EcoCortec has opened its first bioplastics and anticorrosion film plant in Croatia. Plant management finalized the big expansion project last year with the construction of a new facility, tripling production capacity.
EcoCortec manufactures innovative vapor-phase corrosion inhibitor (VpCI) films. Located in Croatia’s Baranja region on a 10,000-square-meter site, the plant offers complete converting, extruding and printing capabilities.
In addition to a state-of-the-art E5 extrusion line, the plant is equipped with side- and bottom-weld converting machines, a film rewinder and a recycling system. EcoCortec is committed to using environmentally safe technologies and taking a responsible approach toward the community. The company’s Eco Film and Eco Works products offer a certified biodegradable alternative to polyethylene (PE) films and bags while offering performance characteristics that, it says, are superior to both low- and high-density PE films.
EcoCortec has a history of cooperating with scientific institutions and universities as attested by new product development, research papers, and participation in and organization of scientific and educational seminars. A continuous research and innovation approach combined with ecological awareness are among the reasons that EcoCortec has become a leader in the corrosion protection industry, said the company.
