VCI polythene

We are able to supply a wide range of polythene widths with VCI. VCI (Volatile Corrosive Inhibitor) helps protect metal components from rusting or corroding. Moisture in the environment settles on the surface of metal components and over time this moisture helps conduct an electrochemical process which produces oxidisation or rust. When enclosing a metal object inside VCI polythene, the active vapours fight against the electrochemical process and prevents corrosion.

It is vital that users are educated properly in the use of VCI polythene. If the metal products are not packed in the correct way and in the wrong conditions, the VCI may not work properly. The vapours that this material releases are not toxic.
