From The Binak Website:

What is BiNaK 495 & BiNaK PRO?

BiNaK 495 and BiNak PRO are "revolutionary" new and superior, musical instrument lubrication oils that consists of an ultra-refined, white light, mineral based oil, with a superb proprietary blend.

What is the difference between BiNaK 495 & BiNaK PRO musical instrument oils?

BiNaK 495 and BiNak PRO oils have the same great qualities, but BiNaK PRO oil is a lighter faster oil for the professional player where performance speed is an issue. BiNaK PRO may also be more aplicable for really tight valves.

Where can BiNaK Musical Instrument Oils be used?

BiNaK Musical Instrument Oils are applicable on all trumpet valves, trombone slides, rotor valves in french horns and keys. They should also be used on spit valves and tuning slide areas.

What makes BiNaK musical instrument oils different from other musical instrument oils?

The lubrication technology for musical instrument oils, up to this point, has been based on kerosene blends, animal fats, alcohol, silicones; to name just a few. BiNaK musical instrument oils are a mineral oil based product that was blended with a proprietary ingredient created by a fluid lubrication specialist who is a Tribologist. This research and development took place over a period of five years, before a formula was produced that met all the inventors criteria. Its unique formula is "state of the art" and completely unlike other oils on the market.

Does BiNaK musical instrument oils have silicones or alcohol in its formulation?

No! Silicones is the leading cause for gumminess in valves and they particularly break down in warm temperatures. Silicones also leave a residue on metals.

Why doesn't BiNaK musical instrument oils have alcohol in its formula?

BiNaK musical instrument oils do not contain alcohol, due to the strong odor and evaporation factor. That evaporation leaves the metals unprotected and therefore, without proper lubrication. The unique lubrication capabilities of BiNaK musical instrument oils are unreplicated in the musical oil business at this time. It lasts so long that a bottle of this oil will last the user several times longer then the present oils being offered today. Also, any instrument left in storage, will not seize up over time, due to the lack of evaporation with this product and its continued lubrication qualities.

How will BiNaK musical instrument oils react to cold temperatures, such as when used by musicians in marching bands and concerts played outdoors?

BiNaK musical instrument oils are the first oil of its kind to have a built in "pour-point depressant". What this means is that when the oil is placed on any area of the instrument, it will withstand temperatures of 50 degrees below 0 or lower without freezing! As any marching band player knows, there is nothing worse then having the valves or slides freeze up during a parade!

Will the BiNaK musical instrument oils adversely react to the metals within my instruments interiors, such as pitting or discoloring?

No! BiNaK musical instrument oils was invented with metal protectors within its formula that will keep moisture from damaging the delicate metal surfaces. These protectors eliminate the "black residue" that is often found from using a petroleum distillate product. It will also maintain the metals from pitting and experiencing excessive metal wear due to its superb lubrication capabilities. These protectors are there and working for you whether your instrument is plated, silver, brass or other material. They even work when your instrument is in storage or not played for any length of time.All rental instruments that are placed in storage should be lubricated with BiNaK musical instrument oils due to the superior protection.

Can I use the BiNaK musical instrument oils for all my instrument lubrication needs?

Absolutely! These oils will eliminate the need for other products completely, because it can be used in all areas of instrument lubrication, safely and effectively. Other oils, creams and water bottles will be a thing of the past!

Review Date: 2/20/2010 Would you recommend the product? No | Price you paid?: $6.00 | Rating: 1 

Pros: None (except it didn't make my valves freeze up)
Cons: Makes valves sluggish

This has got to be the worst valve oil I have ever used. It didn't make my valves move faster. It made them move slower. After following all of the manufactures instructions on cleaning and application, it instantly made my valves move slower. I even tested it on the rest of my horns and had the same problem. Avoid this stuff!
