VCI/VpCIs are compounds that protect against corrosion through the vapor phase. These active compounds are soluble in water, allowing them to be absorbed from the surrounding atmosphere onto the test strip. This VCI/VpCI® Vapor Detection Test Kit is specifically developed for detecting the presence of vapor-phase corrosion inhibitors (VCI/VpCI®) emitted from various corrosion inhibiting products: paper, foam, powders, oil- and water-based rust preventative, etc.
The kit contains enough strips and solution for 50 tests. The shelf life of the solution is 2 years.
This kit is not appropriate for testing VCI/VpCI® films because of significant pre-conditioning time requirement.
