Request Information

ZERUST® ActivDri™ Desiccant VCI Capsule protects ferrous and aluminum metals in enclosed spaces. It utilizes Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor Technology (VCI) to prevent corrosion and silica-gel desiccant to combat humidity that affects metals and electronics. In addition, it is designed to protect large voids inside critical items during shipping and storage.

The ActivDri™ Capsule features a durable coated steel cable to aid in inserting and retrieving the unit from the center of a void space. The cable is affixed to the capsule at multiple points to provide a secure hold. Simply remove the capsule when the protected item is ready for service or final assembly.

Use ActivDri™ Desiccant VCI Capsules to protect electronics, equipment, and assets in corrosive environments such as salty air, sewage treatment plants, or power plants. ActivDri™ corrosion inhibitors form an invisible shield that provides powerful corrosion protection. The capsule reduces flash-rust and corrosion incidents, even in contaminated and challenging environments.

Do not place the capsule in direct contact with metals and test before use with copper and brass.
