The SMARTY PAK™ is ARMOR’s new double-duty rust prevention secret weapon. We developed the SMARTY PAK specifically for use in environments where both moisture control and vapor corrosion inhibitors (VCI) are required to adequately protect metal from rust. When these new rust-prevention power PAKs are in use, metal parts are protected in two ways as the ARMOR SMARTY PAK not only removes moisture and humidity, it also releases corrosion-inhibiting vapors to prevent rust.
In simplest terms, SMARTY PAKs are one-part emitter and one-part desiccant. They emit ARMOR VCI Nanotechnology™ (our “secret formula” for vapor corrosion inhibitor) to form a protective shield on the surface of metal and they adsorb moisture to remove it from the packaging or storage environment. This give-and-take feature is why we call SMARTY PAKs the “deadly-duo of rust prevention.”
Wonder what it is that really gives the SMARTY PAK its “smarts?” ARMOR uses a specialty desiccant in its design – this specialty desiccant not only adsorbs moisture faster than traditional desiccants, but it holds on to the moisture even at high temperatures. Smarter yet, SMARTY PAKs are available in three sizes, they deliver multi-metal protection, and they are non-dusting and lint-free making them ideal for use in applications where fibrous packaging materials are not allowed.
If you’re looking to protect metal parts during packaging, storage, transport or export, ARMOR SMARTY PAKs could be the rust-prevention solution needed to earn you the title of Smarty Pants!
