Reasons Why VCI Paper From MetPro is So Effective
Are you struggling to find an effective vapour corrosion inhibitor?
Are you unsure whether VCI paper is the kind of packaging you need to protect your products against corrosion?
Why is MetPro VCI paper so effective?
First of all, you must know that MetPro uses specially matured, machine glazed Kraft paper, which are coated with a range of MetPro VCI chemical formulations. The chemical chosen for coating is solely dependent on the metal to be protected. VCI papers provide an extremely dry method of protection and enables effective and long-term protection of metals in the most adverse conditions, even for hard to reach surfaces.
How does VCI paper work?
When an item is enclosed, wrapped or interleaved with these VCI coated papers, vapours are emitted which saturate the air space. These vapours are adsorbed onto the metal surfaces forming a monomolecular protective layer. This protective layer remains on the metal surface until the package is opened when it evaporates leaving a clean metal surface.
The correct use of VCI Paper ensures that the concentration of VCI vapours in the enclosed atmosphere is constantly replenished giving continuous protection. The system provides excellent vapour phase and contact inhibitor action.
VCI paper comes in a variety of options!
Our range of VCI paper is almost limitless, with papers being available with different backings of papers such as plain, extensible, PE-coated, OPP/PET- laminated, woven, reinforced, crepes, polycrepes, crepe laminates, woven polypropylenes and corrugated boards.
Larger or irregular shaped products should be protected with heavier grades of paper, while smaller parts can use lighter basis weights. Several MetPro products feature special substrates that combine corrosion protection with barrier packaging. Barrier coated papers and films protect against moisture and grease; laminated & crepe grades afford heavy-duty protection against the environment.
The selection of grade depends on the weight and shape of the product, package condition, and the duration of protection required.
