It does not dry? Won't wash off? Fluid Film embeds itself in the pores of the metal, and does not wash off easily. Fluid Film undercoating is a thick and durable formula. It is about the viscosity of a latex paint. Fluid Film is an annual application. Bring your vehicle to AUTEX before the winter season, and your vehicle will be protected against corrosion for 12 months in most environments.
Why would I want to have my car undercoated every year with Fluid Film, instead of a traditional dry undercoating? Hard undercoating's are generally 3-4 times the cost of a Fluid Film application. The downside to hard undercoating is with time these tend to chip and crack. The protection is lost as moisture and road salt enters these openings and gets trapped between the hard shell and the vehicle undercarriage. Corrosion will thrive in this environment and you cannot see it until it is too late because it is hidden under the cracked hard shell.
Fluid Film from Autex is a cleaner, less expensive and more effective alternative to oil undercoating or hard undercoating.
