By the time I got around to reading the label to see why
the stuff was burning my hands, the label had faded to
the point that I couldn't make out exactly what the very
active ingredient was.  Nasty stuff - but very effective
at getting rid of the oxidation on antenna wire.  After
I applied it, the wire had this "blister copper" appearance
and took solder like it was thirsty for it....  Jim, K7JEB
