  1. ‘Tis the Season for Sharing

    Comments Off on ‘Tis the Season for Sharing

    During the month of December, most of us are busy shopping, cooking, decorating and attending parties. Our days are filled with finding the perfect gift for our loved ones, baking dozens of cookies and deciding upon the best outfit to wear to each holiday event. Hours are spent with our families trimming the tree, lighting a menorah or celebrating the seven core principles of Kwanza. Regardless of which holiday we celebrate, most of us are engaged in a multitude of seasonal activities.

    It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. But, it’s always important to remember those who may need a little help at this time of year. This year, the employees at International Products Corporation (IPC) have banded together to give back to our community and help our neighbors who may be struggling to provide their families with a happy holiday.

    In celebration of the holidays, IPC employees have contributed to two worthwhile causes: Toys for Tots and The Foodbank of South Jersey. Employees have generously filled our donation boxes with an array of toys and food to help those in need. 

    The mission of Toys for Tots is to collect new unwrapped toys and distribute those toys to less fortunate children at Christmas. The primary goal of the program is to help bring the joy of Christmas and send a message of hope to America’s less fortunate children.

    The Foodbank of South Jersey provides food to people in need throughout Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties in NJ. Their mission is to make the holidays (and every day) hunger-free by providing nutritious, high-quality food to those who cannot provide for themselves.

    All of us at IPC are grateful that we can celebrate with our families, showering our children with gifts and filling our tables with mouth-watering feasts. Knowing that our efforts may have helped less fortunate families feel that same joy is the best gift we can wish for this holiday season.

    Best wishes to all for a joyous holiday season!

  2. Stop Struggling … See How Temporary Lubricants Make Rubber Assembly Easier!

    Comments Off on Stop Struggling … See How Temporary Lubricants Make Rubber Assembly Easier!

    Have you ever struggled with rubber assembly? If so, you’ve probably experienced for yourself the excessive force needed to properly install hoses, seals, gaskets, O-rings and many other rubber parts. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone came up with a better way?

    Your wishes have been granted! Temporary rubber assembly lubricants were developed specifically to solve this common problem. Temporary rubber lubricants can ease assembly processes and significantly reduce the force needed to assemble rubber parts.

    So, how effective are temporary assembly lubricants? Why not see for yourself? International Products Corporation (IPC), manufacturer of P-80® temporary rubber assembly lubricants, put together this short video showing the reduction in force obtained by using P-80® Emulsion to assemble a rubber hose.


    The results of this test are dramatic. A 63% reduction of force was achieved by using P-80 Emulsion for this assembly. A digital force gauge manufactured by Mecmesin was used for measurement. The amount of force needed to assemble a dry piece of hose was 196 Newtons. IPC’s test lab then lubricated the same hose with P-80 Emulsion and the amount of force needed for the same assembly dropped to 72 Newtons. That represents a reduction of force of 124 Newtons or 63%.

    What are some of the advantages of reducing the force required to install rubber parts?
    • Allow for tighter fitting part design
    • Improve product performance
    • Increase production rates by allowing for faster assembly
    • Reduce worker injuries by decreasing the assembly force required
    • Reduce part rejection

    The next time you’re having trouble with hoses, seals, gaskets, O-Rings or any other rubber part, remember to use a temporary rubber assembly lubricant and watch the parts slide into place with much less force. Temporary lubricants are ideal for rubber assembly because they reduce the friction needed to assemble parts.
