    I dont know if this is true or not. But years ago someone told me that it was originally designed for aviation applications .Something about the stealth bombers use a certain type of fuel that would literally soak through the wings and por-15 was formulated to prevent the fuel seapage. Kinda far fetched but who knows maybe that's why por wont declare the true ingredients.........

    Maybe it's because they don't want anyone to duplicate it...

    Redfrog is on the money. KFC doesn't actually list the "spices and herbs" that they use even though they form the ingredients, do they?/forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    Lots of companies do the same thing. Have you ever seen an actual description of the additives put into oil by different manufacturers?? What's REALLY in the oil you put into your truck???/forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    It has something to do with "trademark secrecy" or something like that. It's actually allowed to protect companies from being ripped off.

    I can't remember where you get it at, but you can get a form that you send to them and it has to list all of its chemical ingredients according to federal law.

    I think it was someone on the ORC forum that said something about it last fall.

    You can call the company and by law they must provide you with an MSDS (material safety data sheet) that lists all the ingredients, what to do in case of emergency, effects the chemicals have had on lab rats and more than you could ever want to know about it. These are all mandated by OSHA and the EPA. I spent all last summer working with these guys, its all a pain in the A$$.
