3. Protect Your Boat from Rust and Corrosion

Corrosion damage is especially prevalent in marine applications where a constant salt air environment, often combined with high temperatures and humidity levels, increasing the threat of corrosion. If not correctly monitored and avoided, rust can harm your boat, propeller, electrical systems and motor.

Our high-performance Zerust® ICT® Vapor Capsules release a non-toxic vapor with a radius of 1-6 feet within any enclosed area. This vapor invisibly protects your boat from rust and corrosion, ensuring the vessel remains in top shape and condition. Vapor Capsules for Boats >>>

4. Tackle Box Rust Prevention

Similar to boats, equipment within tackle boxes – including lures, sinkers, hooks, pliers, knives, are prone to rust and corrosion damage. Zerust® ICT® Vapor Capsules can be tossed in tackle boxes or reel cases, packing in years of rust and corrosion protection.  For more information, check out “Saltwater Fishing Reel and Tackle Box Rust Prevention Tips Ahead of Spring Break” >>>

5. Electrical Cabinets

Most homes have some sort of electrical cabinet, control box, breaker box, panelboard, or fuse box that houses many electrical switches. Problems caused by electrical equipment corrosion include resistivity changes and intermittent contact failures in critical alarm and control functions.  Protection of Electrical Controls Zerust ICT VCIs and Vapor Capsules >>>
