Abstract : Recent Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandates stipulate that products procured for Department of Defense utilization by the Defense Supply Center Richmond (DSCR) will be free of toxic and hazardous components. As a result of these mandates, studies were begun on MIL-C-372C (Cleaning Compound, Solvent for Bore of Small Arms and Automatic Aircraft Weapons). This work was conducted as part of DSCR's Hazardous Materials Minimization Program. This report summarizes the findings for replacement and field evaluation of candidate replacements.
