Description: Cortec’s Boiler Gecko™ is a convenient ready-to-use Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI®) packaged in an air-powered spray can for use in the dry layup of small boilers and steam components. Boiler Gecko™ is effective for seasonal or long-term preservation of waterside and fireside components in boiler systems where the use of a Boiler Lizard® or traditional layup methods are not practical or effective. The VpCI® molecules will ensure protection throughout the boiler and direct application to a metal surface is not required. There is no need for product removal or additional flushing before the boiler is filled and returned to service.
