Assembly Lubricants

Home » Products » Assembly Lubricants

McLube’s consummate line of assembly and insertion aids includes water and solvent-based options for rubber, plastic, composite, and metallic parts. McLube offers temporary assembly lubricants that absorb harmlessly into the part post-insertion as well as enhanced slip lubricants for long-lasting lubricity. We also offer specialty greases and powdered lubricants. We are committed to customer and end-user satisfaction and our Technical Representatives will work with you to select the appropriate process aid for your assembly operation. Poor or inappropriate process aids can lead to unsafe working conditions, injuries related to cumulative trauma, slower production, and damage to parts. McLube endeavors to supply tailor-made assembly lubricants that reduce or eliminate these risks in a timely, cost-effective manner.

Benefits of McLube Assembly

and Insertion Aids

Enhanced Slip

McLube Assembly Lubricants furnish a low coefficient of friction on rubber and plastic parts without causing swell for easy assembly/ insertion.

Product Improvement

Easy assembly/insertion will reduce rejection rates, damage to parts, improper alignment, and poor functionality.

Chemically Inert

McLube Lubricants will not corrode or breakdown rubbers and plastics over time and generally have a low order of toxicity.

Injury Prevention

Trauma due to repetitive, forceful actions is believed to cause stress injuries like carpel tunnel (CTS). McLube Lubricants will significantly reduce the force required to insert or remove parts and contribute to a reduction in work-place related injuries associated with repetitive trauma and assembly mishaps.

McLube Protection

McLube Lubricants are exceptionally durable and will help to protect rubber, plastic, and metallic parts from physical abrasion, environmental degradation, and harmful compounds. We also offer products with proprietary rust-inhibiting additives for enhanced protection of metallic tools and parts.

Environmentally Conscious & Operator Friendly

Our water-based lubricants do not contain VOCs or substances at their given concentration that cause harm when used properly. Our water-based lubricants will not give off a foul odor or migrate to cause factory complications.

Temporary Lubricants vs. Enhanced Slip Assembly Aids

McLube’s consummate line of insertion aids and assembly lubricants includes temporary lubricants as well as long-lasting enhanced slip assembly aids. While lubricants aid insertion and removal of parts, lubricity post-production can cause rolling, disconnects, part deformation, rejection, and serious injury. McLube temporary lubricants provide a low coefficient of friction for easy insertion/assembly and then harmlessly absorb into the part to avoid unwanted slip post-production. These specialty lubricants will not cause gaskets, O-rings or other parts to bloom/swell after absorption and will not degrade rubber, plastic, or metal over time. McLube enhanced slip assembly aids offer increased slip characteristics for particularly difficult insertion or extraction operations and are also more durable for long-lasting lubricity. These lubricants are ideal for parts that will be stored for a long period of time before assembly.  Contact McLube for specific product information and assistance with selecting the appropriate assembly lubricant for your line.
