I see many references to CRC 2.26 as a tyre treatment from members in Oz and NZ and wondered whether this is the same product as WD40 in the UK market.
Can CRC 2.26 be obtained in UK?

If not, can someone advise the nearest equivilant available here?

Regards

I don't think 2.26 and WD40 are the same chemically although they are for sim. things maybe look for something for electrical
WD40
white spirit
paraffinic distillate, heavy, solvent- dewaxed (severe)
isoparaffins petroleum hydrotreated HFP
carbon dioxide

CRC2.26
PETROLEUM DISTILLATE(S) >60%
MINERAL OIL (SOLVENT REFINED) 10-30%
CORROSION INHIBITOR(S)<10%
DIPROPYLENE GLYCOL METHYL ETHER C7-H16-O3 34590-94-8

Thanks both for the replies.

I think that Ambersil is a linked company to CRC in the UK, has anyone any idea of the equivilant 2.26 UK product in the Ambersil range?

WD40 will do very much the same for the tyres, just takes marginally longer,this can be good as it makes the process easier to control!
