Thread: Breakfree CLP shelf life.

    Breakfree CLP shelf life.

    Hi guys, I have come across a 3/4 full bottle of breakfree CLP that I purchased as a teenager in the early eighties, so it would be at least 30 years old. I used to use it at the time on my air rifles. I was wondering if Breakfree has a usable shelf life. It contains PTFE particles in suspension and needs a good shake before use but I wonder if its effectiveness diminishes with time. As far as I recall this stuff used to be one of the best products on the market at the time.

    I have many other modern cleaning and lubricating oils but just wondered if this oil would still be effective for use on shotguns and firearms.

    Your views would be appreciated.

    I'm still using a bottle of CLP that is at least fifteen years old, I only use one or two drops at a time. It still seems to do the job. I have some Youngs '303' that must be over twenty five years old!
