About the Unicorn Gear Grease
Having your gears lubricated and spaced properly (shimmed) is crucial to having a long lasting gearbox and reducing wear and tear. Using the correct lubricant on your gear set will keep your gears lasting longer, quieter, and resist heat build up which can lead to premature failures. Using the correct grease on your gears also keeps them lubricated longer and not leaking or splattering into other components.
Jag has developed a new line of chemicals for maintenance inside your gearbox so you can give your gun a comprehensive treatment for all the critical parts. There are three types of greases ASG has developed for just the gearbox and this particular is for your gear set. Now why can you not just use one grease for everything inside the gearbox? You can but they will break down at different rates based on what part that its applied to have different viscosity requirements.
For example, the gears have their own grease which will stick on like paste and not be thrown about as the gears spin. This is probably one of the thickest compounds you will want to use and you do not want bare metal on metal contact. Greased gears are happy gears. This cylinder grease is for coating your cylinder walls and piston O-ring. The o-ring expands when forcing air through the cylinder creating air pressure. The expansion of the o-ring gives the piston a good seal and ensures that no air is being lost when it is being pushed to drive the BB. This results in better efficiency and higher FPS for the same amount of work the gearbox is doing. Low quality airsoft guns with bad air seal will be working as hard if not harder to achieve mediocre levels of velocity. For the cylinder you will want the least amount of friction while keeping the protective properties that condition the rubber o-ring. The rapid movement and friction can cause the o-ring to get damaged so something thin that stays on the surfaces is needed. You do not want this grease to be runny and coming out of your cylinder. The last grease that ASG developed is a new kind that we have never seen before. The conductive switch paste is treatment for your gearbox switches. This in theory reduces arching, improve conductivity, and should not cook onto your switches which is just about as bad as burnt out switches. As you know, switches inside a gearbox, particularly without a MOSFET and subjected to lots of arching from high voltage batteries or lots of semi-auto use will be wearing out the switches faster than others. Though the switches are replaceable, it does mean some downtime and some gearbox work. This paste will extend the life of your switches though ultimately a MOSFET will also do that.
