    Yes, any petroleum-based jelly eats the rubber, and it will cause the rubber to stretch and soon break. Someone up top said petroleum products will break down rubber eventually. According to the website WD40 is safe on rubber. Backwashing A Pool Backwash hose is a helpful tool that helps many homeowners in their pool maintenance, and this is why it is considered a must-have if you have your own swimming pool. The first step to ensure a long life for an O-ring application is at the time of installation.

    This depends heavily on the type of o-ring. If you use vaseline with a rubber o-ring, the rubber will be attacked by the vaseline which is mineral oil based. In.Pumps, Filters, and Plumbing Oct 6, Dan

    Just a thought can Vaseline be used to lubricate a watch gasket or will it ruin the Safe to lubricate O-rings with Petroleum Jelly?Yes you can use wd 40 but its effectiveness will only be as good as its presurissed value, and may as well use one of those compressed air can computer air blowers.

    I'd suggest KY Jelly over Vaseline as the later isn't so good with rubber and can A silicone lubricant would be best for rubber o rings.Overall, it is not recommended to use Vaseline on your rubber gaskets to maintain your pool equipment.

    Thus, Vaseline is bad. Most colored o-rings are silicone. Thus, silicone grease is bad. The one grease I've found that is.Lubrication of O-rings is essential for the proper function and full-service life of the seal, but also to ensure the machine, motor, engine, or device in which it is placed does not malfunction from a blown seal.

    I use Vaseline petroleum jelly - it's what I keep in the shop for all o-ring applications. Vaseline is the only way to farmasiuyelik.onlinetely.When it comes to lubrication, you need to ensure you are using the proper lubrication for all your pool equipment.

    NEVER to use petroleum jelly or oil on a rubber o-ring as the petroleum products would eventually attack and destroy rubber. We used silicon grease.Recommended Posts.

    Petroleum jelly or Vaseline will damage most o rings so I would recommend staying away from that. You should be able to find silicone.Nick72 Apr 15, Aquarium Filter.

    Please do not use a petroleum-based lubricant as Petroleum Jelly as it can break down the machine's rubber. Super Lube is the right product if you are looking.Nitrile also known as "Buna or Buna-N" is a petroleum based material.

    I know it has big letters that say petroleum jelly on Vaseline but I've used it on a ton of O rings with no adverse affects,,, but none.Usually e-liquid does the job for me.
