Cortec gets electronics packed in VpCI-125 ESD bags

Cortec Advanced Films has been producing VpCI films held to tight quality standards in its onsite QC lab. These films offer a method for corrosion protection of metal components being stored or shipped in uncontrolled environments. Cortec also offers protection for sensitive electronics in the form of VpCI-125 static dissipative films and bags.

Cortec’s VpCI-125 enhances electronic packaging by combining Cortec’s contact and vapor-phase corrosion protection with ESD protection. The electronic can be kept in “as new” condition inside the bag. This replaces complicated methods of the past for applying desiccants and vacuum packaging and is able to pack items like integrated circuits, PCB components, telecommunications equipment, electronic and electrical panels, electronic enclosures, and electric car components.

VpCI-125 releases Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors that form a monomolecular protective layer on metal substrates within the package and do not interfere with the physical or chemical properties of electronic components. According to the company, VpCI-125 does not affect optical properties or plastics used in the electronics industry, and can be used to protect multi-metals including steel, copper (and alloys), aluminium (and alloys), brass, solder, and nickel.

VpCI-125 is the commercial equivalent of MIL-PRF-81705 D, displaying a surface resistivity between 105 and 1011Ω and a static decay rate of <2 seconds.  The surface resistivity also conforms to the requirements of IEC-61340-5-1 for anti-stat film properties.

With VpCI-125, Cortec aims to become an important player in the growth of the electric car industry, supplying protective packaging on short notice for shipment of sensitive electronic components. As the demand for these and other electronics increases, Cortec affirmed its commitment to continue to be the top-quality supplier to meet this important need, so electronics producers can store and ship their goods with confidence.
