VpCI-649 BD is a uniqe, concentrated liquid formulation that protects ferrous and non-ferrous metals from corrosive solutions. In addition, this product is designed to provide long-term protection in fresh water, steam and glycol closed loop systems. VpCI-649 BD also includes preservations against biogrowth.

VpCI-649 BD is effective as a replacement for nitrite/chromate-based formulations.

VpCI-649 BD combines contact and volatile corrosion inhibitors along with anti-scalants in a non-toxic formulation that does not contain nitrites, phosphates, chromates or heavy metals. Being environmentally safe, this product helps solve the problem of disposal, particularly for large quantities of water.
