Our hand-lubed switches are from our lubing partner Customkeysco.com.
The sound tests that are on a given switch's product page utilize the same lubed switches.
They are lubed to our custom specifications to provide an optimal typing experience:
- Krytox 205g0 grease is applied to the switch stem and housing. Rails and sliders are lubed. For linear switches, the stem legs are lubed.
- Krytox 105 oil is applied evenly across the switch spring to eliminate spring ping and crunch.
- Clear TX 0.125/0.150mm film is applied to the switch, with the thickness depending on the switch's inherent housing tightness.
- The switch is broken in 10,000 times to simulate initial use.
