Save your vehicle by using Salt
OffBoat & 4x4
& 4X4 WASH
Taking your 4x4 off road or on the beach is a great Australian
pastime. The only big job to do once the holiday is over is 4wd
maintenance.Boat & 4x4 Wash has been
used for years by 4x4 owners and it is an excellent 4x4 accessory for removing soil
and corrosion after an off road adventure. It is safe on your paint work yet extremely effective on
the underside to remove corrosive soil and salt buildup. Boat & 4x4
Wash replaces other 4wd accessories for corrosion control and can be
used every week in place of your normal car wash. The metal protectants and wax in the formula look
after all the surfaces keeping the paint and underbody rust free.

We found these multi-grips down the paddock lying in the grass. I dropped
them in bucket of SX50 solution for 24 hours. When I got them out they did not look
much different until I wiped them down with a rag. All the
rust came off onto the rag and I had a clean almost new set of grips again.
The results after an overnight soak in B50 solution. Try doing that with the
other products. Saltoff products do so much more.
First use was filling the engine’s cooling system with a 30% SX50 solution and leaving it to soak for a
week. At the end of that week the brown colouration of the initial flushed discharge clearly showed something
had changed. During a 30min run at the mooring at varying revs the engine operated as expected, with no unusual
signs or sounds and the wet exhaust discharge quickly returned to its expected colour. The operating
temperature seemed cooler for the time but the run was too short to gauge any real change.
The sequence of draining, refilling the cooling system with the SX50 mixture and leaving it for the week was
repeated for a further 3 weeks. A similar coloured discharge occurred after each end-of- week flushing. After
the 3rd week (4th flush) I noticed small white fragments were flushed out – yes! good to see! A check of the
head cooling space showed it to be clean and the visible pores were open. The head bolt tensions were also
checked and found to be ok. I have since taken the yacht for an extended run and found the operating
temperature, particularly around the cylinder head, to be thankfully much cooler. I’m confident SaltOff has
removed the cause of the engine’s overheating.
Out of this whole experience, I’ll now be using SaltOff as a regular maintenance agent. SX50 has provided a
very effective solution to resolve what could have turned into a major engine problem to fix. Roll on the
warmer sailing weather!

Steve Mackie Pro Fisherman: “You won’t believe it! I know I didn’t. My old reel had years of salt build up
and corrosion and is now spotless after one overnight soak in the SX50 solution. It’s the best thing I’ve seen
to stop salt corrosion.”
The photo's below say it all!!!

use, effective and safeon
all surfaces which gives you the opportunity
to enjoy your time on the water with your
friends and family. When you get home you follow the simple instructions for removing salt
andsalt corrosion from your marine gear and your equipment will becorrosion free and ready for
your next trip. Getting thesalt

simple and by using SX50 on a regular basis you not only stop corrosion, you reduce
maintenance costs and have a reliable vessel that is safe for those outings with
family and friends.
Highly engineered fishing reels require much more attention than many of the old
alvey reels of years gone by. With regular corrosion maintenance after use you
will not only stop salt damage on the reels surfaces but help reduce line damage
caused by salt crystals. Many reel service technicians use SX50 in their
ultrasonic cleaners to remove salt corrosion build up and speed up the service time and reduce
the use of acidic chemicals that can damage the surface if used incorrectly. Read some of the
testimonials on reels where once thought lost to corrosion have been saved by SX50
From Navy ships to your aluminium runabout you only need one product
to wash and remove the salt buildup in one easy process. You use Buster50 the same as any boat
wash with the one big difference is our specially formulated product cleans, removes
harmful salt, adds two metal protectors and a non oil based wax to the surface in one
step. Many boat owners now realise that keeping your boat longer without having to spend large
sums of money of corrosion control is as simple as replacing their boat wash for
Jetski maintenance is an important part of keeping your Jetski in a reliable condition. One
jetski accessory which should be part of your maintenance program is SX50 and B50. The SX50 is
ideal to get the salt away from your cooling surfaces in your engine and jet unit and don't forget
your trailer. The B50 you can use instead of a boat wash on the jetski and you can also use SX50 as
a bath to treat your wetsuit, boots, gloves and lifejacket.
The biggest enemy SCUBA equipment has is salt corrosion
buildup. BCD Inflator mechanisms and tank valve seem to suffer a lot of damage at the
hands of salt. Using a bath of SX50 removes the salt to stop any surface damage and keep
your life support equipment functioning at its best between services. Many SCUBA
Equipment manufacturers are recommending during SCUBA service to
use our SX50 as the cleaning solution for SCUBA Equipment service. By using
SX50 after every diving trip on all your equipment you reduce the risk of failure and
ruining a great day out.
Exploration for minerals is hard on equipment. Many of the environments that the gear
is required to operate in has harsh corrosive salts and minerals. Mining services are always on
the lookout for safe biodegradable products to use on their plant to reduce corrosion and lower
mining maintenance and running costs. Both SX50 and Buster50 have been found very effective in
mining, industrial and military applications. Both corrosion products are available in bulk
quantities meaning mining service operations can treat and clean millions of dollars worth of
plant and equipment quickly with lowered mining maintenance costs. Even if clean water is not
available in remote locations salty water can be used with these products with the same great
Friends of mine found a rod and reel wedged in the rocks at Shoal Bay near Darwin and
challenged me to show how good SX50 is, we soaked the reel for 48 hrs then disassembled and cleaned
it with just a brush and cloth in fresh water.
The spool was non-existent due to corrosion so we replace it and both bearings, That’s All! No
polishing, scrubbing or buffing, just wiping to remove the barnacles, brushing the mud out from the
gears etc. rinsing and re-oiling! It is still being used each weekend and is working fine.
Corrosion Control by Salt Off if you value your boat and fishing gear you should be using
SX50 is safe to use in your engines raw water cooling system and will not harm the
environment. Laboratory and field tested SX50 is proven to remove harmful salt deposits effectively
and leaves our exclusive metal protectors on the surface to coat your cooling system between
Cooling System: During the normal operation of your engine salt deposits buildup. If these deposits
are not removed the engines ability to run at the right temperature is affected and over time can
damage your engine. This is caused by reduced water flow and ineffective heat exchange. SX50 will
not harm impellers, gaskets or seals.
Corrosion: We all know how corrosive salt is and how quickly it can damage metal surfaces. Your
engine cooling system is no different. Salt left in cooling galleries will eventually attack
surfaces and corrode through the thin gallery walls causing major damage and repair costs.
The images illustrate the different flushing options available in many outboard engine cooling
Image1: Shows the traditional flushing through the leg with a set of
twin entry flushing muffs. The hose is coupled to our flushing reservoir then a short length of
hose onto the muff. A good seal on the muffs is an advantage to reduce SX50 solution lose to
maintain the correct dosage.
Image 2: Under the cowling there is a flexible hose which is factory
plumbed into the cooling system which allows you to fit your flushing system hose to it then on to
the reservoir and fit the garden hose to the other side.
Image 3: You will find in most cases a 3/4 inch BSP plug just below the
cowling cover which you remove and replace with a male snap on garden fitting. You attach the
reservoir hose to that fitting, connect the garden hose to the other side of the reservoir and
start the flushing cycle.
All these method will achieve a good result whereby your cooling system will be flushed out with
SX50 solution to remove corrosive salt and treat with protectants.
