Other Unique Features & Uses

The most astounding feature of Ballistol is perhaps its universality. There are other protectants/lubricants in the market, but none of them has the same wide range of applications, in combination with other unique capabilities, as compared to Ballistol.

Ballistol can be used to clean, to preserve, to protect, to prevent corrosion, and maintain not only objects made out of metal but also wood, hard plastics, and even smooth leather. WARNING: Do not use on suede.

While most other brands are pH-neutral, i.e. have a pH around 7, Ballistol has a pH between 8 and 8.5. This is why Ballistol is capable of neutralizing mild acids and human hand sweat, which is of a slightly acidic nature.

Ballistol does not resinify. Most other lubricants are subject to relatively fast aging and oxidation. They harden in time – a process which is called “resinification.” The oil begins to thicken, becomes sticky, gluey, and finally turns into a hard resinous substance. By contrast, Ballistol contains a combination of anti-oxidants and medical oils, which together make it much less susceptible to the process of aging than other lubricants.
