I've never heard of Danitrol. We quit using LPS-3 many years ago. For a short time we used something called T-9. We now use Zip-Chem. I think it's all about who offers the best deal on price. Pretty soon we'll just be spraying everything with used motor oil.

The stuff is called Dinitrol and comes in several versions of varying viscosity (from sprayable liquid to thick gunk to be applied with a paint brush).
The Dinitrol dries out to form a hard, waxy, non-sticky surface. LPS3 on the other hand stays sticky.
Mel, you obviously never worked in heavy MX, else you would know both materials by heart.

Jan & Mel, I have seen LPS3 for many years (maybe 30) and always dis-liked it because it is so messy. Recently where I work we got some new (used) a/c which have a substance which looks like LPS3 in all the w/w, only this stuff is hard and does not rub off. Maybe that's Dinitrol. A/c came from KAL.

Yes, Mel I have used the combination before. But only because I had run out of one and had to get the job done. Dinitrol is real messy going on (until it dries) while LPS-3 is much easier initially. It is not an issue because both are approved materials. Use what ever is handy.

Nothing like the "Braille" method Mel. Give it a feel and see. A bright light or flashlight will keep the confusion to a minimum. As time progresses you will pick up the subtleties of the differences. Look below the area- is it wet. If there is a leak, a good indication will be the ABSENCE of Dinitrol. Good luck!
