Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor
Definition - What does Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor mean?
A vapor corrosion inhibitor (VCI) is a corrosion prevention substance that is applied to metallic surfaces, often in hard-to-reach locations (confined spaces) or within a container. These confined spaces retain the applied VCI compounds for long-term corrosion prevention.
Vapor corrosion inhibitors are also known as volatile corrosion inhibitors.
Corrosionpedia explains Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor
Vapor corrosion inhibitors lengthen the life span of metal surfaces by protecting them from dust and corrosion. They are typically environmentally friendly and pose little to no danger to the atmosphere. Vapor corrosion inhibitors are usually applied as a spray.
