VCI Packaging,orVapor Corrosion Inhibitor packaging film,is a poly packaging film manufactured with added VCI chemistry. VCI molecules protect metals from corrosion by forming a thin,invisible layer on the surface. This layer inhibits the corrosion process caused by oxygen,water,and contaminants.
What is VCI bag used for?
ZERUST VCI Poly Bags diffuse Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors to protect metal components, machined parts, engines, molds, and more from rust and corrosion. Use ICT510-C VCI Tubing for cost-effective and versatile protection against corrosion damage for metals in shipping and storage.
What happens to VCI when the packaging is removed?
As VCI molecules vaporise out of the film and diffuse throughout the package, they also form a protective molecular layer on metal surfaces. The molecular layer is not in direct contact with the film. When the packaging is removed, the VCI molecules will vaporise and float away.
What is VCI film and how does it work?
When the VCI Film is in direct contact with the metal, VCI molecules adsorb on the metal surfaces, creating an invisible molecular barrier against corrosive elements such as oxygen, moisture, and chlorides. As VCI molecules vaporise out of the film and diffuse throughout the package, they also form a protective molecular layer on metal surfaces.
What are the different types of VCI packaging films?
VCI Film – VCI packaging films are available in many stock and custom options. VCI Film comes in a range of sizes and MIL thicknesses and can be made in VCI plastic sheets, tubing, J-sheeting, and c-fold sheeting. Some stock bag options are flat VCI bags, zipper bags, and VCI gusset liners.

What is stretch wrap?
Poly bags and stretch wrap that has those volatile corrosion inhibitors infused into the poly material. These films combine the benefits of barrier packaging with anti-corrosion protection. They’re easy to use and everyone has seen poly bags and stretch film before. You’re getting extra protection for metal, great for small parts and tools that will rust.
What is VCI paper?
VCI paper is produced with safe, water-based rust preventatives on both sides of the paper. This kraft paper wraps around your metal products to safely protect them from corrosion over time. The automotive industry commonly uses VCI to product all the metal parts. Whether they’re sitting in your warehouse awaiting production, or in the shipping process, rust will happen to metal. It’s only a matter of time, and it costs companies billions of dollars every year.
What is VCI in packaging?
First of all, what is VCI? It stands for Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors. These inhibitors are chemicals added to packaging materials that will prevent rust. This type of packaging contains special chemicals that are scientifically designed to release rust-inhibiting molecules. These molecules attach themselves to the surface area of the metal. I’m no scientist, but that sounds pretty cool right? These little rust-fighting molecules form an invisible protective layer that prevents the war on metal. It’s important to protect your metal materials against corrosion. Let’s take a look at what metals should be using VCI.
What is VCI Poly?
VCI (Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor) poly bags are made from chemically treated poly packaging film. After you seal your parts in the bag, the VCI molecules will settle on the metal surfaces creating a thin, invisible layer on the surface, inhibiting the corrosion process caused by oxygen, water, and other contaminants.
What Sizes Are Available?
Talon Packaging can supply VCI Poly bags in a wide variety of sizes ranging from 2 inches to 150 inches. We can also produce bags with additives such as acid-gas blockers and anti-static as required.
