Krytox 206g2 Grease 5ml Syringe
Use: Apply copius amounts to the stabilizer bar where it contacts any part. Syringe allows for maximum grease with extreme precision.
5ml in a capped Luer-Lok syringe

18 Ga. tip is identical to the one used in the video above up below.
So the conventional method of lubricating stabilizers is to dip/paint the wire with the chosen lubricant and then said wire is then inserted into the stabilizer housing.
There are certain greases which are popular options although they can cause more problems than they solve. These are thick greases such as dielectric grease or the very popular Krytox XHT BDZ. It is very easy to have these greases negatively impact the keyfeel of the board by imparing the sliding motion of the plunger. More importantly, silicone based dielectric grease should NEVER be used with Topre Domes.
Thinner greases like Krytox 205g0 or TriboSys 3204 simply are not viscous enough to mute the rattle of the stabilizer bar. The necessary grease consistency for properly lubricating stabilizer bars is NLGI grade 2, such as Krytox 205g2 or 206g2.
Now onto the solution - use a syringe.
This method works well to stop rattle and the application of the lube/grease is very consistant with each application. This method has been perfected over the course of 150 topre builds. 206g2 Syringes have proven to be a far more effective and easy way to lubricate my stabilizer bar needs.
Note - this method can definitely be used for a stabilizer that is already mounted to a keyboard for example a prebuilt board or if your stabilizers need retuning and you dont want to desolder.
TL;DR - Watch video to see how a syringe makes lubing stabilizers much easier with better, more consistant results.
We do not accept returns for lubricants as it would be impossible to guarantee they were not tampered, contaminated, or stored improperly.
The thermal decomposition vapours of flourinated polymers may cause polymer fume fever with flu-like symptoms. Wash hands thoroughly before smoking or handling tobacco products.
Lubricant can not be cleaned with soap and water and is resistant to many solvents.
Although the lubricant is chemically stable and non-hazardous please wear gloves and place a protective layer of drop-plastic below any working surface. Spills are difficult to clean, and the lubricant will transfer from an operators hands to any surface they may touch.
Please clean up any accidents with a microfiber cloth.
