At Cortec® Advanced Films we are continually improving and expanding our facilities, equipment, processes, and ourselves to meet our customers' needs and expectations for consistent high quality film and bags delivered on time.
Cortec® Advanced Films has a world-class laboratory that can perform testing compliant to Military Specifications (MIL-STD 3010) and ASTM standards (Section 8 Series D). The laboratory is located on-site at its blown film extrusion facility. All VpCI® film batches are tested for Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI®). A Fourier Transform - Infrared (FT-IR) Spectrometer is used to examine VpCI® concentrations. Moisture levels are tested by Karl Fischer analysis for any VpCI® master batch production. Mechanical properties and coefficients of friction are measured with Instron precision instruments. Water vapor transmission rates and static decay rates for Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) films are determined using desiccant chambers designed for 0% RH.
ESD films are manufactured in compliance with Military Specification MIL-PRF-81705D. Each ESD order is tested on-site for static decay and surface resistivity. Static decay testing complies with Federal Standard 101 Method 4046. Surface Resistivity exceeds ESD S 11.11 specifications.
Custom VpCI® films are developed and tested on site. Specific strengths, tear resistance, puncture resistance, tackiness, and slip qualities can be formulated according to the customer's needs.
Our printing department can provide some of the most appealing packaging available. We can print materials from 4" (10 cm) up to 44" (112 cm) wide, one to three colors. By using varying halftones we can obtain numerous shading effects as well.
In our converting department the film is made into bags in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, and styles for packaging foods, equipment, hardware, spare parts, or just about anything you require. Specialized tooling enables us to manufacture unique bags such as V-sealed contour, or other custom designs. Many different shapes and sizes of holes can be punched for venting, hanging, or carrying products. We are well equipped to manufacture the hem reinforced handle, draw tape handle, and the popular bag-on-roll and zip-lock bags. This department solves packaging requirements with creativity and experience.
