VCI (Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor) environmentally friendly liquids are corrosion protection products designed to provide effective metal protection while minimizing their impact on the environment. These liquids contain volatile corrosion inhibitors that are environmentally safe and non-toxic.
Eco-Friendly Corrosion Protection
These liquids are formulated using biodegradable ingredients, can break down naturally over time, and do not accumulate in the environment. VCI environmentally friendly liquids are formulated to have low VOC content, reducing their impact on the environment.
Relevant environmental regulations and guidelines typically manufacture these liquids to ensure eco-friendliness. Despite their environmentally friendly nature, VCI liquids still provide effective corrosion protection for metal surfaces. They release volatile inhibitors that create a protective layer, inhibiting the corrosion process and extending the lifespan of metal components.
VCI Liquid (EV9)
This VCI liquid protects equipment such as ship pipes, tubes, engineered parts, fabricated metals and transport equipment. Formulated with vegetable (soybean) based, a biodegradable protective coating made with edible, food-grade soybean oil has been bleached and deodorised, making it resistant to spoiling and rancid over time.
Incorporated with a unique blend of corrosion inhibitors, the liquid is formulated with organic materials that can be disposed of down the drain. Besides, it features low-VOC, non-toxic, non-flammable and completely biodegradable properties. It is also water-displacing. It has the viscosity to reach voids and recesses of intricately machined metal parts. If the removal of the solution is required, it can be done with high-pressure steam or a hot alkaline wash.
- Protection Time: 6-18 months indoor, 3-6 months outdoor covered
- Appearance: Amber, oily
- Metal Protection: Ferrous, non-ferrous
The water-based VCI solution is made for closed systems. Phosphates, heavy metals and nitrites-free, this VCI solution can preserve equipment and piping systems that need to undergo hydrostatic testing before shipping or storage. To use the water-soluble solution, apply by fogging or spraying. The silica-free liquid leaves no residue. No special surface preparation is required before the equipment shutdown.
- Protection Time: 1-5 years stored indoors in a sealed system
- Appearance: Clear to tinted odourless liquid
- Metal Protection: continuous protection for ferrous metals, compatible with copper and galvanised steel
- Storage Conditions: Indoor
