Good Day All,
Just wondering if anyone can tell me if the bintel lens cleaning fluid has any detrimental effect on the rubber at the egde of my binocular lenses/eyepieces? Does it have any IPA in it?

This works very well.

:thumbsup: Hi guys , this does work well , but the secret is to use it ,
because if you drown the lense in to much , some might seep down in between the lenses :sadeyes: , and that means pulling them out , seperating them and cleaning away the excess ..
That can be a recipe for disaster ,, so remember :rofl: ,, sparingly.. OK .
A little dust is ok ,that needs blowing off first , or do you have finger prints ??? oops ..

I imagine it has an isopropyl base to it?
Was asking that because if it does I will try my best not to touch the edges or the seals.

isopropyl should be ok for the seals, its acetone you need to watch out for.
when cleaning i like to use (in this order)
acetone (keep it away from the edges)
breath if needed with lens cloth
or if im lazy i use zeiss lens cleaning wipes
its the applicator you have to watch, make sure its soft & or wetb enough not to scratch

You can test this by performing the chemical analysis test in your own private chem lab facilities (your nose :P).
Probably it does..
Windex also has isopropil, and works perfectly well.
