Military Small Arms – MIL_PRF_32033

Shooters and outdoorsmen have problems unique to their particular sport. Firearms encounter explosive heat, grit, sand, corrosion, unburned powder residue, primer residue, carbon, minute metal fragments, and moisture as a routine part of normal use. Firearms also need to have long-term protection from rust and corrosion, as well as adequate lubrication.

With that set of problems in mind SharpShoot_R Precision began a search for a special purpose lubricant that meets the specific needs of the shooting public.

How it works:

Maxx ™ is a cutting edge product. It contains a patented particulant contained in no other commercial lubricants. This use of this particulant is protected by a patent. One of the smallest particulants used in lubricants is molybdenum. The particulant in molybdenum is approximately 2 microns in diameter. Maxx™ contains a patented particulant that is spherical in structure, and is less than 1/20 th of a micron in diameter. The minute size of this particulant greatly decreases friction and drag by reducing greatly the build_up of heat. It puts an ultra_thin layer of spherical particulant and a high heat tolerant lubricant between metal parts. The small diameter of this particulant allows Maxx™ to penetrate in to the terrain of metal surfaces, which are less than 1/20 th of a micron deep. This particulant further carries with it a unique blend of synthetic non_petroleum low drag lubricant and high lubricity natural oils that sets up a boundary shield of lubrication.

Properties:

The characteristics of this natural/synthetic blend lubricant are quite unique, in that they have an operating range of +600º F down to _70º F.   Being a synthetic base lubricant, Maxx™ is non_gumming, and non_shellacing over any length of time. It does not change in viscosity or color, over time. Maxx™ contains no teflon or PTFE of any kind. These products have proven themselves to be gumming agents a which build up, and actually prevent lubrication to take place.

TECHNICAL BULLETIN:

How to use Maxx ™:

Maxx™ works in a truly unique manner. It is applied in two or three applications after a thorough degreasing solvent is used. It is necessary to remove all evidence of other lubricants to make Maxx™ totally effective. Apply Maxx™ to a clean firearm and allow the volatiles to vaporize for 5 minutes or so. Apply a second application and repeat the drying procedure. This allows Maxx™ to build a coating over the metal of around 20 to 25 microns in thickness. It is this film that provides maximum lubrication while cutting friction to an absolute minimum. Maxx™ has proven itself superior in all the testing done by the U.S. Military and has been adopted as the lubricant for all small arms both semi-automatic and fully automatic.

Maxx™ has a neutral di-electric constant which allows the product to lubricate without attracting dirt and grit. Most lubricants are either positive or negative charged which is an attractant to dust particles. The neutral di-electric constant properties also allow Maxx™ to be used in any application where electric polarity is a concern.

Maxx™ is also a boon to users because if it’s moisture displacing qualities. Maxx™ will force moisture out of any metal or electrical parts and provide both lubrication and corrosion protection.

Maxx™ proved itself a superior anti-corrosion product in the testing done by the U.S. Military. A film of Maxx™ was put on metal parts to be tested, then a 5% solution of salt spray coated the test parts and the temperature was raised to 95 degrees. Maxx™ coated parts went for over 1000 hours with no rust or corrosion.

Maxx™ is available in 2 convenient sizes a 14 ounce can and a 8 ounce bottle.

Maxx™ MAX-140  suggested retail price for the 14 ounce can

Maxx™ MAX-008 suggested retail price for the 8 ounce can

Department’s System Command. Packaging data retrieval is available from the managing Military

Department’s or Defense Agency’s automated packaging files, CD-ROM products, or by

contacting the responsible packaging activity.

6. NOTES

(This section contains information of a general or explanatory nature which may be

helpful, but is not mandatory.)

6.1 Intended use. The lubricating oil, general purpose, preservative, is intended for

lubrication and protecting against corrosion of certain small arms and automatic weapons and

whenever a general purpose, water-displacing, low-temperature lubricating oil is required. This

oil becomes very viscous at low temperatures so that its use at temperatures below -40°C is

limited by a number of machine design factors and should be proved for any specific item

application by test before adoption. The availability of this material in gas-pressurized containers

will prove to be beneficial for use in areas difficult to preserve by existing procedures. This

preservative oil should not be used to protect the fuel system and combustion chamber of engines

which are preserved in accordance with standard procedures. This material contains a carboxylic

acid which could react with certain metals present in the fuel system, forming soaps which could

contribute to fuel filter plugging.

6.2 Acquisition requirements. Acquisition documents must specify the following:

a. Title, number, and date of this specification.

b. Issue of DoDISS to be cited in the solicitation, and if required, the specific issue of

individual documents referenced (see 2.2.1 and 2.3).

c. Location of verification testing (see 4.1).

d. Packaging requirements (see 5.1).

