VCI paper – The Ultimate Solution for Metal Protection during Transit
Corrosion is something every manufacturer producing, shipping, or packaging metal products
fear of. The challenge of the costly consequences of product damage due to rust or corrosion
is always out there. Under such circumstance, VCI paper (Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors) offer
many benefits to prevent corrosion and sustain quality life of metal products.
What is Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors (VCI)?
It is a type of corrosion inhibitor very often used to shield the ferrous materials against
corrosion. Typically, ferrous materials refer to those products build up of iron such as stainless
steel, cast iron, galvanized iron, carbon steel, brass, aluminum, and so on. They create a
neutral environment inside the packaging box to help prevent corrosion and rust penetrates
inside the iron surface.
The working principle for VCI paper is that of a difference in vapor pressure. It slowly releases
its compounds within the packaged area to prevent corrosion on a variety of surfaces. The
corrosive elements our VCI paper packaging fight against is acid, humidity, water, oxygen,
salt, chemicals, and other such materials. By adding VCI paper while packaging products, the
end-user doesn’t have to contend with rust removal, cleaning, repairing, and so on.
Advantages of VCI
VCI does not affect the physical properties of any electrical components such as resistance,
conductance, and so on.
• They are environment-friendly and recyclable.
• The VCI Paper keeps on emitting its molecules for the transit period & protects any
moisture attack in the atmosphere.
• They are available in a wide range of variables such as plain papers, woven fabric,
plastic, powders, emitters, crepe paper, PE paper & many more…
• They act as a potential barrier against moisture and offer protection to the metals
from rust over a period of time.
Why choose VCI Packaging?
SafePack – one of the top manufacturers of corrosion packaging products often receive
queries and concerns from our clients regarding their choices of selecting VCI paper packaging
for metal products. Therefore, we thought of collaborating 5 of the major features of VCI
packaging and why is it crucial for any manufacturer:
• With VCI, your corrosion and packaging costs can be reduced to a minimum while
increasing the packaging performance.
• Easy to application – Simply place the product into VCI packaging and wrap it. The
product will be protected. There is no need for application of grease, oils or any other
• The is safe for people to use, it is recyclable and reusable.
• Every metal has its own unique characteristics such as different size, shapes, and
weights. Therefore, choose the best-fitted VCI packaging that goes with every metal
• VCI has unto 2-years of shelf life. The components stored inside it will remain
corrosion free for up to 2 years and in some cases unto 5 years depending on the
dosage of the VCI.
