One Lubricant, Countless Applications

Not only is it one of the most effective industrial lubricants and water displacers on the market, this chemical-cabinet-champion serves countless purposes in maintenance, repair, and general applications. It’s truly the Swiss army knife of lubricants!

LPS 1 applications include:

  • Lubrication: LPS 1 can be used to provide lubrication to moving parts, such as hinges, locks, gears, and sliding mechanisms. It helps reduce friction and wear on these components.
  • Penetrant: It can penetrate and loosen rust, corrosion, and seized parts. When sprayed onto rusted or stuck bolts, nuts, or fittings, it helps to ease disassembly.
  • Water Displacement: LPS 1 is an effective water displacer and moisture inhibitor. It can be used to protect metal surfaces from moisture, preventing rust and corrosion. This is particularly useful in marine and outdoor applications.
  • Contact Cleaner: It can be used as a contact cleaner to remove dirt, grime, and contaminants from electrical components, connectors, and switches without causing damage while cleaning.
  • Protective Coating: LPS 1 leaves behind a thin, non-greasy protective film on metal surfaces, helping to prevent further corrosion and providing protection for up to thirty days. 
  • Rust Inhibitor: It’s highly effective when used to protect tools and equipment from rust and corrosion during storage or transit, inhibiting rust for up to thirty days.
  • Thread Lubricant: When used on threads, it can ease the tightening of nuts and bolts and prevent galling and seizing.
  • Lock Lubricant: It is commonly used to lubricate locks and padlocks, preventing them from sticking or freezing in cold weather.
  • General Maintenance: LPS 1 is handy for general maintenance tasks in industries like automotive, aerospace, marine, and manufacturing, where it can be applied to various equipment and machinery.
  • Corrosion Prevention for Firearms: LPS 1 can be used to remove carbon soils from firearms. It also displaces any moisture and leaves a nice greaseless lubricant behind to keep delicate mechanisms moving easily.


Where can I use LPS 1?

Aside from its industrial roots, LPS 1 can be used in just about any industry needing lubrication, water displacement, and rust prevention.

  • Agriculture and Farming: LPS 1 can be used to lubricate and protect various equipment used in agriculture, including tractors, machinery, and irrigation systems.
  • Aviation and Aerospace: It is used in the aviation industry for various purposes, such as protecting aircraft components, lubricating control systems, and preventing corrosion on aircraft surfaces.
  • Wind farms: LPS 1 can be used to lubricate moving parts and protect equipment components from environmental stressors like rain and humidity.
  • Construction: Need to leave metal tools or equipment out on the jobsite for extended periods of time? Protect them with a thin coating LPS 1.
