Defense Industry VCI Film

Defending the Defense Industry from Corrosion

The aerospace and defense industries are major economic drivers in communities throughout the country, representing approximately 3.5 million jobs. And while these industries are focused on defending national interests, they themselves need defending too — from rust and corrosion.

Boselon®, the world’s first and best VCI packaging, is specially formulated to offer effective corrosion protection for the aerospace and defense industries.

Boselon® MIL is qualified by the Department of Defense as meeting all MIL-PRF-22019E standards.

Corrosion is the Enemy

Corrosion can stop a 60-ton $6 million tank in its tracks, and render the most fearsome military equipment useless. Before they can ever reach the battlefield, exposed metal parts first need to conquer the fight against corrosion. When your company is responsible for producing rust-free equipment and parts for aerospace and defense, you need the superior strength and maximum protection of Boselon®‘s vapor corrosion inhibitors.

A Brand-new Grade of Boselon® for Aerospace and Defense

In September of 2023, we were proud to introduce a new grade of Boselon® for the defense and aerospace markets, Boselon® MIL. Boselon® MIL has been qualified by the Department of Defense as passing MIL-PRF-22019E.

Boselon® MIL is the best choice for shipping and storing multi-metal parts used in the defense industry, even when those parts must stand up to the harsh conditions of warehousing on a naval aircraft carrier.

How does corrosion impact the aerospace and defense markets?

The deleterious effect of corrosion on the U.S. military’s arsenal of large machinery, heavy duty equipment, and defense systems has been described as a significant and ongoing problem costing the U.S. Defense Department over $20 billion annually and contributing heavily to the life-cycle costs of military weapons and infrastructure.

The impact of corrosion on aircraft has proven deadly when the corrosive effects of rust and “pitting” has caused airplanes to lose propellers, turbine blades, sections of the fuselage, wings, and even landing gear.

Large multi-metal machinery and heavy duty machined parts demand the corrosion protection of Boselon® throughout manufacturing, shipping and long term storage. There is no room for error.

When was BOSELON® created?

Aicello Corporation introduced Boselon® as the world’s first volatile corrosion inhibiting film in 1969. It has a proven track record of more than half a century of being the ideal rust prevention packaging method for metals. It can withstand severe shipping conditions and meet long-term storage needs.

Where is AICELLO Corporation located?

Aicello Corporation’s American headquarters is in Princeton, New Jersey. There is also an office located in central Ohio. In addition, Aicello has offices in Asia, Europe and other parts of North America.

Boselon®’s market share is growing in the United States. Boselon® has more than an 80% market share in Japan and is used by most Japanese automotive original equipment manufacturers.

How does BOSELON® film prevent rust and corrosion?

The volatile corrosion inhibitors encapsulated in BOSELON® continuously vaporize from the polyethylene film. It forms an active protective molecular membrane on the metal surface and effectively prevents the formation of rust.

What types of metal does BOSELON® best protect?

Boselon® VCI products are specifically designed to effectively work on cast iron, iron, galvanized steel, aluminum and copper. Speak with a Boselon® specialist to find the correct grade of Boselon® for your needs.

Are there industries best suited for BOSELON® film?

Yes, Boselon®’s corrosion inhibitor VCI is frequently used in the automotive, linear rail, heavy machinery, foundry and casting, metal stamping, and international export industries. Its own unique properties make it ideal for use on automated packaging lines and conveyor systems as well.

Are there multiple BOSELON® VCI products?

Yes, clients can choose from a variety of VCI film grades based upon the type of metal and its applications. Metals protected by Boselon® vapor corrosion protection include cast iron, iron, galvanized steel, aluminum and copper.

Does BOSELON® offer specialized VCI packaging options?

Yes, Boselon® offers optimal VCI packaging solutions to meet its clients’ diverse corrosion protection needs. Material forms include flat bags, gusseted bags, square bottom bags, individually cut sheets, VCI stretch film, and both perforated and non-perforated rolls. Please let your Boselon® rust prevention specialist know if you need other packaging needs as they are constantly developing new items.

How do BOSELON® clients immediately know if their orders arrived without rust and corrosion?

Boselon®’s clear film enables clients to visually inspect the contents of the metal products upon arrival. There is no need to open the sealed environment and expose the products to the elements. Clients can confidently use the product for immediate production or place them in long-term storage.

Is BOSELON® cost efficient for its clients?

Boselon®’s high quality volatile corrosion inhibitor film and packaging reduces its clients’ total costs. Its corrosion inhibiting protection and packaging are completed in a single process, which minimizes labor costs and maximizes productivity and product effectiveness. In addition, with Boselon®, there is no rust so there are no frustrating expenses for disrupted production schedules, replacement costs and third-party audits.

How do BOSELON®’s rust prevention specialists provide personal support?

We request that potential clients complete the Rust Prevention Diagnostic Form to learn about your specific needs. After the form is received and reviewed, a rust prevention specialist will contact you. The specialist will personally work with you to provide the best custom solutions to meet your anti-corrosion packaging needs.

Rust Prevention Diagnostic Form

Is BOSELON® film recyclable?

Yes, Boselon® VCI Film, VCI packaging and VCI bags are recyclable.

Does BOSELON® have a Technical Center?

Yes, the Boselon® Technical Center is a dedicated facility where Aicello continues the research and development practices that brought the world Boselon®. The center is continually improving Boselon® VCI films while adding additional grades for each industry and use.

In more detail, what is BOSELON®’s corrosion inhibiting system?

The volatile corrosion inhibitors encapsulated in Boselon® vaporize from the film continuously. These inhibitors condense and form an active protective molecular membrane of corrosion inhibitors on the metal surface.

If moisture condensation occurs inside of a package, vapor corrosion inhibitors are readily absorbed in the moisture, yielding a corrosion inhibiting effect.

When humid air from outside of the package permeates through the film, encapsulated corrosion inhibitors in the film are absorbed by the moisture. The moisture containing the corrosion inhibitors condenses on the metal surfaces and forms a VCI molecular membrane for continuous protection from rust.
