Biopad-Biobased Fabric Powered By Nano-VpCI For Corrosion And Surface Protection Of Multi-Metals

BioPad, Patent Pending, is a unique flexible corrosion inhibiting device constructed from 100% biobased non-woven material, containing 66% biobased content. BioPad provides an eco-friendly sustainable packaging option for corrosion inhibition and has been awarded USDA BioPreferredSM designation ( It is specially designed with Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors (VpCI) impregnated throughout the substrate.

This powerful USDA certified biobased product provides up to two times as much corrosion inhibiting action as conventional VCI foams. In addition to being biobased, BioPad contains a high concentration of VpCI® in combination with its thin design, resulting in material reduction by up to 94% in comparison to similar polyurethane foam emitting devices.

BioPad is cost effective, adaptable, and easily applied. Simply placing the correct size BioPad into your package will allow metal items to be protected while leaving them ready for use; no degreasing or coating removal is required, just remove the item from package and put to use.

The product is excellent for protection of ferrous and non-ferrous metals as well as alloys such as: galvanized and carbon steels, copper, brass, aluminum, zinc, solder, silver, etc. The product is free of nitrites and amines contains no isocyanates.

BioPad conforms to NACE Standard TM0-2008 and RP0487-2000, MIL-I-22110C and has been tested by a certified laboratory in accordance with ASTM D-1748 (Humidity Test) and ASTM D 1735 with excellent results. The product is also RoHS compliant.
