One of the most important things a person can do with their firearm Colt or any other is to properly maintain it. This will not only allow it to function properly but it will also preserve the firearm over time. Whether cleaning, lubricating or protecting your firearm you will be using chemicals that may be harmful to you either by themselves or when mixed with others. This means that not all cleaning solutions can be mixed with some of the lubricating oils or topical agents. Not all lubricating oils can be readily mixed with every protecting agent. Therefore you must know what you are using. Below are MSDS( Materials Safety Data Sheets) for many of the common products used today. The MSDS forms are used by medical personnel when someone is exposed to a solution and has a reaction to it. These MSDS sheets contain a list of the active and inactive ingredients in the product. From a medical standpoint what the exposure is will dictate what the treatment is. When cleaning-lubricating-protecting your firearm you will want to know what you are applying, what you can mix and not mix and what you might be exposing yourself too when you use these products.
Note Well- this is not intended to be a complete list. Furthermore it is what was available on the internet as of mid-2013. Products change frequently so the posted sheets here will likely become outdated at some point. It is the readers responsibility to confirm the actual product contents. Providing these copies here is NOT intended for use in a medical exposure situation. The presentation here is to allow the reader to compare products and to know what chemicals may be present in the products being used.
