With production stopped in many plants across the nation and around the world, it’s crucial to plan accordingly to protect your metal parts from rust. Preventing rust during work stoppage will make it easier to return to work and continue operations when possible. There are several ways to prevent rust during work stoppage, and exercising this preventative maintenance step will protect your parts in the future.
How to Prevent Rust During Work Stoppage
Rust occurs whenever metal is exposed to moisture and oxygen. This also includes humidity in the air. The only way to prevent rust is to prevent metal from coming into contact with moisture and oxygen, though this can be a challenge. ARMOR Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) makes it easy.
ARMOR VCI products provide a shield against rust by preventing air and moisture from contacting the metal surface. There are several types of ARMOR VCI, so you can easily protect products of all types. ARMOR VCI is mess-free, oil free, safe, environmentally-friendly and easy to use for all types of metal components. There’s no need for messy grease or oil, or hazardous rust-removal products. With a single sheet of paper or film, you can effortlessly prevent rust during work stoppage at your manufacturing plant, warehouse, or other facility.
VCI film creates a protective shield around metal by combining low-density polyethylene film with vapor corrosion inhibitor technology. Available in rolls, sheets, bags or tubing, VCI film is highly versatile and easy to use for small and large components. With six different types, including VCI film for outdoor use, use in harsh indoor environments, and VCI film that stretches, you can easily protect all types of metal components from rust.
VCI paper combines Kraft paper with VCI technology to make a lightweight, rust-preventative paper. Simply wrap metal parts in VCI paper and the VCI ions will fill the space, creating a protective shield around the part. These ions repel moisture and prevent rust from forming, without creating any grease or residue on the part itself.
VCI emitters work similarly to VCI paper by producing VCI ions that displace and repel moisture. VCI emitters give off rust-preventing ions from polyether foam or chipboard hosting the VCI protective technology. By simply placing the VCI emitter into an enclosed space, such as a sealed box, crate, or bag, the VCI ions will displace moisture and prevent rust from forming on any metal parts in the enclosed space.
Dry Coat Rust Preventative Spray
In most cases, ARMOR VCI rust prevention solutions will effectively stop rust on your parts or equipment. However, VCI film, paper, or emitters won’t work suit your needs, we also provide a rust prevention liquid: Dry Coat. This is not like using oil or grease. Dry Coat is sprayable, easy to apply, and dries fast, within 30 minutes, leaving no mess behind. Our water-based solution is also safe and environmentally friendly, so there are no risks to your facility or workers.
With over 140 rust prevention and rust removal products that are a part of our Stock & Ready program in which our products are in-stock and ready-to-ship, we make it easy to prevent rust during work stoppage, or get back going again if rust hits. Use these rust-preventing products to keep your parts and components safe and secure during shut-down, so you can get started again with ease.

With production stopped, it’s crucial to plan accordingly to protect your metal parts from rust. When it comes to rust prevention for more than 40 years Armor Protective Packaging® has offered a full line of rust prevention and rust removal products that a re clean, safe, easy to use, and extremely effective at preventing rust on your metal parts during a work stoppage.
Give us three minutes and we’ll show you how ARMOR’s new rust-prevention power packs earned their official name: the ARMOR SMARTY PAK.
We took the best of both worlds in rust prevention – desiccant and VCI — and combined them into one premium product that both removes moisture and humidity AND releases corrosion-inhibiting vapors to protect metal parts. Better yet, any user of ARMOR SMARTY PAKs is instantly upgraded in status to a “Smarty Pants” – your LinkedIn profile will never be the same!
New ARMOR SCRIM VCI paper is the “Iron Man” of the ARMOR WRAP® line of VCI paper. When you use SCRIM to wrap metal or metal parts, you get all of the rust prevention and metal protection benefits of ARMOR WRAP, but on steroids!
SCRIM VCI paper stands up to the heavy demands of large metal pieces, bulky metal cargo, bar stock and/or their sharp edges or corners. It is designed to be strong and durable while still remaining lightweight and easy-to-use and it offers the added benefit of barrier protection against moisture and contaminants. When used properly, ARMOR SCRIM VCI paper can keep ferrous and non-ferrous metals rust-free for up to 3 years.
The secret to SCRIM VCI paper’s strength is its triple coating. One side of the paper is coated with web-like fiberglass scrim to add enhanced strength, puncture resistance and stability. This same side of the paper is also coated with low-density polyethylene, which provides a barrier against moisture, dirt or debris. The other side of the paper contains ARMOR VCI Nanotechnology™ — our secret formula for vapor corrosion inhibitor. When ARMOR SCRIM VCI paper is used in an enclosed space with metal/metal parts, the VCIs activate to form a blanket of protection on the surface of metal that repels rust.
If you are looking to prevent rust during the storage or transport of large metal parts, pieces, or bulky metal cargo, call on ARMOR’s SCRIM VCI paper for reinforcement.
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!
Metal castings; stampings; forgings; process metals – protect them all from rust with ARMOR’s FOUNDRY Film.
Did you know that ARMOR specifically developed its FOUNDRY Film to protect metals exposed to the severe hot, dirty and humid conditions present in metal foundries, stamping plants, machine shops and other metal processing facilities? We constructed it for strength, puncture resistance and produced it in a dark gray color to conceal metal dust and other imperfections.
If you’re looking to put the “double whammy” on rust, our FOUNDRY Film fits the bill – not only does it act as a physical barrier against dirt, dust and moisture, it is also a rust preventative thanks to ARMOR’s proprietary VCI (vapor corrosion inhibitor) Nanotechnology™. Foundry Film contains ARMOR VCI, which emits vapors that adhere to the surface of metal to form an invisible protective layer that shields metal from rust and corrosion.
