Looking for a lubricant to purchase that is Liquid Graphite . This is for oiling Circuit Breakers at work . We have use this product called Graphit Schmierol made by Brown Boveri. I have seen it in the spray cans but the guys at work don't like it . LOL
Just very hard to come by and expensive.
I'm hoping theres something else out there as replacement thats readily available. I don't see anything at the big box stores. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong areas / fields / work environments,

We used a product called Neolube on the submarine to provide lubrication, though we used it on valves, not breakers. It's colloidal graphite suspended in isopropyl alcohol. You paint it on the surface and the alcohol evaporates, leaving the layer of graphite. We used it in nuclear applications, so it works great. I found a 2oz bottle for $20, though, so this may be more than you wanted to spend. However, a little goes a very long way.

Mark , I'm ok with the spray ,but no ones seems to like the spray can graphite at work. They thinks its paint .LOL

Chis I looked at the Neolube , definitely a liquid.
As long as this product can be used with an eye dropper instead of a brush , then it would be OK.

Thanks
