The VCI Film Metal-Guard is a flexible & heavy-duty, heat sealable VCI foil barrier material. It is one of the most effective protective packaging solutions in the market that protect against corrosion damaged as a result of humidity, moisture, oxygen, salt spray, aromas, grease and other airborne contaminants. It typically prevents corrosion on items during storage or shipment over a long duration, where conventional methods would be difficult or costly.
The VCI Film Metal-Guard is made with Mil-PRF-131J QPL lamination composed of biaxially oriented nylon, aluminium foil, and a heavy polyethylene sealant layer. The metal-guard film features a unique blend of corrosion inhibitors, incorporated into the PE sealant to create an air and moisture-proof combination, proven to protect packaged metals against corrosion. This feature of the VCI Film Metal-Guard makes it a two-in-one barrier foil that essentially removes the need for wrapping metal parts with VCI film and another layer of laminated barrier foil. The Metal-Guard film improves the packaging efficiency of metal parts, reducing labour needs and costs. Typical applications include wrapping or crating large machinery for export or wrapping smaller parts for long-term storage.
The VCI Film Metal-Guard Light is a light-duty, nylon/aluminium foil/polyethylene structure, incorporated with a unique ferrous metal corrosion inhibitor in the PE film layer. Featuring an excellent sealing characteristic, the film is ideal for hand-sealing in the field. Typical applications include the wrapping of large machinery or metal components for export when crating is unavailable. metal-guard film light is also proven to be a two-in-one solution, capable of eliminating the need for wrapping metal parts with both VCI films and another layer of laminated barrier foil.
