Over 30 years of experience as a technology leader

EXCOR is a pioneer in the field of temporary corrosion protection according to the VCI method: More than 30 years ago, EXCOR was the first provider to introduce film packaging with Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors (VCI), thus significantly simplifying the processes for the storage and shipping of bare metal components.

Following its start and the experience gained in the application of its products, EXCOR has continuously expanded its range through consistent research and development.
