I think they have caffeine in them.
So how is it that Scott McKay is buying FPA there?
Because its Isopropyl based?
I assume I don't know, don't know if it has been sent to the state for testing. I know Prochem and CTI and Steam Way and Bridgepoint Solvent Protectors, as well as many other solvents, and paint such as Aftershock went away. I know Auto Painters got hit hard too
Odorless Mineral Spirits are banned for use in protection spray in 18 States (Bridgepoint, Masterblend etc..). It all started with California. T-butyl acetate is approved but smells real nice. According to that "other brand" L.C. claims it is isoparifin and that it is safe for all states.
There is no such thing as the best protector. Features of a protector are soil resistance, stain resistance, oil repellency and water repellency. You can test all you want and no protector will win all categories. However, different fibers and fabrics have different needs. The need of the fibers and fabrics should determine its best protector.
Regulations do impact the best choice for some states. Recently, I have received a solvent based C6 sample approved by the EPA that can be mixed with OMS instead of t-butyl acetate. This will minimize the odor issue for the states with no VOC laws, but will still not be legal in the 18 low VOC states.
In most grout cases, cheapest and lowest solids is "best"
