Fluid Film NAS
Fluid Film® NAS penetrates, lubricates and is an excellent corrosion prevention system. Fluid Film NAS is nontoxic, long lasting, thixotropic liquids that have been used for over fifty (50) years in the highly corrosive marine environment, for bulk handling, cargo ships, boating and offshore drilling rigs.
Recently Fluid Film NAS has been introduced and successfully utilized in the aerospace, aircraft and automobile industries and for home maintenance. Fluid Film NAS is an industrial grade lubricant and industry grade corrosion protection and rust inhibitor.
Facilities where Fluid Film is used include government facilities, commercial fishing concerns, gas companies, agriculture, salt plants, municipal plants, power plants, manufacturing plants and pulp and paper mills.
Fluid Film® NAS is formulated from specially processed wool-wax, highly refined petroleum oils and selected agents to provide corrosion control, penetration, metal wetting and water displacement. This long lasting product contain 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® AS & NAS.
