Through research, testing, and direct knowledge of end user needs, Cortec® continues an ongoing cycle of product improvement. Among Cortec’s wide variety of corrosion inhibiting solutions is Desicorr® VpCI® desiccant technology, whose synergistic action between desiccant and Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors provides unparalleled corrosion protection.

Pouches provide multimetal protection for aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel, copper, brass, galvanized steel, silicon steel and solder.

Desicorr VpCI pouches are specially designed two-sided pouches containing a unique combination of desiccant and Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors (VpCI). These pouches are ideal for protecting packaged ferrous and non-ferrous metals from corrosion. Unlike conventional desiccants, the dual function of the Desicorr VpCI pouches reduces moisture in the air (desiccant action) and provides multi-metal protection (VpCI action) within a package. In essence, the desiccant action allows the VpCI to have free access to the surface of the metal, without competition from moisture on the metal surface. VpCI action protects recessed and inaccessible surfaces and continues to provide corrosion protection even when the desiccant is fully spent. VpCI is self-replenishing to provide ongoing protection after a package is opened and resealed; the protective VpCI layer does not need removal. Pouches are extremely easy to use and can be easily inserted manually or automatically into packages.

Desicorr VpCI is designed to protect products, components, or assemblies when packaged in corrugated boxes, plastic wrap or bags, and wood or metal containers. Successful usages include completed assemblies, parts, components, motors, mechanical controls, precision machined or stamped parts, marine and commercial electronic equipment, electrical equipment, and tools.

Dessicorr VpCI Pouches are commercially equivalent to MIL-D-3464E, Type I & Type II and provide multi-metal protection. They are available in both windowed and non-windowed versions (NW). The windowed version contains some indicator spheres that will change color from yellow to green when the desiccant is fully spent. No degreasing or cleaning of the protected part is required.
