Finishing Associates, Inc. is pleased to announce that we have expanded our product line to include a complete line of VCI corrosion inhibiting packaging.
These products are a natural extension to our existing product lines. Our Rust Guard Premium™ VCI products are specifically formulated to prevent rust and corrosion on nearly all types of metal parts. This addition to our product line completes the loop from finishing parts to packaging, storage and shipment to your customer rust-free!
Our complete line of Rust Guard Premium™ VCI products are available in VCI poly bags, VCI paper, VCI zipper bags, VCI emitters, VCI Wire, VCI foam, and VCI chipboard, as well as other substrates.
are environmentally friendly, economical, trusted alternatives that solve corrosion problems once and for all. These products are coated with corrosion-inhibiting molecules that move from the carrier – either paper or poly bag – to a metal’s surface to form a thin protective layer that defends against the corrosive nature of oxygen and moisture.
Unlike other rust-prevention methods, the vapors in VCI products have the ability to reach recessed metal surfaces that would otherwise go untouched. They’re formulated to saturate the vapor space quickly, with lasting effects.
is an abbreviation for Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor or Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor. These corrosion inhibiting compounds are coated on paper or polyethylene bags, and have sufficient vapor pressure to release molecules into the air. Due to their polarity, the VCI molecules are attracted to the surface of metal, just like a magnet. VCI molecules move from the paper or film directly to the surface of metals. When these compounds come in contact with metal surfaces they form a very thin molecular layer. This thin layer effectively inhibits corrosion on the metal surface by preventing air and moisture from coming in contact with the surface of the metal. The result is Rust-Free parts.
Our VCI packaging products include VCI papers, VCI poly bags, VCI poly sheeting, VCI stretch film, VCI foam, VCI Emitters, VCI Wire, VCI chipboard, and many others.
VCI products are environmentally-friendly, cost-effective, and simple to use. These advantages, along with many others make VCI products an excellent choice for corrosion inhibition, eliminating the need for messy grease, oils, protective coatings, and other ineffective methods.
