Corrosion protection for enclosure-housed electronics

16 July 2014 Enclosures, Racks, Cabinets & Panel Products

Cortec’s VpCI-105 emitters are designed to provide corrosion protection for metal components and parts enclosed in non-ventilated control boxes, cabinets or tool boxes up to 142 litres in volume.

The economical, non-toxic and safe to handle pellets emit vapour phase corrosion inhibitors (VpCI) which form a monomolecular protective coating on all metal surfaces.

Corrosion of complex electronic and electrical equipment is a serious problem which triggers expensive failures during manufacturing, shipping, storage or field operation. It can be caused by numerous factors such as salt, humidity, moisture, contaminants, etc. By using Ecosonic VpCI 105 remitters, corrosion can be stopped at any step from manufacturing to final installation.

VpCI-105 is a plastic emitter with a breathable Tyvek membrane through which the corrosion inhibitor is released. It provides long-term protection against corrosion even in the presence of adverse conditions including salt, moisture, airborne contaminants, H2S, SO2, NH3 and others. VpCI-105 emitters are effective in polluted and humid environments and provide continuous protection for up to 24 months.

These emitters do not interfere with electrical, optical or mechanical surface properties, and are simple, quick and convenient to install and protect during operation and shutdown. Products are free of nitrites, halogens and phosphates and have very low VOC values. No spraying, wiping or dipping is required.

Typical application include packaging and storage of electrical, electronic and marine navigation equipment; aerospace electrical controls and electric motors, switching equipment; medical and telecommunications equipment, terminal, fuse and power boxes; scientific and measuring instruments, remote electronics devices; handheld battery-operated devices, tool boxes, gun safes, and any other enclosure for metal storage.
