What is VCI stretch film?

What is VCI stretch film?

Construction. Safepack VCI Stretch film is a specially designed wrap film that protects metal parts from all types of corrosion, direct contact, and vapour action. The stretch and cling material is especially useful for protecting larger objects.

What is VCI packaging?

VCI (Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor) Volatile corrosion inhibitor is a mixture of special chemicals that constantly vaporize and create gases which have anti – corrosion properties. These vapors form a very thin protective film layer around the metal surface and prevent the metal from the corrosion action.

How does VCI film work?

How does VCI work? VCI molecules attach themselves to a metal surface to form an invisible, thin film, possibly only a few molecules or even one molecule thick, to protect metal from attack. ARMOR VCI products can work for several years to prevent corrosion from occurring on the metal surface.

What is VCI foil?

The term VCI (Volatile Chemical Inhibitors) stands for the volatile substances having a characteristic sublimation directly from the solid state to gas. These molecular substances create a protective film that protects against corrosion on metal surfaces.

What is VCI paper?

VCI paper (we call it ARMOR WRAP® VCI paper) is a clean, dry packaging material designed for the protection of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. When metal parts are wrapped or enclosed in VCI paper, VCIs activate and fill up the vapor space inside the packaging.

What is a precipitating inhibitor?

Precipitation inducing inhibitors are film forming compounds that have a general action over the metal surface, blocking both anodic and cathodic sites indirectly. Precipitation inhibitors are compounds that cause the formation of precipitates on the surface of the metal, thereby providing a protective film.

Is VCI toxic?

High doses, or 100% pure samples of VCI compounds in raw form, when inhaled, ingested, or contacted by humans, can be toxic if over exposure takes place for a prolonged period. However, in packaging applications, the products are built-in as coatings or compounds.

What is VCI shrink wrap?

VCI shrink wrap is a “Volatile Corrosion Inhibiting” shrink wrap. It contains additives that will prevent corrosion on both ferrous and non-ferrous metals, and electrical connections, for periods of up to 2 years.

Is VCI paper safe?

When applied in protective packaging products – paper, shrink wrap, paint coatings, desiccants, etc. – VCI compound concentrations typically do not contain a high enough dosage to cause serious harm.

Which is the best brand of VCI film?

At Cortec ®, we make premium VCI (vapor corrosion inhibitor) films and bags under the VpCI ® brand name—a distinguishing mark of quality in the VCI packaging world.

What happens when you remove VCI packaging film?

As VpCI ® molecules vaporize out of the film and diffuse throughout the package, they also form a protective molecular layer on metal surfaces not in direct contact with the film. When the packaging is removed, the VpCI ® molecules simply vaporize and float away.

What kind of film does Cortec VPCI use?

Cortec ® VpCI ® films and bags contain Cortec’s proprietary blend of Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors to protect packaged metals from becoming rusty or corroded. Cortec ® VpCI ® films protect metals both through direct contact and vapor-phase action.

What makes VPCI UV shrink film so good?

Shrink film that combines high strength resins with ultraviolet (UV) light stabilizers and Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor Technology. This state-of-the-art film construction provides multi-metal protection for parts, equipment, and vehicles even in aggressive outdoor conditions.
