MULTIguard (Anticorrision Paper)
VCI-anticorrosion paper MULTIguard constantly provides small amount of active anticorrosion ingredients (the VCI principle: Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor.) In packages made with this paper, a protecting atmosphere is built up, which reliably prevents corrosion of metal parts. MULTIguard papers work both in contact and from a distance.
Scope of protection
Steel, cast iron (only on contact), zinc, copper, chrome, bronze, brass, pure aluminium, pure tin. Care to be taken with cadmium, lead, soldering tin, magnesium, wolfram and molybdenum.
For demanding application, e. g. protection of cast iron, we recommend our BRANOrost anticorrosion paper. Duration of protection: 12 months for cast, and 18 months for steel, iron and non-ferrous metals.
Metal parts which should be protected from corrosion during production, shipping and storage can be packaged in MULTIguard papers (e. g. simply wrap the metal parts with MULTIguard papers, line the container, interleavings). The distance between MULTIguard papers and metal depends on the package volume and the time permitted for a protecting atmosphere to build up. A rule of thumb: for steel, a full protection is achieved at a distance of 30 cm after 15 minutes, for copper and alloy, at 12 cm and after 24 hours. Cast iron is only protected on contact. The airtighter the package, the longer the protection will last.
It is not necessary to oil or to grease. Metal parts are ready for use any time without cleaning, because this system provides corrosion protection and simple, environmentally-friendly handling in one. The metal is clean and dry to package.
MULTIguard-VCI-products are to be used as described above (packaging/protection of certain kinds of metal pieces). Other-wise, no responsibility for caused damages can be taken.
