What Is VCI?
IPS Packaging has gathered all the information you will need to determine the tensile strength for plastic strapping.
We have created a list of commonly used strapping terms to aid in your understanding of strapping.
From poly to steel; IPS offers information on the numerous types of strapping available.
We have put together a helpful guide for finding the dimensions of boxes.
To ensure protection of all those using our equipment, we offer specific safety precautions.
IPS Packaging has arranged a handy guide for how to select the proper strapping tool.
IPS describes the differences between plastic and steel seals.
Chemical Scavenging Technology – patented chemical formulations that neutralize any acid gases and prevent them from coming in contact with metal components sealed inside the package. Ferrous Metals – metals made from iron (steel, carbon steel, cast iron, etc.) Multimetal Corrosion Inhibitors – chemicals that inhibits corrosion on both ferrous...
Corrosion inhibitor compounds vaporize from the paper or film. They are attracted to the charged surface of the metal by virtue of their polar orientation. The VCI molecules align on the surface of the metal to a depth of 3 to 5 molecules. This layer of molecules passivates the charged...
VCI Protection is a Function of: Not all VCI’s 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...
What is volatile corrosion inhibition? Volatile corrosion inhibition is a function of a combination of related factors: These factors do not work independent of each other, but are synergistic in making an effective VCI. For example, the best VCI formulation in the world will not be able to provide the...
