The products of the PROPATECH VCI FILM range are made by introducing the PROPATECH VCI additive into the still melted material during the film coextrusion phase. The additive is then able to sublime from the plastic, guaranteeing protection from the corrosion of the packed metallic details.
The PROPATECH VCI FILM products are an easy, practical and economical solution adopted by the main automobile manufacturers, steelmakers and metallurgical companies worldwide, to prevent damage caused by corrosion.
Thanks to the transparency of PROPATECH VCI FILM products, the goods can be correctly placed in positions or racks, and facilitate customs procedures without requiring that the packaging is opened and ruined.
The three-layer coextrusion is the main feature of the standard PROPATECH VCI FILMproducts. The coextrusion guarantees increased mechanical resistance and a single-directionality of the PROPATECH VCI molecules
The 3 layers of film have the function of:
Inner layer: guaranteeing immediate protection of the items to be safeguarded.
Middle layer: acting as a PROPATECH VCI molecule tank for long term protection. This layer comes into action only after the inner layer has been consumed.
Outer layer: acting as a barrier to the atmospheric agents and as protective actioncontainment as well. This layer prevents the PROPATECH VCI molecules from being dispersed to the exterior, guaranteeing that 100% of the protective effectiveness is developed inside the packaging.
Main applications: CKD, metallic automobile components (motor systems, transmissions, gear boxes, brake pads, etc..), steel reels, entire machines, all types of metallic items. The three-layer coextrusion is the main feature of the standard PROPATECH VCI FILM products. The coextrusion guarantees increased mechanical resistance and a single-directionality of the PROPATECH VCI molecules.
PROPATECH VCI FILM Range:
Propatech VCI Film
The PROPATECH VCI films are particularly suitable for packaging machinery and are also used to cover cases, crates, ga.fer. and boxes.
Available in single or multi-fold layer rolls, tubular and sheets of single-layer or coextruded anti-corrosive film.
Minimum height: 29 mm – Maximum height: 10,000 mm
Minimum thickness: 5opm (single-layer) / 70pm (coextruded) – Maximum thickness: 300pm
Propabol VCI Film
PROPABOL VCI is an innovative idea made with PROPATECH VCI technology for the whole protection of the quality of your products. PROPABOL VCI is made by coupling the air-bubble polyethylene with PROPATECH VCI FILM (coextruded polyethylene film with additional VCI inhibitors).
Propatech VCI Stretch
PROPATECH VCI STRETCH is a coextruded extendible film with the added PROPATECH VCI anti-corrosive system. The products of the PROPATECH VCI range are made by introducing the PROPATECH VCI additive into the still melted material during the film coextrusion phase. The additive is then able to sublime from the plastic, guaranteeing protection from the corrosion of the packed metallic details. The high quality resins used for the production grant extremely high performances in terms of resistance, also for plates with extremely sharp edges. The elastic memory of PROPATECH VCI STRETCH allows the product to be fully bound, granting it a ” second skin” able to prevent any oxidation process.
