Product Description

Compound X is a water-based lube designed for faster puzzles developed by Angstrom Research. Compound X uses the attraction of charged silicone polymers to slow down puzzles at the molecular level. This slowing effect lasts longer than traditional silicone, and also doesn’t result in a gummy silicone feeling. 

Compound X should not to be applied to hardware. Water based lubes should not be applied to the screws or springs as this will likely lead to rust issues. 

This lube is scented with a sweet pomegranate aroma. 

If you are curious about trying this lube, check out our 1cc sampler size here.

Note: There may be some variation in color due to the processes involved in manufacturing, but the formulation and properties are the same. 

For best results, apply two drops, and break in thoroughly. To clean, gently wipe off your puzzle pieces with a damp cloth. 

Disclaimer: Although the lube is perfectly safe to touch, please do not ingest it, set it on fire, or expose it to extremely high temperatures.

Comes with:

  • 10cc or 3cc bottle of Compound X

Our Promise to You

All of our products are guaranteed to be free of defects, or we will replace and reship at no cost to you. Please contact us within 4 weeks (28 days) past the delivery date to report any issues with items you have purchased.

Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop". This is when one or more parts of a puzzle pop out without any damage actually being done to any of the pieces. This also occurs from time to time during normal usage. Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.

The corners on 2x2 puzzles should not be twisted as doing so may snap the piece. Damage caused by corner twisting is not considered to be a defect.

Compound X more like Compound yes

This lube is amazing esp for me as i love slower cubes this lube is really good for controlling your cube. Personally, I love how it is a water-based lube that makes your cube slower. I loved this when i used it with mystic it gave the cube a controlled and plushy feeling. An added plus is it makes ur cube smell amazing and the lube is super long lasting which means i can cube for hours on end without worrying my cube becoming dry.

It does what it says it does

Ok. This lube does exactly what it is advertised to do. It slows downs puzzles while barely adding gumminess and has a smell. It's just not for me. The smell gets old really quick and I just wish there was an odorless version.

It's good but bad smell

It works Verry well, it makes the cube slow and not draggy slow, only the smell is not my favourite and my mom even puked once, but assure if thet it's Verry good

Pretty decent.

Didn't slow down the cube as much as I thought it would and it gives the cube a really good aroma.

Very Good

I love this lube. It does exactly what its supposed to do, it slows the cube down without making it gummy. I also love how it is pomegranate scented.

Thomas M. (United States)
Good at what it does.

I got this for my YuXin Little Magic M as it was a bit to fast for me. I put a small bit of lube in and it made it much more controllable. Good for the price also.
