VCI Plastics: Metalguard

By Australian Inhibitor

Designed to protect non ferrous metals from rust and corrosion Metalguard® VCI films are extruded plastic films incorporating a proprietary blend of inhibitors designed to protect ferrous, non ferrous metals and multi metal composites from corrosion in contact or in the vapour phase. Most films are heat sealable.

Method of Protection
Protection is provided by contact and the vapour released by the film which will deposit on the metal surface by forming a molecular film which, in turn, will dissolve in any moisture present, thereby preventing corrosion from occurring. Volatility is controlled, the rate of which is temperature sensitive. Thus the amount of vapour released increases in line with temperature increases, commensurate with increased corrosive potential.
