Lanoguard
« on: January 27, 2023, 17:59:24 »
Anyone have any experience with Lanoguard for rust protection?
"Lanoguard was founded in New Zealand more than 38 years ago and came to the UK in 2011. Upon the realisation that the power of nature, and the natural properties of lanolin (wool grease) could stop corrosion in its tracks and protect, preserve, and lubricate machinery – Lanoguard began in the marine rust prevention market helping boat owners to keep their vessels in good working order."

I don't have experience with lanoguard, but have experience using similar lanolin based products on Pagodas and other classic cars. It is something that washes and wears away over time. On a vehicle driven regularly you will need to apply once a year.

Lanolin is a common componet of hand cleaner typically found in most work shops. It's great for cutting through grease.

Gary, I'm sure you have heard of Fluid Film.  Readily available here in NA and it is a lanolin based product.  I was using it until I discovered a new product called Blaster Surface Shield.  Surface Shield is also lanolin based.  Both can be purchased in a spray can.  It's a little thicker than Fluid Film but it seems to last longer.  Here is a comparison https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NE1_EiZIVHs

Be aware that these products may help to prevent rusting but they will not do anything about the rust that's already there.
