How it works

The inhibition process

VCI2000 protective vapours expand inside the packaging until they have filled it completely. The inhibition process begins when the vapours come into contact with the metal surface: by condensing, they produce a thin, invisible anticorrosive barrier.

An invisible barrier

The result of this process is the absorption of protective ions on the metal surfaces and the simultaneous development of a molecular film which prompts the contact break between the metal and the electrolyte. The presence of this monomolecular, invisible film wards off corrosion and, at the same time, maintains the metal’s core physical and mechanical characteristics intact.
