    Vapour phase corrosion emitters explained

    The Vapour phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI) emits vapours that form a monomolecular protective coating on internal metal surfaces. This coating protects critical, complex and expensive electronic equipment from corrosion initiation during operation, shipping or storage. Three products from Cortec provide long-term protection against corrosion in the presence of adverse conditions including salt, moisture, airborne contaminants, hydrogen sulphide, sulphur dioxide, ammonia, and others. VpCI-101 will protect cabinets or tool boxes of up to 1 cubic foot (28 litres) VpCI-105 will protect cabinets or tool boxes of up to 5 cubic feet (142 litres) VpCI-111 will protect cabinets or tool boxes up…
