Masking Covers & Component Covers

Elasticated masking and component covers protect hard-to-protect parts from corrosion, dust and dirt when in storage or when being transported

Whatever the best packaging solution is to protect your products, we can develop, trial and supply it for you.

VCI masking covers

Elasticated VCI masking covers are simple, quick and easy to put on:

  • Engine manufacturers use VCI masking covers to protect areas on engines that are more sensitive to corrosion; this includes flywheels and diff-locks.
  • Car manufacturers use specialist VCI paper/polythene laminated masking covers to protect brake discs from corrosion and brake judder. The covers remain on until pre-dealer assembly where they are easily removed without taking the wheel off.
