VCI Lubricating Liquids

VCI lubricating liquids protect exposed metals and unpainted metal parts from corrosion during manufacture, use, storage, export, lay-up, and preservation. They can be applied using conventional industrial equipment by brushing, fogging, or spraying into hard-to-reach areas.

Safeguarding Metal Components

Anti-rust lubricants find application in industries where metal components are exposed to moisture, humidity, or other corrosive environments. These liquids can be easily removed using solvent-based thinners or alkaline cleaners.

VCI corrosion inhibitor fluid release chemical compounds into the surrounding atmosphere, creating a protective layer on metal surfaces that inhibits electrochemical reactions causing rust and corrosion. Their volatile nature enables them to reach enclosed spaces, providing comprehensive corrosion protection, even in hidden or difficult-to-access areas.

Comprehensive Corrosion Protection

These anti-rust liquids effectively prevent rust and corrosion on various metal surfaces, including steel, aluminium, copper, and brass. Depending on the product, they can be used for indoor and outdoor metal storage, offering varying protection times.

  • Protects exposed metals and unpainted parts from corrosion during various stages
  • Easy application with conventional industrial equipment (brushing, fogging, or spraying)
  • Effective rust and corrosion prevention on steel, aluminium, copper, and brass
  • Suitable for indoor and outdoor metal storage with variable protection times
  • Creates a protective layer by releasing chemical compounds to inhibit electrochemical reactions
  • Volatile nature reaches hidden or hard-to-access areas for comprehensive protection
  • Ideal for industries exposed to moisture, humidity, or corrosive environments
  • Easy removal using solvent-based thinners or alkaline cleaners when needed

VCI Lubricating Oil (1100)

The VCI lubricating oil protects metals from corrosion in closed systems such as fuel tanks and hydraulic and coolant circulating systems. This process is achieved by preventing the build-up of condensation inside equipment during lay-up and preservation. The Nox-Rust 1100 is ready to use straight out of the pail or drum; oil removal is not required when applied.

  • Protection Time: Up to 2 years indoors within an enclosed space
  • Appearance: Light golden lubricating oil
  • Metal Protection: Ferrous, iron, steel

VCI Lubricating Oil (1101)

The internal combustion engine VCI lubricating oil is used in enclosed systems with a combination of metals. The petroleum-based lubricating oil can be used at full strength in ferrous and non-ferrous metal systems, applicable in fuel tanks, gear housing, storage tanks, clutch compartments, crankcases and transmissions. It can also be fogged into shipping cases to provide unpainted auto and truck body sections protection from corrosion during shipments.

  • Protection Time: Up to 2 years indoors within an enclosed space
  • Appearance: Light golden lubricating oil
  • Metal Protection: Steel, iron, zinc, aluminium
  • Also available in convenient 11 oz. aerosol spray

VCI Lubricating Oil (1200)

The water-based VCI solution is made for closed systems. Phosphates, heavy metals and nitrites-free, this solution can preserve equipment and piping systems that need to undergo hydrostatic testing before shipping or storage. To use the water-soluble VCI, apply by fogging or spraying. The silica-free liquid leaves no residue. No special surface preparation is required before the equipment shutdown.

  • Protection Time: 1-5 years stored indoors in a sealed system
  • Appearance: Clear to tinted odourless liquid
  • Metal Protection: continuous protection for ferrous metals, compatible with copper and galvanised steel
  • Storage Conditions: Indoor

VCI Lubricating Film (4101)

The light oily film is designed to provide steel parts and equipment stored in humid conditions or areas where acids fumes are present, such as pickling operations from corrosion. Non-staining and water-displacing the 4101 can be applied easily by dip, spray, flow coat or brush. To remove the film layer, use petroleum solvent, caustic cleaner or steam.

VCI Lubricating Oil (9800)

The water-soluble, moisture-absorbing, fingerprint-removing VCI liquid is designed to spray or fog into closed spaces such as pipes, tanks and turbines. The liquid is also applicable in the process, during hydraulic testing, as a long-term rust inhibitor during lay-up or storage, or even for long periods of inactivity. Removal is not required.

  • Protection Time: 1-2 years indoor covered
  • Appearance: Clear, amber liquid
  • Metal Protection: Steel, iron, zinc, and aluminium
  • Storage Conditions: Outside, protected or unprotected

VCI Coating (CLV)

The water-based transit coating is designed to provide an environmentally safe, long-term preservative coating and edge protection for harsh environments. With low VOC, excellent high humidity, and salt spray protection, the safe code CLV is often used as a final corrosion prevention coating on metal parts before storage, shipment, and the protection of threaded bolt holes for outdoor equipment storage.

  • Protection Time: Up to 2 years covered outdoor; 5 years covered indoor
  • Appearance: Dry film is firm, waxy
  • Metal Protection: Ferrous metals

VCI Coating (CF)

The general-purpose, water-based rust preventive solution has a blend of inhibitors, emulsifiers, and surfactants deposited on a soft greasy film from a water emulsion system to protect ferrous metal surfaces, offering excellent high humidity and salt spray protection.

  • Protection Time: 2 years covered outdoors; 5 years covered indoor
  • Appearance: Deposits a soft, greasy amber film
  • Metal Protection: Steel, cast iron, ferrous alloys
