Product Description

VCI-F Oil is a vapor phase corrosion inhibitor and flushing fluid, which should be used to protect internal tanks from corrosion, flush tanks to disperse debris and offer protection for the external surfaces of parts. It contains less than 15 ppm sulfur and is compatible with fuel, lubricating and hydraulic oils. VCI-F Oil contains a special low pour point synthetic ester contact inhibitor blend, which will not varnish, harden or react with cleaner residues left in systems. The volatile corrosion inhibitor blend will protect the headspace in "closed systems" such as engines, transmissions, hydraulic tanks and cylinders, gear housings, fuel tanks and steel drums. The duration of the vapor phase protection provided depends on how well the tank is sealed. Protection for several years can be achieved if the tank is hermetically sealed or bagged with LDPE (>0.125mm thick) plastic and sealed. For incompletely sealed systems periodic endoscope inspection and possible re-application may be required.

Featured Benefits
  • Used to protect sheet metal stampings, spare parts, etc. if sealed in >0.125mm LDPE bags.
  • Is distinguishable from conventional preservative oils as it gives both vapor phase and contact corrosion protection.
  • Particularly effective in fuel tanks, hydraulic tanks, and ferrous components while in transit or temporary storage.
  • Designed to lift, displace and encapsulate adsorbed water and washer residue from the surface to protect the tank from corrosion and staining.
