VpCI-387 is a high-build topcoat that provides long-term corrosion inhibition for metal substrates in tough atmospheric conditions. VpCI-387 is excellent for applications that require a thicker coating for added physical protection. VpCI-387 can be applied directly to metal or used in conjunction with a primer (provided compatibility has been checked). VpCI-387 has excellent UV light resistance. VpCI-387 is available in custom colors.


  • Consistent film build
  • High-build film (6-8 mils/150-200 microns) DFT
  • Multimetal protection
  • Long-term protection (10 years)
  • Semi-gloss appearance
  • Water-based
  • Non flammable

VpCI-387 must be thoroughly mixed prior to use. Apply by brush, spray, or roller. Normal WFT of 13-15 mils (325-375 microns) yields 6-8 mils (150-200 microns) DFT.

Substrate Preparation:
NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers): 2 or 3
SSPC (Steel Structure Painting Council): 6 or 10
ARS (American Rust Standard Guide): Low A-3 or better

Product cleanup: Use soap and water to cleanup tools and overspray.

*The physical properties vary for the custom color versions of VpCI-387.

** All dry times are at 70°F (21°C) at 50-55% Relative Humidity

Note: Coating dry time is affected by temperature, air-flow, and humidity.

Hose should be 3/8" (0.95 cm) I.D. minimum, but a ¼" (0.64 cm) I.D. whip end section may be used for ease of application. A maximum length of 100 feet (30.5 m) is suggested. Best results will be obtained using a 0.013"-0.017" (0.3-0.4 cm) tip at 1200-1700 psi (83-117 bar).

Avoid using VpCI-387 in situations where the coating is immersed in water or other liquids as this could lead to softening of the film.
