VCI shrink wrap is a simple and economical solution for packaging large and irregularly shaped equipment. A barrier against moisture and contaminants, it is commonly used to cover machinery that needs to be transported by rail, flatbed truck, or ocean-bound container. The packaging film has heat-sealable and puncture-resistant properties that allow the film to conform to irregular shapes and surfaces. Covering assets with it keeps the contents secure while protecting them from the surrounding environment.
VCI shrink film keeps metals clean, dry, and corrosion-free with the added volatile corrosion inhibitors and UV stabilisers. The durable, flexible, puncture and tear-resistant VCI film conforms easily to the product’s shape and has UV-blocking compounds that prevent damage from harmful UV rays.
After metals are wrapped or packaged, the VCI compounds form an invisible protective molecular layer on the surface of the metal. The protective coating is a barrier, preventing moisture, salt, dirt, oxygen, and corrosion-causing materials from depositing directly on the metal. Cleaning is not required, as the VCI will safely dissipate once the packaging is removed.
The excellent sealing properties allow the VCI film to be used on-site without additional equipment. Available in 3 different base materials:
The VCI film is incorporated with corrosion inhibitors and a thick flexible shrink film. The well-rounded film keeps ferrous and non-ferrous metals clean, dry, and rust-free. UVI stabilisation gives the film a long shelf life, making it ideal for outdoor storage and export environments.
The shrink film has superior corrosion protection for ferrous metals and can be compatible with other non-ferrous metals. UV stabilisation provides a long shelf life to the film, making it ideal for outdoor storage and export environments.
Use shrink film to secure the load and remove dust, dirt, moisture, and contaminants. Not only can it offer corrosion protection for metals, but the film can give products a controlled, dry interior atmosphere for various protective transit requirements. Ideal to use for protection in flatbeds, container shipping, barge, or replacing tarps.
