VpCI-326 is a corrosion inhibitor oil additive for hydraulic oil and gearbox assemblies. VpCI-326 performs effectively under the adverse conditions of 100% relative humidity, and in the presence of such corrosive species as chlorides, sulfur compounds, or hydrogen sulfide. VpCI-326 contains no hazardous chromates, nitrites, or phosphate inhibitors.

VpCI-326 utilizes the finest paraffinic petroleum distillates as carriers. VpCI-326 possesses an exceedingly high flash point, enhancing in-plant safety when compared to common oil protectants.

VpCI-326 is supplied in concentrate form, which is easily diluted with lubricating, hydraulic, or preservative oils; saving shipping and inventory expense.

VpCI-326 is a broad range corrosion inhibitor not only effective on ferrous metals, but also effective on zinc, aluminum, galvanized steel, copper, cadmium, silver, brass, and many other alloys.
