VCI (Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor) pipe caps and VPCI (Vapor Phase Corrosion Inhibitor) bags are extremely beneficial in preventing corrosion and maintaining the integrity of the pipes, especially in storage and transport.
VCI pipe caps are infused with corrosion inhibiting compounds that release vapors and form a protective layer on the surface of the pipe. This protective layer effectively prevents rust and other forms of corrosion that could weaken the pipe over time, thus ensuring the longevity and performance of the pipe.
VPCI bags work in a very similar manner. They release corrosion inhibiting vapors that form a thin, protective layer on all the metal surfaces within the bag, providing excellent protection particularly during long term storage or shipping.
Together, they ensure that the pipes stay clean and intact, ready for use. Both are a cost-effective way to safeguard your investment in pipes, particularly for high-value materials like stainless steel or other alloy pipes.
