Vapor Barrier Packaging (VCI) & Rust Protection in Holbrook, MA

International ocean shipping environments can be very unforgiving. When shipping long distances via ocean freight, you often need to implement protection against moisture and water vapor. Here at Crate This, we have several different methods for you to choose from when it comes to moisture and vapor protection. Like with our crates, all of our materials and packing equipment is customized to the exact specifications of what you are shipping, how you are shipping it, and where you are shipping it. For example, if you are shipping electronics overseas we will recommend a strong vapor barrier packaging solution that can prevent water vapor in the air from harming the electronic components of what you are shipping. 

We work with many commercial and industrial companies to help them get customized protection for whatever they need to ship. We design and craft unique and durable crating that can be used again and again to provide high-quality protection. With Crate This you can keep your electronics, medical equipment, precious metals, mechanical engineering machinery, lathes, presses, and equipment of all kinds, protected at all times. We offer foil bags, rust inhibitor shrink film in 6 and 7 or 8 mil, VCI barrier in 6 and 7 or 8 mil, and desiccant pouches inside shrink wrap.


What is Vapor Barrier Packaging or VCI?

Vapor barrier packaging or VCI (Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors) is a layer of protection between your product, and the outside elements. There are several different forms of VCI, whether it be via heat sealed bag, heat sealed shrink or coated paper. Here at Crate This, our team has the materials and the expertise to customize your crating and packing materials so you are never overpaying or under-protecting your shipment. We take every factor into consideration from the specific items you are shipping to how and where they will be shipped. 

VCI is an invisible barrier, and the last line of defense for your customer’s product in regards to rust and corrosion. A tiny layer, usually only a few molecules thick, adhere to the products surface creating a layer of protection at all times during shipping. As we mentioned above, there are a few different ways to apply vapor barrier packaging. For example, sealable bags can be used which can prevent damage caused from rain, water vapor in the air, or condensation. 

At Crate This, our teams of crating experts work with our clients to create the crating that provides the best level of protection for their shipment. 

How does Crate This apply VCI?

Crate This can apply VCI, 1 of 4 ways. We can wrap your product in VCI coated paper, bag desiccant under shrink wrap, seal your product in a foil bag, or heat shrink 6 and 7 or 8 mil thick VCI film around your product (the highest level of protection). Crate This can perform any of the above on-site at your facility or we can perform the work at our state of the art facility in the Greater Boston area.
