Anyone looking for a good tube of silicone grease to lubricate their piston mechanisms should consider Silverhook SGPGT90 80ml tube of silicone grease. You get a lot for your money. I have been using it for a few years to lubricate my Pelikan piston mechanisms and seals without any problems. Although the pens I have are made with plastic barrels, I havent noticed any deterioration of the plastic including that of my M205 demonstrator. The manufacturer has mentioned that the grease is food grade quality but that was just a comment from their technical department.
jaderiver posted a topic in Repair Q&AI am planning on lubricating the barrel/piston of my Pelikan 600, which is having difficulty turning. My son is an archer and has offered me the use of his Bohring Archery Seal-Tite Bowstring Wax - "Silicone Lubricated Bowstring Wax". Would this product be safe to use in place of the generally acceptable silicone grease, in terms of harm to the Pelikan barrel and piston? After a thorough search of Bohring Archery and other sites, I cannot find any ingredient list for the bowstring wax, other than the "silicone" aspect of the product. So, not sure what the "wax" might entail. Paraffin perhaps? Any comments or opinions welcome. Thanks so much!
