To answer the question what is VCI paper, Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors is one such material used for efficient and safe transportation of metals and other goods made from them. VCI contains chemicals, which vaporize and neutralize the packet containing metal goods. They inhibit moisture from reacting with metal and safeguards metal.
Although VCI is an effective solution for metal protection, its efficiency varies with a number of factors. VCI can be purchased from market either as VCI paper roll, VCI paper sheet, and waxed VCI paper or as VCI emitter. There are possible inhibitors for the suitability of a particular packaging job, but for the most part VCI can help you with packing almost any particular product.
Length and width of metal determines the type of VCI (roll or sheet) and whether it will be appropriate for packaging. For packaging of non-uniform products, roll is a better option while for uniformly sized metal, sheet of appropriate size will be better. Weight of metal will determine the strength of VCI paper or film. It should be strong enough to not tear or puncture easily when loading. Climate conditions also determine the strength of VCI paper or film.
For example, it should be able to stand high temperatures if being transported to or stored in extreme weather conditions. A metal component with grease residue on its surface should be separated from waxed VCI paper in order segregate it from other package contents, as that may cause some issues in transport. The number of VCI emitter within a container depends on the volume of container. The larger the size of container, the more is the number of VCI emitter that should be placed in the container to make sure it is appropriate for you packaging project.
Thus, that is a broad overview of what VCI paper is and the product delivery/ storage conditions that are necessary for determining the appropriate strength, size, and type of VCI paper or film for packaging. So make sure to go through this checklist again when you are in the process of putting together your VCI paper packaging!
