VCI Tuffpaulin

Product Description



Tuffpaulin as the name suggests is a highly tough plastic film with very high puncture resistance, high tear resistance, improved tensile strength, higher dart impact strength, higher resistance to tear propagation, excellent moisture barrier and is used in highly demanding applications.

RUST-X TUFFPAULIN VCI is specially designed product for the packaging of heavy equipment, armament, pallets, vehicles, automotive parts, engines, wind mills, power plant equipment, chemical plant equipment etc. Tuffpaulin is a 6 layered plastic film with pseudo thickness imparted to improve strength and reduce tear propagation. 

RUST-X TUFFPAULIN VCI film provides better corrosion protection compared to using ordinary VCI Film and provides a single product with multiple features such as abrasion protection, movement restriction, water barrier as well as moisture barrier hence providing excellent option for long term preservation. 

The TUFFPAULIN VCI film emits protective vapors, which have the tendency to neutralize the moisture as well as form a multi-molecular film on the surface of the metal and inhibit the electrolytic process of oxidation.

The film is available as tube, sheet or in the form of 3-D covers to wrap the equipment suiting the size of the equipment or the pallet. The film is very tough and cannot be stretched or punctured easily.

The film is transparent for ease of visibility of the part or equipment packed in it.


Method of Use

Tuffpaulin VCI Film is available in form of 2 dimensional bags, 3 Dimensional Bags and covers or in the form of sheet.

The product to be packed can be wrapped with RUST-X TUFFPAULIN VCI film and then heat-sealed using a continuous tong type heat sealer. This results in the formation of an enclosed atmosphere with highly inert atmosphere which resists rusting.
