Ballistol is ideal for use on boats as a corrosion inhibitor. Use around the house, garden & car on anything that squeaks, binds or needs protection against corrosion.
Most normal corrosion inhibitors protect only against oxidation. This is done by covering up the surface to which they are applied acting like a paint or coating. That works fine, as long as lubrication is not also needed on the same part. Ballistol provides a combination of lubrication and corrosion protection and thus fights corrosion in a way which is not disruptive to lubrication. Ballistol will inhibit corrosion chemically, not mechanically as its alkalinity protects not only against oxidation but also against acidic corrosion, galvanic corrosion and salt water corrosion.
