A copper company needed to protect copper tubing from corrosion during overseas shipment. Their existing method of corrosion protection was to wrap tubing in basic stretch wrap (no corrosion inhibitors) along with desiccant. They began using Cortec® Cor-Pak® VpCI® Stretch Film instead and found that it provided better protection for up to six weeks in marine environments. A deciding factor in the choice of Cor-Pak® VpCI® Stretch Film was that the copper tubes could be used immediately after unwrapping—no cleaning or degreasing required!
