VCI film metal guard® is a flexible & heavy-duty, heat-sealable VCI foil barrier material. The anti-rust packaging protects against corrosion damage caused by humidity, moisture, oxygen, salt spray, aromas, grease and other airborne contaminants. The film provides long-term corrosion protection in packaging during storage or shipment.
They are manufactured with Mil-PRF-131J QPL lamination composed of biaxially oriented nylon, aluminium foil and a heavy polyethene sealant layer. The packaging film has a unique blend of VCI formulations incorporated into the PE sealant, creating an air and moisture-proof combination to protect packaged metals against corrosion.
The packaging solution is a two-in-one barrier foil that removes the need for wrapping metal parts with VCI film and another layer of laminated barrier foil. The film can improve packaging efficiency, reducing labour needs and costs. Typical applications include crating and wrapping machinery for export or wrapping smaller parts for long-term storage.
The light version is a light-duty, aluminium foil/nylon/polyethene structure with a unique blend of corrosion inhibitors in the PE film layer. Being a strong sealant, the film is ideal for hand-sealing during packaging. Typical applications of volatile corrosion inhibitors include wrapping large machinery or metal components for export or storage.
