QMaxx BLU…the only solvent I enjoy using in my shop
I started using QMaxx BLU while in school at Trinidad State Jr. College. I recently opened up my own gunsmithing shop in Colorado Spings, CO, and I use QMaxx BLU religiously! Their product cleans shotguns, handguns, and rifles quickly and easily. I am blown away by how much this helps me in the shop and how much time it saves. I have never seen a solvent that removes fouling and carbon build up on a revolver cylinder so easily. Their products are bar-none and are the only solvent I enjoy using in my shop. I have been using it regularly for over a year and a half, and I have yet to see a solvent that does better!

QMaxx…superior to any products I have used in the past 30+ years
I farm in Manson, Iowa. I have tried and tested some of the QMaxx products. One of them I have really been impressed with is QMaxx ICE barrier; I have never seen a product that you have been able to spray on metal and use it for snow removal and not have snow stick to the bucket or blade of a tractor. This product is amazing, and I will keep using it.
Another product I have tried is QMaxx Industrial Strength penetrating solvent. I’m amazed at how it can loosen rusty nuts off bolts in a matter of time by just letting it penetrate into the rust.
The QMaxx H2O chain lubrication also works very well to lubricate chains on planters and combines. Once we’re done with equipment, we brush this product on the chains to keep them from rusting in the off season.
One last product I would like to mention is QMaxx BLU for dissolving rust. I have a couple of guns that have rust on the barrels. By simply rubbing this onto the guns, letting it sit for a while and buffing it
back down, I was amazed how it took the rust off the barrels.
These products are superior to any other products I have used in the past 30+ years of farming. I will continue to use these products because I think they are well worth the money I spent on them.

…QMaxx BLU not only met our expectations but far exceeded them
The purpose of this letter is to personally and professionally endorse QMaxx BLU as a firearm lubricant and a rust preventative. As the Gun Shop Manager of Browning and Winchester, I with the help of other shop employees, conducted extensive testing of different brands of lubricant. We were specifically looking for a lubricant we could use on our firearms on a daily basis. In addition to our own needs, I have been contacted by several customers using our firearms in coastal regions with concerns of oxidation (rust) from salt water contact. After a review of the salt water analysis and some tests of our own, we found QMAXX BLU not only met our expectations but far exceeded them. In our tests, one of our primary concerns was not only to find a rust preventative and a lubricant, but we sought to determine the effect of the product on our wood and camouflage finishes. Through our analysis we found no adverse effects. Currently, we have 18 gunsmiths in our repair facility repairing and inspecting guns on a daily basis, all have QMaxx BLU on their workbench and are pleased with the results. QMaxx BLU is a product we use in our shop as well as a product I use on my personal firearms. I would be more than happy to address any questions you may have regarding the use of QMaxx BLU.

QMaxx Superior…more effective in maintaining a barrier from dust and moisture
It is our pleasure to provide a recommendation of QMaxx Superior for use in building maintenance. Specifically, we have been uwing QMaxx Superior for its effectiveness in lubrication during routine elevator maintenance.
As property managers with a portfolio of about 80 multi-family apartment buildings, we have experienced dissatisfaction with the use WD-40 as a lubricant on moving elevator components. After doing a test with QMaxx Superior, we have found it to be much more effective in maintaining a barrier from dust and moisture. Its durability has had a decidedly positive impact in the performance and safety of our elevators.
We anticipate continued use of QMaxx Superior and look forward to testing other products in the line.

…QMaxx actually outperformed the cutting torch
QMaxx really is a superior product. We had a situation where we could not get something off with a cutting torch but QMaxx Industrial Strength was able to succeed in 5 minutes! Crazy to understand, but QMaxx actually outperformed the cutting torch in the situation presented to us.

…QMaxx well exceeded our expectations
After performing a few tests with QMaxx Industrial Strength, the product we received at a manager’s meeting a few weeks ago, I am gladly able to say QMaxx well exceeded our expectations. Since I have only one can of it, I have to hide it away from my mechanics so they do not fight over it.

…[QMaxx] truly is the best thing we have ever seen
I have talked to other managers at other locations and we all feel that this product truly is the best thing we have ever seen. Expect us to be ordering QMaxx Industrial Strength for a long time.

…[QMaxx Industrial Strength] blew PB Blaster out of the water
Before running into QMaxx at the Knoxville Speedway I was a firm believer of PB Blaster. I would spray PB Blaster on the engaging assembly for the mower deck on my lawnmower and it would last a day or two. I decided to try out the QMaxx Industrial Strength product I received and to my amazement it blew PB Blaster out of the water. Not only has QMaxx continued to lubricate the engaging assembly for the mower deck on my lawnmower, but I have not had problems with my lawnmower for months. I am truly amazed and I am excited to see what else I can try QMaxx on because I know how well it truly works.

Since purchasing your product my mechanics have not even mentioned the word Kroil
Here at Caterpillar we need products to work quick and effectively. The product my mechanics always believed in was Kroil. Turns out they were wrong. We had a piece of equipment and we put Kroil on this part for two days to get it loose and it would not do the job. We took a can of your QMaxx Industrial Strength and by the time we were back from lunch we were able to get the part undone by using only our bare hands…Since purchasing your product my mechanics have not even mentioned the word Kroil to me. All they are interested in now is what other products QMaxx has to offer. You have definitely impressed us!
QMaxx Industrial Strength is one amazing product
Since we opened our shop in 1977, I have not found a better product. QMaxx Industrial Strength is one amazing product. I do not know how you guys did it but keep up the good work and expect us to keep buying it till the day we close up shop.

