Product Description

Product Description

ZERUST®/EXCOR® ICT®510-PCR30 Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) VCI Film – Advanced Corrosion Protection

The process of post-consumer recycling involves collecting, processing (sorting, washing, grinding, extruding), and reusing materials and products that consumers have used and then discarded. As a result, this approach is vital for reducing waste, conserving resources, and limiting the environmental impact of traditional disposal methods like landfills and incineration. Furthermore, use ZERUST® ICT®510-PCR30 Post Consumer Recycled (PCR) VCI Film to protect metal components and assemblies, cast parts, and more for years. Additionally, for added protection in challenging environments, ZERUST® VCI Film may be used with ZERUST® corrosion inhibitor liquid RPs and VCI emitter products. Lastly, ICT®510-PCR30 VCI Film comes in a formulation that offers protection against ferrous and multimetal materials and is available in VCI bags, gusset liners, tote covers, and other packaging solutions to provide optimal protection.

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.). Consequently, 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.
