In today’s shipping world, if you are sending something made of metal, a VCI bag can be the difference maker between a successful shipment or a rusty delivery. VCI is short for Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor, which basically means that VCI bags will protect your metal shipments from expensive corrosive damage. Metal can be a very expensive and delicate product to ship. The last thing you want is for your customer to receive a shipment with noticeable damage from rust or corrosion. Fortunately, investing in the protection of VCI bags can put your mind at ease.

When you are shipping metal objects extremely long distances, the package is at the mercy of the elements. What a VCI bag can do is protect your ferrous and non-ferrous metals from rust, moisture, and corrosion until they successfully arrive at their final destination.

VCI Bags Protect Metals from the Elements
