One of the shortcomings of "oil fogging" of new pipe is the deposition of liquids (oil) that have the ability to remove odorant from the gas phase until such time as absorptive saturation of the liquid occurs.
The oil is particularly tacky or adhesive, and has added stray mist suppression to prevent oil fogging. Able to operate over a wide temperature range, these can be applied to pistons, rifle bars and nuts to reduce corrosion and minimise wear.