…I will not be without a can of QMaxx
Dear QMaxx guys, I found your product while at a Pheasant and Quail expo. My assumption was that you were selling the QMaxx Penetrating and QMaxx Industrial to the gun crowd for cleaning and protecting their guns. Upon closer inspection it became obvious to me that this product might fill a much needed niche in the locksmithing industry. Far too often a padlock, even high-quality padlocks, fall victim to corrosion. A blast or two of QMaxx Penetrating, and those locks are back in use. At the University where I work, we have hundreds of padlocks exposed to the elements, as well as commercial-grade locksets on outside applications. Occasionally we will find that the cylinder inside the lockset has become corroded and no longer functions. Before this product, our only solution was to drill out the cylinder and try to preserve the lockset, when possible. With QMaxx Penetrating, I sprayed the cylinder and surrounding area thoroughly and let it absorb for several hours. I re-sprayed the QMaxx, and several hours later the cylinder moved enough that I was able to remove it and the lockset from the door. With the price of cylinders at around $60, and commercial-grade locksets upwards of $200, I will not be without a can of QMaxx. Great product folks, and I plan on spreading the word to the other locksmiths I know.
…[QMaxx H20] lasted almost 300 car washes
I received a can of QMaxx H20 at the Los Angeles Gun Show because I am an owner of various car washes around the Los Angeles area so I wanted to see how it would hold up on the chains that pull cars through the washes. Most products on the market usually hold up between five and six carwashes. I did not think it was possible but QMaxx lasted almost 300 car washes before it started to wear off. Expect to hear from me soon about ordering QMaxx H20 by the gallons.

QMaxx was still protecting…the water beaded off my motor and boat
A friend introduced me to your product at the St. Louis boat show. Fishing more than 50 tournaments a year, I have used just about every product on the market. He claimed the QMaxx FRESH removed the calcium buildup and scum off the boat better than any product he’s used. I bought a can and before the next tournament, treated my boat to it. Sure enough, the product ate through the calcium and took off the scum from the boat. Just that was enough to spark my attention but it did more than that. He claimed since the product itself was heavier than water; water can’t penetrate it and wouldn’t wash it off. Well after a solid weekend of fishing, running more than 100 miles in my boat in excess of 60 mph, QMaxx was still protecting. When I took my boat out of the water, the water beaded off my motor and boat, leaving no watermarks, spots, or scum. I was amazed. QMaxx is truly a premium product and the only one on the market I allow to touch my boat.
…never seen anything work as well as QMaxx SALT
We are very impressed with how well QMaxx SALT works for protecting the outboards on our charter boats as well as all of our fishing equipment and other various equipment we have laying around the marina. We constantly fight salt water and we have never seen anything work as well as QMaxx SALT.
…complete barrier against salt on the manifolds and the exhaust pipes…salt water cannot penetrate it!
Our main job is to build high-performance engines for offshore drag racing vehicles as well as other various vehicles, and I have never seen a product protect against salt water like QMaxx does. We spray it on the outside of the engine once the engine is completed and we have never seen such a product work as a complete barrier against salt on the manifolds and the exhaust pipes. It is amazing at how well it is keeping the engine clean–salt water cannot penetrate it!
…[QMaxx] truly is a salt water displacement and I have never seen anything work like it
I cannot tell you how many times we see boats coming into our shop that are completely ruined due to the salt water getting into the engine or by corroding away at the engine. I can almost guarantee that QMaxx will be [the] new product to keep that stuff from happening because it truly is a salt water displacement and I have never seen anything work like it before–I am truly impressed and I know everyone here in the shop is impressed as well.
…I would recommend Black Diamond over any currently marketed aircraft lubricant/corrosion control agents
I have used Black Diamond on my aircraft flight control hinges, fittings, pulleys, and engine control cable housings. The results are much better than the typical aircraft lubricants, moisture proofing, or corrosion control, such as LVS, LPS, Corrosion X and pulley lubricants. I would recommend Black Diamond over any currently marketed aircraft lubricant/corrosion control agents.
…I am a true believer of the QMaxx product line and count on me to be spreading the word!
I specialize in cleaning up and preserving antique military weapons. QMaxx BLU and QMaxx Penetrating [QMaxx P&L] are amazing for what I need done. These two products are able to free up guns that have not worked for many years but what else is amazing is the fact that these two products allow rusted up guns to look almost brand new. I have never seen anything like it before. I am a true believer of the QMaxx product line and count on me to be spreading the word!
QMaxx is the only oil we use…
Hi Kathy, Yes we have been using the QMaxx BLU and the Black Diamond with very good results, we are very happy with it, and recommend it to all of our incoming students on their tool lists. One area that the QMaxx absolutely excels in is in cold temperature. We do cryogenic processing here at the college and QMaxx is the only oil we use on the parts that are going into the machine.
The process takes the guns down to -320 degrees F and holds them there for 24 hours, then takes the guns back up to either room temperature or we can take them up to +320 degrees, depending on the type of materials. Going thru this wide range of temperatures we pass thru the dew point twice, and parts will rust if not protected. The other oils we were using would not handle the temperature and as a result, if the parts were not re-oiled immediately they would rust.
The QMaxx does not come off and parts can be left in the processor and do not rust. I thought that was interesting, and hope you find it interesting as well. We look forward to using your product more this year as we are encouraging students to use it over other oils. The guys also seem to really like the QMaxx Black Diamond. Please check back with me periodically and I will keep you informed on our experiences.
