Volatile or Vapor phase corrosion inhibitors (VCI/VPI) are a class of chemical compounds that emit rust inhibiting vapors into an enclosed air space to prevent corrosion on a metal surface. Armor Protective Packaging® products utilize our proprietary VCI nanotechnology, essential to keeping your shipments, stored items and even in-process metals corrosion free for years of protection.
ARMOR has engineered highly specialized corrosion inhibitors based on ionic salts. Our packaging materials are infused with the corrosion inhibitors, carrying them into the packaging environment. In the presence of moisture the salts dissolve to form ions, permeating the packaging environment with corrosion inhibitors. The inhibiting ions are attracted to and deposit on the metallic surfaces displacing moisture in the process and re-associating to form a stable nanocoating only a few molecules thick.
Benefits of ARMOR Proprietary VCI:
Self-adjusts to the environment (temperature & humidity)
Migrates to distant metallic surfaces and recessed areas VCI
Molecular film does not alter any important metal properties
Vapors replenish inside the contained package
