    Whether you’re sending a product or a homemade item, you want to make sure it gets where it needs to be safely and correctly.

  10. A Complete Guide to VCI Packaging

    Before we get into everything you need to know about VCI packaging, we should first talk about what it is. VCI stands for Volatile Chemical Inhibitors, these are high tech chemicals that are volatile in nature and they constantly vaporize and protect the metals from corrosion.

    Why do you need VCI Packaging?

    This type of packaging is used to protect against corrosion. Corrosion is a constant, indiscriminate and can be costly to metal parts, this happens especially when packaged for storage and distribution.

    Other traditional anti-corrosion methods can be messy, costly and also hazardous to not only personnel but to the environment as well.

    The packaging constantly releases a mixture of special chemicals that vaporize and create gases which have anti-corrosion properties. These special vapours form a very thin protective layer around the metal surface and prevent the metal from corrosion.
