RUST-X VCI film is manufactured using a patented process and structure. The product passes the most rigorous test methods for evaluation of corrosion protection such as VIA Test for Vapor Inhibiting Ability as per TL 8135-0043 or German Razor Blade Test. The product is free from Nitrites, Secondary Amines as well as for heavy metals. The film is also TRGS 615 compliant.
This is ideally used for packaging of metal products or for equipment packaging for long term storage and transportation.
VCI stands for Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors. VCI Plastics make use of VCI Technology to protect metallic components packed in them. RUST-X VCI Plastics works on SMP technology for speedy moisture passivation.
The VCI molecules work by evaporation and condensation on the cooler metal parts and prevent corrosion wherever they settle. In effect a corrosion inhibiting layer comprising of macromolecules is deposited on the part.
This molecular film formed inhibits the forward reaction of corrosion by limiting/stopping the electron flow, altering pH as well as by forming a physical barrier to oxygen and water vapour. Steel Components packed in RUST-X VCI can be protected for up to 10 years when combined with our other VCI Solutions.
The Rust-X VCI Plastic is free of nitrites or secondary amines.
