    I just got my free sample can and was wondering for those of you putting it on the underside of your deck how often do you re apply it and how well did it work for you?

    I re apply it every few days...maybe it's overkill but it seems to work better that way for me. Fluid Film works great! Its very good stuff

    The biggest reason I use Fluid Film is not its non-stick properties, but its ability to inhibit the formation of rust.

    Great for the undercarriage of your truck too. ;-)

    The number one function of Fluid Film is to stop corrosion. It will stop the effects of salts, fertilizers and pesticides on all metals. With no solvent content, Fluid Film's lanolin base imbeds into the pores of metal, creating a non-drying barrier than prevents oxidation.

    Because it won't evaporate or get gummy or sticky, Fluid Film is also an excellent lubricant. It works especially well as a chain lube, where dust and dirt are an issue. Without the tackiness associated with solvent based lubricants, dirt will not build on top of itself.

    Lastly, Fluid Film can be used as a penetrating oil or as a release agent, helping to keep grass from clumping under mower decks or loads from sticking in dump boxes. As a penetrating oil, it is going to take a little longer to work, since it has a heavier body than most penetrating oils.

    The list of applications is almost endless. Check out our website at www.eurekafluidfilm.com for specific applications.

    It will help keep the grass from clumping. It is not a miracle cure but it will work, especially when used regularly.
