PATERSON, N.J., Nov. 16, 2009 --[ASDWire]-- G96, a leading supplier of gun lubricants and cleaning products, announces its Synthetic Gun Oil has been approved by the U.S. Army under Performance Specification: Lubricant, Cleaner And Preservative For Weapons And Weapons Systems, clearing the way for its use in its weapons into the 21st Century.
G96 Synthetic Gun Oil passed Military Specification (Mil Spec) PRF-63460E / NATO Code Number S-758, one of just three products to pass the rigid requirements, and the only one produced by a gun care chemical company. The Synthetic Gun Oil passed laboratory tests as well as live-firing tests. The results clear the way for the product to be used in a variety of automatic weapons, machine guns, and hand and shoulder weapons.
"This is the culmination of a long, three-year review process. While we're obviously thrilled to meet this Mil Spec, it only highlights our commitment to providing gun owners with the very best lubricants and cleaning supplies available today," says G96 President and CEO Alan Goldman. "It's especially satisfying that we are helping to support our dedicated soldiers in a small way."
According to the acceptance letter from the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command, G96 Synthetic Gun Oil "not only recorded excellent performance in both the cold temperature test and the salt-spray test with no Class 1 stoppages in either, but your best two weapons averaged only 4 stoppages in the dust test against the criteria of no more than 5, so we are pleased to qualify your current formulation."
G96 Synthetic Gun Oil, which is 85 percent biodegradable and contains no VOCs (volatile organic compounds), is available online at www.G96.com and at sporting goods and gun stores nationally.
