One of the most widely used VpCI® applications is the implementation of corrosion inhibitors in plastics, elastomers, and adhesives. This has been especially strategic in the implementation of contact and vapor phase inhibitors in polyethylene and polypropylene. Cortec® offers a variety of different solutions and masterbatches for this application. Please contact Cortec® directly regarding masterbatch.
