  • Zerust® Natur-VCI® Film
    Zerust® Natur-VCI® series is an internationally certified fully biodegradable and compostable Volatile Corrosion Inhibiting (VCI) packaging material designed to protect metal components from rust and corrosion during shipment and short-term storage....

  • Zerust® Natur-VCI® products, with a thickness of 60 microns (2.3 mil) or less, pass the NACE Standard TM0208 VCI corrosion protection test to level 3, but also meet international standards for compostable plastics including ASTM D6400, EN 13432, and are certified 100% compostable by TUV Austria.

    End of Life Disposal
    Natur-VCI® film is engineered for safe disposal in a professionally managed composting facility, where the carbon in the film is utilized as a food source by micro-organisms to completely break-down the plastic into humus, water, and CO2. The resulting humus can be used as a natural fertilizer and/or soil amendment in agriculture. Natur-VCI® meets the ASTM D6400 “Standard Specification for Labeling of Plastics Designed to be Aerobically Composted in Municipal or Industrial Facilities” and is certified (Cert # TA8012004702) by TUV Austria for the European EN 13432 standard “Packaging – Requirements for packaging recoverable through composting and biodegradation – Test scheme and evaluation criteria for the final acceptance of packaging.”

  • Zerust® Z-PAK®
    Zerust® Z-PAK® is an economical, effective, and easy-to-use volatile corrosion inhibitor (VCI) diffuser packet that can be used alone or with other Zerust® packaging products to provide robust temporary corrosion protection for ferrous metals....

  • Zerust® Z-PAK® VCI packets emit a specially formulated VCI chemistry that quickly saturates and lands on metal surfaces located in the enclosure/packaging with the Z-PAK®. This molecular thin, temporary layer of VCI chemistry protects the metal surfaces from corrosion. Since the VCI chemistry is gaseous, hard-to-reach areas of the metal components – such as unobstructed inner surfaces, are also protected from corrosion when a sufficient amount of the VCI chemistry lands on them. Once the metal components leave the enclosure/packaging, away from the Z-PAK®, the VCI chemistry on the metal surfaces volatilizes into the air. The molecular thin layer of VCI chemistry, even when present, will not affect the physical, chemical, or structural properties of the protected metal surfaces. Your customers can work on, painting, coating, welding, processing, and/or assembling the metal parts immediately upon receiving them at the facility from the shipment/storage.
