Anti-rust powder does the job

rust protection VpCI 309 powder

If you need to protect enclosed surfaces, turbines, pipes, motors, heat exchangers or the like, there is a simple, cost-effective solution. Cortec VCI powder.

Cortec's VCI powder provides a very effective, dry protection of metal surfaces in confined spaces. The rust protection evaporates and coats all exposed metal surfaces into minimum porosity.

Product characteristics

  • Provides up to 24 months of rust protection.
  • Protected parts can be transported without removing the rust protection.
  • No or very little pretreatment of surfaces to be protected.
  • Easy to apply.
  • If necessary, the vci powder is removed with compressed air or running water.
  • VpCI 609 Protects only ferrous metals. If there is copper in the metal, VpCI 308 should be used.

Method of application

Apply the powder by spraying, misting or sprinkling. After application, cover, seal or seal the protected confined space. Fogging is most easily done with a low-pressure air valve and sandblasting equipment. Large conventional sandblasting equipment can also be used.

More information about the product and how it should be used can be found on the product's technical data sheet  609 data sheet   308 data sheets.

This is how VpCI works®

VpCI®inhibitor is transported via a vapor phase (see picture) to all surfaces of the metal surface to be protected. As long as there is enough inhibitor in the vapor phase around the metal to maintain a condensed phase on the surface, adequate protection is achieved. The vapor phase only acts as a transport aid from the source to the metal surface where it builds up a molecularly thick layer as protection and thus stops the attack. All surfaces, even crevices, recesses and other inaccessible surfaces are fully protected with VpCI®25 years of use and testing guarantee a reliable result.

Cost effective
Now you avoid surface treatment before application and cleaning when unpacking. Just unpack and it's done. Saves time and labor and reduces material consumption.

Environmentally friendly
Our vci corrosion protection solutions are based solely on environmentally friendly products. Since protected components and parts do not need to be cleaned before use, this means that our vci corrosion protection is the most environmentally friendly and the most user-friendly option on the market. The corrosion protection itself is also largely recyclable.
