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


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

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.

Are you still complaining about the price?

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

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.

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.
