Customer Questions & Answers

What kind of O-rings can this be used with?

----Not for use on rubber or synthetic O-rings--- What other kinds of O-rings are there, and how can you tell what kind of material an O-ring is made from? Can you use this grease on any other seals or gaskets?
Asked by: walterwpg
Do not use this grease on any o-rings or similar elastomers. I used it on o-rings in a Moen shower valve. The grease was absorbed by the o-rings, which then expanded ans made the valve very hard to operate. There are silicone (non petroleum) lubricants that work on o-rings.

What good is "plumber's" grease if you can't use it on most faucets?

What good is "plumber's" grease if you can't use it on most faucets?
Asked by: bobbo
Plumber's grease is typically petroleum based and shouldn't be used in contact with any plastics or rubbers (gaskets). You would want to use a silicone grease and if this is potable water then you will want to use an "NSF" listed silicone grease that is approved for drinking water lines.

What kind of o rings and/or gaskets can you lube?

I have the same question that was asked 1-1/2 months ago. When will you provide an answer?
Asked by: Frugal1
O-rings and gaskets can be lubricated, but the right kind of lubricant must be used. Neoprene and similar elastomers should be lubricated with a silicone (non petroluum based) lubricant. Some are specifically rated as safe for o-rings.

Nowhere on the package does it say it's petroleum-based and should not be used with rubber seals. In fact it says the opposite, that it's ok with washers. The manufacturer's website doesn't list this item at all. Please stop selling this deceptive product.

This product will damage o-ring or gasket in plumbing system because it's a petroleum based grease. I never recommend this product in any case. If you need grease for plumbing, buy silicon grease.
