How VCI Corrosion Protection Works

How VCI can cut costs.

VCI vapor corrosion inhibitors can now be used in every stage of the product life cycle. From the start of the production of metal stock to its actual use in the field. When properly applied VCI additives, metalworking fluids, and VCI packaging will substantially cut time and costs throughout the entire manufacturing process including the ultimate, storage, shipment, field service or final presentation of the finished product. VCIs can eliminate many extra processing steps of cleaning, degreasing, rust removal, pickling, sandblasting and re-protecting. When using VCI products you will have less re-work, fewer rejects, improved quality, reduced rust claims and longer equipment life.

Ionic Action of VCI Corrosion Protection Creates a Molecular Corrosion Inhibitor Film on Metal Surfaces

  • VCI vaporizes into the ambient air or package.
  • VCI conditions the enclosed atmosphere with a protective vapor.
  • VCI vapor migrates to all recessed areas and cavities.
  • Vapor condenses on all metal surfaces.
  • VCI ions dissolve in moisture film (water electrolyte).
  • Protective ions are attracted to metal surfaces.
  • VCI ions form a thin, mono-molecular protective film at the metal surface.
  • VCI film barrier re-heals and self-replenishes through further condensation of the vapor.
