Winter is coming: we choose the best silicone lubricant

Experts “Behind the wheel” has tested 16 products based on silicone and only three of them can unconditionally recommend.Alexey Revin “driving”ExpertMichael Kolodochkin “driving”Expert

With the advent of real cold weather all cars, regardless of their status, start similar trouble. Do not open the glass door and — froze. In the cabin there are nasty squeaks and other extraneous sounds. And all these ills there is a cure — silicone grease. According to the manufacturers, it is easy to cope with the squeaks and freezing, and even corrosion.

We decided to test the real capacity silicone lubricants — 16 and bought drugs. In our gallery they are in alphabetical order. The test results relate only to the specific sample of goods, and therefore cannot serve as a basis for assessing the products of a firm as a whole.

Program and methods of testing

Tests on the freezing of rubber products treated with silicone preparations, to the glass surfaces.Tests on the freezing of rubber products treated with silicone preparations, to the glass surfaces.

In anticipation of winter we are primarily interested in how well the drugs work in the cold. So we put them in the freezer, where they spent the day at a temperature of -25 °C.

Objective: to ensure that such chemicals can be transported in the winter in the trunk of a car.

The next stage is the test of ability to withstand freezing. Processed and numbered rubber piece placed on the moistened glass and painted metal plates, again at a temperature of -25 °C. After 24 hours, check for frozen anything tightly.

In addition, I decided to make sure that drugs do not dissolve they treated rubber. The reference for this rubber piece covered with a silicone lubricant stand at room temperature for 48 hours, then pressed with a calibrated force every piece of white lint-free paper and visually determined the degree of pollution. As a bonus compared different packaging: the spray can, roller, trigger and bottle.

Which silicone is better?

Storage in the cold not everyone liked grease. The drug Pro-Brite Silicon Spray РН4233 we actually withdrew from further testing. Not only that, the content turned to stone, and microphone gun cracked. When the medium is thawed, the reason became clear: silicone inside almost was not, only water.

At this stage it became clear that drugs, in which the lubricant is fed through the spongy tip, frost also dislike. Obvious failures we have not detected, but in the cold sponges become hard, to use such a drug was difficult. In addition, the sponge quickly become dirty. But aerosols are not afraid of cold weather. But they have another drawback: when the treatment door seals be sure to pour silicone all around. Preferred “rollers” — the drug is consumed sparingly in cold, they are not afraid.

Test freezing all of the subjects survived. However, three of the remaining fifteen (No. 2 — Eltrans EL‑0502.05; No. 10 Liqui Moly Art. 7655; No. 14 — Runway RW6149) stuck with their rubber pieces to glass surfaces. True, not much: billet quite easily have left their homes. To overcome such a small force (about 2 Newtons) on the shoulder of any window. The rest of the blanks came off almost under the action of gravity.

During the test, the interaction of silicone greases with rubber outright failures are not recorded. A little worse than others proved No. 2 — Eltrans EL‑0502.05, No. 4 — Felix, No. 5 — Fill inn FL117, No. 6 — G‑Power GP‑508, No. 13 — Rexant article 09-3930, No. 14 — Runway RW6149, No. 16 Kalashnikov. The rest of the lube without comment.

Good drugs No. 1 — AVS Crystal AVK‑102, No. 3 — Eurol multi silicone spray UN1950, No. 7 — Hi-Gear Silicone spray HG5501. No complaints! Given the cost per unit of output, we give prefer the Dutch No. 3.
