Why it reminds me of spooge.KG-8 Micro P.T.F.E. Dry Lube is new technology, incorporating a highly effective proprietary grinding process. This new technology grinds the Teflon Molecule to half of its molecular weight creating a low surface tension lube. The result produces a multi purpose lubricant which greatly reduces friction and wear more effectively then the normal P.T.F.E. Use Teflon Dry Lube where a dry, no-mess lubricant is required, i.e. triggers, slides, etc... It is especially useful for conceal and carry weapons where oil can be a problem, or for hunters where a no-scent lubricant is a requirement.
Watery. Would make a terrible for porn - Methyl Cellulose is much better. RO-59 is the mysterious spoogle like substance from the east. Manufacturer Link. Japanese Link - The Source Of Magical Spooge Rumors.
Thanks to RiGS for pointing this stuff out.RO-59's unique proprietary formula is the only bonded,
water-based PTFE lubricant
I got it here but probably available at any corner gun shop in the USA. Or Gaddaffi's palace if it hasn't been stolen. I didn't find a MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) so I'll just hope for the best and test on this Focus 2001 cannibalized keyboard.
The stuff dries like instantly and leaves a white powdery surface. Pretty easy to apply to the sliders without opening up.
More chemical tests to follow.
- Solvent test on keys. Kinda like a reverse of using acetone to test Spacebars. Now using spacebars to test for nasty solvents. Check the MSDS on this TriFlow Stuff - PDF link - lots of interesting stuff - better to be safe than sorry - like rubbing alchohol in Germany versus the USA.
After application to a Kinesis lasered key. Note how it eats away the lasered "paint" infill
This is after cleaning with Isopropyl. It's all messed up. And NO it isn't slick.
- Dump a bunch into the switch and open it up to see how effective
- Paint brush Japanese Sumi style.
- Cherry MX - a bit skeptical it makes that big a deal there.
- Need to find some good candidates though - I tend to buy NIB.
Maybe nickels if allowed.
Stabilant 22 is a isopropyl solvent based lubricant. Not PFTE based but Konrad has used it (see below). $85 on Amazon. I assume it's so expensive since Canadians have that socialistic Universal Health Care. Try other distributors for cheaper source.
This sounds better but can't find a source. Another water based PFTE.
That is a LOT of spooge!
