VCI Desiccant GVD100 TDS

GreenVCI® VCI DESICCANT (GVD100)

GreenVCI® GVD100 (or production code name VDPK) represents a breakthrough in corrosion protection, leveraging on the power of attapulgite-based technology to safeguard metal assets effectively. Operating as a VCI desiccant, it exhibits remarkable moisture absorption capabilities, boasting a 35% absorption rate. Simultaneously, it releases Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors (VCI) into the confined package environment, fortifying corrosion resistance.

This innovative desiccant is engineered to protect both ferrous and non-ferrous metals from corrosion, offering a sustainable alternative to traditional methods reliant on oils and moisture-absorbing additives. By leveraging Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors, it forms a thin yet potent protective molecular layer over metal surfaces, thwarting the onset of oxidation for extended periods.

Within enclosed spaces, the VCI within the vapor zone remains active, ensuring continuous protection for up to 12 months. This prolonged duration of defense renders GreenVCI® GVD100 a reliable solution for preserving metal integrity in various applications and environments.

Application Field

GVD100 has a straightforward application with minimal to no surface preparation necessary. Its VCI action extends protection to deep cavities or voids, while the monomolecular layer it forms does not impede electrical operation or equipment functionality. Serving as a valuable complement to comprehensive VCI protective packaging solutions, GVD100 finds common application across a spectrum of metal products. These include automotive parts, electronic components, machinery, and heavy equipment, among others.

Moisture Absorption

GVD100 has outstanding hygroscopic properties having a moisture absorption rate of 

8.7% at 20% relative humidity (rH) good for 48 hours

14.9% at 50% rH good for 48 hours

35.6% at 90% rH good for 48 hours

Dosage

When air-sealed, GVD100 protects from corrosion for up to 12 months. For reference, 200g to 500g of VCI desiccant covers 1 cubic meter of protection.

Precautions

To maximize the efficacy of VCI desiccant packaging, it’s vital to adhere to specific guidelines. Firstly, avoid exposing the packaged items to direct sunlight and extreme temperatures, including heat and moisture. Additionally, apply the VCI desiccant packaging in stable temperature environments. Controlling humidity levels is crucial to shield the packaged products from corrosion. Before use, conducting tests is advised to confirm the suitability of the VCI desiccant packaging for your specific needs and conditions. By following these steps diligently, you can optimize the protection afforded by VCI desiccant packaging for your metal products.
