The first use of VCIs for corrosion protection was during the Second World War. Although several decades went by from this original conception, most of the common VCIs available today suffer from several problems.
- Offer ineffective corrosion protection.
- Protect one metal, but corrode others in a complex machinery with several metals (see Cortec test results below)
- Contain harmful nitrites or secondary-amines which are carcinogenic.
Drawing an analogy to the use of pharmaceutical drugs, either the is ineffective or creates other additional problem
as it was not the correct drug for the problem.
Backed by an extensive research and industrial experience of a decade, Metaplastics proudly offers:
- Quality of protection at the highest international standards (better quality than Cortec films).
- Simultaneous multimetal protection for most commonly used engineering metals.
- Nitrite-free VCI formulations.
- TRGS 615 safety standards compliant VCIs without secondary amines.
