Alpha CLP is an all natural non-gumming firearm cleaner, lubricant and protectant. Alpha CLP is certified by the United States Department of Agriculture to be over 99% bio-based, and is a USDA bio-preferred product. This vegetable-based product requires no heating, won’t cause gumming, and very little product is needed to be effective.
Vegetable oils do not react with carbon and will lift carbon off metal eliminating the need for solvents. But vegetable oils oxidize and many vegetable-based products cause gumming. That’s where Alpha CLP shines. It took roughly two years to figure out the gumming issue and what causes it. Alpha CLP can maintain its bio-based certification without compromising it’s all natural status, while delivering a product that will safely and effectively clean, lubricate and protect your firearms.
Alpha CLP takes very little to do the job. It is very likely this will be the last firearm care product you’ll ever purchase. If you plan on storing your firearm, it is recommended to remove any petroleum-based product before using Alpha CLP. If you shoot often, a couple of cleanings with Alpha CLP will remove the previous product. We believe once you try Alpha CLP it will be your first and only choice.
