VCI is a corrosion inhibiting chemical used to protect untreated ferrous metals against corrosion. We impregnate it into packaging products, and used correctly VCI will prevent your metal parts from corroding. It is a long established and proven packing product that has been used throughout the automotive and steel industries for over 80 years.
Our VCI is 100% safe to use and undetectable on your metals. Our new Biotect™ VCI is nitrite free, is FDA approved for food use, and is the safest VCI available to handle and pack with anywhere in the world.
When storing or transporting bare metal parts for any length of time. VCI packs protect metal parts from corrosion during work-in-progress, storage or transit. VCI packaging replaces messy oil or grease coatings that have to be washed off later: simply putting parts in our VCI bags, or wrapping parts in our VCI film or paper sheet, stops rust forming on your metals and this means clean parts can be delivered trackside, ready to use whenever and however you need them.
VCI packs slowly release corrosion inhibiting compounds within a sealed airspace. These chemicals actively prevent surface corrosion by forming a microscopic, undetectable layer on top of the metal inside the packs, which blocks the electro-chemical process that creates rust – VCI passivates the electron flow between the anodic and cathodic areas on metal surfaces. VCI offers total protection on all metal surfaces, it saturates the air inside the bag and penetrates into crevices, slots and otherwise unreachable areas of the metal parts.
Yes, metal parts packed into VCI films need to be dry, free from corrosion and packed at room temperature. Contact us today for more specific advice on how to pack your parts.
VCI bags, stored indoors, out of direct sunlight, in their original wrapping will be suitable to use for up to 2 years.
Used correctly VCI products will protect the metals inside from corrosion for up to five years. Contact us for specific information regarding VCI protection.
