I know a bunch of people missed out on the 3M FP deal posted today. If you're using for brake jobs, then this Permatex Ceramic is one of the most highly recommended for the extreme heat conditions of brake parts. When I was looking, I noticed today S&S price of $12.80 was only a few cents more than I paid back in 2015. Advance wants $20 and Walmart wants $16... $12.80 was the lowest current price I could find on this.
  • 100% synthetic formula with ceramic solids forming a premium quality brake lubricant
  • Resistant to moisture, corrosion and contaminants - will not wash out
  • Silences brake noise across a much wider temperature range and maintains lubricant integrity
  • Lasts longer and easily outperforms ordinary caliper greases and traditional disc brake quiet products
  • Suggested applications include disc brake caliper hardware, pistons, brushings, rubber sleeves and seals
Product description
Size Pack of 1

Permatex Ceramic Extreme Brake Parts Lubricant is a 100% synthetic lubricant containing real ceramic solids for extreme performance under the most critical braking conditions. A purple, non-melting formula, this premium lubricant is Permatex's longest lasting, most temperature resistant way to silence brake noise such as squealing and chattering. Also effective in preventing long bolt and sleeve seizing and galling; excellent on rolling and sliding surfaces operating in wet or dry conditions from -65 degrees Fahrenheit to 3000 degrees Fahrenheit. This product assures that critical brake parts remain lubricated throughout brake pad life. Resistant to corrosion and contaminants, it will not wash out. Compatible with internal/external brake rubber and plastic hardware, including ethylene-propylene rubber. From special-mission, job-specific lubricants, protectants and dressings, to the rigors of heavy-duty needs, count on Permatex to bring you reliability and problem-solving solutions that extend the life of your equipment.

This Stuff (ceramic) for all metal to metal contacts
SIL-GLYDE (anything involving rubber/plastic)

Matter closed

---------------
The above info is inaccurate - Permatex, itself, advises in its specifications that this product (purple "ceramic" grease) is designed for metal to metal contact, but is SAFE for rubber as well. The above information is simply inaccurate and is only the opinion of the person posting the info. In addition, Permatex Ceramic (purple) is designed for high the high temps of vehicle disc brakes, and is able to withstand temps up to 3,000° F. The product recommended by previous poster is only recommended for a max temp of 400° F.

Please see Permatex's own specs for yourself @ https://441py33rout1ptjxn2lupv31-.../24125.pdf

Not for use on rubber, metal to metal contact only. Silicone brake grease recommended for contact with rubber parts such as 80653 Permatex Silicone Ceramic Extreme Brake Caliper Lube.

Read the customer questions. Permatex has replied to people saying do not use on rubber parts. The amazon description may be wrong, some responders suggest amazon copied the description from the silicon version.

Well, you know Bristol-Myers makes Excedrin and sells Regular Excedrin and Migraine Excedrin. Many people prefer the Migraine, but have no idea it's the exact same pill - just different marketing... as in *exactly* the same pill formulation.

The above said, I'm not saying the two formulations aren't different, but isn't it more likely than "Amazon copying wrong description" that this is really safe on rubber parts as the description (provided by the manufacturer) states? Note that it doesn't say that it's recommend that you use this on rubber parts, but it's safe to come in contact with rubber parts. You may wish to check a different forum if you want to get into the petroleum based chemical breakdowns of each formulation, but everyone that has done a brake job knows caliper guide pins have rubber bushings. The images for this product from Permatex CLEARLY show THIS lubricant being slathered all over a guide pin that will obviously come in contact with a rubber guide pin bushing. So, you tell me... and note, the other formulation you reference is considerably more expensive than this formulation (at least at the sale price).

Yup, wanted to chime in here. Do NOT use this on rubber, or anything other than metal to metal contact points. The silicone ceramic grease is the better all purpose lubricant and can be used on rubber and metal.

On my last brake job, I researched these brake parts lubes, and what I recall was to stay away from the purple Permatex for the rubber boots. Their orange one called "Permatex 80653 Silicone Extreme Brake Parts Lubricant" can be used on everything including rubber, but it's $24.

That is 100% correct, use Silglyde or be prepared to do it again when the pins seize.

You've got to be kidding... I've linked the pic from Permatex showing them using this exact purple lube on guide pins! What more proof do you want? I've already personally used this exact lube on all my own cars' guide pins, front and rear wheel - works great, and never had to replace a rubber boot or seal. The description even says its safe on rubber... please provide your citation showing this is unsafe on rubber when Permatex, itself, states its safe...

ONLY in very hot summer afternoons, my SUV's brake PEDAL does not return after I release my foot from the pedal. This does not happen in the summer mornings, or other seasons. I changed the brake pads myself and had dealer flushed the brake fluid last year, but the problem is still there. Will lubricating the guide pin, or the surface of the rubber boots, help on my car?

there seems to be a 0.5oz tube version of the silicon for $8 and enough for one car.

Since you asked: https://www.permatex.com/products...bricant-2/
Clearly says metal-to-metal contact only, and says it twice.
