Oil-free technology to lubricate and protect hard to reach areas of all your firearms and gear. Use with TUF-CLOTH, for 100% oil-free protection.
- Slick action in all conditions and temperatures – won't thicken from cold or thin out from heat
- Displaces water, resists grit and dirt
- Keeps guns and gear clean and running smoother and longer
How It Works
TUF-GLIDE penetrates hard to reach areas and displaces water. It provides cleaning, rust protection and lubrication. Pure mineral spirits carries the active ingredients and provides cleaning action. It quickly evaporates, and Sentry's proprietary ingredients bond to the surface. The bonding ensures long-lasting effectiveness, and reliable dirt free performance.
TUF-GLIDEs waterproof protection will not wash off and will not thicken in the cold (even down to -40°F/-40°C). It is dry to the touch so will not attract dirt like oil-based products, nor does it leave a slippery film like silicone. It is safe to use on wood and most plastics.
Shake bottle. If surfaces to be protected are very dirty, grimy or oily, best performance will be achieved if the surface is cleaned before using TUF-GLIDE. For lightly soiled surfaces TUF-GLIDE should be used for cleaning.
Apply a few drops of TUF-GLIDE to surfaces or areas to be protected. Work the mechanism to insure complete coverage. Wipe off any excess and remainder of equipment with TUF-CLOTH for 100% protection.
For best results make TUF-GLIDE a regular part of gear care program Use frequently if item is exposed to wear or stored outdoors. For extreme conditions or saltwater applications use MARINE TUF-CLOTH.
While exhibiting our Small Arms lubricants at Ft. Benning's Army Infantry Training Center, Sentry Solutions was approached by a Colonel from the Fire Support Armaments Center at Picatinny Arsenal.
Fire Support Armaments Center is hosted by ARDEC (Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center), Headquartered at Picatinny Arsenal, N.J. Picatinny Arsenal's mission is to support the Army's transformation process. ARDEC is the Army's principal research center for the development of future armament and munitions systems. More than 2,500 highly skilled scientists, engineers and technical specialists are tasked with giving our troops the best and most effective equipment possible.
The personnel at ARDEC saw a need for a Cleaning System and Cleaning Kit to give soldiers additional tools to keep their weapons (M-4/M-16) and magazines clean and running in whatever conditions they face. Our military strives to equip our troops with the most efficient tools available and that is in keeping with Sentry Solutions' mission. Our product line was developed to give our troops new technology based products for this new age of war fighting.
The Squad Weapons Maintenance Kit is for use by the Stryker Brigades http://www.strykernews.com/ . The kit helps soldiers maintain their individual weapons with supplemental maintenance technologies. Our troops have been using assorted gun care products, many of these utilize "old technology". Sentry Solutions products are too new and remain unknown to many military personnel. For the last ten years Sentry Solutions has been supplying mainly special operations teams. In early 2002, forty soldiers from Ft. Drum deployed to Afghanistan, started sharing their TUF-CLOTHs with another seven hundred soldiers from Ft. Campbell. That is when the Army got a chance to see just how good Sentry Solutions products were for the operating conditions they faced in the deserts and mountains of Afghanistan.
Each kit consists of a durable carrying case, a refillable compressed air can with hand pump, plastic finger sprayer bottles for applying lubricant, magazine speed loaders, rifle cleaners, gun cleaning picks, magazine protective bags, protective dust caps, assorted paint brushes and ten TUF-CLOTHs (the new alternative to gun cloths of yesteryear). As of 2005, more than 10,000 TUF-CLOTHs have been incorporated to these Kits.
As of 2006, the "down range PXs" only sell two Small Arms Lubricants- TUF-CLOTH and TUF-GLIDE.
