Trying to keep certain materials safe from harm is a big priority for a lot of business owners. This is especially true if your business deals with metals and materials that are susceptible to corrosive damage. Corrosion can eat away at your products and materials and lead to huge expenses if you don’t find the right protective packaging to help out. The good news is that EDCO Supply Corporation can always help you find exactly what you need to keep your products and goods safe. VCI paper is essentially the perfect option if you are trying to keep metals and other things safe from corrosion. Below, we are going to answer some of the most frequently asked questions we get about VCI paper.
What does VCI stand for?
The “VCI” in VCI paper stands for volatile corrosion inhibitor. This protective packaging is chemically treated in a way that prevents corrosion accelerating moisture from affecting a good or material wrapped in VCI paper.
How long does VCI paper last?
This is a frequent question that we receive at EDCO Supply Corporation. Our VCI paper is built to last with a 2-year shelf life. That means if you don’t plan on using the VCI paper right away, you can still expect it to be useful later on down the road. Make sure you are storing your VCI paper in a box that is taped or closed so that moisture doesn’t affect its functionality.
Do temperatures affect the VCI paper?
It’s important to note that while cold temperatures don’t really affect the VCI paper, extremely hot temperatures can indeed speed up the loss of the corrosion inhibitors over time. Try to seal any packaging with VCI paper the right way to avoid letting temperatures affect the lifespan of the protective packaging.
