Do O rings need lubrication?

Lubricants are commonly used on O-rings and other elastomeric seals. Using a grease or an oil at assembly helps protect the O-ring from damage by abrasion, pinching, or cutting. It helps protect some polymers from degradation by atmosphere, and its presence helps extend the service life of the O-ring.
