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.

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
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.
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!

It slows down the cube. It doesn’t make it sluggish though.
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.
I have used this lube on several of my 3x3s and 4x4s and it sure helps, & pairs nicely with DNM-37. Just one
caveat: when using on bigger cubes (6x6 & 7x7), it seems to focus on central pieces and can be a real drag
I put this in my GAN X V2 and it slowed it down and made it a lot smoother, which is what I bough it for. It also smells really, really good. I let my brother smell the cube I lubed with this and now he is randomly picking up my cubes and smelling. Good if you want to slow down your cube just a bit.
