Hi Kathy,
      I have been following this question and thought I would voice my
thoughts. This "AOlite" polishing compound did not come from our microtome
knife sharpeners. I believe it was a product name of material to cut and
polish prescription eyeglasses. Being from the '70s, there won't be a MSDS
for this material. I am trying to confirm my guess by trying to contact any
of AO's older opthalmic people. If you have a "eyeglass or Opthalmic dept"
, you might see if they remember.
Best regards,

Hi Netters,

I have just spent a fruitless hour hunting the MSDS net for a list of the
ingredients for American Optical "AOlite polishing compound" circa 1970
ish? Yes, I foolishly found a bottle in deep storage. Yes, probably it's
just mineral oil and some kind of grit, but, I need to dispose of this
properly. AO has been out of business for a bit, so no help there, google
no help, siri msds no help, ilpi no help, etc.  I have tried all the MSDS
websites that I know of, and there are many, and no luck...Anyone out there
have any more hints/help? Thanks!
