3-In-One oil is no longer the only product bearing the distinctive red, white, and black logo that has graced oil cans for decades. Now the No-Rust Shield joins it on the shelves of the local home center. The No Rust Shield, surprisingly enough, is aimed at doing just that — stopping rust from forming on your tools.

The rust shield works by releasing “metal-seeking Vapor Phase Corrosion Inhibitors” (VpCI) that make their way around any enclosed area up to 2 cubic feet and prevent the moisture in the area from turning your tools into that fabulous shade of orange we all try so hard to avoid — for up to 90 days.

Giving the system the benefit of the doubt, at a cost of $5 each, that means it can keep a toolbox free of rust for roughly six cents a day. Living in a climate like Dallas we don’t really need that sort of thing, but gearheads in Seattle may be hanging them like pine tree air fresheners all around the shop.

    I may have messewd up my prior reply – but wanted to say that I had seen toolboxes from Flambeau (they call them ZeRust) that are said to contain VpCI.

    Excuse me, a Vapor Phase what?! Do you want to breathe that stuff? Until there’s more info about that metal-seeking-magic, my bullshitdetector’s on red.

    Sounds to me like a fancy version of solid camphor blocks, which have been used in toolchests for years.

    The camphor slowly evaporates and the resulting fumes deposit a protective layer on the surface of the tools.
