Amsoil Silicone Spray Reviews

Perfect for weatherstripping
By  JONATHAN,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Western PA  on  February 27, 2023

I had a window sticking on my Jetta. So I was ready to order a new window regulator but I thought I would try this first. I sprayed the whole window channel in the weatherstripping and no more problems. Also thought I would mention that this spray does not streak the window either. Fantastic product.

I mainly use this product on my Yamaha outboard engines to protect all electrical wiring and connectors. Definitely protects from saltwater intrusion.

This product, as well as ALL AmsOil products I have used for last 30+ years, is excellent for Performance and Reliability. This product does NOT attract dust like WD40
(Editor note: If you want a replacement for WD40, that would be the Amsoil Metal Protector AMP)

I’ve been using this spray for a while already, I use it in a whole lot of applications, from keeping the key locks off the fuel tanks of my semi in good shape and clean from debris from the road and weather, to keep the leather sit on good shape afther sitting on it for long hours at a time. Great product and also doesn’t bring the dust afther being applied like dw40 does.
This a new product to me.
