VCI paper tube


VCI paper in tube is composed of a kraft paper with VCI (volatile corrosion inhibitor) anti-corrosion treatment and a PE (polyethylene) laminate layer. It is the perfect packaging to protect elongated metal parts, cylindrical or rectangular, against corrosion. It is also waterproof.

VCI paper tubes are designed and manufactured 100% tailored to the needs of each customer.


The VCI used by Inviker is nitrite-free.

This chemical compound evaporates and travels to the most remote areas of the metal inside the packaging, creating a protective molecular layer that prevents contact with any corrosive substances such as moisture or oxygen.

In addition to the long-term protection against corrosion during transportation and storage, VCI paper in tube provides high impermeability of the packaged metal parts due to the lamination layer, thus extending the life cycle of the metal components and machinery.
