Description

Stream Peak’s VCI heavy-duty Shrink Film, also known as a shrink wrap, is used as a cost-effective packaging method for packaging large and irregularly shaped equipment. Often used as a barrier against moisture and contaminants, it is commonly used to cover machinery that needs to be transported via rail, flatbed truck, or ocean-bound containers. The shrink film features heat-sealable and puncture-resistant properties that allow the film to conform to irregular shapes and surfaces, ensuring assets are kept secures and protected from the surrounding environment.

The VCI Shrink Film brings heavy-duty shrink wrap to the next level. Incorporated with volatile corrosion inhibitors and UV stabilisers makes the Shrink Film capable of keeping metals clean, dry, and corrosion-free. The durable, flexible, puncture, and tear-resistant film can easily conform to the shape of any equipment. It also has UV blocking compounds due to the UV stabilisers incorporated, preventing damage from harmful UV rays.

When metals are wrapped or packaged in the Shrink Film, the Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor compounds form an invisible protective layer on the metal surface. This layer functions as a barrier, preventing moisture, salt, dirt, oxygen, and other corrosion-causing elements from depositing directly on the metal surfaces. The film’s features allow it to be used and stored anywhere including weather changing, sunlight heavy outdoor environment. The VCI Shrink Film is an excellent alternative to less functional non-VCI packaging solutions or packaging methods that are not suitable for crating.

The VCI Shrink Film is available in 3 base materials:

Premium Metal-Guard® VCI Shrink Film

Incorporated with corrosion inhibitors in a thick flexible Shrink Film. The well-rounded film keeps both ferrous and non-ferrous metals clean, dry, and rust-free. The UVI stabilisation feature, on the other hand, provides the film with extended life, making it ideal for outdoor storage and export environments.

Ferro-Film® VCI Shrink Film

Exceptionally rugged Shrink Film with superior corrosion protection for ferrous metals. The material has also been tested compatible with other non-ferrous metals. The UV stabilisation feature provides extended life to the film, making it ideal for use in both outdoor storage and export environments.

Standard VCI Shrink Film

The standard VCI Shrink Film is a general-purpose VCI Shrink Film designed to mainly keep the load secure and free from dust, dirt, moisture, and contaminants. This all-purpose Shrink Film is however not incorporated with any corrosion inhibitors, making it unable to protect equipment from rust. The all-purpose durable film ensures a controlled, dry interior atmosphere for a wide variety of protective transit requirements. Ideal for flatbed, container shipping, or barge; saving labour and replacing the use of tarps.
