Machinery Relocation


An inexpensive solution was required to protect machinery that was being relcoated from Australia to an overseas destination. The client needed to protect the mqachinery from the elements but also provide corrosion protection.


The solution was to use X-Rust outdoor VCI film. This VCI film comes in a 5.4 metre width meaning that large items of machinery can be wrappped quickly. The film is UV stabilised and comes with two way shrink, so easily conforms to the item being wrapped when heat is applied.

Electrical cabinets were provided with targeted protection by using vapor capsules.

Photographs show how machine tie downs are incorporated with the VCI film.


  • Quick wrapping process due to width of VCI outdoor film
  • Heat shrinkable and quickly conforms to equipment shape
  • Tough and durable as made from 200 micron UV stabilised plastic
  • Corrosion protection as well as protection from the elements
  • Allows equipment to be shipped on deck, reducing freight costs
