VCI Liquid GVL500 TDS

VCI Liquid GVL500 TDS

GreenVCI® GVL500 is a versatile water-soluble volatile corrosion inhibitor, offering robust corrosion protection for both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Upon air-sealing, it creates a water-soluble tacky film on metal surfaces. This film acts as a barrier, limiting the contact between the metal and moisture or oxygen present in the air.

Method of Application

Start the application by removing any oil, grease, and minor rust from the surface. GVL500 can be applied using various methods, such as dipping, pouring, brushing, conventional spray guns, automated industrial spray machines, or other suitable equipment. If necessary, GVL500 can be rinsed with water for effortless removal.

The recommended dosage of GVL500 is 150-250mL per 1 square meter of surface area, with adjustments made based on the metal surface area and capacity. Thanks to its user-friendly application and durable corrosion protection, GVL500 proves ideal for a diverse array of applications.

Application Field

GVL500 is a multi-purpose VCI that is useful in various applications such as mothballing, alternative for oil-based corrosion preventatives, hydrostatic and leaking test additives, heavy industrial equipment, auto-parts, storage tanks, machines and some tubular structures like vessels and pipes.

With proper handling, the product boasts an estimated shelf life of two years when delivered in sealed packaging and shielded from direct sunlight and moisture. Maintaining storage conditions at room temperature is crucial to preserve the effectiveness of the VCI liquid packaging over time.


To guarantee the efficacy of VCI liquid packaging, adherence to specific guidelines is paramount. Firstly, it’s advisable to store the packaged products away from direct sunlight, high temperatures, heat, and moisture. Additionally, the application of VCI liquid packaging should occur in environments with stable temperature conditions.

Controlling humidity levels is also crucial to safeguard the packaged products from corrosion. Before usage, conducting testing is recommended to confirm that the VCI liquid is suitable for your specific requirements and conditions. By diligently following these steps, you can optimize the protection provided by VCI liquid for your metal products.
