What is VCI Paper?

The Zerust® Corrosion Inhibiting System (Z-CIS®) is the proven methodology for deploying the complex corrosion management systems necessary to ensure the protection of metal products shipments as they are handled by multiple (internal and external) stakeholders in transit around the world. Zerust®/Excor® Z-CIS® is proven to meet both the rust-free and contaminant-free requirements of various OEMs sourcing from a global supply base. After implementing a Z-CIS® System, our clients generally realize total cost savings of at least 10% and rust-free shipment yields as high as 100%. Consult a Zerust®/Excor® representative today to solve corrosion issues in your supply chain.

How Does VCI Paper Work?

VCI Paper, or Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor, paper emits molecules that settle on metal surfaces and form an invisible layer that protects from corrosion. It protects by interrupting the electrochemical corrosion process caused by moisture, oxygen and contaminants in the atmosphere.
