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.

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.

Didn't slow down the cube as much as I thought it would and it gives the cube a really good aroma.
So cool loved
Angstrom Compound X
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.
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.
It is really thick and hard to get out of the 10cc bottle. So I me
I mixed in some dnm so it can come out faster.
The 10cc bottle is hard to dispose. It has effective slowness though. Will probably get more if I run out, but the 3cc bottle next time. Great lube.
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.
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
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
