These grease are commonly used for lubricating and preserving many types of rubber parts, such as O-rings, without swelling or softening the rubber, but is contraindicated for silicone rubber due to these factors. It functions well as a corrosion inhibitor and lubricant on non-metal-metal contact areas.
Available in different packaging from tubes, to cans, and spray.
Tips for using underwater lubricants:
- Keep in mind that you should put a very very small amount of grease every time you lube your o-rings. Just enough for it to shine, but with no visible patches of grease on the o-rings itself.
- The most important time to apply grease is AFTER diving, before putting your housing in storage for a while. This is when the o-rings may dry up and crack.
- When storing for a long time, we recommend taking the o-rings out, applying a bit of grease and putting them in closed zip-lock bags till the next time you head to a dive trip. This method will keep them fresh and usable for many years.
