Bio Safe?
« on: August 06, 2016, 06:28:48 pm »
With more biodegradable maintenance products being added to the industry I thought I would take a moment to discuss a few things.

    Bio Safe?

    Agreed. For the relatively minuscule amount of lube I use on my weapons (compared to 5+ qts in my truck), I want it to stay put and make my weapon function better. Why does it need to be biodegradable, it's not like I'm just pouring it on the ground. It's a tiny amount applied to the contact points.

    I'm not saying you should use an M1A for home defense, but I'm also not saying you shouldn't.

    Oil, dino oil, IS biodegradable, and naturally occurring.   It just takes a very long time.  Also there are naturally occurring bacteria that eat Dino oil, I love the old Sinclair Oil ads, but again they are not quick. 

    I believe that a lot of this current "Bio Safe" advertising is just another example of the "Earth/Gia Religion" becoming mainstream.   If it does protect the mechanical object you are using it on, then it is less that worthless.  And the manufacturing/processing for replacements, is probably worse for the environment than what accidental spills would cause.
