Plastic Gear Lubricant

I’m working on a spider robot using low cost STEM kits. I’ve redesigned the chassis, added electronics, and phase one is working okay. I’m now working on phase two, adding more power, better motors w/ more power, new chassis, etc…

I’m looking for a safe plastic gear lubricant/ grease. Something that won’t break down plastics. One of the plastic’s is PLA. The other’s I’m unsure. They came with the spider kit.

Thanks for your response,

Hello, Dana.

We do not have any specific recommendations for a lubricant for your plastic gears. In case it is helpful, some our plastic gearmotors have POM gears and use UNI 710 universal food-grade grease.
