Product Description

Product Description

ZERUST® Premium VCI Paper is bio-based, as well as sourced from responsibly managed forestry product suppliers. It’s fully recyclable, biodegradable, repulpable, and saturated on both sides with invisible, odorless, and non-toxic Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor Technology (VCI). These VCI molecules diffuse from both sides of the paper and settle onto exposed metal surfaces inside the packaging or enclosure. Once removed, the VCI will dissipate from the metal surface, allowing immediate painting, welding, or further processing.

Use ZERUST® Premium VCI Paper to interleave, as well as to wrap metals, as it offers a protective barrier against corrosion without compromising environmental responsibility. Additionally, for added protection in challenging environments, use ZERUST® Premium VCI Paper with ZERUST® VCI poly packagingrust inhibitors, preventatives, coatings, or VCI diffuser products. Furthermore, engineered for a broad range of applications, ICT®427 VCI Paper is available in a 35# paper weight with multimetal protection formulation, making it suitable for various metal types. However, it is advisable to test before use on sensitive metals like copper and brass to ensure an ideal packaging solution. Whether in storage or transit, ZERUST® ICT®427 Premium VCI Kraft Paper delivers unparalleled performance.
