Product Description

Product Description

ZERUST® ICT®520-XF opaque black VCI film diffuses invisible, odorless, and non-toxic ZERUST® Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor Technology (VCI). As a result, the VCI molecules settle onto exposed metal surfaces inside the packaging or enclosure. Once removed from the packaging, the VCI will dissipate from the metal surface, allowing immediate painting, welding, or further processing

Use ZERUST® VCI Film to protect heavy, large, or irregularly shaped items, such as automobiles, motorcycles, golf bags, gun cases, pallets, and more, from rust and corrosion for years. For added protection in challenging environments, ZERUST® VCI Film may be used with ZERUST® rust Inhibitors, preventatives, coatings, or VCI diffuser products. Engineered for a broad range of applications, ICT®520-XF VCI Film is available in ferrous, non-ferrous, and multimetal formulations, and the film’s versatility allows for fabrication into various types of protective covers or integration with existing materials through sewing or laminating, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. In addition, custom options such as UV stabilizers, acid-gas blockers, anti-block, slip, and anti-static additives are available to meet specific protection requirements. Whether in storage or transit, ZERUST® ICT®520-XF VCI Film delivers unparalleled performance.
