CRC 5-56 Multi Purpose Lubricant

CRC 5-56 Multi Purpose Lubricant

Multi purpose service spray.
A multi purpose penetrating and lubricating product that breaks through rust and corrosion, displaces water and cleans away scale and dirt.
CRC 5-56 is based on a paraffinic oil and a multiple organic inhibitor system that prevents rust and corrosion by forming a continuous protection barrier against water and oxygen.




  • Penetrates quickly, even into the finest pores and cracks of the surface.
  • Lubricates and restores smooth action.
  • Displaces moisture out of all electrical and ignition systems and makes it possible to start wet engines.
  • Loosens rusted parts and makes them work again.
  • Stops annoying squeaks.
  • Leaves a thin film that protects metals from corrosion induced by humidity and other corrosive atmospheres.
  • Easy repair by eliminating the need for disassembly.
  • Safe for all metals and alloys.
  • Safe on most painted surfaces, coatings, plastics and rubbers (if in doubt, test prior to use).
  • Aerosols are equipped with the 360o (upside-down) spray valve and extension tube for added convenience.
  • Aerosols are pressurised with non-flammable CO2 propellant, giving an active product content of over 97% (i.e.over 30% more than typical hydrocarbon propelled products).
