MIL-COMM Product Safety

MIL-COMM’s extreme performance, military-grade, lubricants have been used globally since 1988 with no health issues or safety incidents reported and no evidence of harm to the environment. MIL-COMM’s TW25B® synthetic lubricant and its derivative formulations meet all current worldwide health-safety regulatory requirements.

One component of our lubricant products is “PTFE” (Polytetrafluoroethylene) in micro-particle form. There is reporting that PTFE used at extreme high temperature can emit toxic HF gas and toxic residue. MIL-COMM’s unique formulations are engineered to prevent HF issues. As documented to the satisfaction of the U.S. Air Force in independent laboratory testing, TW25B® and its derivatives pose no danger of PTFE outgassing or residue at any temperature. Further, the U.S. chemical industry has acted to make PTFE more environmentally friendly by discontinuing the use of a material known as PFOA in the manufacture of PTFE.

FURTHER SAFETY TESTING: In recent independent laboratory toxicity testing TW25B® was found to cause only minimal eye and skin irritation if skin or eyes were directly exposed to the lubricant. When ingested, no negative reaction was found. If swallowed in large amounts – which has never been known to occur – such ingesting would likely cause nausea, diarrhea and vomiting.

TW25B® and its derivative formulations contain a small percentage of Phosphoric Acid, tris(methylphenyl) esters (“TCP”) that in pure form — at 100% concentration — is suspected in animal studies of damaging fertility or gestation if swallowed in large amounts for an extended length of time.

However, as an ingredient in grease or oil lubricants, oral exposure is very unlikely. There is no data to indicate that TCP poses a reproductive hazard to humans. In pure form (at 100% concentration) TCP is toxic to aquatic life if dispersed in large quantities.

Under California Proposition 65, TW25B® does not contain any chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.

Hazard exposure is similar to or less than many household products, including bleach, detergents, paints and other items in common daily use.
