The VpCI-368 corrosion-inhibiting coating is more powerful with the addition of extra vapor-phase corrosion inhibitors. VpCI-368 is designed to provide protection for metal substrates exposed to harsh outdoor conditions.
The VpCI-368 EVP corrosion-inhibiting coating is more powerful with the addition of extra vapor-phase corrosion inhibitors. VpCI-368 is designed to provide protection for metal substrates exposed to harsh outdoor conditions. The dark brown, viscous liquid dries into a firm moisture-displacing, wax-like film that can be removed by mineral spirits or alkaline cleaners. The film can be used for a variety of applications where heavy-duty corrosion protection is needed such as parts storage, underbody coating, wire rope, steel plate, machined parts, etc. VpCI-368 EVP (Extra Vapor Protection) is also designed for application in complex, sealed spaces where a greater concentration of vapor inhibitor is beneficial. The extra dose of VpCI vaporizes from the coating, fills the enclosed space, and adsorbs on difficult-to-reach surfaces. This is helpful on applications such as pipe internals where it is challenging to thoroughly cover all metal substrates.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
