Corrosion Prevention: When to Use VCI Diffusers with VCI Packaging

Posted on October 24, 2018
Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) Packaging is an effective way to prevent corrosion on metals. When packed correctly, VCI packaging can protect clean metals for years in shipping and storage. Typical VCI packaging products are VCI poly sheeting, VCI bags, VCI Kraft paper, and other VCI wraps. These packaging products are used to line containers or create

VCI Poly vs VCI Paper? The Advantages and Disadvantages Explained

Posted on October 23, 2018
Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors (VCIs) have been around since the 1940’s, when a product named Dichan was introduced into market. Dichan consisted of dicyclohexylamine-nitrite, which was described as a vapor phase corrosion inhibitor that had sufficient vapor pressure to release corrosion inhibiting molecules into the surrounding area. Eventually, this chemistry began to be coated onto paper,

VCIs vs Desiccants. How do they Differ?

Posted on October 22, 2018
Often people confuse VCI (Vapor or Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor) with desiccants, as they both are used to control corrosion during shipping and storage.  However, the way these chemistries work is much different. Depending on the application, environment and length of protection, you may get better results with VCI vs desiccants. Some highly effective packaging systems
