What are Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors?
Vapor corrosion inhibitors (VCIs) are substances that slowly release a corrosion preventative compound into a sealed air space, effectively protecting exposed metal surfaces. VCIs are often used in situations where it is impractical or undesired to use rust preventative liquids or other surface treatments.
Common Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor Products Include:
Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor Packaging Film
VCI packaging films are available in many stock and custom options. VCI Film comes in a range of sizes and MIL thicknesses and can be made in VCI plastic sheets, tubing, J-sheeting and c-fold sheeting. Some stock bag options are flat VCI bags, zipper bags and VCI gusset liners. A range of metal protection types are available as well as acid-gas scavenging technology and additives such as ESD and UV protection can be incorporated.
Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor Emitters and Diffusers
VCI Emitters (also known as VCI diffusers) provide targeted corrosion protection in hard-to-reach enclosed spaces or can be used as added protection to VCI packaging products. VCI Emitters emit powerful corrosion inhibiting molecules into an enclosure that settle on metal surfaces and protect them from corrosion. They are safe for electronics, odorless*, non-toxic*, residue-free, and are designed to work in restricted spaces.
