How to use

The X-Rust firearm vapor capsule will arrive in a plastic bag. The vapor capsule is activated once the plastic bag is opened.

Write the date of installation on the vapor capsule OR consider the purchase of a timestrip which provides a visual indication of when to replace the capsule.

Placement options for the vapor capsule in order to ensure full corrosion protection are shown below.

The enclosure should limit air exchange with the outside atmosphere in order to preserve the lifespan of the capsule.  However small air leaks are acceptable.  Place the capsule close to the source of the airflow.

Securely close door            Place vapor capsule near airflow

Note that if the door of the enclosure is left open then over time all the corrosion inhibitor will disperse to the atmosphere.

Normal access to say a gun safe is fine.  Some of the corrosion inhibitor escapes but once the door is closed again it automatically replenishes.

Important information

X-Rust firearm vapor capsules are non-toxic, odourless, non-allergenic and environmentally friendly. They have no chemicals that flake off, stick to or otherwise damage the product they are supposed to protect. Vapor capsules can be used in conjunction with desiccants. In this situation the vapor capsules acts as an emitter of vapor corrosion inhibitors and the desiccant absorbs water.

Safe to use on wood finishes, optics, electronics, rubber, plastics and other materials/finishes.


Avoid exposure to paper as over time (5+ years) the paper will yellow.
