In general, corrosion is the oxidation of metals in the presence of water or water vapor, and is known as oxide (iron, steel), white oxide (galvanized steel), and other terms of corrosion failure such as tarnish, stings, peeling and detachment
Very often, this deterioration becomes visible in metals and we refer to it as rust. What happens in this case is that chemical reactions arise from exposure of the metal to the presence of water and oxygen.
To fight against corrosion in packaging and avoid the appearance of rust, there is active protection that fights against corrosion by modifying physical processes. Among the most important is the creation of a protective atmosphere VCI (inhibition of steam corrosion)
The process of inhibition begins when the vapor comes into contact with the metal surface and condenses forming a thin layer of crystals of one or two molecules in thickness. Before the minimum presence of humidity or acids, the crystals dissolve and form a protective film on the metallic surface that prevents corrosion.
We use our VCI solutions (paper and plastic) to wrap and pack the merchandise, or on the trays and separators.
