Matt has used it and liked it alot. He put it underneath the deck, made scraping a breeze. He wants to buy this by the gallon if possible, not in aerosol can. i'll need to check out their website and see where to locate this.

I buy the big cans. The spray cans don't last too long. I have a degreaser spray attachment that siphons it up out of a bottle and hook it up to my air compressor. It's really thick and I water it down a bit so it can srpay . I spray the underside of the deck with it.

Is this product used mainly to make clean up of the underside of the mower deck easier? Or does it have other applications?

The easiest place to find a dealer for Fluid Film is through the dealer locator (http://www.eurekafluidfilm.com/locator/dealer.html)on our website (http://www.eurekafluidfilm.com). We are also sold nationally through John Deere farm equipment dealers and are available online through Mowpart.com.

If you have never tried Fluid Film, just contact me (dwilliams@eurekafluidfilm.com) and I'll get a can right out to you.

The main function of Fluid Film is as a corrosion preventive. It imbeds into the pores of metal and prevents any oxidation from occurring. It is also an excellent lubricant because it remains slick and will not evaporate from the surface. Because it contains no solvents and will not get gummy or sticky, it makes it an excellent chain lube and helps keep grass from clumping when applied under the deck of a mower.

It can also be used as a penetrant but will not act as quickly as other products, like PB Blaster. Fluid Film will keep you from having to cut off a bolt. It never stops working and will continue to migrate and seep into inaccessible areas. Give it enough time and it will get anything loose.

For an indoor application Fluid Film can last at least a year with one shot. It is an excellent protectant for battery terminals. Fluid Film is non-conductive so make sure your connections are tight before applying Fluid Film. One application will last at least a year.

Fluid Film will not freeze, which makes it great as an ice inhibitor or snow release agent. It will help keep locks from freezing.

Use Fluid Film as an undercoating, and one no-drip application will last a full year protecting your car from road salt and moisture.

Visit our website for more information or ask any question you wish. That is what I'm here for.

I just e-mailed you for a sample. I've have a chain around a tree with a BIG padlock on it that has been there for at least 8 years. Whenever I think of it I will spray some wd into it and try to open it. I will put some Fluid Film into it and give it time (not 8 years) and see if it will open.

Will instructions come with the product? I am wondering if when I apply it to the underneath of a mowing deck if there is a waiting time before I can mow.

Thanks

Thats a good question...can you mow right after or should it be sprayed after your work is done?

Clean out your deck, spray Fluid Film and get to work. :) Fluid Film can be sprayed over a damp surface, but for best results, use Fluid Film on a regular basis. I'm not just saying this to sell product (Let's face it, I'm a salesman), but Fluid Film will work better the more often you use it. The fact that Fluid Film contains no solvents and imbeds into the pores of metal means that the more often you apply to your deck after mowing, the more it will imbed and retain the slick coating that is going to keep grass from sticking and protect your deck from corrosion.

sprayed under my deck and every bolt and spring on my exmark wb. its really thick and clings to what you put it on. Had a door in my house always squeaked tried everything on it within a day would be squeaking again, sprayed with Fluid Film 3 days ago not sqeaking yet. PS also shot some in all my padlocks no more hard to open padlocks. I ordered a gallon love it

Thank God you didn't lose an eye! I am so sorry to hear about the accident. I hope everything heals up well and you're welcome for the sample. It seems very insignificant when reading this post.

Just tell him what you think of the product and how you would like to see him carry it. Give him our info (http://www.eurekafluidfilm.com/globals/contact.html)and let him know we will help support the product.

That's it! Our customers are all we need to make this happen. If your dealers recognize they can sell the product they will carry it.

Thank you!

Got a sample can from Dano a couple months ago. Love it. I put it on everthing. Mower Deck is clean, House door locks were stiff put some fluid film in there now the key slides in and out easily, Garage door wheels, anything. I have heard some people wash their mowers then spray it over the mower to keep it clean. Havn't tried that yet but thinking about it.
I will never go back to WD-40 or anything like that again. Keep Fluid Film in my cabinet and my truck all the time. Once you get a sample from Dano I guarentee you will buy some more.

Thanks Dano. Never did get a shirt but o-well.

When you say that it will imbed into the pores of the metal, does it have to be exposed metal? What about painted surfaces?

After the end of the season when I do final clean up on equipment I will spray paint the underside of the deck in areas that the paint has peeled away from. Will paint adhere to a fluid film treated area?

Good questions. You could spray Fluid Film over a painted surface and it will protect the same as it would over bare metal. If you want to paint over a surface treated with Fluid Film, you are going to want to clean it off with a good biodegradable cleaner, mild solvent or pressure water wash. Paint will not adhere if Fluid Film is on the surface since Fluid Film doesn't dry.

I got my sample can a week ago. Thank you very much. For over a year I have been upset with the lack of response when pulling back on the control arms of my Scag Z Cat. I was having terrible experiences on thin turf. I've discussed it in this forum a few times. I changed dampners/shocks. There are these little springs the control arms hit in reverse. I sprayed them with WD 40 at someones suggestion, but that didn't do anything. (someone suggested removing these springs altogether). Anyways, the first thing I did with my sample can of Fluid Film was spray down those daggone springs. I pulled & pushed on the control arms a few times & left it overnight. Well, I don't believe it but I am getting much better contol out of my "controls". I'm so glad I asked for a sample. I'm gonna blast em' regularly. I will use fluid film from now on. Many Thanks!!!!

I have a dumpbed insert in my pickup. It has some rust on it, just surface. I am going to paint it with rust oleum. Then if i spray on the fluid film I should not get rust ever again?

I am not sure about what you mean by a dumpbed insert. When I hear the term I think of some type of a hard plastic liner. If your insert is going to be out in the elements, you are going to have to reapply Fluid Film on occasion to keep it protecting properly.

Just got my free sample yesterday. Thank you very much.

I will try it on the padlock that has been rusted shut for the last several years and post my results.

I was wondering if it has ever been used on plows, snowblowers or shovels to keep that wet sticking snow from clogging up the works.

43 degrees here, snow can't be far away.

You bet Fluid Film (http://www.eurekafluidfilm.com)will work during the winter months to protect equipment and keep snow and ice from sticking. We have some great testimonials from snow-equipment operators regarding Fluid Film and its ability to work for those applications.

Fluid Film won't freeze so neither will your locks. It will help keep snow from sticking in snow blower chutes and will help keep ice from building up on snow plows.

I tried some on my snowplow cutting edge, and after it rains it sits underwater after it drys it still covering the edge.
