With summer coming to a close, autumn is just around the corner. Of course, once autumn is out of the way, we've got winter to look forward to, and we all know what the greatest danger to our vehicle over winter is...RUST!

Opie Oils can help you keep the rust and corrosion at bay, thanks to our new star product, ACF-50 Anti Corrosion Formula and Corrosion Block. If you've got a car, motorbike or boat that you want to keep in pristine condition, then you may want to have a look below...



ACF-50 Anti-Corrosion Formula

ACF-50, Anti-Corrosion Formula, is a state of the art, anti-corrosion/lubricant compound, that has been specifically designed for the Aero Space Industry. It can be described as an ultra thin fluid film compound which must be applied on an annual basis. ACF-50 actively penetrates through the corrosion deposits to the base of the cell where it emulsifies and encapsulates the electrolyte, lifting it away from the metal surface. ACF-50 then dispels this moisture and provides an atmospheric barrier which prevents any further moisture contact, thereby keeping the cell inactive.
This compound continues to actively penetrate and "creep" into the tightest of seams, lap joints, micro cracks and around rivet heads, dissipating the moisture, even salt water, in these corrosion prone areas. These unique abilities of ACF-50 remain effective for 12 months, gradually disappearing as it is chemically consumed.

- Approved for use on Electronics
- Non-Flamable, non-toxic
- Contains NO solids
- Remains "ACTIVE" for up to 12 months
- Film thickness is 0.00026
- A blend of ultra-pure base stocks and speciality corrosion inhibitors and surfactants

You can find further information and pricing HERE. Don't forget to use your forum discount to get an additional 10% off your order!
All in all, this is a fantastic product that we are proud to stock - designed as an "all round" corrosion inhibitor that adapts to whatever task you throw at it. Available in a 13oz aerosol, 1 quart bottle (with refillable pump spray), 4 litre container and even a 20 litre drum which is perfect for the workshop.

After a slightly thicker "grease" for your electrical contacts or wheel bearings on your trailer? Have a look below for the next great product from the same guys.

Corrosion Block Anti-Corrosion Formula Grease

It's no secret that equipment downtime, repair and replacement are expensive. It is also no secret that regular scheduled preventive maintenance is cheaper than the repair or replacement of expensive equipment. Available in a 57g tube and a 454g tub, you can view it HERE.

In these days of dwindling maintenance budgets and closer scrutiny of operating costs and procedures, you can show a real saving through preventive control of corrosion.

Corrosion Block can be described as a clean, clear, ultra-thin fluid which leaves a non-greasy atmospheric barrier to protect the base metal on interior surfaces. Corrosion Block leaves no gummy residue because it contains no wax, resin, tar, asphalt, silicone or telfon.

Corrosion Block anti-corrosion compound is a state-of-the-art material developed for the marine industry. Corrosion Block has three superior features:

1. Superior Anti-Corrosion compound
- Kills corrosion in progress
- Prevents new corrosion cells from forming for 12-18 months

2. Works as an excellent penetrant

3. Performs as a light lubricant very effectively

You're probably thinking "that's great, but can it isolate the corrosion byproduct from my beloved electrical circuits?" Well, yes. yes it can.
As well as offering the mentioned benefits, it also has many electrical uses. Corrosion Block has the ability to remove moisture, combined with its excellent penetrating and strong dielectric properties, have brought a number of electronics 'back from the dead' with just one application. The Corrosion Block removes the moisture from the corrosion byproduct, then isolates the corrosion byproduct from the electrical circuit. Corrosion Block can be used in many different electrical and electronic applications without fear of damage. Corrosion block will not harm paint or plastic surfaces.

We're sure you'll find this new range of anti-corrosion products to your liking - at Opies, we don't stock a product unless we have complete confidence in it, so it's got our seal of approval. If you fancy a look at the full range of our rust preventatives and anti-corrosion treatments, you can find them all HERE.

That's about it from us for today. As always, should you need any advice, please feel free to give us a call on 01209 202 949 or drop us an email to sales@opieoils.co.uk and we'll be happy to help. We're in the office Monday to Friday, 8:30 - 5:30.

Until next time!

It is good and quick to use but for the 20+ yrs prior to this being available I put a clean cotton rag in an old marg tub , filled it with 3:1 oil and with gloves on after washing the old 76 V1000 wiped all the chrome and polished alloy with it ....kept it corrosion free and it has been used all year round have to say acf is easier to apply...top tip ... always wash in cold water in Winter rinse first then a quality wash/wax then wipe off before applying any preservative most will know this but there are those who don't hot even warm water will activate the salt

I've used ACF50 for the last few years and, although pretty expensive, it lasts ages 'cos you don't need much. Before that it was light machine oil and vaseline which was much messier but still did the trick.

ACF50 sprayers are rubbish though and tend to just give a squirt. I just give the bikes a wipe over with a rag dipped in the stuff. I've never used the aerosol but am told it just puts out too much.

Top stuff.
Tip - spray it into the lid and apply with a paintbrush. It goes just where you need it and a container lasts ages so is more cost effective. Been using it for years.

Love this stuff and have had a can for years, but heard recently that some of the active ingredients go "off" after about 2 years. Can't say I've noticed.

I have an old VX800 that I'm restoring and wiping some AC-F50 onto the rusty chrome or aluminium that has gone "white" and letting it soak for a while then wiping off seems to shift any corrosion and has it coming up like new. Highly recommended.

Hi Ade

Yes, I've heard that about the 2 year lifespan, but it might just be a little less effective after a couple of years.

Cheers
