Tribolube is good stuff. More importantly, I’ve delt with DGX for a number of orders in the last few months. Had an issue with a defective product, and their response was stellar. I’ll be continuing my patronage for sure.

I bought a couple of the smallest tubes (5g size) and they each hold enough lube to complete 15 or 20 regulator overhauls. I found the lube needed mixing to reach a homogeneous appearance. I don't know if that means the product is old or not. If you squeeze the liquid back and forth in the tube before opening the white fluid doesn't come out quite so clumpy.

DGX has revolutionized the way we purchase scuba diving equipment and accessories. With incredibly competitive and reasonable prices, paired with amazing customer service, the lube just does the job on it's own. HIGHLY recommend all their products, especially their DGX line.

Tek Tip Warning Image WARNING

While oxygen compatible materials typically have higher temperatures of ignition than hydrocarbons, nearly all oxygen compatible lubricants and O-rings can still serve as fuel in the kindling chain of an oxygen fire. An unwelcome side effect of oxygen compatibility is when the materials do burn, their combustion byproducts can be extremely toxic gases. The use of oxygen compatible materials does not eliminate the need to always follow best practices for oxygen handing, including avoiding contamination and opening valves slowly.

Dive Gear Express only sells lubricants that are supplied directly from the factory in their carefully selected packaging, but some individuals and even a few retailers are purchasing in bulk containers and then repackaging it in smaller sizes. Aerospace Lubricants has advised us this is an unapproved and possibly unsafe practice. These unapproved package types contain mold release agents, silicone treated rubber stoppers in the syringes, and dyes in colored containers, all of which can leach into the lubricant itself. These containers, along with the repackaging conditions themselves, are certain to produce lubricants which are contaminated and no longer suitable for oxygen service.

How Much and Where to Use Lubricant

Under most circumstances, lubricant is properly used very sparingly or not at all. In nearly all SCUBA applications, if you can see the lubricant then you have used too much. Lubricant is often improperly used excessively, and prior to use any existing lubrication should be completely removed before reapplying new lubricant. Lubricant is NOT a "sealant" and is not used to create a seal. Most lubricant is used with dynamic seals in regulators to reduce excessive wear. Lubricant is also used in rebreathers to ease assembly of loop components that incorporate very tight connections. As a general rule, the O-rings used with static seals in SCUBA applications should not be lubricated at all. The lubricant just causes contamination to stick to the surface of the O-ring and results in more problems with a static seal than any dubious benefit the lubricant might provide. Dive Gear Express does not recommend the use of any lubricant when installing SCUBA valves in cylinders for Nitrox applications.
