I find use of all the toothbrushes I get from my hygienist work great for cleaning threads.I've used it for a very long time. Only times I've had issues with it was when I had lights in VERY cold weather. The threads get a little stickier unless you keep it in a warm pocket or until the light warms up from use.. How much are you putting on the threads? Clean the threads first as well.. with a toothpick or something. You don't need to use very much 760G.
That is not my experience.. maybe try without the battery installed.. to eliminate drag from that source.. I dont get any drag, just nice smooth operation.It is so thick it feels like it drags when screwing on the head or tail cap.
I dont read it that way. My interpretation is that the two products are used interchangeably. which tells me that lots of differentinfers that SF uses 2 different products for O-rings and threads at the same area.
Actually not, these Nyes aren't silicone. I also have a tube of Ford/Motorcraft rebranded 760G. At least that makes it easily available and affordable. The weird stuff like 767A isn't.The large tube of 760g I have is relabeled Mopar. Sells for half the price of Nyogel branding.
Hey, it's all silicone grease however it's labled..

FWIW, Oveready uses Nyogel 760a on all the lights they sell, not just aluminium, they also use it on their Titanium lights..
as far as the Oring comment from surefire, I agree Silicone (Nyogel, dielectric grease) does not harm BUNA O rings, which is what our lights use.
Silicone is not compatible with Silicone O rings, but thats not what our lights come with.

In fact, NyoGel 759G is now replaced by NyoGel 760G. NyoGel 760G offers slightly higher thermal stability and is rated for temperature ranging from -40°C to 135°C. In addition to that, NyoGel 760G has UV dye for inspection and copper passivator is added to it for enhanced corrosion prevention."
I dont read it that way. My interpretation is that the two products are used interchangeably. which tells me that lots of different silicone formulations work fine. The advantage of the 760G is higher temperature tolerance, less likely to melt out than the earlier formulation, 759G, that was superseded by 760G, which has several enhancements.
they are all silicone, just different additives
thanks for that link, very helpful.. so 760G is made from synthetic PAO not synthetic Silicone..760G data sheet; it's "silica" thickened, but a "PAO" oil base, as I understand it.
ah, yes, I think I understand what you meanIts smooth but just seems stiffer.
