/ Will WD40 or GT85 'eat' Pebax?
People use it on their bikes all the time, never heard of it eating the plastic parts on bikes.
And there is plenty of threads on various forums about WD40 so i would hazard a guess and say its safe, as i have never seen this used as an argument against it.

Firstly I'm not aware of any Pebax on bikes and different plastics react to different things.
Secondly I ain't hazarding no guesses on Ģ440 boots!
But thanks for your opinion all the same!
why not just use some silicon spray?
As far as I'm aware WD40 is bad for Pebax (and other pastics), use a teflon based spray (I think GT85 is teflon based??)
Call Scarpa UK to ask?
> why not just use some silicon spray?
I would use silicone spray, I don't think you could spray silicon as used in computer chips etc.lol
Mr Sheen is inoccuous enough & will improve the action of the boots with silicon
And it will indeed shine umpteen things clean.
Yep, especially sticky/ squeaky boots.
I wouldn't use any spray with oil (GT40, WD40 etc). Mr Sheen will stop the squeak and won't trash the boots; without splashing out for silicone spray
