Hi guys I'm in need of some PCP lube.

Any recommendations for cheap pcp lube would be great.

Is this lube suitable for pcp o-rings?
HILL HAND PUMP NLGI 2 SILICONE GREASE.

If you're greasing a pump, I would stick with the Hill grease. If you're lubing o-rings to assemble a pcp, you have a few options.

Silicone grease is the thing to use, and comes in numerous guises, dielectric grease (auto parts store), Divers grease (dive shop), some plumbers greases are silicone (hardware store).

Dow MolyKote 55 is very nice to use, should find it online or at an industrial supplier...google is your friend here. ;)

I picked up a tube of Synthetic Grease called Super Lube - with Syncolon (PTFE) - NON-STAINING DIELECTRIC - these are the words on the front of the tube/.
Looks like Silicone grease to me. Operating Temperature -45F to +450F
From Synco Chemical Corporation, Bohemia NY. 11716

Looks like it.

When in doubt, google the product name and add "msds" in the search. Have a look through the msds to see what's in the product.

I have this stuff - but no PCP to use it on. :cry:

https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/perm ... p.html#srp

Here's it's technical data sheet - says it's silicone.

At 28g it seems like a much better deal than the Moen which says 6g.

That's the stuff, Leadslinger, but mine is in the ctg. card tube with the steel 'pusher' cap for the plunger.
Seems to me I bought the tube at a "Home Hardware" Building Supply store.

googled it:

I use silicone oil more often than silicone grease, seems to work better on most things, though grease is good for say sticking on the internal threads of a Diana StormRider tube when sliding the valve and gauge block in.
Here is the 3 pack of silicone oil I bought last year. Still have piles of it left and since I lose stuff so often it helps since I can usually find one bottle anyway, lol.

Well there you go….wesb to the rescue ….again.
He not only offers great products on his webstore...but great advice (and it's free).

thanks for the referral. It is definitely way cheaper than the Crosman Chamber lube.
Will have to include in my next Amazon.ca order.
