For MetPro, there’s no packaging problem too big or too small! Our VCI Packaging products can be adapted to suit any customer’s packaging needs. MetPro is very proud of its extensive range of VCI Packaging product solutions, including:
Our range of VCI Packaging products ensures that our customer can achieve all their anti-corrosion packaging needs from one source.
MetPro has a dedicated R&D team who are keeping up to date with the ever changing market trends and legislation requirements around the globe.
VCI Packaging Product Range
MetPro’s VCI Films provide effective corrosion protection to a wide range of metal types. The VCI film protects the metal part through direct contact and vapour action. The anti-corrosion chemicals volatilize into the surrounding enclosed areas and the released vapour deposits on the metal forming a protective layer on the metal surface.
MetPro’s VCI Films are clean & easy to use and suitable for both automatic and manual packing. Once unpacked the metals don’t require additional cleaning or degreasing and are ready for immediate use. MetPro provides a wide range of films for a variety of applications.
MetPro’s VCI Film which is manufactured in compliance with a multitude of industry standards. Our VCI films are available in a range of sizes and formats:
- Single wound sheeting
- Center fold sheeting
- Flat and gusseted bags
- Case liner and covers
- Skin/stretch and shrink film
- Elasticated bags
- Lock-tip-bag/zipper bag
- Sealed shapes and special constructions

Direct food contact approved
MetPro manufactures a comprehensive range of additive masterbatches that are a chemical concentrate in pellet form. These can be blended with many polymer resins such as LDPE/LLDPE/HDPE to produce a wide variety of VCI film products depending on the end application.
When the VCI Masterbatch is blended with a polymer, the finished VCI Film offers corrosion protection by releasing vapours which form a mono-molecular protective layer on the surface of the metal to be protected. This protective layer remains until the package is opened and then evaporates, leaving a metal surface that requires no cleaning.
MetPro’s VCI Masterbatch products can be used in a wide variety of manufacturing processes such as injection molding, stretch/skin film, blown/cast film extraction.
Compatibility testing is carried out by MetPro’s technical team to ensure that additional materials used in the extrusion process such as polymer, chalks, colors, and other additives are compatible with MetPro’s VCI masterbatch and don’t have an adverse effect on the anti-corrosion properties of the VCI masterbatch.
MetPro also manufactures rust preventative paper that can be used to protect a wide range of metals. Our VCI paper comes in a wide of weights and formats depending on the application that is required: Kraft Paper, PE Kraft paper, Wax Paper, Barrier Paper, Crepe, Corrugated, 1 side protection or 2 sided protection.
Our VCI Paper provides superior corrosion protection for both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. VCI paper can be used to wrap metal parts or used as interleaves. MetPro’s VCI Paper provides a dry method of protection which enables effective long-term protection of metal parts. We provide a comprehensive range of papers incorporating special chemical technologies chosen specifically to suit the metal the metal needing protection.
MetPro has formulated an extensive range of VCI Liquids that be utilized in a wide variety of applications. Two main applications for VCI liquids are for VCI paper coating and metalworking fluids.
VCI liquid products are a full range of oil-free and water-soluble concentrates and offer complete protection at all levels of metal treatment – from processing through to cleaning and ultimately to storage. These include SyntheRange® for protection during metal working (drilling, forming, milling, and grinding), CorroClean® (water-soluble cleaners) for washing, and CorroTect® for protection during storage.
MetPro’s VCI Weave consists of a polyolefin woven fabric coated with a VCI solution. The VCI Weave is designed to save money and time. CoilWrap® is a woven PE fabric used where extra strength and tear resistance is required in the packaging of large steel coils. This new and innovative woven film made of polyethylene provides vapour corrosion protection to a wide variety of metal products including, but not limited to, steel strip, black plate, drum stock, galvanized, rods, tubes and aluminium plate and profiles.
VCI Packaging Support Product Range Forms Additional Protective Layers
As part of our VCI product range, MetPro also supplies a host of VCI packaging support products. MetPro’s VCI Support Products include foams, board, sachets, tablets, power cards and emitters are used in conjunction with its packaging products. The VCI chemical diffuses into the surrounding area forming a protective layer on the metal surface.
MetPro’s VCI Foams are water based and are ideal for the safe packing of expensive and delicate electronic equipment. The key unique feature of VCI foam is the ability to contain a high volume of vapour phase and contact corrosion inhibitors, providing over 10 times more anti-corrosion protection than the standard VCI paper and film products.
MetPro manufactures an anti-corrosion board which can be used as a support product with a VCI Film or as a standalone product in a normal polyethylene bag. Our VCI board contains a high volume of VCI which makes it ideal for the long term protection of metal parts during storage or transport. VCI board can be supplied in two colors and a wide variety of sizes, with custom print if required.
MetPro’s VCI Sachets are versatile and easy to apply with their rust prevention properties allowing the protection of a wide range of metals such as mild steel, aluminium, copper and zinc. VCI Sachets are available in sizes of 1, 5 and 10 grams.
MetPro’s VCI Tablets are formed from VCI powder and is an efficient and dry method of offering ferrous and non-ferrous anti corrosion protection. They’re ideal for the protection of electrical boxes and cabinets.
MetPro’s VCI Emitters are a combination of an impregnated board inside an easy to install plastic holder. They’re commonly used in electrical boxes and control panels and is a cost effective way to protect metals.
VCI Power Cards
A relatively new addition to the MetPro’s VCI Packaging Range are the VCI Powercards. MetPro BioCor® VCI-Power Cards are based on a new generation of VCI, which combines even better corrosion protection with the highest level of responsibility for occupational health. The vapour corrosion inhibitors integrated into the VCI-Power Cards consist entirely of natural extracts, which redefine toxicological safety in the field of VCI. The phenomenal performance means less material, which meets recycling criteria and optimisation of resources.
MetPro BioCor® VCI Power Cards provide genuine multi-metal protection during transportation and long-term storage. This is demonstrated by extensive approvals in the metalworking and automotive industries, as well as the relevant tests by the BFSV, IKS and PIRA.
MetPro’s BioCor VCI Power Cards offer protection to steel, stainless steel, galvanised steel, iron, copper, brass, chromium, nickel, aluminium, cast iron, silver, tin, magnesium, tungsten and manganese.
