Cortec Corporation has developed the EcoSonic® VpCI®-125 static dissipative film for corrosion and ESD protection on electronics.
Utilising the world renowned VpCI vapor corrosion inhibitor technology
Electronics are now an integral part of most industries and people’s lives. As such, newly manufactured or even used electronics require a corrosion prevention method to be in place that addresses both the culprit electrostatic charges and subesequent corrosion problems they cause.
Electrostatic discharge and corrosion are the leading concerns when transporting electronic components from the manufacturer to the end user.
Electrostatic discharges are usually generated when two insulating materials rub each other. In this case, when packaging your electronics in a standard plastic bag, the bag might rub itself against a plastic component of the electronics.
On the other hand, the primary cause of corrosion on electronic components is mainly the presence of moisture. In addition, fluctuating temperatures may also contribute to corrosion, especially when transporting these electronic components.
It, therefore, means that looking for a permanent solution for both static charges and corrosion is of importance. That’s where the EcoSonic® VpCI®-125 static dissipative film (or bags) gets into the picture.
Importance of Using EcoSonic® VpCI-125
This ESD anti static film is essential to protect your electronic components from ESD interference and the corrosion that results from it. Remember, even the slightest corrosion on metallic parts of these electronic components or discoloration on plastic can warrant rejection.
End users are careful of the products they buy, and any form of anomaly is considered a potential electronic component failure.
Using the EcoSonic® VpCI 125 static dissipative packaging films or bags can help you overcome such setbacks. Additionally, you’ll have the peace of mind you desire when shipping your electronic components overseas – they will reach the end user without any corrosion.
Why Using the EcoSonic® VpCI®-125 Film/Bag is Beneficial
The EcoSonic® VpCI®-125 static dissipative film is highly beneficial and economical with regard to corrosion protection and electrostatic charges on electronics.
The film contains a vapor phase corrosion inhibitor, forming a molecular layer of corrosion protection over the electronic components. The film does so by diffusing and condensing this molecular layer over the electronic parts.
The best part about VpCI is that it does not affect the functionality or performance of the electronics. It is also an effective multi-metal corrosion inhibitor, protecting ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
This film further protects electronic components from electrostatic discharge because it has surface resistivity and static decay features. In other words, it is a static dissipative packaging material.
In addition, the packaging film or bags do not contain harmful Prop 65 chemicals.
Where to Use the EcoSonic® VpCI®-125 Film or Bag
Since the EcoSonic® VpCI®-125 static dissipative film is highly effective in the prevention of ESD and corrosion, consider using them to package the following:
- Electric and electronic components
- PCB and its components
- Integrated circuits
- Telecommunications equipment
- Circuit boards, etc.
It is important to note that this packaging film does not alter electronic components’ physical or chemical properties. Cortec® produces this film in different shapes and sizes primarily for the packaging convenience of different electronic components.
Storing or transporting electronics can be challenging, especially because ESD and corrosion significantly affect electronic components. However, using the EcoSonic® VpCI®-125 packaging film or bag has proven effective.
This film offers a practical guard against corrosion and electrostatic discharge, guaranteeing that your electronics are safe. The film does not contain Prop 65 chemicals that harm your health.
