January 27, 2022 (press release) –

We are proud to announce that Cortec Laboratories have developed new specialty film for electronics, munitions, fertilizers and several other industrial applications where static discharge could result in dangerous packaging conditions. EcoSonic VpCI Static Dissipative Stretch Film meets the anti-static  requirements under MIL-PR  F-81705 E in the form of a high performance stretch film with multi-metal corrosion inhibitors and ESD protection! The poor electrical conductivity of plastic film requires special attention in packaging applications where static discharges are unacceptable. Pressure and friction during stretch-wrapping applications will produce static discharges. These can be quite significant and cannot be dissipated by  grounding. The film will  provide excellent  multi-metal corrosion protection and  eliminate normal stretch film static as well as costly barrier packaging. With superior holding force of the film package integrity and appearance will be improved.  This stretch film is fully recyclable and safe to handle and apply. EcoSonic VpCI Static Dissipative Stretch Film does not interfere with electrical, optical, or mechanical surface properties.

Some of the benefits are:

* Meets static decay requirements per MIL-PRF-81705 E

* Provides multi-metal corrosion protection

* Eliminates normal stretch film static

* Eliminates costly barrier packaging

* Fully recyclable in applicable facilities

* Safe to handle

* Does not interfere with electrical, optical, or mechanical surface properties

EcoSonic VpCI Static Dissipative Stretch Film can be used on standard manual and automatic stretch wrapping equipment. It is ideal for packaging and unitising of loads in any application that dictates the absence of electrical shock, such as the following:

* Computers and telecommunications equipment

* Laboratory instruments

* Electrical panels/components

* Marine, aerospace, and military instruments

* Medical devices sensitive to electrical interference

* Munitions

* Loads of gun powders and finished explosives

* Volatile products in controlled environments

* Loads in fertilizer plants where nitrites and nitrates are present

EcoSonic VpCI Static Dissipative Stretch Film delivers puncture resistance and load holding, which allows a user to down-gauge, contain aggressive loads, and produce a better package at reduced cost.
