        You could inquire with the seller about temp ratings. Since they
        spec it for the group, you know it's good for those temps, which
        would include hot water and steam o-ring applications (IMO) Just
        askin but what's the hottest temp in an hx espresso machine, 255
        degrees f? If I was a betting man, I would think this group lube
        would stand up to any application for lube on an espresso machine

                you know it's a good product. I trust what they have to say although
                I'm sure there are a few enviromentalist that would take exception.
                Sorry, but I digress*


                And the price at $17 for 5 ounces is cheaper in one sense than the
                one ounce tube of Saeco lube for $5. I'm not sure how fast I'll go
                through 5 ounces though but Murphy's Law says if I buy the one ounce
                tube, I'll run out when I most need it=:-)

                *Dow was pretty big in MI where I lived years ago. One of their
                products I have some familiarity with is a solar panel film called
                Tedlar. At the time when I was using it (early mid eighties) it was
                the leader in the field. Best transmissivity, on and on
