Prevent Corroded Barrels With the Right Gun Cleaner and Gun Oil

Responsible firearm owners know that proper gun maintenance and storage is obligatory. Newer models may not necessarily need to be cleaned after every use (though there is some debate among enthusiasts on ideal cleaning frequency), but it’s a given that any gun incorrectly cleaned or stored is vulnerable to damage from unburnt primer build-up, corrosion and rust due to water/humidity exposure. It’s key to choose the right gun cleaner and gun oil is key to prevent corroded barrels and other mechanisms.

There are a number of gun cleaner products that promise three-in-one treatments – Clean, Lubricate and Protect, or CLP for short. The problem is a matter of practical chemistry. A CLP product may clean most of the debris and fouling you’re trying to remove. However this type of formulation means the lubricant isn’t as effective. Inadequate lubricant will act as a debris magnet, attracting dirt, dust and sand. The result is mechanisms that are more prone to clogging and malfunction. Gun owners who solely use CLP cleaners often report their guns jam more frequently and fire fewer rounds than those who use separate gun cleaner and oil treatments.

For this reason, Zerust manufactures gun cleaner and gun oil products separately. Both are produced to offer optimal performance, keeping the weapon in prime condition and significantly reducing incidences of stoppages.

Electric Panel Box Rust Prevention: Zerust Vapor Capsules Offer Protection

Electronic panel box rust has the potential to be incredibly dangerous – not to mention a shock to your pocketbook. After all, rust is sure sign moisture has wormed its way into electrical components, and electricity and water are two elements that can never safely mix.

Yet the problem is relatively common, according to BuyersAsk.com, a resource for home buyers, sellers and agents. It’s estimated that 1 in 5 home inspections reveal some degree of water entry into electric panels, in some cases with significant damage.

At a recent annual conference at the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) has an annual conference wherein common electrical technology issues are discussed, it was noted that moisture reportedly causes 12 percent of catastrophic failures of electrical panel boxes and 40 percent of other damages to the systems.

Home and business owners have significant interest in preventing electric panel box rust. The use of vapor corrosion inhibiting technology, or VCI, has been a breakthrough on this front.
