A Rust-Preventing Powerhouse for the Long Haul

ARMOR CRUSADER™ VCI Film is ultra tough in protecting ferrous and non-ferrous metals from rust and corrosion in long-term storage. It’s three-layer construction stands up to the most demanding conditions.

The CRUSADER positions ARMOR VCI Nanotechnology™ (a.k.a., our “secret recipe” for vapor corrosion inhibitor) on the inside layer closest to metal/metal parts to maximize its effectiveness.  The outer layers are designed for additional barrier protection, increased durability and puncture resistance resulting in an 80% decrease in oxygen transmission and five times the barrier protection over single-layer films.  Whether you use sheets of the CRUSADER to wrap metal parts, or vci bags or tubing made from the CRUSADER to enclose them, your metal parts are protected for the long haul!

ARMOR products are in-stock and ready-to-ship with no order minimums through our ARMOR Stock & Ready® program.
