NEU! VCI Luftpolsterfolien

Metallteile vor Rost UND Beschädigung schützen!

Flexible, adhesive-top bubble bags that protect metal parts from physical damage and corrosion are new from Daubert Europe, the global manufacturer of VCI packaging for industry. 

Premium Metal-Guard® VCI bubble bags provide cushioning and corrosion protection for highly polished, precision machined parts in storage and during transit. Bags are best for heavy metal parts and delicate components that are susceptible to damage due to vibration during shipment.  Optional peel-and-seal closure makes bags easy to use, up to 3 times faster than hand-wrapping.

Standard VCI bags are 2-layer, bubble-out construction, allowing parts to slide in easily. The corrosion inhibitor film is safe to handle, odorless, and does not affect processing or soldering.  Ideal for packaging computer equipment, electronics, and heavy components with machined surfaces that need individual wrapping to prevent marring and scuffing.

  • Air bubbles on the outside of the bag cushion the part from movement, abrasion, and rubbing against other parts in the shipping container or box.
  • Resists tears and punctures.
  • Lip and tape closure eliminates need for tape or staples.
  • Reduces labor costs and packaging time.

For more information about VCI bubble bags or any of Daubert Cromwell's VCI films, papers, foam, emitters, rust preventive liquids and rust removers, contact  service@daubertcromwell.eu or call  +49-89-4522036-0.

Selecting The Right VCI

Stop rust with vci packaging

VCI PROTECTION IS A FUNCTION OF:
  • Which metals are in need of protection.
  • Corrosion inhibiting chemicals used and their effectiveness on the metals.
  • Ratio of chemicals in the formulation.
  • Amount of volatile corrosion inhibitors on the paper or in the film.
  • pH of the finished product.
  • Water solubility and the effectiveness of the corrosion inhibitor in the presence of moisture and/or high humidity.
  • Natural, neutral kraft paper or polyethylene film used as the carrier for the VCI.
  • The overall packaging design and the conditions expected during packing, shipping and storing.

Not all VCIs are created equal and often, one VCI formulation that works under one set of conditions will not work under another. One has to take into account all aspects of the process, metals composition, packaging, storage and shipping conditions in order to select the right packaging media and VCI formulation.

A large number of combinations are available from Daubert Cromwell and chances are we have one that will be effective in any specific application. To learn more about packaging your products with Daubert Cromwell, please view our Packaging Design Criteria file.
