The key word is "highly-volatile". That means that it is GONE in a matter
of days and any lubricating properties with it.
WD-40 is good for loosening stuck hardware and other such temporary
lubrication needs. It is not a long-term lubricant. In fact, the can
doesn't have the word "lubricant" anywhere on it.
Try this experiment: Find a squeeky door hinge in your house. Use WD-40
on it. It will stop squeeking. Keep a record of how long it takes for the
squeek to come back. Try again with LPS 2.
