I probably would stick to silicone for door seals... graphite tends to get a little messy on a larger scale application like a door seal... I'd hate to get that stuff on on my clothes getting in and out of my car... The choice is yours...
My question is would the graphite lubricant cause damage to the door seals? When I applied the lubricant, it seemed to dry off completely . I guess it froze from the (-18 degrees celcius) cold weather.
Yea you wouldn't wanna put the graphite on the rubber part of the seals, unless it's in the velvet like area of the window tracks. But primariy keep it in the lock cylinder, and yes the silicone lubricant should look like it evaporates not unlike electronic parts cleaner. But if you run your fingers down after putting a good layer on it, it should feel slippery.
Do you need to apply silicon lubricant every year around the door seals to prevent them from freezing?
Depends on the vehicle I guess, i've never had an issue with my civic doors freezing shut, but I know guys with VWs that have all kinds of trouble. Best thing to do is clean the door jambs really well and wax them, the apply silicone spray to the rubber door seals.
