I'm thinking maybe some kind of teflon spray coating... them blades will never stop.

Got ya covered, 3M makes a marine wax that has PTEF in it and its some sort of teflon based coating, I think. One thing for sure is it repels darn near everthing, good stuff for its intended use.

Not essential to the real subject of shiny blades but just to mention:
PTFE is an abbreviation of chemical name poly-tetra-fluoro-ethylene
which is also known by it's brand name Teflon.
So it's basically the same thing..

Now running to wax and polish my bird

Smok,

[quote]PTFE is an abbreviation of chemical name poly-tetra-fluoro-ethylene
Looks like a couple of errors in my post, I thought it was a 3M product and its not actually a wax either. Turns out its a polish and is labeled under the Starbright name. Their trademark though is PTEF and not PTFE but it is the same stuff.

At the moment I'm using Meguiars car wax. Just did my blades and canopies on 2 of my heli's.
