QMaxx Black Diamond and BLU Difference
If you use black powder, and even if you don’t, you know that firearms, knives and other metal gear require constant protection against rust and corrosion. That’s why QMaxx created its Black Diamond and BLU formulas. All QMaxx products are engineered to:
- Push water away from metal surfaces because QMaxx is HEAVIER than water.
- Create a microscopic bond with metal that creates a powerful BARRIER against the elements.
QMaxx Black Diamond
QMaxx protects all firearms. But for black powder shooters, QMaxx Black Diamond means an end to the mess of cleaning guns with boiling water.
When you use black powder, it’s essential that you stop rust and corrosion before they start. That means neutralizing the salts. But there’s more you need to know:
- When firing black powder in your muzzle loader or using black powder cartridges, 50% of the residue is solid particulates.
- These particulates (primarily potassium nitrate, potassium carbonate and potassium sulfate) foul your firearm; their hygroscopic properties draw water out of the atmosphere. That’s a formula for rust and corrosion.
- The mercury fulminate in percussion caps deposits a hygroscopic, corrosive salt residue.
- And both wax and cast bullets lead to wax and lead build up in your barrels that’s difficult to clean.
Both QMaxx Black Diamond and BLU will clean, lubricate and protect against rust and corrosion. But Black Diamond’s nanotechnology adds microscopic diamond particles to the formula. These tiny diamonds fill the pores in metal–giving wax, lead, carbon and solid particulates fewer nooks and crannies to fill. That’s fewer places for highly corrosive elements to build up, which translates into less time spent in clean up for you.
The more you use QMaxx, the greater the benefits and easier the clean up.
There’s an important cumulative benefit to using QMaxx. The more you use QMaxx, the less time you’ll need to spend cleaning your firearms. After about a dozen applications, you won’t need to use boiling water to remove and neutralize primary salts and residue.
While Black Diamond is essential to protect your black powder weapons, the QMaxx BLU formula will protect your steel, blued and nickel-plated guns. QMaxx BLU cleans and lubricates while protecting against rust and corrosion. It’s perfect for your modern firearms too.
Solving Black Powder Problems
In addition to the benefits of regular cleaning with QMaxx Black Diamond, here’s a unique way to use QMaxx to protect your black powder firearms:
If you use pre-cut or pillow ticking patches or felt wads, you can pre-treat them with QMaxx Black Diamond instead of Bore Butter or any barrel lube. Let the QMaxx dry so it can’t contaminate your powder charges. Then store the shooting patches and wads until your next shoot. Use your QMaxx-treated patches and wads exactly as you’d use any black powder shooting patch or wad. Even dry, the QMaxx-treated fabric will clean, lubricate and protect with each firing. This is the perfect solution for:
- Round ball muzzle loaders
- Muzzle loading shotguns
- Black powder revolvers
- Brass hull shotgun shell cartridges
