VCI Transit Coatings


VCI Transit Coatings are volatile corrosion inhibitor (VCI) liquids, incorporated with a unique blend of corrosion inhibitors to protect metal and most painted surfaces from rusting and corrosion during transit. When applied, the VCI transit coatings act as a protective barrier against seawater, acid rain, insects, bird droppings, smoke, pollution, dirt and debris.

Now more than ever, manufacturers of large equipment need ways to protect their products from factory to delivery. The shift away from heavy, environmentally damaging coatings means metal surfaces are increasingly vulnerable to corrosion. Improperly protected hose fittings and connectors, for example, are now exposed to corrosion-causing conditions, especially during export.

Nox-Rust 1150

Nox-Rust 1150 is a solvent-free, self-healing, non-drying and removable rust inhibitor coating, designed to protect unpainted machinery in shipping crates without smearing or waiting for it to cure. The Nox-Rust 1150 ensures exposed metals are free and protected from corrosion, allowing it to be packaged immediately, improving the speed of handling and reduces the cost of labour.

The solvent-free, blue thixotropic coating sets up quickly, stays soft and grease-like and is self-healing. Corrosion protection can last up to 5 years indoors and 2 years outdoors. To remove the coating, use pressure wash or wipe with a cloth in some applications.

It is ideally used for ferrous metal equipment and fabricated metals packed in wood crates, on pallets, in corrugated and other acidic packagings that can cause corrosion.

  • Protection Time: Up to 5 years indoors; 2 years outdoors, covered
  • Appearance: Blue, grease-like, thixotropic liquid
  • Metal Protection: Ferrous metal equipment and fabricated parts
  • Approvals: RoHS; CAT 1E4973
Nox-Rust 3100

Nox-Rust 3100 is designed to protect metals stored outside that requires 5+ years of protection. In salt fog testing, the most rigorous ASTM standard for measuring the effectiveness of corrosion protection, the Nox-Rust 3100 outlasted the competition. The results have shown that Nox-Rust 3100 is the best choice for protecting equipment and machinery for shipments.

Nox-Rust 3100 can be handled after 3-6 hours and sets up in 12-24 hours. When required, it can be removed by solvent-based thinners, vapour degreasing or hot alkaline wash.

  • Protection Time: 5+ years indoor or outdoor covered; 2 years outdoor exposed
  • Appearance: Dry film is firm, amber/translucent
  • Metal Protection: Ferrous & non-ferrous metals
  • Approvals: OEM product; Manufactured to meet MIL-C-16173 Class 1 Grade 4
Nox-Rust 3100G

Most outdoor equipment is protected by oiling and painting. However, hard to reach areas are often left exposed, leaving these areas vulnerable to corrosion. VCI Spray releases VCI molecules which stick to the surface of the equipment, protecting the equipment from corrosion (rusting).

The spray is capable of reaching the most secluded areas to ensure that every part of the equipment is treated. Together with oiling and painting, VCI serves as an additional layer of protection. The VCI is ideal for protecting outdoor equipment due to its unique blend of VCIs and UV stabilisers which is catered for outdoor use. The VCI spray can also be used for indoor equipment.

Apply the spray before placing the equipment outdoors to ensure it stays ruse free! VCI Spray is ideal for metals in industrial, marine, offshore and automobile rust proofing applications. Nox-Rust 3100G includes the same corrosion protective properties as Nox-Rust 3100. However, it is thicker in consistency which allows it to stay on vertical surfaces better.
