ProLube™ Concentrate

Instrument Lubricant Concentrate

Water soluble instrument lubricant designed for use in the lubrication cycle of automated washer systems.

  • Unlike competitors, ProLube Concentrate is a true solution that never separates.
  • Unique mineral oil and silicone-free, water soluble, non-toxic food grade lubricant.
  • Permeable to steam and ETO sterilants.
  • No rinsing necessary after application.
  • Penetrating agents increase lubricant action in hinges and box locks.
  • Anti-corrosives, rust inhibitors and surface conditioning agents improve instrument function and surface integrity.
  • ProLube will never produce a sticky yellow film inside box locks after hot sterilization cycles, unlike traditional mineral oil based “instrument milk”.

According to ANSI/AAMI ST79 “…Water-soluble instrument lubricants, specifically designed for compatibility with sterilization, may be used… Instrument lubricants containing mineral oil or other oil bases should not be used, except to lubricate the internal mechanism of powered instruments…”
