ToolGuard VCI - 10
ToolGuard VCI is a powerful vapour phase inhibitor for protecting tools and tooling stored in drawers and toolboxes and manufacturers packaging. The VCI chemical is absorbed into a felt pad inside a 35mmm dia. lidded plastic pot. On removal of the lid, the VCI chemical permeates the enclosed volume forming a monomolecular protective layer on every surface; be it steel, iron, wood, plastic etc. Because it is a vapour, it will find its way into every nook and cranny. ToolGuard VCI works at up to 100% RH and is effective for 12 months in a volume of 2 cubic feet. They are ideal for protecting precision measuring equipment, collets, hand tools and machine accessories. Because it does not lower the level of humidity, like a desiccant, it will not distort any delicate pieces of a model made from wood - which ‘moves’ with changes in humidity. ToolGuard VCI has found many applications other than those just listed. Museums use them to protect artefacts in display cabinets, the shooting fraternity have used them with great success in gun cabinets, and woodworkers use them for protecting valuable hand tools. This offer is for a box of ten ToolGuard VCI.

Seems to work. It's hard to review this fairly, but it seems to work. The dilemma being that since using these, I haven't had any (significant) rust on the tools in my tool chest, but I can't know for certain this is what has prevented the rust (I also use corrosion inhibitor directly on the tools). Give it a try! (12/02/2015) Mike H – Essex
I use your ToolGuard VCI capsules in my various tool boxes/cabinets and they have proved to be excellent in preventing corrosion in a less than ideal
environment. The last lot I ordered came with a free sample of the Van Guard Wipes which have also proved to be excellent and is my reason for ordering more. You can be assured of my future custom for all my anti-corrosion needs. Nov 2016 J.H. - Bedfordshire
