Clear Pak BIO is a new addition to Daubert Cromwell’s line of chemically engineered VCI poly films. It has excellent physical properties allowing it to survive the rigors of harsh handling, inspection and international shipment. It protects metal parts and components from damage and  contamination, and will keep them rust free. The corrosion inhibitors in Clear Pak BIO are derived from plant extracts, an innovative departure from conventional VCIs that contain sodium nitrites or typical amines. They are safe, effective, and exceed global health and safety standards. The absence of regulated substances makes workplace auditing unnecessary and perhaps most importantly, provides peace of mind.

  • Ratio of chemicals in the formulation.
  • Amount of volatile corrosion inhibitors on the paper or in the film.
  • pH of the finished product.
  • Water solubility and the effectiveness of the corrosion inhibitor in the presence of moisture and/or high humidity.

Daubert Cromwell vci packaging stops rust
Stop rust with vci packagingNot all VCIs are created equal and often, one VCI formulation that works under one set of conditions will not work under another. One has to take into account all aspects of the process, metals composition, packaging, storage and shipping conditions in order to select the right packaging media and VCI formulation.

A large number of combinations are available from Daubert Cromwell and chances are we have one that will be effective in any specific application. To learn more about packaging your products with Daubert Cromwell®, please view our Packaging Design Criteria file.
