ARMOR SEA Film™ is “Tough Stuff” Rust Prevention


There’s no sugar-coating here, instead we get straight to the point in this video on ARMOR SEA Film™.  In just 3 minutes we explain how traditional rust prevention methods aren’t tough enough to withstand harsh, outdoor conditions, while ARMOR SEA Film is made to do just that – because this film is “tough stuff.”

It’s the unique, advanced construction process used to manufacture SEA Film that is the secret sauce behind this rust-preventing VCI paper.  We combine the strongest characteristics of three films into one to offer a heavy-duty barrier against the elements; a UV light inhibitor to combat the damage of ultra violet light; and ARMOR’s proprietary VCI Nanotechnology™ to keep the surface of metal rust-free.

Click the video link below and let us show you how to outsmart Mother Nature to keep your metal parts rust-free during outdoor storage using ARMOR SEA Film.

ARMOR SEA FILM™: Extreme Protection for Extreme Conditions


If you manufacture metal parts that will be exposed to the elements during outdoor storage or overseas transport, rust and corrosion are a very real threat.  ARMOR VCI SEA Film™ is formulated to withstand Mother Nature’s most threatening outdoor conditions while protecting metal and metal parts from the damaging effects of rust and corrosion that could form as a result.

If you’re wondering how SEA Film is able to keep metal parts rust-free in extreme conditions when other VCI films can’t, we’ll let you in on the secret – three-layer construction.  We combine the strongest characteristics of three different films to manufacture this holy grail of rust-preventing VCI film and we aren’t shy about touting that ARMOR SEA Film is even more amazing when you consider that it gives high performance without high cost.



OUTSIDE LAYER:  manufactured in white exterior to reflect sunlight and contains an Ultra Violet (UV) light inhibitor to stabilize film from breaking down due to extended UV exposure and its damaging heat.

CENTER LAYER:  provides a heavy-duty physical barrier that protects metal/metal parts from moisture, contaminates and the harshest of outdoor conditions.

INSIDE LAYER:  strategically places ARMOR’s rust-preventing VCI Nanotechnology™ (a.k.a., our “secret recipe” for vapor corrosion inhibitor) closest to metal/metal parts to maximize protection.

The value of SEA Film’s unique multi-layer construction extends beyond its effectiveness in preventing rust, it offers opportunity for cost savings as well. Not only does SEA Film provide an ultra-strong physical barrier, it’s engineered to keep ARMOR’s rust-preventing VCI Nanotechnology™ (a.k.a., our “secret recipe” for vapor corrosion inhibitor) in the inner layer.  Positioning VCI close to metal parts, where it is needed most, often means that the film can be down-gauged to reduce cost without compromising performance.

If you’re looking for a VCI film that will protect metal parts even in extreme outdoor storage or shipping conditions; a film that offers quality, effectiveness and aggressive pricing; ARMOR SEA Film is the whole enchilada!


  • EASY-TO-USE:  rust prevention and containment/barrier
  • SAFE:  rust prevention free of oils, solvents and other harsh chemicals
  • ECONOMICAL:  reduced gauge = reduced cost
  • SUPERIOR PROTECTION:  made to withstand harsh outdoor environments
  • HEAVY DUTY:  three-layer construction for strength, barrier protection, UV-resistance
  • STRATEGIC VCI PLACEMENT:  VCI on inside — closest to metal parts
  • UV RESISTANT:  contains UV light inhibitor and white exterior to reflect sunlight
  • MULTI-METAL COMPATIBLE:  protects ferrous and non-ferrous metals
  • SEVERAL OPTIONS:  available in sheeting, bags or rolls

How to Prevent Rust During Work Stoppage

Prevent Shutdown Rust

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

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.

Worker placing part inside ARMOR WRAP paper

VCI Paper

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.

ARMOR SHIELD CF33 Emitter placed on top of parts

VCI Emitters

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.

ARMOR USA is Putting the Wrap on your WRAP!

The ARMOR plant in Howell, Michigan, is the proud owner of a new Impulse L-Bar Sealer with Magna-Lock & Take-Away Product Conveyor and Industrial Fan Tunnel.  Whew – that is the long and technical name for our new shrink wrap machine and at ARMOR, we see this as a game changer in delivering our very best in both product and service to our customers.

You can’t argue with “un-science,” and at ARMOR we conducted our very own side-by-side comparison that we call the ARMOR WRAP® Drop Test.  Using a stack of 1000 sheets of 12 x 12 ARMOR WRAP, we compared the results of Paper Wrapped vs. Shrink Wrapped when dropped from a whopping 68 inches.  Check out our video and see for yourself how shrink wrap scored the knockout over paper wrap, hands down!

Let it be known, from here forward, that thanks to our new heat-sealing, shrink-wrapping  mechanical wizardry, ARMOR shrink wraps stacks of ARMOR WRAP® (say that 5 times fast, we dare you!) to bring you clean, protected and condensed packaging that is ideal for shipping or storage.
