MIL-PRF-372E - Weapons Solvent Cleaning Compound Specification
We perform testing by military specification MIL-PRF-372, which covers a cleaner used to clean the bores of small arms and automatic aircraft weapons. This type of bore cleaner is used in removing primer salts and as a temporary preservative for metallic items. This bore cleaner is a highly penetrating mobile liquid and is intended for use in cleaning the bores of small arms and automatic aircraft weapons. The material provides a temporary rust-resistant coating for the cleaned surface.
