ARMOR POLY® VCI Stretch Film

Stretch-and-Secure Rust Prevention

ARMOR POLY® VCI Stretch Film combines the benefit of superior stretch film with ARMOR’s proprietary VCI Nanotechnology (a.k.a., our “secret recipe” for vapor corrosion inhibitor) to protect ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Once metal is enclosed, wrapped and secured, ARMOR’s Stretch Film emits VCI which activate to form a corrosion-inhibiting shield on the surface of the metal that prevents rust.

Use ARMOR VCI Stretch Film or our heavy-gauged, 5-inch ARMOR VCI Banding Film to wrap, bundle or unitize metal parts or shipments securely with the added assurance that the film’s VCI is protecting the contents from rust and corrosion.

Available in a range of sizes, thickness, machine- or hand-grade, ARMOR VCI Stretch Film is environmentally friendly and recyclable.

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