Corrosion-Resistant Solutions for the Mining and Industrial Sectors

Australian Inhibitor (AI) provides protective and corrosion-resistant solutions for ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys in the mining, military, engineering and automotive industries.

Our custom-made films, foils, papers and specialised liquids contain vapour corrosion inhibitors (VCI) and contact corrosion inhibitors (CCI), which have become a critical part of our end products.

Our VCIs form a physical hydrophobic layer that prevents water and moisture from directly contacting the metal surface, ensuring high-quality protection across a wide range of applications.

Moisture-resistant solutions for industrial equipment

AI’s range of films, foils, papers and liquids offers high-performance protection from water and moisture and is customised for each application.

Our VCIs and CCIs emit a vapour of inhibitors that build a 3-5 micron skin over metal surfaces, which prevents oxidisation and corrosion.

Corrosion-resistant solutions for heavy machinery

AI’s barrier protectants are suitable for adverse environments in the mining, offshore and onshore industries.

Our products provide effective corrosion-resistance to heavy machinery, as well as oil and gas pumps and piping systems.

We incorporate our vast range of materials and in-depth knowledge to ensure we offer the correct solution for your requirements, ranging from simple requests to complex projects.

AI also collaborate with engineers and workshops worldwide while delivering specialised fabrication capabilities.

Quality assurance

AI focuses on providing high-performance products to the industrial sector.

We have invested in an on-site laboratory and a range of specialised equipment, as well as tested our products to maintain our high levels of quality.

Our specialist equipment provides results measured against relevant Australian Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards and we aim to consistently maintain and improve our products.

Working closely with extruders who are also leaders of their industry, we develop a range of multilayer films offering increased strength, improved barrier properties and high-quality seal strength.

About Australian Inhibitor

Established in 1955, AI operates from Dandenong, Victoria, Australia, and serves a wide range of industries such as automotive, engineering, defence, marine, mining and military.

In 2014, we expanded our capabilities to offer complete packaging solutions to include cardboard cartons, heavy-duty shrink films, speciality tapes and timber pallets.

In addition, we offer a complete packaging solution from product design, testing and sampling through to production.

We have been recognised at Global Awards for Packaging Materials in 2006, 2011 and 2013/2014, which is the result of vigorous laboratory testing with a focus on a wide range of industrial applications.
