ZERUST®/EXCOR® ActivPowder™-10F is a powerful Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) powder designed to protect ferrous metal surfaces in large voids from corrosion. This self-fogging powder combines VCI protection with a Flash Corrosion Inhibitor (FCI™) to protect against flash rust and provide long-term corrosion protection.



  • Fast acting and effective on hard-to-reach surfaces
  • VCI powder protects against flash corrosion
  • Does not cause hydrogen embrittlement
  • Protects against acid gases, salt air, and other challenging contaminants
  • Powerful and long-lasting protection
Product Description

Product Description

The exceptionally fast diffusion rate of Activ™ inhibitors enables rapid delivery of protection, even in hard-to-reach spaces of structural voids, tubing, and cavities. ActivPowder™-10F VCI powder also provides effective surface passivation to protect against corrosion caused by chlorides and acidic surface contaminants. In addition, the VCI powder is fully water soluble and is effective in wet lay-up applications.

Testing by NTIC (Northern Technologies International Corporation) shows it conforms to MIL-PRF-22110 and exceeds the physical characteristics of commercial product Material Form 3 in Commercial Item Description (CID) A-A-59441/5. ActivPowder™-10F VCI powder is non-flammable and complies with Global Automotive Declarable Substance, TSCA, ECHA SVHC, RoHS, and REACH requirements.
