Vapour Corrosion Inhibitor

  • Ferrous metals have a high carbon content which generally makes them vulnerable to rust when exposed to moisture.
  • Mechanism: Vapour corrosion inhibitors are substances that slowly release a corrosion preventative compound from plastic films into a sealed air space, effectively protecting exposed metal surfaces. It protects by interrupting the electrochemical corrosion process caused by moisture, oxygen and contaminants in the atmosphere.
  • As a chemical substance that acts to reduce corrosion by a combination of volatilization from a material, vapor transport in the atmosphere of an enclosed environment, and condensation onto surface in the space, including absorption, dissolution, and hydrophobic effects on metal surfaces, where the rate of corrosion of metal surfaces is thereby inhibited.
Advantages :
  • Effective corrosion protection and packaging combined in one step
  • Metals are ready for use and assembly directly out of the packaging
  • Provides safe and effective protection
  • Improve shipment yield rates
Applications: Packaging film, cast film for packing of


  • Automotive
  • Shipping overseas
  • Any application that requires Corrosion Inhibitors
