ARMOR WRAP® MPI VCI paper is a multi-tasking, rust-prevention paper for multiple metal types. But, what ARMOR WRAP MPI paper is best at is keeping non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, brass, copper, galvanized, tin, corrosion-freaking-free!

In 2019, ARMOR fine-tuned its MPI formulation and after two years of lab and field-trial testing, it debuted a new-and-improved ARMOR WRAP MPI VCI paper with enhanced corrosion inhibiting performance specifically for aluminum and galvanized metals.

It’s the combination of neutral, pH Kraft paper and ARMOR VCI Nanotechnology® (a.k.a., our “secret recipe” for vapor corrosion inhibitor) that give this rust-prevention paper its “punch.” Once metal parts are wrapped or enclosed in ARMOR MPI paper, the VCIs activate to form a shield of protection on the surface of metal that displaces moisture and repels rust.

ARMOR WRAP MPI is nitrite free, environmentally friendly, recyclable, renewable and it protects both non-ferrous and ferrous metals** from rust and corrosion for up to 3 years. **However, if metal is exclusively ferrous, ARMOR WRAP G formulation is recommended.
