TriboSys 3203 | Mechanical Switch Lubricant
Nearly Exclusively Used and Recommended for Tactile and Click Mechanical Keyboards
TriboSys™ 3203 is the lowest viscosity grade 0 grease in the TriboSys line of products. Due to its lower oil viscosity, this semi-fluid grease is used almost exclusively on tactile and click switches. If you are looking for a linear switch lubricant, please refer to our Krytox GPL 205 grade 0 or TriboSys 3204 products. The lower the viscosity, the more a key can be felt, and the easier it is to apply with a brush. Depending on the type of switch and the end user’s tactile properties’ preference, it will determine which grade 0 grease is ideal for their application. Like all the grade 0 greases Miller-Stephenson offers, TriboSys 3203 is non-migrating, extremely stable, durable, and is ideal for modifying mechanical keyboards. These properties make it superior to other oils and greases due to longevity of the grease, insulation properties, and elimination of the fear of creating a short within the circuit board and other components. The result will be a new mechanical keyboard feeling “broken in” with no undesirable acoustic or tactile characteristics. Many users and enthusiasts do not like how a new mechanical keyboard feels and sounds due to the imperfections in the molding process. This grease works by normalizing the imperfections and lowering the surface energy required. As a result, the switches wearing more uniformly, extending the life of the moving components within the switches, and most importantly, giving a smooth and flawless feel and sound to the keyboard. Some negative acoustic and tactile properties that are eliminated by TriboSys 3203 are scratching sound, spring jitter, and elongate the lifespan of the switches. Benefits of TriboSys 3203 include:
- Non-migrating grease ideal for tactile and click switches
- Easy to apply and more uniform wear of the mechanical switch internals
- Makes a new mechanical keyboard feel “broken in” and elongates the life of the switches
- Elimination of “scratching” sound or any other undesirable acoustic properties
- Elimination of any undesirable tactile properties such as spring jitter
Why Choose TriboSys 3203?
Many users and mechanical keyboard enthusiasts do not like how new mechanical keyboards feel and sound and do not want to wait until the acoustic and tactile properties normalize over time. As a result, they buy used mechanical keyboards with an indeterminate lifespan left on it. By utilizing a small amount of TriboSys 3203, it will make new mechanical keyboards feel smooth and “broken in” while extending the lifespan of the moving components within the switches to avoid premature replacement of the part. Due to the oil viscosity, this grade 0 grease is utilized almost exclusively on tactile and click switches and is extremely easy to apply with a brush. The fully fluorinated grade 0 semi-fluid grease is extremely durable, stable, and non-migrating, especially for mechanical keyboard applications. For a small upfront cost, users can have a better experience with their new mechanical keyboards for a longer period of time. TriboSys 3203 is manufactured by Miller-Stephenson Chemical Company with strict quality control protocols to make sure every batch has predictable results and viscosity index to ensure that all end-users experience the same superior results.
