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

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.
