Dishwashers, washers and dryers, refrigerators, mixers, blenders, and many other appliances have rubber or soft plastic components such as hoses, O-rings, seals, grommets, plugs and more.

The slip resistance of these parts makes assembly difficult. P-80® temporary rubber assembly lubricants significantly reduce friction helping these parts slide easily into place.

P-80 assists in the assembly and/or repair of:

  • Washers
  • Dryers
  • Dishwashers
  • Refrigerators
  • Freezers
  • Mixers
  • Blenders
  • Commercial laundry equipment
  • Ice machines
  • Food service equipment

Typical uses:

  • O-rings
  • Hoses
  • Grommets
  • Seals
  • Pumps
  • Sensors

Our Line of Lubricants

applianceAll of our P-80® Lubricants are environmentally friendly, non-hazardous, and non-flammable, making them safe for workers and most plastics, rubbers, and metals. P-80® is available in four ready-to-use industrial formulas, as well as two special formulas that are registered with the NSF as H1 lubricants approved for incidental food contact applications:

The charts below are designed to assist in determining the best P-80® formula for different applications. Each P-80® formula has unique properties designed to meet the needs of specific types of rubber and soft plastic assembly applications. For many assemblies, only one P-80® formula may resolve the assembly challenge. In other instances, more than one P-80® formula might work well. Some facilities may approve and use more than one formula depending on the application.
