Tetra Gun grease
Dave, we used white lithium grease on the O-rings of our down hole tools when i actually worked and got a pay check. The tools with a double o-ring seal were rated to 20,000 psi if I remember. But the o-rings only made one trip into the well, changed them every run.
Free advice is worth exactly what you payed for it.

I forgot about that, I remember years ago at work they would use it on some rubber seals. I'll have to look into it.
Thanks Bob.

From wikipedia ...Bob
It was also recommended by Porsche in maintenance training documentation for lubrication (after cleaning) of "Weatherstrips on Doors, Hood, Tailgate, Sun Roof". The publication states "…before applying a new coat of lubricant…" "Only acid-free lubricants may be used, for example: glycerine, Vaseline, tire mounting paste, etc. These lubricants should be rubbed in, and excessive lubricant wiped off with a soft cloth."
