The FrameSaver can does not tell you the contents. However it makes a point to say that it is a petroleum distillate and contains heptane. Then: "Warning: This product contains a chemical(s) known to the state of Conn. to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm." Then: "VAPOR HARMFUL" later on, "INHALING THE CONTENTS MAY BE HARMFUL OR FATAL." These are the can's capitals, I'm not shouting. :-)

Okay, so maybe I don't reallly know what I am talking about, but this is enough for me. The world strikes me as filled with toxicities, many of which we are imbibing and that is, well, just life. But here we have something that makes a point of telling you just how it might be that much more toxic. I think we can safely avoid this stuff and breathe easier. I think that my experience with bikes rusting demonstrates to me that rust is not a serious problem for me. So I'll err this time on the side of non-toxicity.

I've used Fsaver before but not again,
