What Is the Difference Between VCI Rolls and Sheets?
We’re commonly asked by our customers, “what is the difference between VCI Rolls and Sheets?”. So, we’ll take a quick look into VCI and the difference between the two options. VCI (Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor) packaging materials are commonly used to protect metal surfaces from corrosion during transportation and storage. These VCI poly materials work by releasing
5 Reasons the Steel Coil Industry Prefers VCI Paper and Poly for Optimal Steel Coil Corrosion Protection
Corrosion is a significant challenge in the steel coil industry, causing damage to steel coils and resulting in decreased productivity and profitability. As a result, rust-preventative coatings have commonly been used by steel coil suppliers and manufacturers to provide steel coil corrosion protection during storage and transportation. However, one solution in the steel coil industry has
What to Do When Rust Prevention Fails?
In the manufacturing world, many companies go to great lengths to select products and processes to prevent rust and corrosion from forming on their valuable metal assets during transit and storage. They will probably incorporate volatile corrosion inhibitor (VCI) packaging, rust preventative (RP) coatings, desiccants, or some combination of them. But what happens when their
How to use ZERUST® VCI Products Correctly
For nearly 5 decades now, manufacturers and OEMs across the globe have been incorporating ZERUST® Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) products into their packaging applications to prevent rust and corrosion during shipping and storage of their metal goods. However, despite years of experience, not everyone fully understands how VCI works and how to use it correctly
ZERUST® VCI Film Additives & Custom Options
ZERUST®/EXCOR® (Vapor or Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor) VCI film, poly bags, and tubing are produced using a process known as blown film extrusion. The polyethylene is melted and extruded into sheeting which is then slit, folded, or sealed to the desired size and dimensions. With ZERUST’s vast manufacturing network, we have over 100 extrusion lines in
6 Straight Forward Steps to Get Rust Under Control
Opening up a container to discover corrosion on metal items is frustrating. It often means lost time, missed deadlines, and unhappy people in your supply chain. The loss or rework of the corroded items plus the impact on business all total up to a significant cost. Corrosion can be complicated and may be caused by
5 Best Practices for VCI Packaging Storage
Do you currently use Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) packaging to protect metals from corrosion? Are you wondering about the best way to store VCI packaging, such as rolls of poly sheeting and VCI gusset bags, before use? Since VCI products are designed to diffuse their protective chemistry into open spaces, the key to preserving their effectiveness
RP Oils or VCIs: Which Protection Method is Best for Me?
When considering corrosion protection methods, plenty of options are available. The two methods most used for protecting metals during the manufacturing processes of shipment and storage are corrosion inhibitor liquids and VCI (volatile corrosion inhibitor) packaging products. Corrosion inhibitor liquids, also known as “Rust Preventatives” (RPs) or oils, are available in a wide range of
