A Multi-Disciplinary Engineering Approach to Selecting Assembly Lubricants


International Products Corporation (IPC) is giving a presentation at the SAE World Congress Experience at the COBO Center in Detroit, Michigan on Wednesday, April 11th at 2:30 PM (EST). Thomas McGuckin, IPC’s VP of Research, Quality and Safety, will discuss “A Multi-Disciplinary Engineering Approach to Selecting Assembly Lubricants”. The presentation will focus on the benefits of using assembly lubricants in manufacturing, and will discuss how Design Engineers, Lubricant Engineers and Ergonomic Engineers all work together to select assembly lubricants. Show attendees are encouraged to attend the presentation. Visit IPC at booth #6019 for expert technical support and advice on ways to ease rubber assembly operations.

 P-80® Temporary Rubber Assembly Lubricants significantly reduce the force required to assemble rubber and plastic parts.  Six unique water-based formulas are truly temporary – once dry the lubrication is gone.  IPC’s on-site laboratory offers FREE technical assistance and compatibility testing.

  • Significantly reduce the force required for assembly
  • Reduce part damage
  • Reduce worker slippage and musculoskeletal injuries
  • Temporary – once dry, the lubrication is gone
  • Non-toxic, biodegradable
  • Ready-to-use

The slip resistant nature of rubber or soft plastic components makes assembly difficult. P-80® Temporary Rubber Assembly Lubricants significantly reduce friction, helping parts slide easily into place. P-80® lubricants are water-based and do not contain solvents, silicon or petroleum distillates, so they are temporary and compatible with many materials.

IPC manufactures specialty chemical products, including cleaners and assembly lubricants.  Their P-80® Temporary Rubber Assembly Lubricants are uniquely formulated for the installation of belts, bushings, grips, grommets, hoses, O-rings, seals, and other parts. All of IPC’s products are made in the USA, and are sold worldwide.

Go Easy with P-80 for Appliance Assembly

Dishwashers, washers and dryers, refrigerators, mixers, blenders, and many other appliances are composed of numerous rubber and soft plastic parts. Hoses, O-rings, seals, grommets, plugs, belts and valves are just some of the many parts that can be found in common household appliances. CommonApplianceAssmbly

Rubber’s slip resistant nature can make appliance assembly difficult. Using a temporary rubber lubricant during assembly can make appliance manufacturing much easier. Maintenance and repair of common appliances is also less difficult when temporary assembly lubricants are used to replace belts, O-rings, hoses and seals.

P-80® lubricants are water-based, and do not contain alcohol or petroleum distillates so they will not cause rubber to dry out or harden. P-80® does not contain silicon or other persistent ingredients, so once dry you have a tight fitting part.

Advantages of using P-80® lubricants:

  • Reduce the force required for installation
  • Increase production rates
  • Reduce part breakage and rejects
  • Allow for closer fitting part design
  • Reduce risk of musculoskeletal and slippage related injuries
