Can i used Exalt Vitamin G on my tank.
 
so i have a few tank regs that need to be rebuilt and i was wondering if i can use Exalt Vitamin G on the regs.

Probably wouldn't risk it, tank/HPA + oil = explosions. No idea on grease, but that's my take on things.

I agree 100%. What needs to be greased in the reg, anyways?

The use of a SILICONE based grease only, is fine for the o-rings inside the regulator of an HPA tank (just enough to make them 'wet' looking). Use nothing on the fill side of things.
The danger is when a flammable (hydrocarbon based) lubricant is subjected to compression/heat inside an HPA tank ... think diesel engine ... not the output end of things.

I DEFINITELY WOULD NOT use that grease without contacting Exalt. Some paintball grease/lube manufacturers are using petro-chemical bases (my TechT Gun Sav smells like transmission fluid).

On the other hand, Ray of Ninja Paintball told me I could use Smart Parts/GoG Sl33K lube on his regs.

On the regs you're fine. It's the fill nipple where it doesn't go.

Dow 111 works awesome on tank regs. It's silicone based and has a flash point way above how hot tanks will ever get. I use it all the time. It's also recommended and used by crossfire and ninja.

I used dow33 on the last reg I rebuilt. I'll be using chemplex 710 on the next one though. Someone like 3 years ago did some testing and found that it was the best reg lube (done by testing the refill rate). Cant remember anything else about the test, dow 33 was ok. Synthetic oil was the best but they only did this test on HPR's and not take regs so I would skip the oil for the tank reg.
