Product Description

Product Description

ZERUST® ICT® Open Cell VCI Foam Emitter Pads provide superior corrosion protection to ferrous and non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, brass, and copper. These open cell foam pads diffuse proprietary ZERUST® Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor Technology (VCI) to prevent corrosion and are nitrite and chromate free. ZERUST® VCI foam pads protect metals in an enclosure for up to 1 year. Test before use in direct contact with metals and in packages containing non-ferrous metals. The product may leave residue after direct contact with metal.

Use ZERUST® Open Cell VCI Foam Emitter Pads with ZERUST® VCI packaging for longer-term corrosion protection. Add them into packaging as an effective way to improve protection in demanding environments and on lightly contaminated parts. The foam may darken when used with VCI film, but color change does not affect product performance. Open cell foam contains a high saturation of vapor corrosion inhibitors, which allows it to protect more volume and surface area of densely packed and intricate parts.



ZERUST®/EXCOR® ICT®870-OC Foam pads are in stock for immediate delivery and sold in cases.
