    They are no different then any other company. Says on there website they use petroleum based undercoat. No mention of fluid film. Everyone does undercoating pretty much. Just not fluid film as the cost is too much.

    Only fluid film has Joy, and she is worth the extra cost

    From my experience using both, I vote for Krown as the better option for rustproofing a vehicle body. Fluid film has its place, but it doesn't do as good of a job at creeping and tends to wash off faster. You can buy Krown by the pail at any outlet that applies it to cars for about $200/20L.

    Don't get me wrong, I will still buy FF for other things.

    I had my Ford sprayed when it was new and less then a month later I got it sprayed again but with rust check. This was in fall not winter. Only thing Krown has that's good is that salt wash stuff.

    Interesting... although if it was new, it did its job and got into the cracks where you don't see it, not much bare metal on a new truck to protect or cling to really, and anything will just wash off paint eventually - especially in the fall when its wet on the roads. Everyone I know swears by Krown and I've seen it work for myself. If you want something that sticks, get it with tack added. The consistency is very close to Fluid Film, but it still creeps well.

    And yes, the salt wash stuff is good also. Used it quite a bit and it seems to make a big difference.

    what is the "tack" additive ?

    I just had my truck krowned.
    I tld them that I was gonna be salting with it & they recommended that we didnt really put too much pressure under the truck with water (at the coin car wash).

    Im almost thinking, wouldnt it have been better to have rubberized the bottom of the truck & apply fluid film inside the door holes & crevices ?

    Atleast the rubber stuff doesnt wash off easily.

    There is an article on line by the Canadian armed forces, it was called , review of corrosion control programs, they tested ten products and their properties to protect metal exposed to the elements, gives a person a little extra knoweledge
