VCI Transit Coatings

VCI Transit Coatings

VCI Transit Coatings are Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) liquids incorporated with a unique blend of corrosion inhibitors to protect metal and most painted surfaces from rusting and corrosion during transit. When applied, the VCI Transit Coatings acts as a protective barrier against seawater, acid rain, insects, bird droppings, smoke, pollution, dirt, and debris.

Now more than ever, manufacturers of large equipment need ways to protect their products from factory to delivery. The shift away from heavy, environmentally damaging coatings means metal surfaces are increasingly vulnerable to corrosion. Improperly protected hose fittings and connectors, for example, are now exposed to corrosion-causing conditions, especially during export.

  • Nox-Rust 1150

The Nox-Rust 1150 is a solvent-free, self-healing, non-drying, and removable rust inhibitor coating designed to protect unpainted machinery in shipping crates without smearing or waiting for it to cure. The Nox-Rust 1150 ensures exposed metals are free and protected from corrosion, allowing them to be packaged immediately, improving the speed of handling and reduces the cost of labour.

The solvent-free, blue thixotropic coating sets up quickly, stays soft and grease-like, and is self-healing. Corrosion protection can last up to 5 years indoors and 2 years outdoors. To remove the coating, use a pressure wash or wipe with a cloth in some applications. It is ideal for ferrous metal equipment and fabricated metals packed in wood crates, on pallets, in corrugated, and other acidic packaging that can cause corrosion.

    • Protection Time: Up to 5 years indoors; 2 years outdoors, covered
    • Appearance: Blue, grease-like, thixotropic liquid
    • Metal Protection: Ferrous metal equipment and fabricated parts
    • Approvals: RoHS; CAT 1E4973


  • Nox-Rust 3100

The Nox-Rust 3100 is designed to protect metals stored outside that required 5+ years of protection. In salt fog testing, which is the most rigorous ASTM standard for measuring the effectiveness of corrosion protection, the Nox-Rust 3100 outlasted the competition. The results have shown that Nox-Rust 3100 is the best choice for protecting equipment and machinery for shipments.

The Nox-Rust 3100 can be handled after 3-6 hours and sets up in 12-24 hours. When required, it can be removed by solvent-based thinners, vapour degreasing, or hot alkaline wash.

    • Protection Time: 5+ years indoor or outdoor covered; 2 years outdoor exposed
    • Appearance: Dry film is firm, amber/translucent
    • Metal Protection: Ferrous & non-ferrous metals
    • Approvals: OEM product; Manufactured to meet MIL-C-16173 Class 1 Grade 4


  • Nox-Rust 3100G

The Nox-Rust 3100G is a thickened version of the Nox-Rust 3100 with similar excellent corrosion protection properties. The thicker consistency of the 3100G allows it to cling to vertical surfaces, adhering to the metal to provide an even layer of protection on large, heavy, and vertical metal surfaces. It can be applied easily by spray or brush and is best suited for equipment stored outdoors, ideally beneath a cover or tarp.
