Today’s rust-prevention methods are many, but one method remains the most effective of all: vapor corrosion inhibitors.
VCI works at every stage of your product’s lifecycle. Providing protection from the time of manufacturing to the time of delivery to your customers, VCI packaging is time-sensitive and cost-effective. It eliminates the extra metal parts processing steps associated with cleaning, drying, degreasing, sandblasting and re-applying rust preventatives.
Metal parts manufacturers that use VCI packaging for their parts usually experience less re-working of parts, fewer rejected parts from unhappy customers and a longer parts life overall.
For some of these manufacturers, VCI bags are the go-to option for utilizing vapor corrosion inhibitors.
How VCI Bags Work
Metals packaged inside rust-prevention bags, specifically Rust Guard Premium™ VCI poly bags, receive continuous corrosion protection from water, salt, atmospheric contaminants and galvanic corrosion initiated by dissimilar metals.
The vapor corrosion inhibitor molecules ensure complete corrosion protection at any stage of your manufacturing, storage and shipping processes.
Parts packaged in Rust Guard Premium™ VCI bags remain free of rust, stains and tarnish for up to 2-5 years. These bags are non-toxic and recyclable, replacing traditional corrosion inhibitors of the past.
