FS 365 and Winter – The Perfect Pair

Posted 2 weeks ago by scottoilerryan

Fearmongering – spreading of frightening and exaggerated rumours of an impending danger or the habit or tactic of purposely and needlessly arousing public fear about an issue.

While we don’t think that advice on locking up your bike this winter is quite fearmongering, we do think that with the right tools and application you CAN in fact still hit the roads in the chilly Christmassy months! We can fight highly-damaging corrosion with our specially formulated FS products, containing a blend of mineral oil, surfactant, anti-corrosion additives and water.  Don’t believe us? Check out the guide below, which features our newest and certainly brightest product – The FS 365 Compact Spray!

Keep it Constant

FS 365 Complete Bike Protector Compact Spray 250ml

Looking to ensure your bike escapes nasty grit, salt and molasses from zooming across those once-slippy roads? Keep your bike constantly maintained with FS 365. While some riders might prefer other products to put on and forget about for a while, constantly re-applying FS will ensure that your bike will build up its own layer of protection, supplemented by constant use. As well as this, a sleek sheen can be achieved by buffing the bike with FS. Beat the frost and grime and simply apply FS – limited elbow grease required ;)

Stay Informed

FS 365 Compact In Action

While FS 365 is meant as an all-over, corrosive inhibiting solution, you must be careful you’re not spraying the solution in the couple of places we DON’T recommend. Brake discs, tyres and callipers are strictly no-go – but if you have applied FS here then don’t panic. Simply wipe and hose off the FS, ensuring that it is completely removed before leaving it – with no damage incurred.

Don’t Be Afraid to Try FS 365!

Having heard that FS 365 is water-based, you may be slightly apprehensive in trying something which is based off a rust accelerator, right? Well not to worry, we can explain how it all works and why it will only protect your bike from corrosion.

Pure water on it’s own will not cause corrosion, however as soon as it comes into contact with the atmosphere it absorbs acidic gases such as carbon dioxide that do.

This is where FS 365 comes in. FS 365 is formulated using mild alkalis and chemical compounds known as pH buffers that work to balance out the acidic elements.

The process of rusting and oxidising requires water vapour, air and time (salt and heat speed up this process as catalysts to the reaction). FS 365 acts as a corrosion inhibitor in two further ways:
In general by supplying a lubricant to all metal surfaces which builds up as you re-apply, protecting them from the air.
When it comes into contact with salt it reduces its catalytic effect on the corrosion process.

FS 365 is a blend of mineral oil, surfactant, anti-corrosion additives and water, which forms a stable micro solution. This forms an effective layer of protection against corrosion, clinging to all surfaces and building up over time with each application. FS 365 is water soluble and readily biodegradable which further helps when it comes to cleaning as any dirt which sticks to the FS layer is easily washed away.

So, in essence, FS 365 works as a barrier protector as well as disrupting the chemical processes involved in corrosion. With continued re-application, FS 365 makes cleaning the bike easier and builds up layers of protection.
