ToolGuard VCI is a vapor phase inhibitor for protecting tools and tooling stored in drawers, toolboxes, showcases and manufacturers’ packaging. The VCI chemical is absorbed into a felt pad inside a 35mm-diameter lidded plastic capsule. When the lid is removed, the VCI chemical permeates the air in the enclosed area, forming a thin protective layer on every surface, be it steel, iron, wood, plastic or other material. Because it is a vapor, it will find its way into every nook and cranny. Tool Guard VCI works at up to 100% relative humidity and is effective for 12 months in a volume of two cubic feet. Unlike silica gel, it does not lower the level of humidity, so it will not distort wood that “moves” with changes in humidity. ToolGuard VCI is ideal for protecting precision measuring equipment, collets, and machine accessories and for use in gun cabinets and to protect valuable woodworking hand tools. Museums also use it to protect artifacts in display cabinets.
