From the Break-Free website:
When the United States Military issued PD-48, a purchase description of properties for a single, multi-purpose product to maintain their weaponry, it became known as the “impossible specification” because of its severe requirements. The first product to meet the challenge – Break-Free CLP.
Break-Free’s flagship product, CLP is a unique formulation of synthetic oils and individual proprietary ingredients which synergize in combination to do three important tasks simultaneously: Effectively Clean, Lubricate and Protect metal. After years of rigorous testing, CLP actually exceeded the Military’s requirements and was approved as a product to meet MIL-L-63460, a new specification. Break-Free CLP is now recognized around the world as the standard by which maximum metal performance and protection is ensured.
That’s a lot of hype, but it seems to me that it’d be with trying out — especially when you consider that street pricing starts around $8 for the 12-ounce aerosol version.
It’s also available in pump-spray bottles (around $14) and small liquid bottle dispensers (around $6). I wonder if any local places carry it…
