VpCI-170 foam tape rolls are 20' long x 2" wide x 1/4" thick and can be cut to fit your needs. Designed to protect metal in enclosed spaces from corrosion, the tape is effective in control boxes or cabinets to protect sensitive electronic components. It offers low maintenance protection during operation, shipping or storage. Not only do these unique tapes provide Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor protection, but they also provide antistatic protection.

Cortec VpCI products prevent corrosion through their unique VpCI action. VpCIs, or vapor corrosion inhibitors adsorb on to metal surfaces, creating a molecular layer of protection. VpCI-170 foam tape is effective against a variety of corrosive agents, including salt, airborne contaminants, H2S, SO2, NH3 and others.

VpCI-170 foam tape protects up to 1 cubic foot (28.3 liter) per linear inch (2.5 cm). Each roll comes in a resealable polybag.

VpCI-170 is extremely simple and convenient to install. Simply select a space within any enclosed device where corrosion protection would be useful. Verify the surface to which the tape will be affixed is clean and free of debris. Peel off the protective peel strip from the bottom of the tape and attach it to the clean surface. VpCI-170 tape can be installed in any position. If the enclosure is not totally airtight, or if the access doors are opened frequently, replace the VpCI-150 tape more often than every 2 years. After periods of heavy maintenance replace the tape. Additionally, spray the enclosure very lightly with ElectriCorr VpCI-238 or VpCI-239.
