Fluid Film is a solvent free rust/corrosion preventive and lubricant. This is the type of forum where its true value will be proven. We (dwilliams@eurekafluidfilm.com) are willing to offer free sample cans for testing purposes to prove how effective Fluid Film can be.
Fluid Film is manufactured using a unique lanolin base, which will imbed into the pores of metal and set up an unyielding barrier of protection. It is not water soluble, is classified as non-toxic and non-hazardous and will not harm paint, plastic or rubber.
It will prevent rust/corrosion on all metals and will stop existing rust from spreading on contact.
Visit our website at www.eurekafluidfilm.com and write to me at dwilliams@eurekafluidfilm.com for a testing sample.

I have used this paint on my car before and it works wonders. There is a mid sized paint manufacturing firm in Perth, Western Australia which manufactures all kinds of industrial coatings. One of their products is called Metalfix a water-based rust converting and abrasion-resistant primer paint, designed for very badly rusted surfaces. It converts the rust into a metal phosphate within the paint film and simultaneously forms a protective abrasion-resistant skin which tolerates temperatures from minus 40 degrees C upto approximately 1000 degrees C.I thought you may be interested, you can find their details on www.phoenixpaints.com.au.
