Hi friends!

 

I need to clean a WE Oscar Wilde FP with a soft ammonia dilution (arround 5% of ammonia), and my doubt is what kind of material is the barrel made. Is a marbled resin or is made of celluloid??

 

I´ll be expecting your comments and suggestions, obviously I don´t want to damage my WE.

 

Thanks!

 

Cheers from Chile

It's made of resin :)

 

I think you can easily use a 5% solution if you just flush it with water afterwards.

I would say you can clean it with your 5% solution. As Chopper88 says, it's made of resin, so you should be quite safe.

Thanks Chrissy for double confirmation about clean WE with 5% solution.

 

Cheers!
