A major manufacturer of military aircrafts needed fuselage electronics, tooling sets, wing sections, and even complete aircrafts to arrive without corrosion. However, when using oils and greases to protect metals, the manufacturer’s engineers noticed corrosion in various areas. After working with the ZERUST® corrosion management team, the company applied ZERUST® corrosion prevention solutions to stop corrosion during shipment. Using ZERUST® helped them proactively meet their stringent contract and industry standards while safely managing corrosion.


The company implemented the use of ZERUST® VCI Vapor Capsules, models: VC6-1 and VC2-2, to protect the fuselage electronics, wing sets, and tooling sets from corrosion damage during shipment. ZERUST® Vapor Capsules emit a non-toxic, non-reactive, odorless corrosion inhibiting vapor (VCI) that is safe for sensitive electronics. This vapor settles on metal surfaces and forms a powerful corrosion protection shield even in hard-to-reach areas.

VC2-2 VCI Vapor Capsules protect fuselage electronics from rust & corrosion
For 2 Years

VC6-1 VCI Vapor Capsules protect wing sets and tooling sets from rust & corrosion
For 1 Year

Customer Satisfaction


All equipment arrived at its destination free of corrosion and in perfect working order! The use of ZERUST® Vapor Capsules prevented corrosion and substantially decreased the use of ineffective oils and grease – saving the company time, money, and workforce while minimizing hazardous waste. Contact a ZERUST® Representative for a comprehensive corrosion management solution most effective for your metal assets.
