G96 Products’ New Bio-Based Synthetic Gun Oil Triggers U.S. Army Approval

Posted on Saturday, December 17, 2016

G96 Bio CLP Gun OilPATERSON, N.J., Oct. 17, 2016 — G96 Products Inc., a leading supplier of gun lubricants and cleaning products, announces it has received U.S. Army certification for its new Bio-CLP Synthetic Gun Oil, opening the door for its use by America’s soldiers. Bio-CLP is the first bio-based gun oil from a gun products supplier to earn the Army’s stamp of approval.
Firearm products need to be at least 49 percent comprised of renewable resources to be recognized by the USDA’s BioPreferred® program as bio-based. G96 Products’ Bio-CLP Gun Oil was lab-tested to 51 percent bio-based content. As such, it exceeded the Army’s requirements to receive Military Specification MIL-PRF 63460E(4): Cleaner, Lubricant and Preservative for Weapons and Weapon Systems.

“We’re obviously very pleased to receive this designation, but we’re even more satisfied that our product will be used by our troops in the field, and possibly help save their lives,” says G96 Products President and CEO Alan Goldman. “This highlights our commitment to both providing gun owners with the very best lubricants and cleaning supplies available today, and ensuring the well-being of the environment.”

According to the acceptance letter from the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command, G96 Products’ Bio-CLP Gun Oil performed “equal to or better than the control CLP on an M249 weapon on all tests,” which included exposure to salt spray, extreme cold and very fine dust. The Bio-CLP Gun Oil experienced zero stoppages at a rate of fire exceeding 650 rounds/minute, against a criterion of no more than five stoppages.

G96 Products’ Bio-CLP Gun Oil, which also contains no VOCs (volatile organic
compounds), will soon be available online at www.G96.com and at select sporting goods
and gun stores.

G96 Products Inc. is one of the most trusted names in gun lubricants and cleaning
products. Used by shooters around the world, including many law enforcement agencies,
G96 continually strives to live up to its reputation for providing world-class products for
firearms. For more information, call 973-684-4050 or visit www.G96.com.

For Rapid Fire Weapons, G96 Delivers New Grease that Won’t Leave You in a Jam

Posted on Sunday, October 23, 2016

PATERSON, N.J. — G96 Products Inc., a leading supplier of gun lubricants and cleaning products, has introduced a new grease for rapid-fire weapons where smooth, glitch free operation can mean the difference between life and death. The new RFG (Rapid Fire Gun) Grease uses nano-synthetics to increase lubricity, even in extreme temperatures.
RFG Grease, available in .42 fluid ounce (13cc) syringes, will maintain its integrity from –80 up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Unlike some brands’ gun grease, RFG Grease won’t “bleed out” oil during long-term storage.

While RFG Grease delivers superior performance for all types of firearms, it earns its stripes in rapid-firing weapons. Reduced friction is essential for efficient, reliable operation. Along with its ability to protect against corrosion, RFG Grease will extend the life of any firearm. It is also safe for use on polymer weapons.

“We’re confident that this is the best grease for automatic and semi-automatic weapons on the market,” says Alan Goldman, president and CEO of G96 Products.
RFG Grease is 85 percent biodegradable.

G96 Products Inc. is one of the most trusted names in gun lubricants and cleaning products.

G96 successfully passes qualification testing by the U.S. Army – ARDEC.

Posted on Thursday, July 23, 2009

ARDEC, an engineering and standardization branch of the U.S. Army, recently tested CLP in a salt-fog environment. In the letter, the U.S. Army admits to limiting their testing due to the extremely corrosive nature of this specific test G96 passes with flying colors. This is what Mark Napolitano, Manager of the ARDEC Standardization branch, had to say:

“[…] but the weapon protected by your product had little or nor evidence of corrosion in the receiver area, on the bolt or on the rails or spring assembly. Your product successfully passed this test with no stoppages in the 200 rounds fired.”

G96 Gun Blue Crème featured in GUNS Magazine

Posted on Monday, September 1, 2008

An excerpt from the article:

Refinishing this gun would be horrific, but the blue is heavily worn on  the front end and toning it down would improve its appearance considerably. G96 Gun Blue Creme has the perfect properties for this job by giving a slightly matte finish matching what’s left of the original Browning’s. I’ve used it successfully to touch up rust-blued guns, too. As can be seen by the two photos, the holster wear is diminished — but not entirely gone, just the effect I wanted to achieve.
