  • ActivDri™ Corrosion and Moisture Control Packets
    ZERUST® ActivDri™ packets are patent-pending, economical, effective, and easy-to-use dual action, moisture control vapor corrosion inhibitor (VCI) sachet products....

  • ActivDri™ packets protect against environmental contaminants and humidity that aggressively corrodes metal parts, components, electronics, and electrical components/equipment. Corroded metal components will lead to quality rejects, while corroded electrical components may cause system reliability issues, system malfunction, and intermittent connection errors, leading to production stoppages and safety hazards. 

    Use ActivDri™ packet’s dual-acting moisture and corrosion control to protect highly sensitive metal parts and electrical components from corrosion damage during operation, shipping, and storage. Contact your ZERUST® representative for more information on how to apply ZERUST® ActivDri™ corrosion prevention and moisture control packets to your specific application.
