Hi, any suggestions on what works best as a lubricant for HIPS ? I’ve got some plastic on plastic moving parts. They’re low load / low speed but feel like they could benefit from a thin layer of something. Finding very little on google. A couple mentions of silicone and lithium. Would regular hydrocarbons work or do they dissolve HIPS parts ? Thanks for any suggestions.

Graphite should work well with no effect on the plastic.

I have used Super Lube (both the Synthetic and Silicone products) on HIPS parts with no ill effects. Here’s a compatibility chart:

CoParaTech and ScottW, thank you both very much. Just what I was needing.
