thixotropic, and will get heavier upon sitting. Achieving room
temperature with the product will help as well. If a thinner version is
wanted, start by mixing a small amount of lightweight motor oil to the
product until the desired consistency is reached.
FilmŪ is a lanolin
based product containing no solvents. It will not evaporate or dry from
the surface. Fluid FilmŪ will leave a wet, non-drying film, that will
provide long term corrosion protection on all metals and superior
lubrication for all moving parts.

FilmŪ needs to be
sprayed at 60-80 psi. For larger applications, standard airless paint
spraying equipment is required.
What makes Fluid FilmŪ different from the competition?
most products contain between seventy and ninety percent solvent, Fluid
FilmŪ contains none

areas for lubrication or protection. With its unique lanolin base, Fluid
FilmŪ will actually
embed itself in the pores of metal, resisting wash off and keeping
moisture and oxygen from getting to the base metal. Containing no
solvent content, Fluid
FilmŪ lends itself
to numerous applications where the comparative solvent-based products
would not even be considered.

The Department of the Navy conducted testing on maintenance products for
Navy vessels and Fluid
FilmŪ was found to
provide superior performance. In fact, according to the Naval Surface
Warfare Center, Carderock Division, Philadelphia, PA where material
testing took place, the difference in performance...profound...most
telling result of all the testing accomplished for this project."
The Naval Ammunition Depot in Pensacola Florida conducted tests to find
safer products for corrosion preventatives, and Fluid
FilmŪ was found to
supply superior protection in salt water environments. Furthermore, the
test results found "outstanding results" in direct exposure to
the outside environment, and concluded with these findings: "The
results of the tests preformed indicate a superiority in Fluid
FilmŪ for long term
corrosion protection. The properties of Fluid
FilmŪ help to
achieve a more environmentally safe work place." Testing was also
done in an outside testing facility according to Salt Spray resistance -
ASTM B117 standards where Fluid
FilmŪ was tested
against WD-40, CRC 3-36, Corrosion X and LPS-3. After 3 weeks exposure Fluid
FilmŪ had a total
surface corrosion of 1%, while the closest competitor contained 40%
surface corrosion. Two of the other competitors had achieved 100%
surface corrosion during this same period, proving once again the
superior quality of Fluid

more vigorous cleaning is advised. A high-pressure, hot water or steam
detergent wash (minimum 120F) is needed. Utilizing cleaning compounds
specifically formulated to remove grease/wax as a pre-treatment process
for painting are highly recommended.
