VCI Transit Coatings
Volatile corrosion inhibitors (VCI) transit coatings are liquid solutions that protect ferrous metal equipment and fabricated parts from rust and corrosion during transportation. The VCI rust inhibitors create a protective layer on the metal surface as a barrier against environmental moisture, oxygen, and corrosive elements.
Safeguard Metal Equipment
The VCI protective solutions protect against seawater damage, acid rain, insects, smoke, pollution, bird droppings, dirt, and debris. VCI transit coatings maintain the integrity and longevity of metal components throughout transit and storage.
Applying the liquid solutions or coatings on metal parts before packaging and transportation. Once applied, the VCI chemicals evaporate, forming the protective layer. These rust-preventive coatings provide comprehensive protection against moisture and atmospheric elements, ensuring that the transported goods arrive in good condition, free from corrosion-related issues.
VCI Liquid (1150)
The solvent-free rust inhibitor coating protects unpainted machinery in shipping crates without smearing or waiting for it to cure. The blue thixotropic coating sets up quickly, stays soft and grease-like and is self-healing, providing corrosion protection for up to 5 years indoors. To remove the layer, use pressure wash or wipe it off with a cloth in some applications. It is ideal for ferrous metal equipment and fabricated metals packed in wood crates, pallets, or corrugated and other acidic packaging that can cause corrosion.
VCI Liquid (3100)
This VCI liquid protects metals stored outside for over five years. In salt fog testing, the most rigorous ASTM standard for measuring the effectiveness of corrosion protection protects equipment and machinery throughout shipment. The VCI liquid can be handled after 3-6 hours and set up within 12-24 hours. When required, it can be removed using solvent-based thinners, vapour degreasing, or hot alkaline wash. Protects both ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
VCI Liquid (3100G)
This VCI liquid has similar corrosion protection properties to the 3100. However, in a thicker consistency, it clings to vertical surfaces. The liquid adheres to 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 outdoor equipment beneath a cover or tarp.
