Nox-Rust VCI Powder

VCI powder provides enclosed systems and interior metal surfaces with protection from corrosion-causing elements.

  • Lay-up, preservation, and mothball applications protect equipment’s internal cavities and recesses.
  • Preserving equipment that requires hydrostatic testing before shipment and storage.
  • In a mothballed facility, the VCI powders keep machinery in working conditions.
Nox-Rust VCI Powder 1000SF

VCI powder protects ferrous metals from corrosion-causing elements. A silica-free and water-soluble powder, the anti-rust powder protects equipment during storage, lay-up, and hydrostatic testing. Available in two different forms:

  • Nox-Rust 1000SF Loose Powder

Apply the powder by dusting, fogging or dissolving it in water. Removal of powder before restarting equipment after shutdown is not required.

  • Nox-Rust 1000SF Pouch Emitter

Each pouch (8″ x 11″) contains VCI powder which can protect up to 900 cubic feet of enclosed space. The anti-rust solution can be used inside boilers, tanks, and void spaces inside vessels, turbines, and stream or condensate pipelines. The breathable polyethene sealed bag will diffuse slowly, protecting ferrous metals during extended equipment inactivity, storage or lay-up periods. 

Nox-Rust VCI Powder 1000SFG

A finely grounded version of the 1000SF, the 1000SFG features similar usage and purposes, protecting metals from corrosion and are best suited for applications where a fine powder is needed.

Nox-Rust VCI Powder 1010SFG

Silica-free and water-soluble, the 1010SFG is a finely grounded VCI powder ideal for ferrous metals, including other metals such as copper, brass, and galvanised steel. It can be applied when wet or dry and does not need to be removed before using the equipment.

Nox-Rust VCI Powder 1015

Water-soluble and silica-free, 1015 VCI powder protects ferrous metals in equipment during storage, lay-up and hydrostatic testing from corrosion and rusting. It can also be packed together in a pouch emitter which protects up to 15 cubic feet of exposed metals inside an enclosure. The pouch emitter eliminates the need to fog or spray powders.


Water-soluble and silica-free, VCI powders protect the interior metal surfaces of enclosed systems such as:

  • Boilers
  • Compressors
  • Drilling equipment
  • Heat exchangers
  • Mining equipment
  • Power generation equipment
  • Turbines
  • Tubes, pipes

Apply the anti-rust solution by dusting, sprinkling, or fogging it into an enclosed space using a low-pressure air hose or dissolving it in water. They are safe, environmentally friendly, and free from phosphates, heavy metals, and nitrates.

  • Fast-acting and effective on hard to reach surfaces
  • Powerful and long-lasting protection
  • Cost-efficient
