Victory VCI Bags prevent rust by emitting a corrosion inhibiting vapor of protective positively charged ions throughout the closed bag. Corrosive elements like humidity, salty air, heat, water or fumes inside the bag will hydrolyze into VCI protective ions that attract to the metal surface forming a powerful bond with metal atoms. This bond creates a protective microscopic barrier that passivates the electron flow between the anodic and cathodic areas on the metal surface & interrupts the electro-chemical corrosion process. The barrier is dry and passive; therefore, it does not have any impact on electrical systems & components.
