Film protects products against corrosion

2nd October 2017

Cortec’s EcoWeave is a durable tarp-like film that protects heavy raw metal materials and finished products against corrosion. EcoWeave is made at Cortec Coated Products (CCP) in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. High tech Nordson melters and slot die eliminate the need for dryers, resulting in big energy savings. A 100 percent solids coating process eliminates solvent emissions. The new process also lets Cortec provide more options to customers.

In the past, Cortec has relied on outsourcing to make a few stock sizes of EcoWeave. This system works until users require custom details that are difficult to deliver with standard stock. With its new EcoWeave® coating capabilities, Cortecsays it  will be better able to serve the specialized needs of users by providing custom sizes or filling smaller orders with a shorter lead time.

Made from the same type of woven polyolefin film used to wrap lumber, EcoWeave is extremely durable, yet lightweight and versatile. EcoWeave offers a combination of tear resistance, durability, and VpCI chemistry that work together to provide protection against harsh outdoor elements, physical damage, and corrosion.
