Corrosion Inhibitor Powder (VCI) Application Procedures
Powder Application For average conditions the recommended dosage is 0.30 ounces (weight) per cubic foot (28 Liters) of enclosed space.( 300 g/cubic meter) Concentration can be increased to protect metals under more severe conditions. Powder is applied and then the treated area is closed or sealed.
Solution Application For average conditions the recommended dosage as a solution is a 0.25% in water (based upon weight). This solution is recommended as a hydrostatic test fluid. Concentration can be increased to protect metals under more severe conditions. The treated area is then closed or sealed.
