VpCI® protects a multitude of metal products. Spraying or dipping pipe and other tubulars with VpCI® provides fast and economical protection for exterior and interior surfaces. In addition, waterbased concentrates provide corrosion protection and lubricant action for hot rolled, cold rolled, galvanized and aluminized steels, copper, aluminum, brass and other products, eliminating the need for oil and oil-water emulsion rust preventives. Our technically trained staff can help you decide which product you need for long lasting and complete protection of your corrosion sensitive products.
For edge treatment VpCI® is applied in just seconds to the edges of coils or stacks with conventional manual or automated spray equipment. Traditional rust preventives do not stop speckling on the internal metal layers. Humidity and condensed moisture easily penetrate the coil forming a highly corrosive environment inside the coil. Rust, speckling and staining can develop in minutes under these conditions. VpCI® vapor phase action migrates wherever humidity and corrosive agents can penetrate to provide complete corrosion protection. It protects external surfaces as well as internal layers of coils or sheets.
VpCI® treatments virtually eliminate economic loss due to rust, speckling, staining and other forms of corrosion. You can eliminate claims and returns while improving the quality of your product. As a result, your processing will become more streamlined, allowing for more efficient operation.
