P-80 Lubricants – Two Year Shelf Life!

We are pleased to inform you that all sizes of P-80 lubricants, except P-80 RediLube, now have a two-year shelf life.  This change is based on in-house stability testing conducted by our VP of Research, Quality & Safety. 

The new shelf life applies to the following lubricants:

  1. P-80 Rubber Lubricant Emulsion
  2. P-80 THIX Rubber Lubricant Gel
  3. P-80 Grip-It Quick Drying Temporary Rubber Assembly Lubricant
  4. P-80 Emulsion IFC (for Incidental Food Contact Applications)
  5. P-80 THIX IFC (for Incidental Food Contact Applications)

P-80 RediLube will continue to have a one year shelf life because it is a relatively new product.  After long term stability tests are completed, P-80 RediLube’s shelf life may be increased to two years as well. Recommended storage and handling instruction are found on the Material Safety Data Sheets.  Please email us with your lot number if you need a Certificate of Analysis certifying a 24-month shelf life for your specific lot.

P-80 Grip-it Quick-Dry Assembly Aid

P80 Grip-itP-80 Grip-it is a truly unique multifunctional product designed specifically for the assembly of rubber articles. Not only does P-80 Grip-it have impressive lubrication, it provides adhesiveness for the mated parts. P-80 Grip-it delivers those benefits using a proprietary, water-based technology that further offers excellent rubber compatibility, ease of use, and no danger to employees.

Whenever a rubber article is manipulated, assembled, or installed, the use of a proper lubricant is crucial. Traditional oil lubricants can lead to swelling, softening, twisting, or slipping of rubber after assembly. Soap and substitute lubricants lead to rolled, torn, misaligned, or partially installed parts. P-80 Grip-it solves this problem by delivering a thin, lubricating film over the inherently water-repellent rubber surface. The film allows for easy and proper assembly – reducing friction on average by 40%. P-80 Grip-it’s properties continue to work after the parts are installed. As P-80 Grip-it dries, its film becomes tacky which helps the parts remain attached. This process can occur in as little as 15 minutes.

Since P-80 Grip-it is water-based, it cannot be over-applied. Moreover, P-80 Grip-it has no health, physical, or environmental hazards. An independent toxicological laboratory tested P-80 Grip-it and found it to be a non-hazardous product.

P-80 Grip-it is part of the P-80 product line that was awarded the 2012 Frost and Sullivan Product Leadership Award for automotive assembly lubricants. P-80 Grip-it serves other industries including appliance, marine, aerospace, pumps, and recreational and sports equipment.

NJMEP’s Made In New Jersey Participant, International Products Corporation (IPC), Hosts Lt. Governor Guadagno

DSC00241International Products Corporation (IPC) in Burlington, a participant in NJMEP’s Made in New Jersey program, hosted a visit from Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno. The visit kicked off her 2014 statewide tour highlighting New Jersey businesses that have a strong international client base. IPC received $1,800 in STEP grant awards to support its participation in the International Trade Administration’s US DOC Gold Key Services program, which assists US manufacturers develop a global trading program or to expand into new markets.
IPC is an award winning manufacturer of high quality specialty cleaners and lubricants. Its products are manufactured in a safe, zero discharge facility and are marketing proudly as MADE IN THE USA. The company reaches its international markets through a combination of distributors, direct sales, and internet marketing techniques as well as through IPCW Inc. its wholly owned subsidiary that serves as a sales and distribution office for its products in the UK and European Continent.

The State awarded the STEP Grant funds to IPC to cover the cost of the Gold Key programs that its President Kathy Wyrofsky attended in Beijing and in Seoul. Both programs resulted in new distributor agreements and sales (two new Chinese Distributors, and one new distributor in S. Korea). “In addition,” Ms. Wyrofsky explained, “We received some additional funding to cover the costs of a Corporate report on a company in Germany that we considered hiring to promote our products. We did not however, come to terms with this company, but found the report to be most detailed and helpful.”

“The Lt. Governor’s visit gave us the opportunity to discuss challenges to exporting for New Jersey companies. These include travel costs, meeting foreign government regulations and requirements (such as the *REACH initiative in the EU), legal costs, competition, and language and cultural differences,” Ms. Wyrofsky added. “We are extremely grateful for the support and expert guidance we have received from the state and it was indeed an honor to have Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno visit our company,” said Wyrofsky.

International Products Corporation has received two awards over the past two years for its line of P-80® Rubber Lubricants. In 2012, they were the recipient of the 2012 Frost & Sullivan North American Product Leadership Aware for automotive assembly lubricants. P-80 received recognition again in 2013 from the Suppliers’ Partnership for the Environment for Demonstrating Environmental Innovation in the Manufacturing Process.

For manufacturers interested in exporting, NJMEP offers ExporTech™, a collaboration between the MEPs, U.S. Export Assistance Centers, and other partners including District Export Councils, State Trade Economic and Development, Ex-Im Bank and SBA. The program is intended for C level executives, who are both new-to-export companies and those that have done some exporting, but have not fully exploited global opportunities.

All manufacturers and importers of chemicals must identify and manage risks linked to the substances they manufacture and market.

P-80® Grip-it eases the installation of foam grips

P-80® Grip-it Quick-Drying Hose Lubricant is a unique assembly aid formulated to provide temporary lubrication making rubber easy to install, remove, or manipulate. P-80 Grip-it provides enough lubricity for assembly when wet, but because it does not contain silicone or other persistent ingredients, the slipping action goes away and dries tacky to help the part stay in place ─ making it a perfect lubricant for foam grip installation.

