Plastic Lubrication Recommendations?

Hello. I am not a contractor or an expert of the trade, but I am wondering if any of you can recommend a good lubricant for plastic to plastic contact. It is subject to repetitive movement, and the pieces are not very big. The environment is also a little dusty. I know there are a lot of lubricants for metal. Are there any good lubricants for plastic you could recommend for this application?

I would have tried a spray that provides a dry resin-bounded coating of PTFE.It's not harmful to plastic, and it will reduse the problem with a dusty environment.

Try the simplest first, can you use water? The more information you give up the better the answers will be. temperature, food contamination, load, material type, screw, reservoir etc.

I tried a dry Teflon based lubricant like Lars suggested, and it works great so far.

I would like to thank both of you for your generous help. I appreciate it.

"AMSOIL Silicone Spray may be used on
applications for which light-duty or silicone
lubricants are recommended, including plastic
slides..."
