Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor, or VCI plastic, is used to protect metal from corroding. Upon contact with moisture, dirt and other rust-inducing materials, the plastic transforms into an invisible film to form a protective barrier.
VCI packaging has many advantages, one of which is its resistance to moisture. Unlike paper packages, this plastic effectively keeps moisture out to prevent corrosion.
With VCI bags, sheets and tubing makes identifying packed objects easier. Because they are transparent, it is not necessary to unpack items for identification purposes.
VCI can be used in many industries for different products. Packaging material is available in an assortment of colors and a wide range of sizes. It offers superior stability and is foldable for convenience.
It is important to note that VCI is most effective when used as primary packaging. Although it is suited for secondary packaging, the plastic will not provide adequate cover for metal.
