What are Mechanical Keyboards and Switches?
Mechanical keyboards continue to grow in popularity with the rise of gaming, as the optimal keyboard can significantly impact performance and execution. Mechanical keyboards are the classic keyboards from the 1980s and 1990s, but today are made with high-quality plastic switches to facilitate tactile keystrokes. These switches consist of the keycap, the stem, and a housing case, and are spring-loaded for better pressure sensitivity than other, more common keyboards.
These increasingly essential tools are composed of complex components that require informed care and attentive upkeep to maintain effectiveness and reliability, especially due to their excessive use. Gamers use a wide variety of lubricants and greases to extend the lifetime of mechanical keyboards and switches and prolong their utility, but finding the right grease formulation can often be difficult.
High-Performance Lube and Grease for Mechanical Keyboards
As an innovative developer of high-performance lubricants and greases, InfinX specializes in the formulation of solutions that are particularly well-suited for unique applications. InfinX MRO KF205, a PFPE-based grease formulation, exhibits optimal performance properties for mechanical keyboards and switches.
Engineered using a 160 cSt K-fluid and a superior PTFE micro-powder thickener, InfinX MRO KF205 offers premium performance and exceptional longevity. InfinX MRO KF205 functions as a high-performing substitute to other leading PFPE greases, such as Krytox GPL 205, making it an excellent alternative for mechanical keyboard application. This high-quality, efficient grease is strategically formulated to deliver exceptional temperature stability and outstanding durability in chemically and thermally demanding applications, which helps ensure peak keyboard performance for longer durations.
InfinX MRO KF205 provides long-term, non-flammable lubrication in a broad range of temperatures. When compared to Krytox GPL 205, the intrinsic properties are essentially identical.
