    That is a first for me to hear. Fluid Film will not freeze. The propellant in the can could, but I don't understand how the whole can could freeze up. You've broken new ground with that one. I am completely puzzled.

    When you get a chance, just give me the batch number on the can. It's located on the bottom. I'll see if there was a problem with the batch.

    It doesn't spray well when cold but won't damage the can on freeze and thaw cycles from my expeirence. I'm a strong supporter of FF and the only place I have not liked it's results are when I sprayed it in the locks for the doors on our tractors, it seems to freeze somewhat. No big deal, I love the product. I will use about $1000 worth/year and will keep doing so.:drinkup:

    I had a couple cans sitting in the garage when it went below zero here the past week and they didn't freeze. They move a little slower like I do but thats about it.

    I had it freeze up on me once last winter too. It was -12* and the rod that my wing slides up and down was freezing up. Grease didn't work so I tried FF and that froze too. Ended up just using penetrating oil and then it worked fine. Gets a lot of road gunk on it, so that doesn't help either.
