VpCI-101 devices (3" x 1.25" x .25") are designed to provide corrosion protection for metal components and parts enclosed in non-ventilated control boxes, cabinets or tool boxes. A VpCI-101 device protects up to 1 cubic foot (28 liters) in volume. VpCI-101 is a small patented foam device from which Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors are slowly released. The VpCIs emit vapors that form a molecular layer on metal surfaces to protect critical, complex and expensive electronic equipment and other metal components during operations, shipping or storage. VpCI-101 provides long-term protection against corrosion even in the presence of adverse conditions including salt, moisture, airborne contaminants, H2S, SO2, NH3 and others. 50 emitters per carton.

  • Method of Application:
    VpCI-101 devices are extremely simple and convenient to install. The devices should be installed at the earliest possible time, preferably during manufacture or assembly. Simply select a space within any enclosure where corrosion protection would be useful. Verify the surface to which the device will be affixed is clean and free of debris. Peel off the protective peel strip from the bottom of the device and attach it to the clean surface. VpCI-101 devices can be installed in any position. For volumes greater than 1 cubic foot (28 liters), use more than one device. If the enclosure is not totally airtight, or if the access doors are opened frequently, replace the VpCI-101 device more often than every 2 years. After periods of heavy maintenance replace the device. For additional protection spray the enclosure very lightly with Cortec ElectriCorr VpCI-238 or VpCI-239.
