We want to help you pick the right products to make your summer shut down effective, efficient and inexpensive. Here are our top 6 suggestions for your maintenance and repair needs as well as for day-to-day operations that will help you to continue to run like a well-oiled machine.

3M™ Silicone Lubricant is a silicone-based release agent for industrial lubrication applications.

The silicone polymer is effective between -28°F (-2°C) and 350°F (177°C). The lubricant adheres to parts exceptionally well, reducing reapplication, essentially saving you time. It also comes with a handy snorkel tube for small, hard-to-reach areas.
