How To Use Sea Foam Deep Creep Penetrating Lubricant
You’ve had it. That bolt is stuck, your car is never going to be repaired, so you may as well grab your title and head to the dealership to buy a new one. Just about every DIY mechanic has had this conversation in their own head at least once, if not a million times. However, before you throw it all away, you might want to try a can of Sea Foam Deep Creep. It may just save your sanity, not to mention your pocket book.
Deep Creep is made from highly-refined petroleum, features a low-odor, and is anti-corrosive. It’s VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) compliant in all 50 state, non-conductive, and is body shop safe. It dissipates water, blocking out the potential for rust to form. There are no detergents or chemicals in Deep Creep, so it is safe to use on metal, rubber, plastic, just about any surface. One of the most unique uses for Deep Creep is on the body of your car. You can use it to safely clean road tar from your vehicle’s bodywork without risking the paint.
Air tools deal with a lot of unique issues, specifically high-speeds, heavy loads, and lots of moisture-rich compressed air. Feed the inside of your air tools with some Deep Creep to keep the moving parts lubricated long after you service them.
Few things are more frustrating than trying to secure a project with a clamp only to have the clamp bind up. Keep your clamps working in tip-top shape with a blast of Deep Creep.
If you have a stubborn nut or bolt, and your attempts to break it free with lubrication are not working, try this method. Using a handheld propane torch, heat up the nut or bolt. It does not need to be red hot, just get it good and toasty.
Spray Sea Foam Deep Creep directly on the threads. Allow the fastener to cool. The heat pulls the penetrating lubricant deep into the threads, breaking up rust and surface tension so you can get the job done faster.
When summer is upon us, all of those yard tools and lawn equipment will soon be put back to work. Spray them down with a coat of Deep Creep to loosen up frozen hinges and wheels from their long winter’s nap.
You can find Sea Foam Deep Creep at your local NAPA Auto Parts Store, along with all of Sea Foam’s great products.
