I have seen at least two different formulations of Breakfree CLP since the mid 1990's.

Both the liquid and aerosol versions of Eezox contains Trichloroethylene (CAS NO: 79-016). Since the aerosol version atomizes a bit when it's sprayed it would theoretically be easier to inhale the Trichloroethylene. The liquid version that I use doesn't have a bad smell and I have no problems using it indoors.

Here is the second backyard non scientific rust I conducted using some popular products. If you missed the first one it's here.

The testing parameters are the same except I didn't use any aluminum test media this time. I sprayed these stripper clips with Atlantic ocean water once a day for seven days. It rained on three of these days and for over eight hours on one day. I have been really busy working some overtime so I took this photo on the tenth day after the experiment began.



1) Control: Metal clip rusted over and corrosion starting to form on brass insert.

2) Eezox: Metal clip had two very small freckles of rust (one was between the S&Y on ASSY stamped on it) that I was able to wipe off with my finger without pitting. There was some discoloration on the brass insert which were salt deposits.

3) Boeshield T-9: Nail heads were rusted over and there was a small amount of rust forming on the left side of the metal clip. The Brass insert had salt deposits which wiped away and the rust from the nail stained it's left side.

4) WD-40: Maybe those who say that this is a good rust preventative will look at this. It is rusted almost as bad as the control and I feel that WD-40 has no business on a firearm to begin with.

5) Pro-Shot 1 Step: This is marketed as an all in one CLP. There was heavy rusting on the stripper clip and the brass insert is starting to corrode.

6) Safariland Breakfree CLP. On my last test this did worse than the old style CLP so I retested it again. Same results as last time.

7) Muscle Products PL-10 grease: I tested this because some of you use a lithium complex grease and asked me to test one. There was a little rust starting to form on the top left of the stripper clip and on the nail heads. The discoloration on the brass insert just rubbed off with my finger.

Like the first test I conducted, Eezox is still the best performing product at keeping rust at bay.

Thanks for posting. It looks like Eezox is clearly the winner of your testing.

Just curious why you don't do one with regular hardware store Corrosion-X, not the Reel-X stuff.

Great testing, though. Keep it up!

Well because I have the ReelX on hand and I don't have regular CorrosionX. The only difference between the two is that ReelX has an EP additive that Corrosionx doesn't have. The inhibitor packages are the same on both the products per a conversation I had when I called the company.

One thing I forgot to mention is when I sprayed water on these, all the products except Eezox beaded up water. The water seemed to partially sheet off the Eezox treated metal.

Interesting.

Somehow I still think the way Reel-X and Corrosion-X behave in real life are different. I mean I trust that they have the same CI's, but somehow the AW comes into play.

Thanks again Buzzsaw!

Let me know if you are going to "test again". I have some products to send you for testing.

Including Corrosion X heavy duty, Corrosion X "max wax", Par-Al-Ketone, AV-30, AV-8 and more.

You could be right.

I'd be glad to do it ASAP. You have a PM.

What about WD-40 LTCI? It appears to be winning (beating Eezox) in other tests on the webbie.

If I do another test I could pick this up at Walmart and and try it.
