BRANOcop (Corrosion Protection Papers)
BRANOcop corrosion protection papers act in accordance with the VCI principle (Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors) i.e. they release small amounts of volatile protective substances. A protective atmosphere is built up in packaging containing this paper, providing reliable protection against corrosion for metal components. BRANOcop paper works on contact and from a distance.
Scope of protection
Copper, brass, bronze and nickel. Care should be taken with lead, magnesium, tungsten and molybdenum.
Protection duration: Up to 3 years depending on the climatic conditions and how tightly sealed (leak-proof) the packaging is.
Metal components can be protected against corrosion during the transport and storage process by packaging them together with BRANOcop papers (either by wrapping them in the paper, by lining the container or by using them as a partitioning paper). The distance between the BRANOcop paper and the metal will depend on the packaging volume and the amount of time needed for a protective atmosphere to build up. As a rule of thumb, the amount of time needed for a fully protective atmosphere to build up at a distance of 12 cm is 24 hours. The more tightly sealed (leak-proof) the packaging, the more long-lasting is the protection.
BRANOcop corrosion protection paper does away with the need to oil and grease. And the protected metal components are always ready for immediate use, because this system provides corrosion protection and simple, environmentally-friendly handling in one.
The protected materials should be kept away from direct contact with wood or acidic materials. It is also important to make sure that relative atmospheric humidity is kept low and that there is no atmospheric contamination (make sure that there is no wood in the packaging).
BRANOcop is to be used exclusively for the stipulated applications (packaging/preservation of metal parts susceptible to damage). We accept no liability for consequential damage resulting from improper use.
All the standard BRANOcop paper types are smooth, have differing basic weights and are active on both sides. In addition to this, there are a number of special designs:
Rolls, sheets, bags, covers and punch cut-outs.
Cool and dry, away from direct sunlight. Maximum storage time in the original packaging: 3 years.
BRANOcop is materially recyclable. It is marked with the recycling symbol. Since the thermal value is > 11,000 kJ/kg the material may be introduced into an energy recovery process. If burning is neither technically possible nor feasible, the material may be disposed of or burnt with domestic waste according to local authority regulations.
BRANOcop papers are not regarded as being hazardous substances according to hazardous substance regulations. It should be handled in a well-ventilated space; one should not eat or drink while working with it, nor should foods be stored in the work area where it is used, and the hands and face should be washed after use. Further information can be found in our Material Safety Data Sheet.
