New water-based, solvent-free cutout lubricant, Sika-Slick, is designed to reduce cutout force and extend blade life. The manufacturer, Sika Corp., states that it significantly reduces the physical effort needed during the windshield cutout procedure which extends blade life and lessens the likelihood of injury and damage due to slippage of cutout tools. It can be used with all reciprocating cutout tools, and is approved for use with all Sika adhesive systems. Packaged four-to-a-box in 1-quart spray bottles and 1-gallon refill jugs, Sika-Slick does not contaminate the bond area and is best suited for use with reciprocating cutting motions, the manufacturer states.
