Keep a Lid on Rust and Corrosion with VCI Emitters
An emitter is something that gives off, or sends out, a substance.
Vapor corrosion inhibitors (VCI) are a type of compound used to protect ferrous and non-ferrous metals from rust and corrosion.
When you combine the two, the result is (you guessed it) a VCI Emitter — a device designed to protect enclosed metal and metal parts from the evils of rust. VCI emitters use a range of carriers, such as polyether foam or chipboard, to host the VCI for use in various rust-prevention applications.
For best results, VCI emitters must be located in an enclosed space. When metal or metal parts and the VCI emitter are contained, the VCIs kick into action to create a blanket of protection on the surface of the metal that repels rust. VCI emitters are ideal for use in packaging, cabinets, closed bins, boxes, storage and/or shipping containers.
