Based on my research, there is only one maker of Neo-lube. It's a trade marked product. There are 2 versions, the one MicroMark and PBL sell is version #2. MicroMark sells its version in the original packaging from the manufacturer. PBL repackages the product that it sells. But, it's all the same stuff, Neo-Lube #2.

I probably won't be getting any since I never need to order from any
of those places, and I'm not going to order just one item. Too bad
Frank at Sergent Engineering doesn't carry it, I could just buy some
when I order couplers.

What is Neolube
and where do I get it?
Update on Sharon for BlackStone cars (RNB87K). After
building the 6 Sharon couplers decided to mount a
set in a BlackStone High Side Gondola. Perfect fit!
No filing required and did not need to ream hole
They are noticeably smaller than Type D and Kadee
Operation in limited testing is smooth and no ball
drop issues like I had on previous type D without
Neolube. when coupling seems to mate more reliably
without excessive force.
Have not tried to weather or paint them yet.
Thinking neo-lube might present a challenge to paint
sticking. Will try Bar Mills or AIM powders to see
if these work reliably.

work well without polishing. Assembly time about 1
min each using the jig. These are even easier than
the type D I was doing.
