The chemical compound used in The Inhibitor System is called VCI (Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor). The VCI slowly vaporizes into an enclosed area, placing an invisible barrier over a wide variety of metal surfaces. These vapors not only provide a great barrier, but they are capable of penetrating into the smallest cracks or crevices, rendering moisture and oxygen incapable of starting the corrosion process.
The Inhibitor’s VCI has a proven track record of protecting a variety of metals such as Iron, Steel, Brass, Bronze, Copper and many others.
Testing At Scientific Control Laboratories in Chicago, IL (independent laboratories) they prove The Inhibitor works. Testing began by purchasing identical shotguns, fishing tackle and hand tools. First we cleaned their surfaces to remove any protective coatings, then placed them into identical cases, then we placed them into identical cases, one identical set with The Inhibitor and one without.
The cases were then placed into a large moisture tank filled with 45 gallons of water that was maintained at 95 degrees fahrenheit, 100% humidity for five days, and the photos (taken only minutes out of the moisture chamber) show the results.
During our testing, only the Inhibitor cartridge (plug) was used. We did this to show how effective our plug really is. Don't forget our Inhibitor wiping cloth or gun shields - make it an Inhibitor System.
The hammer on the top contained The Inhibitor plug. The one on the bottom did not. See the difference!
