What Are Flash Rust Inhibitors And Why Do I Need Them For Wet Blasting?
Flash Rust is the corrosion that occurs during the drying process when a clean metal part is exposed to air unprotected. When performing a dustless blasting or wet blasting procedure, metal surfaces are subject to rusting very rapidly. Rust Inhibitors can prevent this problem by either mixing them with the blasting media or by forming a rinse solution after the blasting process is finished. This additives are only ment to protect from rust in a short period of time. When longer protection is required, other compatible Rust Preventives can further protect the blasted metal surfaces.
Why is VpCI®-611 your best choice when looking for a dustless blasting corrosion inhibitor?
VpCI®-611 is non-toxic, environmentally friendly, and
contains no nitrite or phosphate inhibitors. VpCI-611
is safe, economical to use, and easy to dispose of.
Welding after application will not cause toxic fumes
during welding. It is also more cost effective as it only requires a 1:500 dosage which is 5 times less than the recommended amount for other products in the market.
VpCI®-611 Wet Blasting Anti-rust Additive Technical Data
Hydroblasting Flash Rust Prevention Additive | Rust Blasting Additive | Dilute 1:500 In Water | Made In USA | Mutimetal | Bulk | Concentrate
VpCI®-611 is a water-based rust preventive
concentrate for water blasting, wet abrasive blasting,
hydrotesting, fire sprinkler water systems, or
preservation. It contains contact and vapor phase
corrosion inhibitors capable of protecting uncoated
VpCI® treatment can be removed from the metal
surface with water or any conventional washing
. In most cases, VpCI® -611 need not be
removed prior to painting or coating.
Mix VpCI®-611 lightly, by hand or motorized blade, to a
uniform consistency before use.
For wet abrasive blasting and water blasting, add
VpCI®-611 concentrate directly to the blasting media.
After blasting allow the freshly blasted surface to dry.
For hydrotesting, add VpCI®-611 concentrate directly
to the hydrotest water. Either leave the solution in or
drain it out.
For preservation of sandblasted surfaces, add VpCI®-611 to water and spray the freshly cleaned surfaces
with the solution.
