Description

Heavy-duty shrink wrap is used as an easy and economical method for packaging large and irregularly shaped equipment. Used as a barrier protection against moisture and contaminants from the surrounding, it is used commonly to cover machinery that requires transportation via rail, flatbed truck or ocean-bound container. It features heat-sealable and puncture-resistant properties allowing the film to conform to irregular shapes and surfaces. Covering your assets with the film keeps the contents secure while protecting it from the surrounding environment.

VCI Shrink Film brings heavy-duty shrink wrap to the next level. By adding volatile corrosion inhibitors and UV stabilizers, VCI Shrink Film keeps your metals clean, dry, and free from corrosion. The durable, flexible, puncture and tear-resistant VCI shrink film conform easily to the shape of the equipment. It has UV blocking compounds that prevent damage from harmful UV rays.

When metals are wrapped or packaged in our VCI Film, the VCI compounds form an invisible protective molecular layer on the surface of the metal. The protective layer serves as a barrier, preventing moisture, salt, dirt, oxygen, and other corrosion-causing materials from depositing directly on the metal. Cleaning is not required, as the VCI will safely dissipate once the part is unwrapped. The metal emerges clean, dry, and ready to use.

The film’s features allow it to be used and stored anywhere; including weather changing, sunlight heavy outdoor environments. The film is an excellent alternative to less functional non-VCI shrink wraps, tarps and covers or when it is not suitable for crating. Excellent sealing properties allow the VCI film to be installed on-site without additional equipment or labour.

Available in 3 different base materials:

  • Premium Metal-Guard® VCI Shrink Film

It is incorporated with corrosion inhibitors in a thick flexible shrink film. The well-rounded film ensures both ferrous and non-ferrous metals clean dry and rust-free. The UVI stabilization feature provides extended life to the film, making it ideal for use in outdoor storage and export environments.

  • Ferro-Film® VCI Shrink Film

Exceptionally rugged shrink film with superior corrosion protection for ferrous metals. Compatible with other non-ferrous metals, the UV stabilization feature provides extended life to the film, making it ideal for use in outdoor storage and export environments.

  • Standard VCI Shrink Film

The general purpose of shrink film keeps the load secure and keeps out dust, dirt, moisture, and contaminants. Not for corrosion protection of metals. This all-purpose durable wrap provides a controlled, dry interior atmosphere for a wide variety of protective transit requirements—ideal protection for flatbed, container shipping or barge; saving labour and replacing the use of tarps.
