ARMOR SHIELD® VCI Foam Emitter Pads

A Soft-Sided Approach to Hard-Hitting Rust Prevention

Protect small/fragile metal parts or electronics with ARMOR SHIELD® VCI Foam Emitter Pads, a soft packaging material that takes a hard line on rust prevention. We’ve combined the rust-preventing power of ARMOR’s proprietary VCI Nanotechnology™ (a.k.a., our “secret recipe” for vapor corrosion inhibitor) with open-cell polyether foam to offer a VCI emitter that provides cushion and corrosion prevention.

ARMOR SHIELD VCI Foam Emitter Pads are designed for long-term storage of ferrous and non-ferrous metals and are ideal for use in small, enclosed spaces, in the packaging of metal parts, in domestic and export shipment, inventory storage or in electrical or mechanical cabinets. While VCI Foam Emitter Pads are lightweight and flexible they provide hard-nosed protection against dirt, dust, humidity and the evils of rust.
