VpCI-416 is a heavy-duty water-based alkaline cleaner and degreaser offering unique flash corrosion protection. VpCI-416 can provide corrosion protection for up to 6 months during indoor storage. VpCI416 is formulated to meet the requirements for cleaning and corrosion protection of parts and storage equipment. VpCI-416 penetrates to remove greases and oil deposits from machinery, engines, vehicles, construction equipment and cranes in either industrial or marine applications


The compounds contained in VpCI-416 function by altering hydrocarbons so that the deposits can be removed with water. VpCI-416 can be metered into power washers, steam cleaners, dip tanks and other cleaning equipment. Along with good detergent properties, VpCI-416 is hard water stable. While most cleaning compounds available on the market today are simple blends of surfactants and detergents which limit their cleaning effectiveness, VpCI-416 offers improved cleaning plus multimetal corrosion protection action in one step, resulting in significant savings. VpCI-416 has the unique ability to remove such deposits as heavy hydrocarbons, grease, drawing and buffing compounds and machinery compounds.


• Heavy-duty chemical cleaner and degreaser with unique cleaning action for removing hydrocarbon deposits
• Multimetal corrosion inhibitors leave a temporary protective coating, affording protection for a few months at 5% minimum concentration*
• Provides exceptional resistance to pitting corrosion
• Non-toxic, non-corrosive and does not contain nonylphenolethoxylates
• Provides excellent cleaning action at low temperatures
• Mild foaming
• Effective cleaner at low concentrations (1-3%)
• Exhibits hard water tolerance
• Formulation remains stable during freeze-thaw cycle
• USDA approved
*The estimated time of protection may vary due to


• Machinery contaminated with oils
• Sheet metal coated with temporary protective oils or waxes prior to painting, pickling or machining
• Metal parts contaminated with stamping, drawing or buffing compounds
• Use as an effective additive for rinse tanks to improve protection for dry storage application (5-10% by weight)
• Multiple stage parts washers


VpCI-416 can be applied with any conventional equipment including sprayers, dipping tanks, steam cleaners and power washers.
