    Wurth also sells an aerosol spray wax that is cheaper than the equivalent Tectyl spray and works as well in my experience.

    I bought a tin of the ACF-50 and am not very impressed yet. It might be great for corrosion prevention but from an application point of view, I still prefer Tectyl 506.

    It is very thin, oil like. It does not have the clinging on ability of Tectyl. It does not do the immediate capillary effect like Tectyl but forms a droplet and drips of. Very messy.

    Early days but I think I might stick to Tectyl in the future for automotive use.

    It seems to work well when cleaning firearms though. It is probably more suitable for these types of applications.

    I was given a sample of the Corrosion Block which appears to be the same thing but just ever so slightly thicker.Name:  1590844618549.jpg

    it comes off too easily. The Tectyl forms a solid barrier.

    Tectyl and ACF50 are totally different tools.

    Tectyl is a more long-term corrosion protection.

    While ACF50 is a shorter term corrosion protection.
    It's very nice for places that needs regular attention/inspection as well as stuff like actuators, electric plugs and hinges.

    It's used on aircraft carriers to coat parts exposed to salt spray.

    It's a penetrating oil. Apply it on a cloth and wipe on area. Wipe off excess after 10 -25 minutes.

    I use it on my rear cross member after every wash.
    The rest, like chassis innards and under vehicle is treated with an Ardrox product similar to Tectyl.

    I reapply that every 5 years as gravel eats it away after a while.

    The Wurth I'm referring to works the same as Tectyl, it's a heavy wax coating and I've used both and can't say I've noticed much difference, it definitely doesn't come off easy.

    Wurth does have an enormous product catalogue so perhaps you are referring to a different product.

    Wurth do indeed offer a wide and good array of products.
    Could you perhaps give us the product name from Wurth that you are referring to Skylark?

    I also live 300m from the sea and everything is rusting. Kitchen and bathroom utensils, replaced with proper stainless. Curtain tracks facing the sea now need to be replaced. Aluminium window handles, some have been replaced as they had corroded to bits. Cupboard hinges, garage door sliders and everything in the garage also rusting. Door handle screws don't last long.
    I have found, that everything that i had previously sprayed with normal penetrating spray rusts( Q20, spark, plofit etc) and i have the following theory:
    The normal rust penetrating spray contains brakefluid. Once it dries, the steel has been cleaned of any protective layer and the oxygen then gets to the clean steel.
    I have lately started using WD40 and tectyl glashelder.
    Be careful of using silicone on any steel products as it contains acetic acid and promotes rust. Look at vehicle window rust that have been repaired with silicon

    The Tectyl differs in price from R145 to R210 a can, I know the price is below R80 a can because my friend sells it... Cant think the profit margin is so huge

    im on the South coast Ramsgate l..lived in Pmb and wife said if i convince her to move to the coast ..its gota be a house on the beach...literally.

    We are sea facing and right on the beach with beach access 100 m ffom waters edge.

    i have grown to accept that everything rusts in the house and constant maintenance.

    i however am still battling after 3 years to accept my cars and tools starting to corrode.

    what bothers me is that i can not seems to get rid of the moisture in the garage.

    people suggested installing a dehumidifier to suck out the moisture ..costly but that will eventually burn out.




    washing the cars with paraffin does help

    finally deceided to rent out a workshop space closer inland near port edward to store my vehicles and projects just to protect them from the harsh weather .


    sorry to ramble ..but i wish i had a solution
