Can be used sparingly, since the low surface tension lets the oil spread and get into tiny cracks and gaps. As an alcaline oil, Ballistol chemically neutralises acidic residue (such as from fingers) and forms a clear coating that prevents oxidisation. This maintains and preserves not just metal, but also wood and leather. Ballistol does not resinify (gunk things up or get sticky).


Ballistol has been in use for over 100 years, since being developed for the Imperial German army as a universal oil for maintaining weapons, equipment, treating wounds etc.

That same oil, made a century or more ago, would still perform the same today if decanted from the antique bottles.
