Chemical, electrochemical, or catalytic reaction between a material, usually a metal, and its environment, produces a deterioration of the material and its properties.

We therefor use an additive agent in lubricants called a _ _ _ _ _ space _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ to reduce or eliminate any any of these effects.

Since we will let the general BITOG community research the answer, this question is closed to any engineering or science disciplines.

The question will be left open for 3 days of responses.

I'm going to wing a guess here, because I've only heard it called "vapor corrosion inhibitors", but is it vapor space inhibitor? Like I said, I'm just guessing but it sounds like the same thing and if I'm spelling things correctly, the last word should be inhibitor. Knowing my ability to spell though, I very well could've miscounted the number of words. LOL

While probably not correct and this is a 100% i uneducated guess, the additives may compete for space on the metals so there could be some kind of inhibitor ?

Each underline is a letter for each of the two words.
