    It's getting closer to winterizing time. Don't forget to spray a thin coat of Fluid Film on your equipment before retiring it for the year. For equipment in storage, Fluid Film protects for a minimum of twelve months from salts, fertilizers, atmospheric corrosion and moisture. It is safe to use on all metals and will not harm paint, plastic and synthetic rubbers.

    During winter, Fluid Film is an excellent vehicle undercoating. Hard undercoatings can chip and trap moisture, causing corrosion to spread. Fluid Film remains soft and active, migrating to inaccessible areas to provide complete protection for a full winter season.

    Fluid Film will also keep locks from freezing and works well in snow blower chutes as a release agent.

    No matter what the season, Fluid Film continues to protect and lubricate. Make sure to stock up for the season to come. :)

    Will it do anything spraying it inside salt spreaders before loading them?

    It will help keep them protected and act as a release agent.

    That would pertain to something like an industrial plant that has some corrosive chemicals that get into the air and eat away at the metals in the building, or fertilizers being stored and moved inside a facility that do the same thing.

    that is a fact many people fail to realize dan! my dad has seen hundreds of instances over the years where undercoating trapped the moisture causing more of a rust problem than was there before.
