Plexus and delrin

Just curious and all but I heard a while back that you can use plexus as a lube for delrin since it does not bond to it. Is that true ? And I don't know much about plexus but is it anyway water based?

I've never heard of plexus. I don't think you should really need to lube delrin though. The whole idea of it is that it it doesn't need oil or lube

There's no real reason to lube delrin. The coefficient of friction of delrin/aluminum is already really low. If anything, put a drop of oil on each o-ring.

Do not use plexus as a lubricant, it is not designed for that nor should it be used as such. Lube your bolts... I don't understand why people think that just because it's made out of a "plastic" you don't have lubricate it. The idea is lessen friction between the breach and the surface area of the bolt and PROTECT the breach from unnecessary wear.

if you can't afford name brand lubricants, store brand Vaseline will work just fine in the right amount.

Unless you really want to swell your orings and delrin, please dont use dino grease...

There are much better things out there... a small bottle or tube of synthetic oil or grease really doesn't cost that much.

Don't use plexus. Works great on goggle lenses, but why lube derlin? Drop some light oil on the orings, and should be good to go!

WHAT!?! DO NOT USE PETROLEUM BASED PRODUCTS. THEY WILL DISINTEGRATE THE ORINGS, ANODIZING AND BOLT.


Thank you.


THAT and Vaseline costs more than air tool oil or lithium grease, which is more acceptable than a petroleum based product, but nonetheless could be replaced by a good quality oil from some company like AKALMP.

Vaseline (petrolium jelly) is what WGP recommended. And most o-ring are buna. They are widely used in industry from fruel to air tools and so on.

So if AKA oil isn't.....well....oil(petrolium). What is it?

To the OP.

Air tool oil, triflow or any light oil will be fine. I would not use a grease because it is thick and adds drag to the bolt.
