CRC Penetr8 is an industrial strength, low viscosity lubricant and penetrant designed to quickly loosen and free seized, bound or frozen fasteners. CRC Penetr8 quickly permeates rust, scale, gum, grease and corrosion with a low surface tension liquid penetrant formula. It creeps into cracks, seams, threads and joints with great efficiency and leaves a thin non-drying colourless film with outstanding lubrication and corrosion inhibiting properties.

CRC Penetr8 eases the disassembly of plant machinery, tools and equipment for routine maintenance and emergency repairs. Its super penetrating formula outperforms the competition in penetration, speed and corrosion resistance as verified by independent tests.
