Not all VCI’s are created equal and often, one VCI formulation that works under one set of conditions will not work under another. One has to take into account all aspects of the process, metals composition, packaging, storage and shipping conditions in order to select the right packaging media and VCI formulation. A large number of combinations are available from Daubert Cromwell that will be effective in any application.
