We strongly recommend to clean the rails before lubrication. Put a zip tie through the very last holes to ensure the block can not escape the rail. Fill a glass with some grease solvent and soak the blocks for at least an hour. Rinse the blocks and wipe the rail from any residue grease with a lint-free cloth.
We recommend to lubricate the ball races and bearing balls with grease, and cover the entire rail itself in a thin coat of grease to prevent oxidation. Recommended lubricants (in no particular order):
- CPC Lubrication Kit 18G
- Fuchs Planto Multispray S
- Fuchs Lagermeister BF2
- Mobilux EP 1 or EP 2
- HIWIN G05
Note: lubricants containing MoS2 or graphite must not be used.