Custom foam grip manufacturer EEZER®, recommends P-80 Grip-it for foam grip assembly and has created a video of the assembly.

P-80 Grip-it dries quickly to allow the natural tight fit of rubber or foam to return. Although P-80 Grip-it does not contain an adhesive, when it dry it provides resistance that helps keep parts in place.

P-80 lubricants are available in industrial and incidental food contact (IFC) formulas for a wide range of assembly applications and manufacturing involving rubber and soft plastic parts.

All of IPC’s products are Made in the U.S.A. and are readily available worldwide through their network of global distributors. For more information or free samples, visit www.ipcol.com or call 609-386-8770.

P-80Emulsion_1&4ltrInternational Products Corporation (IPC) received the SP Award for Demonstrating Environmental Innovation in the Manufacturing Process for its environmentally friendly P-80® Temporary Rubber Assembly Lubricants, which provide a safe and easy way to improve assembly operations. IPC’s P-80® products are water-based, non-toxic, non-flammable, and easy to dispose of. The P-80® lubricants help companies in the automotive and other industries globally to reduce part breakage or failure, prolong part life, reduce worker injuries and reduce their environmental impact.

P-80® lubricants provide a high degree of lubricity when wet, but because they do not contain silicon or other persistent ingredients, once dry the slipping action goes away.  P-80® lubricants are also free of petroleum distillates, so they will not dry, crack or otherwise harm rubber parts.  P-80® lubricants are compatible with most metals, plastics and natural and synthetic elastomers.

International Products Corporation (IPC) is committed to improving the environment. Unlike many other lubricants, P-80® products are water-based, non-toxic, non-flammable, and easy to dispose of.  P-80® is NFPA-rated at 0-0-0.  Most of the products are biodegradable.  Spills can be cleaned up with a cloth or sponge. Soap and water will remove P-80® from hands or clothing.  All P-80 products undergo full health and safety testing by independent laboratories and test data is available upon request.

The award presentation took place at the Suppliers Partnership for the Environment (SP) first annual membership awards at an evening reception on June 26 as part of the first Summit on Accelerating Innovation hosted at Oakland University’s Meadow Brook Hall in Rochester, MI.

IPC committed to manufacturing in the USA

bct3International Products Corporation was featured in article published in a local newspaper (Burlington County Times) that discusses their continued commitment to manufacture quality cleaners and P-80 temporary assembly lubricants in their USA facility.

BURLINGTON TOWNSHIP — While some companies are crowing about bringing manufacturing back to the USA, others — specifically some small manufacturing firms in New Jersey — never left. In fact, they continue to defy the odds and not only survive but thrive.

Ask Kathy Wyrofsky, president of the International Products Corp.

The company, which has fewer than 50 employees, makes specialty cleaners and temporary assembly lubricants in a 20,000-square-foot building in an industrial park in Burlington Township.bct4

IPC, as it’s commonly known, has been around since 1923. Wyrofsky’s father, Charles Granito Sr., who’s now 75, took over the company from investors in 1980 and moved it from Trenton to Burlington Township in 1990.

“There are a lot of challenges to being a small business and a manufacturer and exporter today,” Wyrofsky said. “The competition from overseas is difficult. But I believe high quality products are recognized worldwide. I think we can be competitive and we are competitive, and if you watch your costs and promote well, you can do business all over the world.”

Her company has proven that, Wyrofsky said.

IPC makes the cleaners and lubricants with a line of what it calls environmentally friendly aqueous chemicals that are used in industrial, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, food processing and laboratory cleaning applications.bct2

Using raw materials found here in the United States enables the company to produce “high-quality products that I believe are recognized worldwide,” she said.

Wyrofsky, who wouldn’t discuss revenue for the privately held company or name any IPC customers, did say major car manufacturers use the cleaning product.

The work force is small, but company officials said the turnover is low.

“These are great jobs,” said mechanical engineer Charles Granito Jr., Wyrofsky’s brother and a company executive. “You are making a great product.”

Specialization and quality seem to be the theme of New Jersey manufacturers’ survival.

“In all, New Jersey manufacturers still employ 247,000 workers and indirectly provide jobs for tens of thousands more,” said Philip Kirschner, president of the New Jersey Business and Industry Association.

Granito put it this way.

“We are very customer-driven,” said the Moorestown resident. “We want to make sure the customers get the product as soon as possible.”

Wyrofsky said their family-run company is very aware of the need to stay competitive overseas.

bct1In 1984, IPC opened IPCW Inc. a subsidiary operating in London to distribute IPC product throughout Europe. IPC also has distributors in China, India, Korea, Japan and Taiwan, the company said.

“U.S. manufacturers are getting a lot of respect,” Wyrofsky said, noting that IPC took part in “Made in New Jersey,” an event sponsored by NJBIA in Trenton this spring.

NJBIA’s Kirschner was optimistic about the outlook for manufacturers such as IPC in New Jersey.

“Manufacturing is still 10 percent of the New Jersey economy,” Kirschner said. “It employs a quarter of a million people … and another 150,000 people in industries related to manufacturing. Manufacturing has really grown and stabilized here in the state of New Jersey, and we think it’s an industry that should be paid more attention to and (that) will bring more dividends to the state’s economy.”

All of IPC’s products are manufactured in Burlington New Jersey and are readily available worldwide through their network of global distributors. For more information or free samples, visit http://www.ipcol.com or call 609-386-8770.
