myogr81 - It's not that Griots didn't provide an MSDS to me, it's just that when I got it, it wasn't much help. There is a "Trade Secret" clause that allows a chemical manufacturer to withhold certain info about their formulation. They also can reference the hazardous materials in a general way that identifies the hazards, but prevents you from identifying the specific component of the mixture, IE., "Petroleum Distillates".

I always like to compare Griot's prices to similar items in the Eastwood catalog - now there's a company for gearheads, although they seem to be getting a bit ricey lately. Nine different colors for your brake calipers, give me a break!
