MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the automotive assembly lubricants market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes International Products Corporation (IPC) with the 2012 North American Frost & Sullivan Product Leadership Award for its P-80® temporary assembly lubricants. The automotive industry relies heavily on natural and synthetic rubber for various purposes within chassis, engine and suspension components. Applications include component mounts, various seals, protective surfaces, belts, bushings, o-rings, hoses and other powertrain components and subsystems.
Due to the slip resistant nature of rubber, it is relatively difficult to install, remove or manipulate rubber components. The use of P-80 lubricants improves rubber assemblies, speeds up productivity, reduces waste, and helps to ensure a high-quality end product.
"IPC has worked over the past decade to widen the potential for P-80 lubricants, from automotive and mechanical assemblies to other industries such as food and healthcare," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Priyank Aggarwal.
Unlike its competitors, IPC's P-80 products are water-based, non-toxic, non-flammable, easy to dispose, and ready to use. P-80 is available in a range of formulas. Customers can select different viscosities, lubricant bases, drying properties, as well as NSF registered formulas for incidental food contact.
IPC remains committed to manufacturing products that are water-based and designed to replace petroleum based lubricants. Their onsite laboratory performs quality and analytical work, research on new and improved products, and assistance to customers with technical testing. "In case a customer has a new requirement, IPC is equipped to handle the sample fittings in-house and recommend an appropriate solution from its product line," notes Aggarwal. "This ensures long-term partnerships for IPC and low production costs for customers."
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed an innovative feature or functionality to its product. The award recognizes the quality of the product, the added value it offers customers and its acceptance in the marketplace.
