For rust prevention, has anyone tried volatile corrosion inhibitors? A suitable-looking one is the "Small Enclosed-Area Corrosion Inhibitors and Corrosive-Gas Absorber" (, catalog page 2049, $13 for one good up to 11 cu.ft) or those at .
The one at McMaster-Carr says it is good for electrical enclosures, but I wonder if there are any harmful effects on plastics or IC's.
