An Easy Way to Tackle Corrosion in Gun Safes

July 14, 2020

Is your gun safe inside your gun safe? While it may be protected against theft and unwanted intruders, it could still be at risk for corrosion—not only from humidity or moisture trapped inside, but often from the corrosive chemical reactions of the very materials used to make the safe. Fortunately, Cortec® Emitters offer an easy fix for this year’s skyrocketing number of new and repeat firearms purchasers who need to keep their costly investments protected within small or large weapons vaults.

VpCI® Emitters come in many formats and protect different volumes of enclosed space. They all work by releasing Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors, which diffuse and condition the environment, forming a molecular protective layer on the metal surfaces of the guns inside the safe. These VpCI® molecules simply float away when the gun is removed, no cleaning required.

The VpCI®-111 Emitter is a convenient self-stick cup that can be placed inside a gun safe to protect up to 11 cubic feet (0.31 m3) of space. Extra VpCI®-111 Emitters may be added as needed for protection of larger enclosures. Smaller safes of one cubic foot (28 L) or five cubic feet (0.14 m3) can be protected with the VpCI®-101 Device or the VpCI®-105 Emitter, respectively. These are excellent solutions not only for gun owners, but also for gun safe manufacturers who can deliver built-in corrosion protection to their customers by adding VpCI® Emitters from the outset.
