LUBE-A-BOOM® Insulator Answers Utility Market’s Need
for a Safe, Non-Conductive Equipment Lubricant

Safety is the primary concern for users of all lifting and access equipment. This is especially so when they are working in the vicinity of electrical utilities and other charged properties. It is a message LUBE-A-BOOM® heard loud and clear at last October’s International Construction & Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE).

“So many private contractors and public agencies in the utility sector sought us out at the Louisville show,” says Jo Roberts, Product Development Lead with LUBE-A-BOOM®, of Indianapolis, Indiana. “They already knew LUBE-A-BOOM®, and liked and appreciated our lubricant product line. But they wanted to know if we could provide them with a specific non-conductive lubricant for safe use where and when there is electrical and power exposure.”

Ms. Roberts and her product development and research team immediately went to work. They spent a good part of the next year sourcing, testing, tweaking and, upon extensive field testing, now releasing the newest member of the LUBE-A-BOOM® product family.

LUBE-A-BOOM® INSULATOR is available immediately in 425 g spray cans from authorized LUBE-A-BOOM® dealers located throughout the U.S., Canada and markets around the world. A low VOC version, mandatory in some jurisdictions, is also available.

Safe for Workers and Machines
The request for and market demand of the newest LUBE-A-BOOM® product is all about worker safety in potentially dangerous situations.

“For any aerial lift, cherry picker or other equipment that moves, slides or lifts and has to be around power – or has anything to do with electrical applications – this is going to insulate the properties that are lubed,” explains Jo Roberts. “INSULATOR will prevent these particular workers from being shocked when applying lubricant to the machines, as they and all equipment users must do.”

As a highly dielectric product, LUBE-A-BOOM® INSULATOR is an ideal friction reducing lubricant for use around power exposure. It not only insulates and lubricates equipment, but like other members of the LUBE-A-BOOM® product family, it also protects surfaces against moisture and corrosion.
