application longevity

this is a picture of the cardboard baler at my job. at least 2 months ago i sprayed this part down with fluid film so the wheel would spin easy when you open and close the gate while making the actual bale. just look at how wet the threads still are... WD-40 would be dry by now as would most(if not all) other lubricating substances but the fluid film is ever bit as wet and slick as when i first sprayed it

at least twice a day a bale is made so that's at least 4 times a day that wheel is turned over those threads. so lets see that's 14 bales a week so that's 28 times a week so roughly 224? times that wheel has been turned over those threads since the initial application and it's still that wet
