VCI packaging films offer corrosion protection of metal products during storage and transportation. These films are designed to release volatile corrosion inhibitors into the surrounding environment, forming a protective layer on the metal surfaces. The corrosion protection films, made from polyethene or polypropylene, are impregnated or coated with volatile corrosion inhibitors that vaporize and migrate through the air, coming into contact with metal surfaces to provide corrosion protection.
By wrapping the metal corrosion prevention film around metal parts or placing it in close proximity to components, the rust prevention film releases corrosion inhibitors into the air. These inhibitors then create a thin, invisible protective layer on the metal surfaces, forming a barrier that prevents moisture and oxygen from reaching the metal and causing corrosion.
VCI films safeguard a wide range of metals, including ferrous metals such as steel and non-ferrous metals like aluminium, copper, and brass. They achieve this by inhibiting the electrochemical reactions responsible for corrosion on these metal surfaces. Available in various forms, such as bags, sheets, or stretch wraps. Volatile corrosion inhibitors can be easily wrapped around individual metal items or used to construct larger protective enclosures for bulk storage. The metal preservation film films can be heat-sealed or taped, ensuring a tight seal and providing optimal protection against corrosion.
