Vapor Capsule – Large


One year capsule – suitable for enclosed volume of 25.63m3 or radius of 1.8m.


Vapor capsules provide easy to use targeted corrosion protection for use inside any type of enclosure including gun safes, toolboxes, outboard engines, dashboards, etc. Easy to install in seconds with corrosion protection for one year.


Vapor capsules can be used in any enclosure. Typical applications include:

  • Gun safes
  • Inboard engines
  • Navigation tools
  • Storage cabinets
  • Gun rooms
  • Outboard engines
  • Battery compartments
  • Tackle boxes
  • Electrical cabinets
  • Jet skis
  • Tool boxes
  • Pianos
  • Storage units
  • Meter boxes
  • Dashboards
  • Freight containers


  • Targeted corrosion protection
  • Inexpensive
  • Non-toxic
  • Odourless
  • Can be used in conjunction with desiccants
  • Safe for use with all finishes/materials including wood and plastic

How to use

The vapor capsule will arrive packed in plastic. The vapor capsule is activated once the plastic pack is opened. For the VC1 and VC2 vapor capsules peel off the adhesive backing and affix to almost any surface inside of an enclosure. For the VC6 vapor capsule either sit on a suitable surface or attach using a cable tie. Write the date of installation on the vapor 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 vapor capsule.  However small air leaks are acceptable.  Place the vapor capsule close to the source of the 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 or tool box is fine.  Some of the corrosion inhibitor escapes but once the door is closed again it automatically replenishes.

Important information

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.

The VC6 can be used to protect inboard boat engines from corrosion. Simple place in a safe and secure location away from moving parts in the engine bay and seal the hatch. The VC6 will protect 25 cubic metres of space so for large boats two vapor capsules may be required, placed at either end of the engine bay.
