VCI Liquid GVL800 TDS

VCI Liquid GVL800 TDS

GreenVCI® GVL800 is a highly concentrated, water-soluble, multi-purpose volatile corrosion inhibitor specifically designed to safeguard both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. When air-sealed, it ensures a comprehensive 24-month protection against wet corrosion.

GVL800 finds extensive utility across diverse VCI applications and can be easily diluted with compatible base chemicals to enhance its effectiveness in combating wet corrosion. It forms a hydrophilic layer on metal surfaces, effectively preventing contact with moisture and oxygen in the air.

Application Field

GVL800 is a multi-purpose VCI, which can be used in a variety of applications such as mothballing, alternative for oil-based corrosion preventatives, hydrostatic and leaking test additives, heavy industrial equipment, automotive parts, machines, storage tanks, and some tubular equipment like pipes and vessels.

Method of Application

Before applying GVL800 on the surface, it is necessary to first remove oil, grease and other minor rust. Application can be done in different ways such as dipping, pouring, brushing, spraying through a spray gun or industrial grade machines, and other similar equipment. If necessary, the solution can also be rinsed with water.

Packaging and Storage

GVL500 is offered in various packaging options, including 20L pails, 200L drums, and 1,000L IBC tanks, ensuring adaptability to your specific requirements. 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.
