete product storage protection during domestic and overseas shipments, eliminates rust and delivers the protected object ready to use.

It is particularly useful for the mothball preservation of industrial equipment, export packaging of expensive larger equipment, heavy equipment covers, recreational vehicle (boats, snowmobiles, etc.) preservation and pallet shrouds as well as military vehicle and equipment preservation.  

MilCorr FR VpCI Shrink Film conforms to military specification MIL-B-22019D, NACE Standards RP0487-2000, and TMO-2008. It passes NFPA 701-2010 “Fire Test for Flame Propagation of Textiles and Films”, Test #2-Flat Sheet Specimens.
