  • Misaligned parts
  • Damaged parts
  • Injured workers (sore muscles, slippage, repetitive stress injury)

If so, our P-80® Temporary Rubber Lubricants can help by:

  • Reducing installation force by minimizing surface tension
  • Allowing for tighter fitting part design
  • Improving product performance
  • Increasing production rates by allowing for faster assembly
  • Reducing worker injuries by decreasing the assembly force required
  • Reducing part rejection

Why Use Rubber Lubricants?

Characteristics Provide superior temporary lubrication, are environmentally friendly,  safe for workers, and available in many biodegradable formulas Provide poor lubrication, contain high VOCs, may be flammable, and poses possible health risks Provide inconsistent, nominal lubrication and may reactivate when wet Provide lubrication but is often incompatible with materials, leaves a heavy residue, and sustains lubrication

Additionally, the temporary nature of our P-80 rubber lubricants puts them in a category by themselves, as these lubricants will not reactivate once they dry and will not dry out rubber.

Our Line of Lubricants

All 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:
