O-Ring Grease | Silicone & PTFE O-Ring Grease | Polymax UK
O-ring synthetic lubricant is used to prolong O-ring performance and assist in assembly. It is important to pick the right grease to suit your O-ring compound and application use, as some chemicals are not compatible. Silicone Grease is not compatible for silicone O-rings, use PTFE instead.

Silicone Grease – Good for use with natural rubber. Not compatible with silicone
- Highly water repellant
- Oxidation resistant
- Can be used in vacuum pressure systems
PTFE Grease – Compatible with most compounds
- Long-lasting performance
- Superior to most petroleum-based greases
- Protects against friction, rust, corrosion
- Can be used with silicone compounds
Silicone O-Ring Grease
Silicone grease is a great choice for waterproofing and lubricating most compounds, especially natural rubber. It is resistant to a wide range of chemicals, it has a low toxicity and is oxidation resistant.
PTFE O-Ring Grease
PTFE is a great multi-purpose lubricant, unlike silicone grease it is compatible with most compounds. In comparison to other petroleum-based greases, PTFE will provide a longer lasting performance.
