I've been using Fluidfilm on my engines for years, but never considered it to be a replacement for Woody Wax. If someone knows it can be used for the same purpose, with the same results let us know about it. It doesn't seem like a product that would easily rinse off and not leave a greasy slippery mess on the deck, but hey, I'm always looking for ways to save a buck.

I've used it on non skid before. Just apply like woody wax. Use very very sparingly just like the woody wax. If you use to much yes, you will have a greasy mess.

A couple of years ago, I called FluidFilm in South San Francisco ( used to live there)
and flat out asked if Woody Wax was the same stuff and they said absolutley not.
To me, it doesn't seem the exact same.

Guys over on classicparker using it like woody wax. Wonder if woody has UV protectors in it and fluid film doesn't, that may be a difference?

Great stuff, actually smells like and seems to have the same consistency of Woody Wax. May not have the same UV inhibitors. Doesn't mention it on the can. Not easy to find, but I've had excellent luck with it.

Good for protecting stainless and polished aluminum? What about powder coat?

Default Grainger

For those looking for Fluid Film. If you have a Grainger close by, they carry their entire line. Picked up some last week. Not open on weekends though which I found kinda weird. Anyhow, works great and am interested if anybody gets any more info on UV protection in FF vs WW.

I'm going to give this a try as well. I'm not sure why Woody's seems to be so popular for aluminum. I used aluma guard from Rupp on my t-top and rod holders right next to a section where I used Woody's and I can't tell any difference. To me, it's just not worth the money. Maybe I'm missing something it offers but to the eye I can't see a difference.

I've used Woody on the decks and read on here somebody was using mop and glow so I've been using it a few months and am pleased. I use it each cleaning so the layer is always fresh. It seems to repel about the same except for maybe the first couple of trips with fresh woody's. It's easy to use liberally but a can of Woody's has lasted two years using just on the decks.
