Vapor Barrier Rust Protection Packaging (VCI)
Ocean shipping environments while transporting overseas can be a damaging journey of transportation for your cargo. Long distance shipping and freight often requires the implementation of protection against moisture and water vapor. Our professional team at Las Vegas Crating and Logistics offer multiple logistic solutions to help you choose and keep your valuables safe from corrosion, acid spray, and salt water, that could potentially put your sensitive electronic components and metal materials at risk harming your cargo.
VCI stands for Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors. This is the layer of protection between the outside elements and your product. This could mean it is a heat sealed bag, heat sealed shrink or coated paper vapor barrier bag.
This invisible barrier acts as the last line of defense for your customer’s product when facing corrosion and rust. The tiny layer being only a few molecules think, form and adhere to the products surface creating a layer of protection at all times during the shipping.
Humidity Control for Government Shipments
Government barrier material shipping has a certain set of requirements and to get a bit technical for a second
Two primary moisture barrier technologies are used for bags. Barriers of aluminum foil and aluminized polyester are used where low MVTR is required. Most SMDs are packaged in metal barrier bags. Thick layers of plastic also can provide limited barrier for very short-term applications.
This is the oldest and most effective barrier technology. A thin sheet of aluminum foil, usually about 0.00035-in. thick, is laminated to nylon or Tyvek™ for support and protection.
This newer technology reduces material cost. Aluminum is vapor-deposited onto polyester. The metal is so thin that multiple layers of aluminized polyester are laminated together. Voids in one layer are covered by another.
