Technical Data Sheets | Aerosol & Non-Aerosol Black
FLUID FILM BLACK® is a penetrant and lubricant also used for corrosion prevention. It is a non-toxic, long lasting, thixotropic liquid that has been used for over fifty years in the highly corrosive marine environment of ships and offshore drilling rigs. More recently they have been introduced and successfully utilized in the Automotive and snow handling industries as a vehicle undercoating. The wet barrier creeps and migrates into tight seams and into the metal chassis to provide corrosion protection from salts and brines. The addition of FLUID FILM BLACK® allows customers to protect their vehicle while restoring a rich black color to the chassis or cover existing rust.
FLUID FILM BLACK® is formulated from specially processed wool-wax, highly refined petroleum oils and selected agents to provide corrosion control, penetration, metal wetting and water displacement. The long lasting product contains no solvents, will not dry out and will penetrate to the base of all metals, providing corrosion protection from both natural and industrial atmospheres. Heavily corroded and/or frozen parts such as nuts, bolts, shafts, etc. that would normally be damaged during maintenance, can be salvaged by applying FLUID FILM BLACK®.

Spray Nozzle Cleaning
Turn can upside down, point in a safe direction and spray until only propellant escapes. If spray button becomes clogged during use, pull it from the can and clean it with a fine wire or needle. Replace the button with a gentle twisting motion, keeping it pointed in a safe direction. Do not stick pins or other objects into nozzle tube.
