Volatile corrosion inhibitor papers for ferrous metals protect and prevent corrosion on iron-based metals. VCI papers work by releasing volatile corrosion inhibitors, which are chemicals that vaporize and form a protective layer on the metal surface, inhibiting the corrosion process.
Protection for Ferrous Metals
VCI papers are highly versatile and protect various ferrous metal applications, such as metal components, machinery parts, tools, automotive parts, and equipment. They are particularly effective in safeguarding these items during shipping, warehousing, or long-term storage.
The corrosion protection offered by VCI papers is long-lasting, but its effectiveness depends on several factors. It includes the type of VCI paper used, the environmental conditions in which the metal is stored, and the duration of storage. Typically, the corrosion inhibitors in VCI papers protect for several months to a few years.
Corrosion Inhibition Packaging
VCI papers are available in convenient sheets or rolls, making them easy to handle and use. They can be wrapped around or interleaved between metal parts, providing an effective barrier against corrosion during storage or transportation.
To ensure the best results when using VCI papers for ferrous metals, starting with clean and dry metal surfaces before wrapping or interleaving them is crucial. Regular inspection and maintenance of the protected metal items are also recommended to ensure continuous corrosion protection.
