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. 

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

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.

It slowed down my gan 356 x(it was strangely loose) and I like it. But 10cc bottle is hard to squeeze. I always manage it anyway.

Great lube, bizzare smell

I still give CX 5 stars caus ei like the lube, but the scent has a bizzare after scent that smells like my grandma's perfume. Still love the lube and will buy more when I run out

It's good

One drop makes the cube faster, but then two starts to slow it down. It's nice and it works, but it doesn't last quite as long as I expected. Also smells very good

Perfect for my main (DaYan TengYun v2)!

It did what it was supposed to and made it a lot more controllable without making it gummy. Additionally, it made the TengYun v2 a lot smoother and cushiony. It also made it smell really nice. 10/10, I would recommend using it for any cube that is too fast.

Great lube great scent

Enough said.


Compound X will make your cube a tiny bit slower but much more controllable and a bit sandy. Also, just ONE DROP in a 3x3 will make your cube smell delicious while turning!


Angstrom Compound X


It slows down the cube. It doesn’t make it sluggish though.

Angstorm Compound X

It works just how it’s supposed to, but you have to squeeze the bottle reeaallly hard to get any of it out, but other than that, it’s just what you’d expect.


It does exactly as advertised, I love it, I was just surprised that it actually slowed down the cube while feeling exactly the same.
