The Krytox 205G0 grease lubricant is the perfect consistency and base oil viscosity for keyboard enthusiasts. It's made for Topre and linear switches but will function superbly with any tactile switch of your choosing.
Thanks to its indefinite shelf life you won't have to worry about purchasing another one for a long time, or it degrading your keyboard and compromising it.
It comes in a handy 5ml vial which is enough keyboard lubricant for around 500 switches.
Do take note that you'll also need a small paintbrush to apply the keyboard switch lube.
Other handy accessories include: a switch station, a switch puller, and a switch opener designed for your brand of keys.
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some commonly asked questions when it comes to the Krytox GPL 205g0.
What is Krytox 205G0 used for?
The Krytox 205G0 is the perfect lubricant for linear and Topre switches. It only requires a very light application and a 5ml viable should be enough for nearly 500 applications.

Krytox lubricants are expensive due to their design and development. The reason it's the most expensive is that it's the best and it has been developed to be so. However, when you're spending hundreds of dollars on your custom keyboard, spending a bit more to get the perfect keyboard lube becomes common sense.
Is Krytox 205G0 same as GPL 205?
Yes, it's absolutely the same. GPL is just the acronym for General Purpose Lubricant. So this product can in fact also be called the Krytox GPL 205G0. Of course, not all GPLs are Krytox brand and there's a whole range of manufacturers out there.
What's the difference between 205G0 and 205G2?
The Krytox GPL 205 grade 0 varies from grade 2 in its thickness. However, both have the same fluid friction, so it's a matter of preference.
