The VCI Film Silver-Guard is a heat-sealable, non-dusting, and reusable polyethylene film designed to protect silver-plated and precious metals from tarnish as a result of oxidation and sulfide vapour. The Silver-Guard™ works by reacting with and removing all sulfide vapours in the surrounding enclosed environment.
Unlike other types of packaging, the Silver-Guard film can be packed directly with metals without the risk of staining or discolouration. This packaging method hence eliminates the need for two different packaging process by acting as both a packaging and corrosion inhibitor at once, which reduces the packaging time, level of expenses and inventory required significantly.
The Silver-Guard also ensures that polished surfaces are uncontaminated from leaving particulates or residue. This feature of the film makes it a go-to film by electronic manufacturers as it does not interfere with the solderability, conductivity and coatings. In addition, the film is also very popular with consumer items, including silverware, flatware, coins, musical instruments, jewellery, strings and accessories.
Recyclable, non-toxic and easy-to-use, the Silver-Guard is also transparent, which further enhance the operation efficiency, by eliminating the need for opening, allowing easy inspection of inner objects.
