Yes this is used on Car Haulers where you have metal to metal contact for the moveable rails, brush it on and it lasts for a few months depending on wear. Nasty Sh!!t to get off you when it dries.

Definitely looks interesting. Graphite is super slick. I'd be interested to know if anyone has or was willing to try it. Hell, I might even try it seeing as it's only $65 a gal

I can tell you if you step on where it is on metal and you aint careful you will be laying on the ground.

Think I'll contact the seller and see if it will bond to poly. Worth a shot. Might be the new poly revitalizing secret. lol

Wonder how long it would last in water. That would likely be the problem area. But if it's heck to get off your skin once it dries, it might just work after all

Dang, Radtech you're acting like you got a 305 DD. :shock:
Maybe it will stick to the grass better than to poly.

Better bump up your hazardous waste clean up coverage, before you go leaving the lone trail of that stuff all over the place. When you're the only one with that residue on your hull, the entire clean up bill will be yours. :stirpot:
