M.P. is one of the most versatile products in the AMSOIL arsenal.
M.P. Metal Protectant was first introduced in the fall of 1978. At
that time it was billed as “The Product for Everyone.” The
billing remains true. By digging into the pores of metal surfaces
and forming a dry, lubricating, water-resisting film over the
applied area, M.P. accomplishes four important tasks: lubrication,
water displacement, corrosion protection and penetration. It
accomplishes all four with remarkable effectiveness. That
combination makes it good for countless applications, some
obvious, others not.
heard about the obvious uses before: lubricating gun mechanisms
and protecting them from moisture, protecting electrical systems
from corrosion (both salt-water and fresh-water corrosion),
working on boat engines, fixing squeaking doors and unsticking
bolts and mechanical parts frozen up by rust and corrosion.
bulk of the list, however, is comprised of less obvious uses that
may surprise some people.
Spray M.P. on shovels to keep snow from sticking to them.
Spray M.P. on the rollers of chairs to help them move quieter and
Apply M.P. to adjustable camera tripods so they’ll move smoothly
Apply M.P. to car door locks to prevent winter freeze-up or to
de-ice frozen locks.
Use M.P. in stalled cars with wet distributors. Its water
displacement properties will help dry them out.
Spray M.P. on lug nuts to keep them from rusting and freezing up.
Apply M.P. to the lockout hubs on four-wheel-drive vehicles. Many
4x4 owners don’t change the lockout hub position for long
periods of time. M.P. can help keep them loose.
Use M.P. to lubricate office equipment.
Apply M.P. to the underside of lawnmowers to keep grass from
Use M.P. to protect cables that are exposed to the weather.
