Dow 33 Molykote grease?

I ran across a tube of lube today called Dow 33 "Molykote" extreme low temperature grease. From what I can tell, it is a variation of Dow 33. White in color, no smell. Definitely synthetic. However, something was added to it so that it is "extreme low temperature."

Among its recommended uses are refrigerator hinges and rollers, control cables, electric clocks, Battery-operated motors, windshield wiper motors, and optical equipment.

Do you think that this grease would be usable in paintball markers? It looks to just be Dow 33, with some additive giving it extra temperature resilience. Shed some light?

Thanks!

It's the same thing as Paintball Packaged Dow 33. I believe Dow Corning makes a Low temperatue and Medium temperature variance of the two. Although if you read the packaging on paintball sold Dow 33 is rated to extreme negative temperatures anyway. Negative 100 degrees F to 400 degrees F if I remember correctly. Dow 55 is also called Molykote 55. It's prefectly safe to use in your paintball marker. .

Yes, the temperature ratings are the same for this as well. Thanks for the help!

Either is fine, I would go with the low just for the hell of it. Never use Dow 55 in any marker other than a Intimidator. This is due to the fact that Dow 55 swells o-rings and Intimidators require that.

yes, make something up if you have to, or put where your mom or dad works.. hotmail, or other private emails wont work either, just to clarify some things up. you can put NA in the fax number field as well. just BS your way through.

Meh, it's worth a shot. The worst they can say is no, and they'll still probably end up giving it to you.

I'd lol if they saw this thread.
