Cortec®has launched a revolutionary “anti-corrosion“ pill called Cor-Pak® tablets. By using this little, super-economical, yet strong preventative, conventional expensive methods of applying and removing coatings can now be eliminated.

Cor-Paktablets provide an extremely efficient dry method of protecting metals within a package. Using Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI®) technology, these easy-to-use tablets provide more than two years of premium multi-metal corrosion protection. Just a few tablets need to be dropped into a bag, box or package. Powered by Nano-VpCI®, the tablets are nitrite, phosphate and silicate free, making them safe to use and apply.

After the VpCI vaporizes, it will attach to all metal surfaces, reaching even recessed areas. The protective monomolecular layer does not need to be removed prior to processing or operation. If opening the package disturbs the layer, it will be replenished by continuous vapor protection upon reclosing. The VpCI layer does not interfere with the operation of electrical and electronic components.

Cor-Paktablets are designed to protect products, component or assemblies when packaged in corrugated boxes, plastic wrap or bags, and metal, plastic, or wood containers. They will also protect from salt water during overseas transport. Protected parts can be used immediately.

The tablets will protect up to 7.1 liters (0.25 cubic feet) of enclosed space per tablet. They are easily inserted in packaging by manual or automated systems. No spraying, wiping, dipping, surface preparation or regeneration is required.

Additional applications include:

  • Completed assemblies, parts, and components;
  • Sensitive electrical, electronic equipment and controls;
  • Marine and commercial electronic equipment;
  • Interior of lighting fixtures;
  • Motors and mechanical controls;
  • Tools, spare parts and components;
  • Nuts, bolts, nails, screws and fasteners.

 Cor-Pak tablets conform to NACE Standard RP0487-2000, MIL-I-22110C, and are RoHS compliant.