Better yet, a portion of FOUNDRY Film is made from recycled materials. Remnants of ARMOR VCI film are recycled as part of the FOUNDRY Film manufacturing process, thereby reducing ARMOR’s operational waste, decreasing the cost of the film; while at the same time increasing the film’s VCI content.
Learn more by giving this FOUNDRY Film video recap a view.
Rest assured that FOUNDRY Film is in line with the ARMOR standards we set for all of our products – it is clean, safe, easy to use, non-toxic, environmentally friendly and most importantly … Effective. Simply put, ARMOR FOUNDRY Film is Forged to Protect!
ARMOR recognized that its customers’ purchase expectations in the workplace had evolved. Customers want their purchase experience to include simple ordering, quick turnaround and fast shipping. In response, ARMOR studied the models of customer ease and convenience perfected by innovators such as Amazon Prime® and Little Caesars® HOT-N-READY® and applied them to the world of rust prevention “VCI packaging.”
ARMOR transformed its internal operations and added three times the inventory of in-stock products, we refined our order response systems to ensure quick processing, and we enhanced our shipping capabilities. The result, we call ARMOR Stock & Ready® and a key component of the program is the official ARMOR Stock & Ready Promise:
ARMOR STOCK & READY PROMISE:
All items on the Stock & Ready product list are in-stock and ready-to-ship with no order minimums.
Stock & Ready orders placed by 1 p.m. EST will ship by next business day
The concept isn’t new, but it is genius. We liken the ARMOR Stock & Ready program to the success that many pizza chains have found in offering pre-made pizzas that are ready-and-waiting for customers. While the pizza may not be customized to the customer’s exact preference, the ease and convenience of eliminated planning and wait time, make the small compromise worthwhile.
Let us show you what we mean in this 90–second animated video. We line up our Stock & Ready next to the pizza industry’s Hot-N-Ready® to demonstrate our product delivery method similarities. While Stock & Ready doesn’t offer double cheese, it does offer a full menu of its own benefits:
Simple to order
No order minimums
Quick processing and turbo fast shipping
Reduce inventory storage
Save money previously spent on required, large orders
Replacing custom products with closely-matched stock items not only saves time but it can benefit your bottom line. Not only are the items ordered from our Stock & Ready product list in stock and ready-to-ship, many times they are more economical.
As part of Stock & Ready, we developed our Stock-to-Save Matchmaker. Just ask, and we will look at your current custom products and match them with similar ARMOR stock products. We will generate a list of Stock-to-Save options that will make you a convert.
Finally, Stock & Ready offers a wide selection of rust preventing ARMOR POLY VCI bags and bin liners that are pre-sized to fit the shipping and storage containers used by many OEMs. We uploaded the dimensions and container codes for many of the shipping and storage containers used by 13 of the largest OEMs into our Container Compatibility Finder. Our finder instantly generates a custom recommendation of ARMOR POLY bags most compatible with your specified container. Better yet, Stock & Ready will have the recommended bags in stock and ready-to-ship when you order.
ARMOR introduced its new FOUNDRY Film™, made from recycled ARMOR VCI material and resin to produce a strong, puncture resistant film developed specifically to protect metals exposed to the severe hot and humid conditions present in metal foundries, stamping plants, machine shops and other metal processing facilities. FOUNDRY Film’s manufacturing process allows for decreased cost with increased VCI content.
At ARMOR, we offer products that are designed to provide solutions to the problems and damage caused by rust and corrosion. We took this same “ARMOR SOLUTIONS” approach when producing a series of short videos that highlight the specific benefits of each product and the suggested uses and application “how tos”. This installment of ARMOR SOLUTIONS turns the camera on ARMOR POLY VCI Film. In just 90 seconds, we show the range of applications that the ARMOR POLY line offers for wrapping large metal parts and industrial equipment in preparation for export.

Over the past year, ARMOR has worked to transition those customers using its ARMOR WRAP® R and 352 VCI formulation paper to its new ARMOR WRAP Global Paper (or ARMOR G Paper for short). This transition is the equivalent of an ARMOR WRAP “upgrade”—customers using ARMOR’s R and 352 Paper just moved from “business class” to “first class” with ARMOR G Paper at no extra cost! We say, fasten your seatbelt and enjoy the benefits.
ARMOR WRAP’s Global Paper meets all international content standards and it features the next generation of ARMOR’s VCI Nanotechnology with its advanced vapor phase protection. In addition, this “international sensation” is a show stopper—it is compatible with a larger range of ferrous and non-ferrous metals; available in three different basis weight papers; and its multi-metal formulation reduces/eliminates inventory of multiple papers. For more than five years, ARMOR G Paper has been thoroughly tested in both accelerated humidity lab testing and in the field (for select applications) all over the world. The results were resounding: ARMOR G Paper outperformed and was far superior to the leading competitive papers in the industry and even to the ARMOR WRAP R and 352 formulations.
The ARMOR WRAP G Paper is available in 30G, 35G and 60G providing direct replacements for all ARMOR WRAP R and 352 Papers (conversion examples include 30G replaces 30R, 35R or 352 and 35G replaces 35R or 352).
ARMOR Global “G” Paper Features
Meets international content standards (REACH, RoHS, CPL)
Contains no sodium nitrite
New formulation offers superior vapor phase protection compared to competitors’ papers and ARMOR’s R and 352 Paper
Is a true Multi-Metal Paper (ferrous and most other metals)
Works on most metals thereby reducing the inventory of different papers needed.
