Abstract : Four volatile corrosion inhibitor (VCI) materials were evaluated up to eight years in outdoor, shed, and indoor storage to determine the degree of protection provided to packaged ferrous and nonferrous metal panels with various finishes, and to determine the necessity of providing a well sealed package to reduce the loss of VCI vapors. The work indicated that there are VCI materials available that will provide satisfactory protection to ferrous metal finishes in extended storage. The VCI materials provided no significant protection to nonferrous finishes, such as cadmium and zinc plate.
