I agree with Matthew. Iwata products have never let me down.



Does Iwata Medea airbrush cleaner work OK with Vallejo?


Yes, it works very well. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Vallejo airbrush cleaner also has a built in lubricant. It is very much like a "CLP" used in the firearm industry.

Iwata Medea SuperLube will also fit the bill.

Yup,
Just say it three times: "Needlejuice, Needlejuice, Needlejuice" Seriously, I have been using it for a couple of years now and it really helps keep the airbrush in good working order.

Badger Regdab needle juice will do just fine.

I have a brand new Grex airbrush. The instruction manual indicates to lubricate the airbrush needle with 'Aerolube'. I googled 'Aerolube' and there is a site by that name but lists several lubricants but none of them appeared to specifically refer to airbrush applications.
Where can I get 'Aerolube'? Does anyone recommend an equal product suitable for Grex airbrushes?
