EcoCortec® Plant: Stretch Hoods powered by Nano VpCI®

Stretch hoods are among the fastest-growing packaging techniques for the shipment of palletized goods. In
recognition of this trend, Croatian bioplastics plant EcoCortec ® has designed specialty plastomer material
solutions to further revolutionize the stretch hood packaging market. Cor-Pak® Stretch Hoods powered
by Nano VpCI® are the ultimate high-performance stretch hood films for corrosion protection of ferrous
and non-ferrous metals. The film is suitable for industrial use to stabilize loads and ensure pallet integrity
for efficient packaging and delivery. This film is co-extruded using state-of-the-art resins, offering superior strength and stretch characteristics as well as multi-metal corrosion inhibiting properties that only VpCI® Technology can deliver.



UV stable and recyclable Cor-Pak® Stretch Hoods powered by Nano VpCI® deliver puncture resistance and load holding, which allow a user to down-gauge, contain aggressive loads and produce a better package at reduced cost. The combination of enhanced polyethylene resins with VpCI® Technology makes Cor-Pak® Stretch Hoods powered by Nano VpCI® the most advanced corrosion inhibiting stretch film available today on the market. Cor-Pak® Stretch Hoods can easily be recycled and are compatible with commercially available manual and automatic stretch wrapping equipment. Cor-Pak® Stretch Hoods meet German TL 8135-002 and NACE TM0208-2018 standards for corrosion protection.

Hoods can be tailored per customer request. The stretch hoods are elastic (788.4% elongation at break), sealable and show outstanding toughness. Cor-Pak® Stretch Hoods powered by Nano VpCI® can be used in the fast-growing market for stretch hood film packaging techniques. They allow industries to quickly and securely wrap and contain heavy loads while protecting metal components from corrosion.
