as pointed out by someone else, this blaster stuff is not just oil, it
contains a reducing agent. which is fine short term, but longer term,
it creates a corrosion problem.
/way/ too much of a generalization - it depends on /what/ plastic. the
gear drive for the speedo in your integra is a "plastic" for example,
one that's immersed in oil for all its working life.
[and "plastic" is a horribly imprecise word with two different meanings.
what you really mean is "polymer", preferably stating which kind, like
nylon, h.d.p.e, p.m.m.a, etc.]
it depends /what/ oil, and how long is the exposure. and not all paints
are the same either.
technical knowledge may or may not be gained from bothering to read
sure. and they can make any claim they want - doesn't mean it's factual
or accurate if nobody's taken the time and effort to officially contest
you can test yourself easily enough. i noticed this problem when i used
it on a half shaft locknut and left it standing for a couple of months.
the area sprayed, with the runoff onto the brake disk, was rusted to
blazes. the rest of the disk/hub was the same as it had been before.
other "mistaken" labeling examples are out there. google "simple green"
and "stress corrosion cracking", especially with regard to bike chain.
then compare that with their label claims.
Not mentioned in the any of the posts... Liquid Wrench, an oldie and
very effective. Just give it a little time.
Another hint, when installing new bolts, make sure that they are just
long enough to do the job and coat the threads with some chassis/wheel
Keep it simple...
