Shrink Film

Has your operation ever considered an outdoor warehouse or storage space for parts?UV Shrink Film for Outdoor Storage

Cortec’s VpCI-126 HP UV Shrink Film helps you utilize outdoor spaces by ideally creating an outdoor warehouse. Finding ample storage spaces for parts in warehouses is indeed a significant challenge with most organisations having a space saving agenda ongoing. Consider this example:

An automotive manufacturing company manufactures spare parts for its vehicles and needs storage for these parts before shipment. Without proper storage, these metal parts will certainly undergo corrosion over time.

After manufacturing thousands of spare parts, the company faces insufficient storage spaces. One of the most effective and efficient ways to get more storage without worrying about corrosion is to store parts outside and cover them with VpCI®-126 .

This film has exceptional performance. It offers reliable corrosion protection for parts stored outside a conventional warehouse.

Why You Should Consider Using VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film for Outdoor Storage

The VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film offers exceptional performance for outdoor storage because of its two primary components:

  • Vapor phase corrosion inhibitor (VpCI technology)- this component is responsible for diffusing a molecular layer on the surfaces of metal parts that protects them from corrosion.
  • High-strength resins with UV light stabilizers – helps the film have enough strength to withstand extreme temperature.

The best part about using the VpCI 126 HP UV Shrink Film is that it can protect parts stored outside for up to three years! Additionally, these VCI shrink films are not opaque – you can quickly see through it to identify parts without the hassle of opening the film.

Where to Use VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film

Several environmental conditions make the VpCI®-126 HP UV Film ideal for usage. Some of them include:

  • Outside conventional warehouses for storage of automobile spare parts.
  • Coastal regions (seaside) in preparation for boat and ship parts shipment.
  • Storage for parts that are too big for indoor storage, e.g., inventory valves & insulation for the oil and gas sector.

How to Apply VpCI®-126 HP UV Film

Depending on the size of your parts, the VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film can be supplemented with other VpCI® materials to enhance performance. Some popular VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film supplements are the VpCI emitters, oil additives, and fogging fluid. For example, fogging fluid gives the film additional strength that can certainly withstand harsh weather.

You can opt to cover every single part with this film or multiple parts to create a streamlined unit using the VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film.

Removing this film is easy. Removal can be done when the shrink is no longer needed, leaving parts clean and corrosion-free after considerable storage time.


As storage for parts becomes scarce, consider using the VpCI®-126 HP UV Shrink Film for outdoor storage. It’ll certainly help you maximize storage spaces and keep your parts clean, dry, and corrosion-free.
