ZERUST® VCI Emitters are self-contained, portable products that diffuse ZERUST® Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors (VCIs) chemicals to protect metals within enclosures.
In addition to traditional VCI film and other packaging products, ZERUST® offers the ICT® 800 Emitter Series. VCI Emitters (also known as VCI diffusers) provide targeted corrosion protection in hard-to-reach enclosed spaces. They can be used as added protection to ZERUST® VCI packaging products. VCI Emitters emit powerful ZERUST® corrosion inhibiting molecules into an enclosure that settles on metal surfaces and protects them from corrosion. They are safe for electronics, odorless*, non-toxic*, residue-free, and designed to work in restricted spaces.
ZERUST® VCI Emitters and Diffusers are easy-to-use corrosion-inhibiting products that contain ZERUST® VCI technology. ZERUST® VCI Emitters and Diffusers emit potent corrosion-inhibiting molecules that settle on metal surfaces and protect them from corrosion in restricted spaces. Use VCI Emitters and Diffusers to provide corrosion protection in almost any enclosure or as a supplement to other ZERUST® packaging products for added protection.
ZERUST® Vapor Capsules are portable VCI emitter diffusers that are used to protect metals in hard-to-reach areas of control panels, electrical cabinets, and other enclosed spaces.
ZERUST® ActivDri™ Desiccant VCI Capsules utilize Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors and silica-gel desiccant to combat humidity to protect ferrous and aluminum metals in enclosed spaces.
ZERUST® ActivDri™ packets are dual action, moisture control vapor corrosion inhibitor (VCI) sachet products that protect against environmental contaminants and humidity that aggressively corrodes metal parts, components, electronics, and electrical components.
ZERUST® ActivPak® VCI Sachets are easy-to-use diffusers that provide targeted corrosion protection. They work in minutes to prevent flash corrosion on bare metal surfaces in an enclosed space.
ZERUST® ActivPak®(LS) VCI packets are easy-to-use diffusers that provide targeted corrosion protection. They work in minutes to prevent flash corrosion on bare metal surfaces in an enclosed space.
ZERUST® Z-PAK® is an economical, effective, and easy-to-use vapor corrosion inhibitor (VCI) diffuser packet that can be used alone or, more typically, with other ZERUST® packaging products to provide robust temporary corrosion protection for ferrous metals during shipment, storage, or work-in-progress.
ZERUST® ZAK-M22 Vapor Capsules are portable VCI capsules used to protect electronics and electrical components and inside enclosures such as musical instrument cases and gun cases. Each VCI capsule has a unique serial number and QR code printed on the label. This feature used, along with the ZERUST® ZAP App, allows the user to be notified of the initial installation location and replacement schedule.
ZERUST® Tube Strip is a flexible VCI emitter tubing product that diffuses Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors (VCIs) to prevent corrosion within tubes, pipes, and gun barrels.
ZERUST®/EXCOR® Tube Strip Pro is a flexible and durable VCI tube that diffuses ZERUST® Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors (VCI) chemistry to prevent corrosion within tubes and pipes.
ZERUST® Open Cell VCI Foam Emitter Pads are a pre-cut, flexible, and convenient way to provide added corrosion protection in packaging.
ZERUST® ICT® Plastabs® are thin, light, rigid polyethylene VCI emitter plastic tabs designed to protect critical surfaces within narrow or hard-to-reach areas of parts or equipment.
ZERUST® Cor Tab® VCI Tablets contain patented ZERUST® vapor corrosion-inhibiting technology to provide targeted corrosion protection to small or hard-to-reach interior areas of your shipment.
ZERUST® ActivPowder™ Series includes Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) powders designed to protect metal surfaces in large voids from corrosion. These products offer VCI protection, combined with a new self-fogging Flash Corrosion Inhibitor (FCI™) technology that protects metals in enclosed spaces, even in hard-to-reach spaces of structural voids, tubing, and cavities. This combination diffuses rapidly to protect against flash rust and provides long-term corrosion protection with its progressive vapor-transported corrosion inhibitor action.
ZERUST® ActivPowder™-10F VCI powder offers fast-acting long-term VCI protection, combined with a new self-fogging Flash Corrosion Inhibitor (FCI™) technology that is specialized in protecting metals in enclosed spaces.
A VCI protective package design benefits from the addition of VCI emitters in these situations:
One way to determine if additional VCI protection is needed is by asking the question, “Does the VCI packaging or emitter have line-of-site?” Meaning, can the metal surface be “seen” by the VCI? If not, additional VCI could be needed to effectively reach the surface. Although VCI is a vapor and will travel and fill the void spaces in an enclosure, it can be difficult for the chemistry to travel a long distance and effectively protect divided areas.
