NEW WD-40® SPECIALIST® SPRAY & STAY GEL LUBRICANT MAKES VERTICAL SURFACES AND MOVING PARTS EASY TO MAINTAIN

March 30, 2016

Non-Drip, Gel-like Formula Stays Where You Spray It

SAN DIEGO - March 30, 2016 -To meet the needs of trade professionals with jobs requiring longer-lasting lubrication and corrosion protection that won’t run, drip or make a mess, WD-40 Company is launching the Spray & Stay Gel Lubricant to its WD-40® Specialist® line of products.

WD-40 Specialist Spray & Stay Gel Lubricant is a no-drip, no-mess lubricant, making it the ultimate solution for vertical surfaces and moving parts like chains and cables where lubrication needs to stay put.

The gel-like formula is engineered with self-healing technology that softens to lubricate when there’s friction; and when the friction stops, it solidifies again to protect against rust and corrosion. WD-40 Specialist Spray & Stay Gel prevents rust for up to one year*.

“Just like the product name implies, WD-40 Specialist Spray & Stay Gel Lubricant is the superior lubrication and protection solution for specialized jobs requiring the formula to stay where it’s sprayed,” said Dr. Ernest Bernarducci, vice president of research and development at WD-40 Company. “While WD-40 Multi-Use Product – the familiar blue and yellow can – serves as the go-to product for a variety of everyday needs, the Spray & Stay Gel Lubricant provides 12 times longer lasting lubrication for tougher challenges.”

“We’re so confident in the engineering and performance of this new innovation that we are offering a 100 percent money back guarantee,” said Tim Lesmeister, vice president of marketing at WD-40 Company.

WD-40 Specialist Spray & Stay Gel Lubricant is available now at major retailers. To learn more about WD-40 Specialist Spray & Stay Gel Lubricant visit WD40specialist.com/products/spray-gel/ , or see it in action on the WD-40 Company YouTube channel . Product images can be downloaded at here .