6.3 Qualification. With respect to products requiring qualification, awards will be made

only for products which are, at the time of award of contract, qualified for inclusion in Qualified

Products List QPL No. 800 whether or not such products have actually been so listed by that

date. The attention of the contractors is called to these requirements, and manufacturers are

urged to arrange to have the products that they propose to offer to the Federal Government tested

for qualification in order that they may be eligible to be awarded contracts or purchase orders for

the products covered by this specification. Information pertaining to qualification of products

may be obtained from: Department of the Army, U.S. Tank-automotive and Armaments

Command, F & L Technology Team, ATTN: AMSTA-TR-D/210, Warren, Michigan

48397-5000.

MIL-PRF-32033

6.4 Definitions.

6.4.1 Film characteristics. A drying process progresses through three stages identified as

gummy, tacky, and hard. These are defined as follows:

a. Gummy – First evidence of becoming viscous.

b. Tacky – Advanced stage of drying, becoming sticky.

c. Hard – A completely dry-to-touch film.

6.5 International standardization. Certain provisions of this specification are the subject

of international standardization agreements (NATO STANAGs 1135 and 7094). When

amendment, revision, or cancellation of this specification is proposed which would affect or

violate the international agreement concerned, the preparing activity will take appropriate

reconciliation action through international standardization channels, including departmental

standardization offices, as required.

6.6 Waste disposal instructions.

6.6.1 Recovery (RC). The very first step in disposal is to coordinate with Defense

Property Disposal Office (DPDO) for turn-in for disposal of any excess items of supply. Defense

Disposal Manual DOD 4160.21-M (with pertinent supplements/messages) describes the

requirements for such turn-ins. Variations exist whether the DPDO accepts physical custody of

the disposal turn-in. The potential for DPDO acceptance and disposal processing is enhanced by

comprehensive identification. If the DPDO does not accept the item for disposal (accountability)

or returns the item to the generator for disposal, the manufacturer/supplier should be contacted

for chemical recovery before proceeding with ultimate disposal management procedures.

DISCLAIMER

THE RECOMMENDED DISPOSAL INSTRUCTION IS FORMULATED FOR USE BY

ELEMENTS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE. THE UNITED STATES OF

AMERICA IN NO MANNER WHATSOEVER EXPRESSLY OR IMPLIEDLY

WARRANTS, STATES, OR INTENDS SAID INSTRUCTION TO HAVE ANY

APPLICATION, USE, OR VIABILITY BY OR TO ANY PERSON OR PERSONS

OUTSIDE THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE NOR ANY PERSON OR PERSONS

CONTRACTING WITH ANY INSTRUMENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

AND DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY FOR SUCH USE. ANY PERSON UTILIZING THIS

INSTRUCTION WHO IS NOT A MILITARY OR CIVILIAN EMPLOYEE OF THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA SHOULD SEEK COMPETENT PROFESSIONAL

ADVICE TO VERIFY AND ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE SUITABILITY OF

THIS INSTRUCTION TO THEIR PARTICULAR SITUATION REGARDLESS OF

SIMILARITY TO A CORRESPONDING DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE OR OTHER

GOVERNMENT SITUATION.

6.7 Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS). Contracting officers will identify those

activities requiring copies of MSDS’s prepared in accordance with FED-STD-313. The pertinent

Government mailing addresses for submission of data are listed in FED-STD-313; and

29 CFR 1910.1200 requires that the MSDS for each hazardous chemical used in an operation

must be readily available to personnel using the material. Contracting officers will identify the

activities requiring copies of the MSDS.

6.8 Panel preparation for oil in gas-pressurized cans. Historically, the following

procedure has been found to provide the best results for humidity cabinet testing of oil supplied in

gas-pressurized cans (see 3.3.2 and 4.2.2.2):

Shake a gas-pressurized can of oil vigorously for 30 seconds. Set the cleaned panels at an

angle of 15° from vertical. Hold the pressurized can vertically at a distance of 25 to 30

centimeters from the panel. With the valve open, move the can to direct the spray from

one edge of the panel to the other. Make sufficient passes to assure a continuous coating.

After five minutes examine the coating to determine if it is smooth and unbroken. If the

coating shows evidence of gas entrapment, prepare another panel. Drain the panels for 2

hours and submit them to the test specified in ASTM D1748.

6.9 QPL tolerances. The oils supplied under contract should have the same formulation

as when qualified. The finished oil properties should fall within permissible tolerances as listed in

table II. After the application of tolerances, the values of the properties of the oil should not

exceed the maximum nor fall below the minimum requirements specified herein.

TABLE II. QPL tolerances.
