Force5’s Fire & Rescue works as a corrosion inhibiter, a lubricant, and a cleaner to keep vehicles and essential gear in good working order. It penetrates metal parts to prevent rust and corrosion while forming a bond that repels water and other contaminants to ensure the proper function of equipment while prolonging usable life.

It can also be used on portable lights, power tools, generators, and inverters and is also a lubricant and cleaner that removes dirt, grime, grease, and even existing rust on metal parts and fasteners. The deep penetrating lubricant makes even hydrants with rusty threads easy to use as well. www.force5products.com, 678-883-3578
