Fluid Film chasis of truck and sand from the beach ?

    I want to use this on the underside of my truck. I am a bit nervous because I take the truck on beach. I was just wondering if anyone has used this and taken their truck on the beach ? Does the sand stick to the fluid film ? If yes does it wash off easy ? I wash the truck underside when I get home but just curious if anyone has any experience with this.

    Thanks for the info

    The rule of thumb is that the thinner the lube, the less chance there is for holding debis. The thicker the lube the more debris will cling to it. Think of grease and how everything clings to it. Sometimes you want that purposefully, sometimes not, just depends on the situation. It aint rocket science, its physics. Thumbs Up

    The thing with Fluid Film is that it doesn't leave a thick film on the surface. It will actually penetrate into the metal. Whatever does stick (Fluid Film never gets tacky so you won't get a buildup), will rinse right off. If you do try it, I'd love to hear feedback.

    if it sinks into the metal, should you clean off paint before applying it?

    So fluid film is like rainx for steel?

    Pretty much. It won't penetrate the paint to get to the steel.
    Interesting analogy......
