    Where to buy anti-corrosion spray, like acf-50 locally?

    Does anybody know where to get ACF-50 or something similar in the GVA?

    Google search the parent company. Their website should have a list of local distributors or a "Where to buy" tab. You'll probably find a couple places in richmond
    have it.

    The problem with industrial sellers is you can't just buy a few bottles of this stuff, and buying anything is too complicated to be worth the time. I'm surprised nobody stocks this stuff locally since we salt our roads for 1/4 of the year.

    I used to get tonnes of that stuff from work, too bad we don't use it anymore. How about something like LPS-3? I think it's easier to find locally. Lindair used to stock all that stuff, however they went belly up a few months back so it's no longer an option. You could try Aviall but they're just going to have to order it in as everything they get comes from Texas.

    Funny, a motovan rep just gave me a sample bottle of this product, or a similar one. I cant recall the name right now. But they definitely carry them.

    well look at that i learned something new...

    As a by-product, it’s not a bad light duty lubricant for things like locks and cables, as well as being approved by its Mil-Spec (Mil-C-81309E Type II) for use in switches and on contacts.

    thanks for posting up, I had no idea this stuff existed, my baby is a couple years old now n' as i've decided
    to keep'er 4evah i've been searching for some way to help in her yearly maintenance, moisture is a big issue here in the West coast...




    ACF-50 aerosol is 95% product, hence virtually no propellant. Keep the tin in a warm environment, shake very well before use and remembera little ACF-50 goes a long way, so keep a rag handy to soak up any excess - then use the rag to help spread the product.



    ACF-50 has strong capillary action so will creep into all the areas that moisture can, 'actively' pushing out moisture and replacing it with protection. Go cautiously when applying to callipers to ENSURE YOU KEEP IT OFF THE BRAKES.



    Use ACF-50 anywhere, except the brakes, on your bike including the engine and exhaust (will smoke on first start and burn off down pipes but still slows down corrosion process). Safe on paintwork, most rubbers and brings up black plastic trim a treat. ACF-50 contains no water and is approved for electrics so spray directly into electrical joints and components where it will prevent corrosion induced failures and high resistance joints.



    Works well at stopping dirt, mud and road gunk from sticking. You can come back from a winter ride with a quick hose off and all the mucks gone with the bike still protected. Areas not in direct contact with the elements ie tank/seat areas, electrics require treating approx once a year. Other exposed areas re-apply as necessary. You can tell the product is still 'Active; as water will bead on contact...having no water content and not being water soluble ACF-50 only dissipates by being 'sacrificial' whilst stopping existing or new corrosion so just re-treat as required.
    Take a look at the video at the bottom of this page to give you an idea on how to wash and treat your ride.


    Remember, ACF-50 protects jets on US aircraft carriers! If it works for these jets in these conditions, think how well it's going to work for your bike!

    The video was a good example of how much a good detail can change your bike but there was a TON of work
    done in terms of cleaning/detailing before they applied the ACF-50, so I attribute most of it to elbow grease.
