Editorial Change:
Published in 2008! Volatile corrosion inhibitor (VCI) materials are widely used to provide temporary corrosion protection for the surfaces of ferrous and nonferrous metal parts. This standard test method evaluates the vapor-inhibiting ability (VIA) of various forms of VCI materials for temporary corrosion protection of ferrous metal surfaces, called the “VIA-Ferrous” test. It can be performed reproducibly with relatively simple and low-cost apparatus. The VIA-Ferrous test provides for standard conditions in a test jar of water-saturated, warm air without the presence of accelerating contaminants. This test method evaluates the combination of (1) vapor transport across a gap containing air, water vapor, and VCI, and (2) corrosion protection. It is intended for use by VCI material manufacturers and users, and it can be used for basic pass/fail qualification tests by production, quality assurance, user, or corrosion specialist laboratories to determine the VIA of VCI materials to protect ferrous metal surfaces from corrosion (rusting), including the component of ferrous metal protection afforded by multimetal VCI materials.
