Cortec VPCI 111 emitter capsules are unique, patented devices designed to provide corrosion protection for metal parts & components that are enclosed in non-ventilated electrical boxes, control cabinets and tool boxes up to 11 cubic feet/312 litre’s.
These VCI emitters feature Cortec’s proprietary VPCI® (vapour phase corrosion inhibitor) technology. This sophisticated VPCI formula bonds to the internal metal surfaces around it forming a molecular layer to protect critical, complicated or expensive equipment from corrosion damage.

How to Install
- VPCI 111 is extremely simple to operate and install. You should try to install the VPCI emitters as soon as possible, ideally at the point of manufacture or assembly. This is to avoid accelerated use of the rust inhibitor formula, once removed from it’s packaging/housing the VPCI formula will have migrated completely from the capsule to the metal surfaces nearby needing protection within a matter of hours.
- Simply select an area within an enclosed space/environment where corrosion protection or rust prevention would be needed.
- Check to ensure the area where the device is to be places is clean and debris free.
- Peel off protective carrier strip located at the bottom of the device. Underneath you will see a self-adhesive label to install/attach the emitter as well a space to note the installation & replacement dates.
- Attach to the clean surface.
- VPCI 111 emitters can be installed in any position.
- For volumes of 11ft³ (312ltr’s) or greater use more than one VPCI 111 capsule.
- If the environment is not air-tight or is exposed to continuous air flow (doors opening) ensure you replace the capsule more frequently than once every 2 years.
- Following heavy maintenance and/or repair replace the emitter. For optimal rust protection spray on a light mist or coating of ElectriCorr® VPCI 238.
