I think that most people that say this has no corrosion resistance or that it does not work properly are just to lazy to heat the metal up apply it the way the directions say. I'm not a fan boy I just can't stand hate on a product I've never had a problem with. I'll probably try Slip ewl on my next build in my quest to find the best lube.

*******UPDATE*****
Froglube customer support emailed me told that the maximum operating temp before it starts to burn off is 700F and they have had it running successfully below 0F and third parties have tested it at 40 below.

Some of you complained froglube fans can't provide facts about the operating  temps.
Froglube info sheet.

Update fixed link.

Frog lube doesn't actually "soak" into the metal. It just looks like it does. I believe Frog Lube is a solid at room temperature, and the heating just helps it spread thoroughly on the surface. Interesting video.

Not bad. Maybe I should frog lube the shit out of my wife's rotors and see how good it works.

I don't hate Frog Lube.  I use MPro7 because I've been really pleased with the job it does.  

But I have to admit that I've always been intrigued by the Mobil 1 idea.

I work in a metal fabrication shop, trust me metal has pores and will absorb material that's on it. Try tig welding a piece of aluminum thats been exposed to the elements for a long period of time. Any way when you heat metal  it expands and the pores open up more. When you put FL on hot metal it liquefies allowing it to be absorbed into the warm metal easier. I had my BCG so hot that after the 30 min wait before you wipe of the excess FL There was no excess on my BCG.

The guy in the video did a test with mpro7 it did almost as good as froglube.

I initially used froglube because I couldn't stand the smell of CLP once it got hot.  After using it heavily for about a year now, I am blown away how well it works.

Does Frog lube work if you don't heat up the metal?



I hope so, because I've been using it like that a few years

I see you live in Florida. Try using that waxy frog lube when it's -10F out.
Link Posted: 1/25/2014 11:58:10 AM EDT
I've had really good luck with froglube. It's given some of my rifles the slickest action they've ever had. As long as some is applied to the barrel below the gas plug on my ACR, the build up that comes from shooting is just wiped away.  I've had the same experience with gunk on my AR BCG and bolts.

There's some other stuff that has fire in the name that is like to try. I can't remember the name atm.  I tried Mobil 1 and didn't care for it. I tried high temp lithium grease once as an experiment and it worked better than the Mobile 1 but was still sort of crappy.
Link Posted: 1/25/2014 11:58:27 AM EDT
So what's the mean rounds between failures for frog lube compared to mobile one? CLP?

I ran into this at an Appleseed shoot. Had to switch to CLP. I've yet to find a universal lube that excelled at all reasonable temps. They seem to either do warm weather well but not low temps or work OK at most temps.
Link Posted: 1/25/2014 12:03:03 PM EDT
I really like Froglube and cleaning inside.



I think people have been dunking their guns in it and running out in 2 degree weather and wonder why their guns jam. I could do the same thing with lithium grease.

There are plenty of excellent lubes without the song and dance involved in application and that won't grow mold inside your gun.
Link Posted: 1/25/2014 12:10:06 PM EDT
Hmm, I might have given Frog Lube a try, if my BCG wasn't NiB coated. I technically do not have to use any lubricant at all, but I have always used Mobil 1 and it's worked very well.

I have never heard the reason why the military likes to use CLP over other wet lubricants. (synthetic engine oil etc)

It fucking evaporates.

 



My old can (before I ran out ) used to stay on and kept wet for weeks, months. I bought a new can its much more watery, doesn't stay, and evaporates.

When working with sealers, densifiers, and color on concrete, yes. We can on site and lab prove the chems working together properly on a molecular level. But concrete is porous and will suck up oil, water, and our polished finishes products. Unsure with steel and lube.

I first tried Hoppes #9, which stank to high heaven. Then Breakfree CLP, which was better. Smelled a friend's Froglube. Kind of minty. Much better than the other.two.

MP7Pro and Froglube are my favorite gun chemicals because they are non offensive to my sense of smell.  I can't stand perfumes and petroleums.
Link Posted: 1/25/2014 12:31:51 PM EDT
I wasn't sniffing it! I was wondering about the smell since so many people have commented on it, and someone had suggested I try FL.

I swear, GD...

I did a thread on this in the Glock Forum... I like the stuff, and I think it smells great!

My experience so far is that it works as advertised... but the main thing I like about it is that on a CCW pistol it doesn't collect lint and dust and won't migrate to the end of the barrel and eventually end up on your clothing... pretty neat stuff IMO

This. A rep gave our team commander a bunch of samples of Frog Lube. We used it, it worked, wasn't the end all be all. I too have wondered about the Mobil 1 stuff.

This.

 
Yeager always seems like he's needing to take a hit.




But I've been using Frog Lube for about 9 months. In 105 degree heat down to 19 degrees. Never a problem

Run it in a AR, Glock 19 and a XDs. All 3 seemed to like it.




I've started running it on my bolt guns and have only noticed a slight difference. Nothing to write home about there.
