A new solution to corrosion of complex internal voids

03 August 2020

Despite so many advances in technology today, industries still face the age-old problem of corrosion. Much time and money are poured into preventing rust or trying to remedy its consequences. A major question that remains is how to protect complex internal cavities and voids that are difficult to access and create a breeding ground for undetected corrosion. Often, these voids involve structural steel or high value equipment modules. Once corrosion takes place within, it can be difficult to undo the damage. 

CorroLogic® Fogging Fluid VpCI®-339 is a ready-to-use 100% Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI®) product for preservation of void spaces comprised of multi-metals including mild carbon steel, stainless steel, cast iron, aluminum, copper, and galvanized steel. Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors in CorroLogic® Fogging Fluid VpCI®-339 migrate throughout the voids to protect metal surfaces, even in hard-to-reach areas. The product is water and hydrocarbon soluble and leaves no solid residues. It is nonflammable and free of chrome, phosphorus, halogen, and silicon elements. It is user-friendly and contains no EPA or OSHA hazard. It is also free of HAP (hazardous air pollutants). 

CorroLogic® Fogging Fluid VpCI®-339 can be applied by fogging or misting at a very low concentration into voids such as pipes, tanks, containers, boxes, crates, and shrouded packages. The fogging fluid is fast-acting, forming a thin, self-healing protective film on metals inside the enclosed space. It is a solution for: 

 - Complex internal cavities
 - Double wall spaces
 - Pipes, heat exchangers, and modules
 - Transportation and deep storage of key assets
