Awesome! And these bottles are free if you have ever purchased their sauce or plan to.

I got a couple of the sweep bottle. They seem VERY NICE! They are smaller than the sticky fingers bottles. The dauber seems a bit more solid. I haven't tried using them yet but once I do I will update my review.

So I put the Paragon in and it didn't melt right away. Seems to apply the compound well. Doesn't come out too fast. I did mess up one of the dauber caps on one of my bottles. The cap wasn't in far enough. I took some pliers to the cap to twist in on further and it just twisted apart.

I also got some Sweep compound to try. Anyone know how this stuff is supposed to be? Seems kind of like the Trinity Tire Tweak. Does it need to be baked in?

I've had Paragon sitting in one of those plastic bottles for over a year now. No melting or deforming and the applicator is still in good shape.

My Buggy Grip bottle is almost empty, that is where the Paragon is going when it is.

You can bake our sauce in or just wipe 5 minutes before running depends on the amount of traction needed. The answer to anyone questions on paragon in our Wacky Tacky bottle I've had full one sitting upside down for 20hrs right now and going with out any signs of leaking. No more leaking paragon bottles

Technically, any product like traction compound must have an MSDS safety sheet to alert the user to dangerous chemicals. They don't have to tell you the exact formula, but they do have to let you know if there is something dangerous in there.

I use a bottle/applicator from a liquid shoe polish (Kiwi brand. Don't know if it's available elsewhere) Seems to work fine. No melting of plastic. Used with NASA and Paragon tire sauces.
