    Hello there,

    I purchase a 2oz tube of Tribolube 71 a couple of years ago now for the o rings on my sea and sea housing however I didn't end up using it before I sold the housing. I have since purchased a Nauticam NA-7000V housing and wondered if the Tribolube is suitable for the o rings in this housing. Also the tube is still sealed but doesn't have an expiry date on it. I know it may be a totally stupid question but can it go off?

    Kindest regards,
    Nick

    Not a stupid question at all Nick.

    Tribolube is a suitable lubricant for every oring i have on both OC and CCR kit. The tube I have in my dive kit downstairs is at least 4-years old and is performing to specs as far as I can tell. It's viscosity in cold water is less than any of the other hyrdocarbon-free lubs I am aware of which is why I use it. In short, there seems to be no reason not to use it in your application.

    Good luck mate.

    Great thanks Steve :)
    i also messaged the manufacturer and they said,

    "No issue, should be compatible with any o-rings
    Should be stable for more than 10 years, as o-ring lube even longer
    You may want to knead the tube to lessen oil separation


    Best regards,
