It's good stuff and the default I reach for when I am looking for light dampening. Though I will admit that Nano-Oil feels different, very smooth. I may switch to it having used it on pivots many years back and not being excitted about the results. Probably mix it in with some Krytox 205 for rings and threads...I'm looking for a very thick conductive grease to fix the wobbly head of my Astrolux M01. NO-OX-ID seems to fill the bill from what I read in this thread.
I -think- regular Superlube grease is silicone-based. I used some once many years ago with red O-rings and ruined them. YMMV. My guess is that their silicone O-ring product is not silicone.Just to double check, both Nyogel and Super-Lube are NOT silicone based, correct? And thus should not cause swelling or decay to silicone based O-rings? I ask because I was informed by the owner of Sofirn that his O-rings are silicone based. Thanks in advance
What is the choice version of krytox to use on ti threads? Just the plain pfpe GPL205? Or the thicker 206 or 207 versions?
That’s what I’m thinking (and hoping). I found one of my old Foursevens flashlights (it was sitting in a storage container for about 4 years untouched). Cleaned off the old lube and dirt with rubbing alcohol then used Superlube to condition the O-ring and help with water resistance. Hopefully it doesn’t ruin the o-ring but from what I’ve read SuperLube does pretty well with silicone based O-rings.Then again, reading the Superlube O-ring lube page, it seems to say that it is silicone for silicone O-rings, which makes no sense to me. Maybe it's not the silicone but some other ingredient that ruins silicone rings.
