VpCI® Impregnated Foam Tapes With Adhesive Backing

Powerful corrosion protection for delicate electrical and electronic equipment!

Complex electronic and electrical components are particularly susceptible to damage by corrosive environments because of its small size and manufacturing processes. Corrosion that occurs during shipping, storage and field operations causes expensive failures but with the right approach can be stopped at any step from manufacturing to final installation.

Ecosonic® line is a line of products especially created by Cortec® Corporation for corrosion protection of most sensitive equipment and parts. EcoSonic® products significantly extend equipment life and reduce the cost of expensive repairs.
