    No need to worry about rust and corrosion from attacking your snow plow or spreader. Fluid Film is all you need. It will prevent rust through its powerful seal that will keep the corrosive substances from ruining your winter equipment. Nothing will be able to get through Fluid Film after it is applied.

    Fluid Film's unique wool-wax base provides long term protection for all metals and tack free lubrication for moving parts. It stops existing corrosion on contact!

    Use Fluid Film during the winter months in order to keep the harsh chemicals off of your plow or spreader that could corrode and cause rust damage. The lubricant will provide a barrier for the salt and other harsh mixtures used on the roads during the winter time.

    I'd like to try another free sample.

    The last one I got didn't work so hot in the cold temps and I didn't get much use out of it.

    My only other gripe is that I'd like to find it in 5 gallon containers, instead of using multiple aerosol cans. I know there is an applicator gun you can buy and such, but the price isn't cheap for the fluid film to begin with.

    Sure, I'd like to see if it actually works or not. Like I said, the last one I got didn't spray very well in cold temps and I ended up trashing the can.

    Even if I did like it, can I get in bulk without spending an arm and a leg?

    You could try searching our website for a close dealer or online source for bulk. If you throw away the can, though, don't expect to get another one sent out for free. That costs the company a good chunk of time and money. :p

    I understand, and I'm not fishing for another free sample.

    What's the minimum temp that you are supposed to use it in. I can understand an aerosol can not working in cold temps, but at what temp does the bulk become unworkable?

    With the bulk, it will get heavier with the cold, so it is best to apply around room temperature. That being said, we've tested the product to -30F and it will not freeze.

    Ya, I'm sure it doesn't freeze, but at what test does it become viscous enough to not flow effectively through a sprayer?

    We haven't done any testing to establish that point.

    I've sprayed it at about 0 F, but i had a coleman stove with a stock pot of water boiling or close to it. With some already loaded cans (the quart schutz gun style) warming in the water bath, i'd take one at a time and have at whatever i was coating. Sprayed perfectly if you get to it rightaway. If you pull the can out and leave them sit they'll gel up again after awhile.

    You don't need much water, i used about 1/2 the depth of the cans. I also either took the screwcaps off the cans, or at least loosened them, so any expansion would spill over if need be. Lo tech, but it worked, when i couldn't get to undercoating outside before cold weather.

    Can you use this stuff on painted surfaces of a plow or blower? Will it take the paint off?

    how often do u need to reapply on equipment.

    it would seem it would wear off pretty fast

    Thanks

    Where can I get the air sprayer in the video? I buy FF by the gallon and would like to spray it on vs. painting it on. If it is a standard air sprayer, what type and what psi do you find works best?

    You could use an airless unit like a Wagner paint sprayer to get the job done. I believe that is what we used in that video. Get it up around 2,000 psi for best atomization. All you need is a thin amount of product to get the job done.
