Re: Fluid Film....Anyone use it?

I've heard it puts a very good coating on everything

In the Air Force I used it all the time. The only thing it is good for is rust control. It will leave a nice film on what ever you spray it on. It can become sticky. Good for long time storage. To clean it off just spray wd40 on it.

Re: Fluid Film....Anyone use it?

from the MSDS sheets it looks like nothing more than petroleum or mineral oil, depending on the application...

Re: Fluid Film....Anyone use it?

Being with the Army for so long, I gotta say, Cosmoline. This looks like some oils in a can. I have seen equipment come out of 40-50 year storage with Cosmoline on them and not a spot of rust. If it doesn't meet long term storage MIL Specs, I'd look for something else. There are many suppliers available. For example: http://www.mil-specproducts.com/cosm...FQpzHgodNTZ1gA

If you look under "about the fluid film" then "the company" it's described as lanolin or wool wax.

I think I used to see this stuff on parts when I worked with the Navy.

It's kind of like a wax coating you find or near gears, parts etc. but light and thin if I remember correctly.

If you're a Navy guy, then you should know all about Cosmoline then - as I said above.

How thick does the cosmoline go on, seems like it would be more of a long term application, that stuff is pretty pricey too

Never got into parts replacement, repairs or anything like that, I was the guy who did the operational testing of systems on a Subs after they overhauled and put back together, so I didn't have first hand experience with the stuff.
