Assembly lubricants for Marine industry - Shipbuilding & Water Transport

The boat, marine engine and accessory industry relies heavily on natural and synthetic rubber for various purposes including engines, propeller hubs, pumps, hoses, seals, O-rings and grommets. Due to the slip resistant nature of rubber, it is relatively difficult to install, remove or manipulate. P-80® Lubricants provide a safe and easy way to improve assembly operations of rubber and soft plastic parts.

P-80 assists in the assembly and/or repair of:

  • Hoses
  • Bearings
  • Boots
  • Bumpers
  • Bushings
  • Grips
  • Grommets
  • Insulators
  • Mounts
  • O-rings
  • Plugs
  • Rubber Moldings
  • Seals

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:

The charts below are designed to assist in determining the best P-80® formula for different applications. Each P-80® formula has unique properties designed to meet the needs of specific types of rubber and soft plastic assembly applications. For many assemblies, only one P-80® formula may resolve the assembly challenge. In other instances, more than one P-80® formula might work well. Some facilities may approve and use more than one formula depending on the application.
