Breakthrough Battle Born Oil and Battle Born Grease

Breakthrough Clean (a subsidiary of the AvioTrade Group of companies, which specializes in the distribution of chemicals within the aerospace industry) has a couple of new products: Battle Born Oil and Battle Born Grease.

Breakthrough also has a cleaning solvent (Military-Grade Solvent) which is a non-water based distilled petroleum solvent which is pH neutral (which means it should be safe on your wood, plastics, polymers, cerakote and/or hydro-printing) and
has no odor, is non-staining, removes all fouling, while completely evaporating, leaving absolutely no residue behind

Battle Born Oil:

is a blend of the finest synthetic oils available and treated with the most effective extreme pressure, corrosion inhibitors, anti-oxidant, anti-foam, and anti-wear additives. This unique combination provides maximum firearm lubrication and protection in extreme environmental conditions. A bio-degradable multi-service lubricant and protectant for extended service under high and low temperatures conditions (from -90°F to 417°F).

Battle Born Grease:

represents some of the most advanced lubricant technology. It is a versatile, premium quality, synthetic grease fortified with Sub-Micron size PTFE. Blended completely with pure synthetic base oils, additives, and shear stable thickeners to provide maximum firearm protection in extremely high and low temperatures (from -75°F to 510°F)

Does anyone here have hands on with Breakthrough’s product line? I noticed that it is offered on one of the backer levels for the MS Clean Kickstarter

Phil Note:

I’ve been using Breakthrough solvent for several months now and it performs very well. Once it’s applied it takes a very short time to turn the carbon deposits into a liquid within the solvent. It wipes off easily and doesn’t require the user to brush it to break those deposits up.
I look forward to testing the other products soon.

    2 fluid ounces of oil for $9, 12 cubic centimeters of grease for $13. This lubricant better be made out of gluten free organic free range unicorn tears for that price.

    Dear gun community: stop buying this crap. You are buying commodity chemicals in shiny packaging at 1000% mark up.

      whoa whoa whoa but look at that packaging! It’s CLEARLY fancy!!!

    • sauerquint

      TW25B goes for twice that…

  • CrassyKnoll

    If not for the tins that packaging looks like stuff you would see at a hair salon.

    With prices to match.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Exactly my first thoughts when I saw the picture this morning.

    • Paul Mitchell approved.

  • Vitsaus

    Its like they hired their marketing department from a trendy Vodka company.

    Yea its pricey but this is just the Battle Born version. Just wait till they bring out the “Operator Kill Juice” version this fall.


  • Joe

    Great solvent and cleaner, never tried the grease & oil. Pricey but really good to clean.

  • RickH

    Isn’t every new lubricant basically aimed at the AR market? Yes it is.

  • SM

    Olfrid, is that you?

    • Matt Shermer

      Screw that noise, Greymane family for life!

    I have been using their solvent/oil/grease since I received samples at this Shot show. I don’t mind their solvent but I find myself favoring Slip Carbon Killer/Hoppes more often.

    Their oil seems to perform well, no complaints, I do like that it is clear.

    I am a big fan of their grease, the syringe applicator is very convenient and much cleaner/easier to apply compared to my automotive grease tin+q-tip methods. It is odorless as well.

    For the record, I am the gunsmith for a full auto rental range in Las Vegas, we go though thousands of rounds a day with minimal down time for cleaning. I would definitively recommend their product, but on that note, it doesn’t come out of my wallet.
