I've heard of a couplant called "Hammiclear" (spelling??) and am curious about it's acoustic properties. Has anyone used it and if so, can you offer some comments?

Re: Couplant
From what I know of this product, it contains a suspected or known carcinogen and can damage the plastic housings on some equipment (may be different for other grades).
Are you familiar with Sonotech's couplants? Do you have a specific application in mind?
