Embrace Sustainability and Superior Protection with ZERUST's New 30% Post-Consumer Recycled VCI Film

ZERUST is excited to introduce the latest innovation in corrosion prevention technology – ZERUST®/EXCOR® ICT®510-PCR30 Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) VCI Film. This groundbreaking product not only upholds their commitment to sustainability but also ensures the unparalleled protection of your valuable metal components during shipping and storage.

Introducing ZERUST® ICT®510-PCR30 PCR VCI Film

ZERUST’s new VCI film comprises 30% post-consumer recycled polyethylene, impregnated with the proven efficacy of ZERUST® Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors (VCI). This strategic blend guarantees a robust defense against corrosion, safeguarding your metal assets in even the most challenging environments. The PCR process reflects ZERUST’s dedication to environmental stewardship. By repurposing materials that have reached the end of their consumer life cycle, they are actively contributing to waste reduction, resource conservation, and minimizing the environmental impacts associated with landfill disposal and incineration.

Enhanced Protection & Sustainability

ZERUST® ICT®510-PCR30 VCI Film is specifically designed to shield ferrous materials, offering versatile packaging solutions including VCI bags, gusset liners, tote covers, and more. For heightened protection, this film can be seamlessly integrated with ZERUST’s corrosion inhibitor liquids and VCI emitters, creating a comprehensive corrosion prevention system.

Commitment to a Greener Future

At ZERUST®/EXCOR®, they are devoted to pioneering solutions that promote both operational excellence and environmental responsibility. By choosing our ICT®510-PCR30 VCI Film, you’re not just protecting your assets; you’re also making a decisive step towards a more sustainable and eco-friendly industrial practice.

Carbon Savings

Replacing 100 metric tons (100,000 kg) of conventional polyethylene plastic VCI packaging with ICT®510-PCR30 results in a remarkable carbon reduction of 26,000 kg (57,320 lbs.). This achievement is equivalent to*:

  • 95-ton reduction in CO2 emissions for every 100 metric tons.
  • CO2 emissions reduction is equivalent to 21 cars driven annually for every 100 metric tons.
  • Reduction in CO2 emissions equivalent to the consumption of 10,727 Liters of gasoline for every 100 metric tons.
  • Reduction in CO2 emissions equivalent to the carbon sequestered by 1,576 tree seedlings grown for 10 years for every 100 tons.

Why Choose ZERUST®?

As a leader in corrosion prevention and rust protection solutions, ZERUST® recognizes the importance of environmental responsibility and has taken significant steps to implement post-consumer recycling technology across our VCI poly solutions.
