The VCI-Method

VCI stands for Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor. VCI agents are compounds which possess both corrosion-protective properties and vapour pressure. These VCI agents evaporate out of their support material - as shown in the animation - until a protective atmosphere has been created within the packaging.

The inhibitors are then deposited on the metal surface and stop the metal's protective passive layer from dissolving and corroding the metal.


Our VCI-paper BRANOrost in particular provides an outstanding protective effect - completely without oil! Another equally recommendable combination is our BRANOfol plus BRANOchips made from pulp which emits VCIs.
