Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors
What is VCI?
VCI stands for Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors. Zerust applies VCI technology to inhibit corrosion on metal. VCI film is packaging that generally consists of polyethylene film that has the vapor corrosion inhibitor additives added in the making of the films. Volatile corrosion inhibitors release very low concentrations of invisible corrosion inhibiting vapors into the surrounding air. The vapor molecules condense onto exposed metal surfaces and form a molecular corrosion shield that can protect against rust and other forms of corrosion for up to five (5) years. When the VCI packaging is later removed, all vapor corrosion inhibiting molecules rapidly evaporate. This leaves the metal parts clean and ready for immediate use.
Zerust VCI Films and Capsules are an excellent addition to use with industrial shrink wrap. Provide a full circle environmental protective enclosure for your valuable equipment with VCI packaging.
