Keeping corrosion off your outdoor gear (an evaluation)

Postby wilmer thrun » Sat Apr 12, 2014 12:06 pm

Guns, bow, knives, fishing and lake gear, and all the other gear we use outdoors is subject to sorrosion. While neglect is the largest factor leading to our gear getting rusty, having a good quality corrosion inhibitor makes out job easier. sinece Im a curious sort always looking for the best products to use in my outdoor adventures I want to see for myself which products work the best.

One thing to do, first off, is not store your gear on cold surfaces (like a garage floor) where moisture will condense. I like to keep my gear in my basement, off the floor. And my basement has an AC unit and dehumidifier running all summer to keep it dry. And my gun safe sits atop wood blocks to keep it off the cold floor in my basement.

I made the mistake of leaving a bucket full of ice-fishing gear on our garage floor. Rusted bad! Our garage is unattached, and not climate controlled at all. The slab is ice cold til July but the air can get pretty humid starting in May.

I picked up two more products at a gun show on Saturday and I have another gun show this weekend to see if I can find more while I wait for the final mail ordered products to reach my doorstep. Then I can begin the process of evaluating all of them. I should be somewhere in the range of about 45 products.

I found some corroosion inhibitors made by Kano Labs: Aerokroil, Silikroil, Lubricone. This is some serious stuff and it works wonders on rust.

I will evaluate corrosion inhibiting

Lubrication

Comapatability

Water displacement properties

what do you mean when you say you are going to test "compatability"?

At no time did I say I was going to “Test” anything. This will not be a test. This will be a comparison/evaluation of products side-by-side. No testing will be conducted. A series of experiments/evaluations and comparisons will be conducted but no tests. In regards to compatibility, I will be applying all the products to a very common substance (polystyrene) as well as recording the mfgr warning about applying their products to rubber, plastic, gun finishes, etc. Some of these products come with warning about getting it on non-metal surfaces while others actually recommend their product for wood, leather, plastic, etc.
