    Nylog claims both Red and Blue formulas are miscible(mix-able) with the system oil it's to be used on.

    JP, how can you be sure that HFC Nylog is compatible in a CFC mineral oil system?

    Your also putting it on flares, gaskets, threads. Not directly into the system

    Unless you have some documentation I have not, I would not be willing to go on "Faith-alone" just because it's a miniscule amount.

    You're being ridiculous. I've used it for 3 years now with no trouble.

    I'll have to agree with gravity. The above quote is just ridiculous!
    Miniscule amount for what?
    Are you putting the bottle in the system?
    Is leak lock compatable?

    Nylog for HFC is based on POE oil. As we know, POE oil is miscible with CFC, HCFC, and HFC refrigerants. So yes, the HFC Nylog is compatible with any refrigerant.

    I went to the website and it explains a lot. Says use blue stuff for everything if you want. Like gravity said, lot less tacky. Doesn't seem to clog up as much. Also says to use it under and over teflon on pipe threads. Has anyone used it for this purpose? As a pipe thread compound that is.

    The Blue Label Nylog can be used universally or specifically with an HFC bound synthetic oil system.
    http://refrigtech.com/Product/Manuals/NylogManual.pdf

    Blue Label is completely miscible in POE or PAG lubricants and exhibits good

    stability in both mineral and alkyl benzene oils

    Links to and quotes from the manufacturer's information on Nylog.

    Relax, dude.

    No offense was intended...just curios if you had information that differed from what I have read concerning cross contamination.
