Its a good product. But its not made of gold. I would use it and buy it regularly if it was reasonably priced.

it is reasonably priced if you look at the long lasting benefits of the product as opposed to the initial cost. since it doesn't evaperate it lasts a heck of alot longer than wd40 or any other similar product. therefor ur not replenishing your supply as fast as you have to with other products:cool2:


incidently my lil sign is an inside joke. i am not affiliated with fluid film just a fan:usflag:

Thanks for the good explanation! Seriously, if you want quality you have to be willing to pay a little more for it. The end result is that you will SAVE money because of the performance of a quality product.

As just one example, The Naval Surface Warfare Center in Philadelphia, PA ran extensive testing on a range of products in June, 1997 for use on shipboard cargo/weapons elevators and other equipment using rails, and found that Fluid Film was, and I quote, "the superior performer of all tested materials." In fact, the difference in performance was found to be "profound," and was touted as "the most telling result of all the testing accomplished for this project."

A directive was issued to use Fluid Film, reducing the maintenance schedules for shipboard cargo/weapons elevator guide rails from quarterly to annually, leading to an estimated savings of over six figures.

Now just think about your own maintenance program and schedule, and how much time and money Fluid Film could save you in the long run.

I could buy new equipment for the price of that stuff haha. Plus i dont own a war ship. You would sell alot more if the price was right.

Dano50

Are you still complaining about the price? :confused:

It's all about performance, my friend. Fluid Film is not that expensive.

punt66
07-16-2009, 11:20 AM
yup, $1+ oz in the can. When i own a warship with weapons elevators and taxpayer money i will look you up. Not questioning the products capabilities.

Dano50
07-16-2009, 11:40 AM
The average cost for a regular, 11 3/4 oz can is around $8.50. The easiest way to find your closest retailer is here (http://www.fluid-film.com/shop/index.html).

The average can of Fluid Film has a life-span around here of a week. We use it on EVERYTHING. If it squeaks, or rusts, or needs to look shiny...fluid film it is. We're using it exclusively on the old mowers and plow-trucks to keep them in service for longer.

The more useable life one gets from their equipment, the more $$$ in your pocket.

I simply don't understand some of the professionals I see and hear about.

Keep your equipment clean, maintained and in top opperating condition and you will see a larger return on your investment. A stitch in time saves 9 as they used to say. I'm a big advocate of saving money. I'd rather spend a few bucks on some "insurance" for my equipment, than pay a lot more later.

Examples.

Fertilizers and spreaders. If you aren't using Fluid Film on these units after washing and drying them at least once per week then you are losing money. Fluid film has saved my guys a TON of down-time and repair $$$ in fighting the corrosion so common with fertilizer and ice-melting agents.

I personally don't use FF under mowing decks past the spring wet season, but everything that pivots or moves that doesn't have a zerk needs fluid-film is our motto.

Remember, anti-corrosives and lubricants like FF save money. Makes a unit last longer, operate with less friction which means longer component life and lower fuel consumption.

I am big on maintenace as well. Just dont us FF. I used their sample can and i think its a good product but not willing to spend hundreds on it. I dont see the return from it.

How much does an aerosol can of WD40 cost these days? Cuz all I use it for is drying and cleaning electrical connections.

Hook up with a dealer or online sales place and FF is economical especially when you consider how far a can actually goes. I also use it by the gallon and spray it from a wagner power-shot sprayer on large areas like dump-beds during salting season. Undercoat a truck in a few minutes and it'll still be there in the spring.

One or two quick shots and a pivot point is lubed for the season, spray it in your trimmer head and the string doesn't weld together. I hear it also makes a great sheep-flavored non-stick cooking spray. HAHA

neither has mine but fluid film has stopped the rust from getting worse on plenty of things around here. wd40 would never be able to do that because it does not penetrate into the metal deep enough, it evaporates and it washes away.
