I don't apply it as a preventative. I only use it to retard the very few areas of filiform corrosion I have. In that case, I dab a small amount in and around the area, rub it in well with my finger and wipe away excess. I have used it when installing bolts which attach aluminum to steel, to, hopefully, slow any galvanic corrosion.

I just spray it on a rag and wipe the edges where corrosion has started. I do it when I get ready to travel in the spring, maybe once during the season and again when winterize.

I have so far only some filiform on the grab handle next to door entrance - pretty common - already sprayed - I've already sprayed the seams if the entire bet line with a thin small bead of the stuff - will do all hinges as they seem more likely as handle already did - have not decided if I will do prophylactic on seams - I probably will overkill and do it - but contemplating

For seems IF I do - I could spray on rag then wipe or less penetration that way?

Well I applied to all seams and such - wiped excess - then next day cleaned off the rest - but still some came streaming out when I drove to canopener - I'm thinking after this I will not pretreat - kind of a pain- messy etc - but still looked good for the rally - needs a wash bad now with this residual stuff plus from the tripClick image for larger version

Ok - so I used a couple standard autozone microfiber cloths originally to wipe down excess - then made the mistake of washing these 2 with my other 3 griots microfiber cloths - this stuff did not come out with the wash with large amount of detergent

Any idea what I can use on these towels now to dissolve this stuff

I bought a few more new towels to finish my trailer and cars today but would like to get my others back to square one

There is a "The Long, Long Honeymoon" YouTube video about filiform corrosion and Corrosion-X.

So-
You've seen the video?
No mention of cleaning the rag, but got me thinking about removing the Thor sticker...
I didn't quite understand- he said he was removing the Thor sticker because the glue caused filiform corrosion, but then he put another sticker in its place. Go figure.

Yeah - but pretreated with corrosionx may prevent? I think they are less concerned about those details it seems
