P-80 THIX Temporary Assembly Lubricant gel is a biodegradable assembly aid that eases installation of tight-fitting rubber and plastic parts by reducing the force needed for insertion. Once assembly is complete, the lubricant dries and the part returns to its original condition. P-80® THIX is especially useful in overhead and vertical assembly operations because it remains where it is applied without dripping. P-80® THIX thins out under pressure so it can be used in automated systems or applied manually by dip, brush, or spray techniques.
P-80® THIX Temporary Assembly Lubricant is used to install hoses, o-rings, seals, bushings, gaskets, grommets, grips, and many other rubber and plastic parts. Use P-80® THIX when a thick coating of lubricant is needed, when it is important that the lubricant stay where it is applied, and/or when a prolonged drying time is desired.
