This item is a 5ml aliquot of Christo Lube MCG-129 in a screw capped tube. This will lube around 500 switches.
Christo-Lube® lubricants have been widely used under high pressure environments such as diving regulators and equipment. This is a solid statement on how Chirstolube has superior performance and durability than other commercial grade lubricants. When it comes to lubing mechanical switches, Christo-Lube® is the right choice because it is the perfect fit for mechanical sliders.
Safe to use on switches with any kind of materials, including POM which is often considered “lubricant repelling” and is the material for Holy Pandas and Novelkeys switches.
Christo lube MCG-129 is perfect for linear switches and is considered to be the equivalent of the well-known krytox 205g0. It gives the widely popular “buttery” feel due to its high viscosity and is the keystone in reaching the end-game level of typing experience for linear switches.
You can also use MCG-129 on tactile switches, however be mindful of the applied amount. Since MCG-129 has a higher viscosity than MCG-111, the tactility of the switches could be reduced if too much is applied. When applied sparingly you can have one of the best typing experiences.
This is probably the best lubricant for stabilizers as it has top tier durability and consistency.. When applied correctly, MCG-129 will give you the most refined stabilizers for your keyboard.
- Take apart your switch with a switch opener, or a flat head screwdriver.
- Remove the spring and the stem, and apply a thin layer or lube to the switch sliders using a size 00 paint brush.
- Gently tap on both ends of the spring with your paint brush with lube. A tiny amount of lube would be enough to eliminate pinging noises. Excessive amount of lube here does not show any benefits.
- Apply a thin layer of lube to the 4 contact sides of the stem.
- Put the switch back together and test the switch.
- Repeat steps 1-5 until you are satisfied with the smoothness.
