Let’s talk about Chemolube H Special Fluid. The biggest problem with seals is that this fluid is not compatible with seal material such as a urethane based material. It is also not compatible with VITON. Seal material should be BUNA (Nitrile Based).  Also, the SHC526 may require complete change of every seal in the system so existing seal material must be verified.
