A soluble corrosion inhibitor is a chemical substance capable of dissolving in water, which is applied to a metallic surface to prevent or reduce the rate of corrosion on the surface.

Corrosionpedia explains Soluble Corrosion Inhibitor (SCI)

Soluble corrosion inhibitors prevent corrosion because they create a passivation layer when interacting with metallic surfaces. This layer acts as a protective film that coats the surface, eliminating corrosion-causing conditions in the immediate area.
