    1/2oz of super saturated salt water solution (212deg boiling + salt tell crystals start to form) placed on a tin circle (sanded down with 600grit to remove oxidation layer)

    As far as the meaning the reason why I chose a flat surface was actually one to see if it more emulsified or was really just a water displacement. If it emulisfied with the water it would have run off and not stayed on. If it was just a water displacement meaning it would have formed crusts, and looked like hoppes 9. As the water can still just float ontop.

    This post may not make much sense as Ive been up 18hrs and not going to bed for another 8hrs:o

    I think im going to have to redo the corrosion test, Slip 2000, MPro, and Hoppes 9 had more corrosion than the control

    But the ones with no corrosion were Weapon Shield, Eezox, FP10, and Breakfree

    Why redo it?

    I guess it is odd that they would have more than the control... but looking at how the product performed relative to each other that seems about right...

    Slip is more of a straight lubricant & #9 is a solvent, so I wouldn't really expect much in terms of corrosion protection from either. On the other hand the good performers all advertise "protection" as one of the key product benefits, so it makes sense they'd all perform well in this test.
