ohhh baby powder? is it cornstarch based?

Youtube videos don't lie, but how do you know they are correct?

The seals on our rigs are rubber. That means they could be any variety of 2 or 3 actual compounds, all sort-of requiring different things.

Take a look at this: http://303products.com/product-uses/rubber

303 Aerospace Protectant maybe the best engineered material for rubber seals.

I spray my seals 1-2 times a year with 303. Same process I've used for years and never had to replace a seal. Spray a lite coat on and wipe the excess off.

Where do you get your 303? I've looked at several retailers around here and haven't seen it. I could order it, but it'd be nice to just be able to pick it up while I'm out...
