Silicone Grease For Piston Lubrication


Recommended Posts

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.

Food grade is ok.

I was given a gift of a thumb joint long flip top plastic container of silicon grease nearly a decade ago, in once silicon grease was very, very hard to get here in Germany. I still have 1/5th of it.


Rick Propas, said, a piston pen may need re-lubing every three years.


A half a rice corn or less of it on a tooth pick or a light smear on a Q-tip will be enough.

In reference to P. T. Barnum; to advise for free is foolish, ........busybodies are ill liked by both factions.



The cheapest lessons are from those who learned expensive lessons. Ignorance is best for learning expensive lessons.
