    I have no skin in the game. I have a bottle of Fireclean somewhere, but I usually use Slip2000.

    Anyhow, that Fireclean response is a very long winded answer that addressed nothing. I'm more interested to see a lawsuit, if there is one coming down the pipe.

    Thanks; sometimes I don't see all new posts on the mobile viewer which I use 99.9% of the time


    I like Froglube because of the natural ingredients (it's food safe/edible....and so is fire clean apparently lol) and doesn't have all the "known to the state of California..." warnings.

    I'm sure someone is going to get sued.

    It's easy to launch a smear campaign without knowing all the facts behind it. Hell, we don't even know for sure if that graph is accurate and for all we know one little blip of a difference can mean the world - it's science after all, right?

    I have a bottle I got for free. It lubes up like CLP, I can clear with it and it stays lubed after long uses.

    I can only speak from personal experience, I watched a bottle of fireclean unfuck an SR25 that kept FTEject, fixed it up and it ran fine after...



    That's F2S applying some during a class -> http://www.vdmsr.com/2015/03/aar-dua...lting-feb.html

    As for the lav meme style photo - there is literally nothing I could care less about than his ramblings on something.

    Fireclean...is it just re-branded Crisco Vegetable oil? Video...

    I had to re-read the response just to make sure I was copying current info and not some lame company header introduction

    I use fireclean and like it, by no means am I fan boy of it nor do I really care if it is in fact just crisco. It works for me and I like that about it. That being said their response that was posted up above to me , like UW said, answered nothing. It was very similar to a politician dodging a question by answering it with smoke and mirrors and distraction. If it's similar to crisco then I have a huge bottle of it in the pantry

    Well, George Fennell has fired back at LAV:

    Which was later edited to:

    At this point, it's just a train wreck. A big, lubricant filled train. Full of lube. And wreck. And a former door-kicker and several lube-smiths.

    I'm not a chemist so I'm wondering if the spectral analysis proves nothing more than Fireclean is a vegetable based lipid? Maybe all this drama will drive the price down. If so I may start using it.

    Exactly. The graph wavelengths are fairly similar because all three are oils, however there are varying amounts of components in each oil. All those graphs show is that FireClean contains bio based oils. IR spectroscopy does not give you a qualitative analysis.

    Rapeseed oil
    Soybean oil
    Fireclean oil


    These 3 samples are what the graphs were from. Anyone who thinks Soybean oil = Rapeseed oil needs their head examined. So then asserting that since the graphs are similar, Fireclean must be "Crisco" is the height of stupidity.
