    ...but, isn't natural rubber the one recognized material Fluid Film advises against treating???

    this is what the website says....

    "Fluid Film has no adverse effects on plastics or synthetic rubber. On 100% natural rubber, some swelling can occur."

    i'll deal with some swelling as long as there's no dry rot:weightlifter:

    Any feedback on the tarp test? I dare you to say "tarp test" ten times total.

    I am interested as well. Thats what makes this a great forum, we have a few people willing to try anything, some of the greatest discovery's were made by mistakes. who would have thought that ff would make a mower deck easier to clean and stay on for any length of time until someone tried it.

    I would have guessed it would not have worked well as the swelling of the rubber would have caused it to dry rot but I have never tried it.

    well unfortunately i am not very pleased with the results :( pictures don't lie and these pictures i feel show that they both the treated and untreated strap dry rotted equally. however, i am also positive these are not the greatest quality straps out there considering i bought them at a flea market. i would not be opposed to trying it again if i ever buy top of the line straps and i wont be opposed to spraying down any i might strap to the trucks during the winter since a fresh coat should keep the snow/ice from sticking:)

    Thanks for the update! That was a different application and I thank you for taking the time to test it out. I wasn't exactly sure how it would work, but I guess now we know. :drinkup:
