Vapor-Tek Ltd specialises in the development and manufacture of high quality corrosion preventives, for the protection of metal parts, machinery and equipment during storage, transportation and export.


In addition to solvent and oil based coatings the company produces a range of vapour-phase (volatile – VCI/VPI) corrosion preventives for the protection of internal areas such as:

  • Engines
  • Gearboxes
  • Fuel Tanks
  • Export packages
  • Hydraulic Systems, etc

In addition, the company provides solutions for the manufacture of VCI papers and board.


Vapor-Tek has developed a unique grease (Cablegard) for the protection of overhead power lines (conductors). Most conductors are ACSRs (aluminium conductor steel reinforced) and consist of aluminium strands reinforced by galvanised steel. Accordingly all three metals must be protected. The grease has unique rheological (flow) properties which allow it to be applied at room temperature, thus avoiding the problems of applying a molten grease.


The company manufactures a solvent-deposited water displacing corrosion preventive to a Ministry of Defence specification DEF STAN 68-10 (PX-24, NATO Code C-634). The product is used to preserve jet and gas turbine engines and electrical items such as field telecommunication equipment. The material has also been tested & approved for use within the Royal Navy submarine fleet.


The company’s philosophy is to provide products which afford the highest possible level of protection at reasonable cost and never to compromise on quality.
