VpCI-150 and VpCI-170 patented foam tapes protect metal in enclosed spaces from corrosion. Effective in control boxes or cabinets to protect sensitive electronic components; VpCI-150 and 170 offer low maintenance protection during operation, shipping, or storage. Not only do these unique tapes provide Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI) protection, but they also provide antistatic protection under military specification MIL-B-81705C.
Cortec®VpCI products prevent corrosion through their unique VpCI action. VpCIs, adsorb on to metal surfaces creating a molecular layer of protection. VpCI-150 and 170 are effective against a variety of corrosive agents, including salt, airborne contaminants, H2S, SO2, NH3, and others.
VpCI-150 protects up to 0.4 ft3(11.3 liter) per linear inch (2.5 cm). VpCI-170 protects up to 1 ft3(28.3 liter) by volume per linear inch (2.5 cm).
VpCI-150 and VpCI-170 are extremely simple and convenient to install. Simply select a space within any enclosed device where corrosion protection would be useful. Verify the surface the tape will be affixed is clean and free of debris. Peel off the protective peel strip from the bottom of the tape and attach it to the clean surface.
VpCI-150 and VpCI-170 tapes can be installed in any position. If the enclosure is not totally airtight, or if the access doors are opened frequently, replace theVpCI-150 and VpCI-170 tape more often than every 2 years. After periods of heavy maintenance replace the tape. Additionally, spray the enclosure very lightly with ElectriCorr®VpCI-238 or VpCI-239.
