Krytox 205g0 and GPL 105 Lube
Our selection of lubricants for use on your mechanical keyboard switches and stabilizers ensures a smoother and much better-sounding typing experience. We offer two types of aerospace-grade lubricant by Chemours, sold under the name Krytox. Each lube has slightly different properties and is intended for a different purpose. We also offer a small and very precise brush for lubing your switches (size 00).
The mix of Krytox 205g0 and Krytox 105 comes in two separate bottles.
Krytox GPL 105 - oil, best used for lubing of switch springs or in combination with greases such as Krytox 205g0 or 205g2 for other parts of the switch and stabilizers
Krytox 205g0 - grease, highly regarded and widely used in the switch lubing community, intended for both switches and stabilizers
Lubing Brush - size 00 - our brushes provide control and precision at a great value
Lube Container - a clear plastic container with screw-on lid - 30mm x 16mm - compatible with our upcoming lube station - can hold up to 10g of Krytox 205g0
Lube Bottle - smoky dark plastic bottle, a white screw-on top (with seal) - approx. 15mm x 60mm - can hold up to 25g of Krytox 105 oil
~5g of lube should be enough to cover 200-300 switches. For spring lubing with Krytox GPL 105, we recommend using a resealable plastic bag (ships with lube) or a plastic container. Do not throw away your lubing bag, since it might be used for multiple batches of springs with just a small oil top-up.
The art of switch lubing, similarly to the art of making love, improves with practice and an occasional online video tutorial. Therefore we highly recommend you to watch a few tutorials from reputable sources on youtube. The goal is usually to strike the right balance between using too little and too much lube on your keyboard switches and stabilizers. At the same time, it comes to the preference of the user. Good luck, and let us know if you have any trouble with using our lube.
