VCI Shrink Film

Heavy-duty Shrink Wrap is an easy and economical method for packaging large and irregularly shaped equipment. A barrier against moisture and contaminants, it is commonly used to cover machinery that needs to be transported by rail, flatbed truck, or ocean-bound container. It has heat-sealable and puncture-resistant properties that allow the film to conform to irregular shapes and surfaces. Covering assets with it keeps the contents secure while protecting them from the surrounding environment.

VCI Shrink Film Packaging brings heavy-duty shrink wrap to the next level. The VCI Shrink Film Packaging keeps metals clean, dry, and corrosion-free by adding volatile corrosion inhibitors and UV stabilisers. The durable, flexible, puncture, and tear-resistant VCI Shrink Film packaging conform easily to the shape of the equipment. It has UV-blocking compounds that prevent damage from harmful UV rays.

When metals are wrapped or packaged in our VCI Shrink Film Packaging, the VCI compounds form an invisible protective molecular layer on the surface of the metal. The protective coating is a barrier, preventing moisture, salt, dirt, oxygen, and corrosion-causing materials from depositing directly on the metal. Cleaning is not required, as the VCI will safely dissipate once the part is unwrapped. The metal emerges clean, dry, and ready to use.

The film’s features allow it to be used and stored anywhere, including weather-changing, sunlight-rich outdoor environments. The film replaces less functional non-VCI Shrink Films, tarps and covers or is unsuitable for crating. Excellent sealing properties allow the VCI film to be installed on-site without additional equipment or labour.

The VCI Shrink Film is available in 3 different base materials:

Premium Metal-Guard® VCI Shrink Film Packaging

It is incorporated with corrosion inhibitors in a thick flexible Shrink Film. The well-rounded film keeps ferrous and non-ferrous metals clean, dry, and rust-free. The UVI stabilisation feature provides extended life to the film, making it ideal for outdoor storage and export environments.

Ferro-Film® VCI Shrink Film Packaging

This is an exceptionally rugged Shrink Film with superior corrosion protection for ferrous metals. It is tested compatible with other non-ferrous metals. The UV stabilisation feature provides extended life to the film, making it ideal for outdoor storage and export environments.

Standard VCI Shrink Film Packaging

The general purpose of Shrink Film is to keep the load secure and keeps out dust, dirt, moisture, and contaminants. Not for corrosion protection of metals. This all-purpose durable wrap provides a controlled, dry interior atmosphere for a wide variety of protective transit requirements—ideal protection for flatbed, container shipping, or barge, saving labour and replacing the use of tarps.
