International 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.
