Rust Prevention Solutions
JUST because something has always been done one way, does not mean it is the best way, according to Fluid Film and its customers.
For years there have been rust and corrosion products, which promise a lot and do not deliver.
At the other end of the scale there have been products that do deliver but do not have high levels of brand awareness.
The comparison shown in the image pictured has demonstrated Fluid Films’ long-term corrosion control economy.
In addition, the surface adherence of its lanolin-based formula has been self-healing in cases of scoring or similar damage and it remains soft and flexible, does not wash away or crack.
While most products of its kind contain between 70 and 90 per cent solvent, Fluid Film contain none, except for the propellant in its aerosol cans.
This has meant that only 10 to 30 per cent of competing products have usable corrosion control materials.
The rest evaporates, contaminating the atmosphere and is useless to the user.
Fluid Film penetrates into metal, blocking off the oxygen and moisture that cause rust and corrosion.
Made from naturally occurring lanolin, it forms a barrier, seeping into the pores of metal.
Fluid Film really has been perfect for all areas in mining.
It can be used on air tools, battery connections, chains, conveyor belt rollers, as well as cranes and lifts.
Fluid Film has also been successful on door guides and mechanisms, hinges, drain pans, drill bits, chucks and presses.
Exposed gears and machined surfaces, hydraulic cylinders, internal pump preservative, wire rope preservation, mould releasing agent, nuts, bolts and studs, pin locks, and pipe threads have also had the benefit of Fluid Film.
From a work health and safety perspective, Fluid Film has been a great choice for the mining industry because it is classified as non-toxic and non-hazardous.
Fluid Film does not contain solvents, phenols, heavy metals, arsenic, pcb’s, pc’s, tcdd’s or other dioxin related substances.
It has been manufactured using an all-natural lanolin base.
Fluid Film has been used consistently in Western Naval Forces, who have all done their due diligence, ensuring it meets MIL-SPEC.
Fluid Film has performed for sustained periods of time, clinging tenaciously to metal surfaces, stopping or preventing corrosion and providing silky slick lubrication.
In independent tests Fluid Film consistently outperforms other products.
