Colin Asked: Is Steelgard better than ACF50 or Scottoiler FS365?

Colin Asked: Is Steelgard better than ACF50 or Scottoiler FS365?

Hi Colin, Steelgard was originally formulated to comply with the requirements of M.O.D specification PX-24 (corrosion preventive compound, water-displacing) amongst its many uses in service with the military is the protection and preservation of gas turbines engines. The specification calls for a highly efficient de-watering fluid and with corrosion preventive properties that perform in the field. The coating has to be easy to apply, burn ash-less and leave no residue when the engines are fired up.
As such it is an easy material to use and is suited to motorcycle application. As a motorcyclist myself I would use it after washing to de-water the bike and displace moisture from hidden nooks and crannies.
It will impart a 2-micron protective film and leave the surface free from moisture. The thicker messier coatings whilst appearing to give a heavy duty protective film are not necessarily good water-displacing fluids, and they can attract and harbour dirt, and be difficult to remove..
Regards Colin

Eddie Asked: Can Steelgard be used to lubricate clutch, Brake & Throttle Cables?

Eddie Asked: Can Steelgard be used to lubricate clutch, Brake  Throttle Cables?

Hi Eddie, Steelgard is an excellent penetrating fluid and lubricant and is suitable for lubricating cables. In certain cases, the cables are routed so as to have a bend or a kink in them where moisture ingress can cause corrosion and ultimately cable failure or sticking.
In this sort of situation, it is advisable to flood the cable with Steelgard in order to displace and push out any residual water, leaving behind a moisture repellent and lubricating film. Regards Colin

GAZ asked: Can I apply Steelgard to my wet Bike?

GAZ asked: Can I apply Steelgard to my wet Bike?

Hi Gaz, Steelgard Advanced 5-in-1 maintenance Fluid is ideal for your Motor Bike and can be applied to a dry clean engine, or directly after washing. Steelgard is a very effective de-watering fluid, which will displace any residual moisture on the metal surface and leave a light oily protective film behind. A very good friend of mine competes in Moto-X at national and international level. After any competition, the power washes the bike down then sprays all the engine, frame and running gear with the Steelgard to de-water and preserve.
There might be a very small amount of light smoke from where any material that has landed on the exhaust, but steelgard is formulated to burn ashless and leave no residue. Please feel free to visit the Maufacturer’s Website – WWW.VAPOR-TEK.CO.UK  website, or contact me directly via the website contact form on the right.
Regards, Colin

Is Steelgard a good product?

Is Steelgard a good product?

Absolutely… Here is what some of our customers have to say:-
JW Says… It does exactly what it says on the tin. Won a can of in the recent prize draw and have tried it out on my shotgun with excellent results. Also cleaned up a wood plane which had got a bit rusty, it now looks like new. Great product
FZ Says… One of the clients who manufacture sand blasting machines, have used SteelGard spray to protect the open end of the shafts in the bearings of transfer tables feeding the parts to the machine. The machine trimmed shaft ends, being exposed to air, always rust very fast after assembly. SteelGard spray gives a simple way to apply the preventive exactly where required. The thin invisible layer of protective film does a great job in preventing rust on the shaft ends.
LH Says… What a great all round quality product. I’ve used lots of different sprays/lubricants over the years and this one just does everything on the tin!
JC Says… I was one of the 12 winners of a can of Steel gard and I used it for my motorbike and really impressed with the product. Will be buying more products in the future
