Default Good lubricant for assembly

I'm trying to find a good lubricant for assembly, available in Europe. Any ideas? Currently using regular vaseline.

I understand vaseline is not good for composite structures .

I use a silicon lubricant spray, but any light oil will do.

If the manufacturer specifies a lubricant, use it. If the manual just says something like "Use a non-cold coagulating grease" Aeroshell 33 is good stuff. Hell to get off of your clothes though.

This request comes up periodically; you could search old threads for the long and very passionate responses :-)

I like Superlube, which is a synthetic grease that is very temperature stable over the range that we tend to fly sailplanes. Great for main pins and other fittings. There's also a spray lube from the same manufacturer for those drives and other fittings that call for it.

Quick check on Amazon DE shows it's available there.

Use Vaseline on your girlfriend if you can't find better stuff in an emergency situation.

For important things like your glider, Super Lube is better, although I also like Exxon/Mobil synthetic grease.
