Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor
Presence of oxygen & moisture in the atmosphere accelerates corrosion of ferrous & non-ferrous metals.
This reaction requires acidic pH. It is an electrochemical phenomenon occurring on untreated metal
surfaces in contact with electrolytes like water. Treating the metal surfaces to break the reaction of
surface acids is the key to protect them from Surface Corrosion.
® TapStar VCI is a unique, eco-friendly, non-hazardous, Corrosion Inhibitor masterbatch as an additive to
prevent surface corrosion of metal components packed in films. The active ingredient in these
masterbatches vaporises at ambient temperature. VCI 2075 active after vaporising, gets adsorbed on the
surface exposing the hydrocarbon layer to the atmosphere hence preventing corrosion of the metal
component. The active in VCI 8075 on the other hand, neutralises the acids present on the surface of the
metal component responsible for corrosion.
- Effectively prevents surface corrosion of packed ferrous components
- Effective at low concentrations
- Compatible with most polymers
- Free of Nitrites
- RoHS Compliant
