VCI Film Metal-Guard®

The VCI Packaging Film Metal-Guard® is a flexible & heavy-duty, heat-sealable VCI foil barrier material. It is one of the market’s most effective protective packaging solutions that protect against corrosive damage caused by humidity, moisture, oxygen, salt spray, aromas, grease, and other airborne contaminants. It is often used to prevent corrosion on items during long-term storage or shipment and where conventional methods would be difficult or costly.

It is made with Mil-PRF-131J QPL lamination composed of biaxially oriented nylon, aluminium foil, and a heavy polyethene sealant layer. The metal-guard film features a proprietary VCI formulation incorporated into the PE sealant, creating an air and moisture-proof combination proven to protect packaged metals against corrosion.

The VCI Packaging Film Metal-Guard® is essentially a two-in-one barrier foil that removes the need for wrapping metal parts with VCI Packaging film and another layer of laminated barrier foil. The metal-guard film improves the packaging efficiency of metal parts, reducing labour needs and costs. Typical applications include wrapping or crating large machinery for export or wrapping smaller pieces for long-term storage.

VCI Packaging Film Metal-Guard® Light

The VCI Packaging Film Metal-Guard® Light is a light-duty, nylon/aluminium foil/polyethene structure with a unique ferrous metal corrosion inhibitor in the PE film layer. With an excellent sealing characteristics, this makes it ideal for hand-sealing in the field. Typical applications include wrapping large machinery or metal components for export when crating is not used. The VCI Metal-Guard Light Film also eliminates the need to cover metal parts with VCI Packaging Films and another layer of laminated barrier foil.
