Bar’s Products has purchased Hy-Per Lube Corporation. With the acquisition, Bar’s adds the proven Hy-Per Lube brand of high-performance additives to its already impressive family of brands.
Located in Seattle, Bar’s Products says Hy-Per Lube was founded in the early 1950s by Harold Hilton. At the time, Hilton fabricated high-quality valves for a wide range of industries, including paper and pulp, electrical power generation, petrochemical and marine. The enormous amount of heat and friction generated by the worm gears within the valves was causing premature wear and failure, so he developed Hy-Per Lube, a high-film-strength, non-foaming, extreme-pressure oil supplement. From that single product grew an entire toolbox of chemical solutions, including Hy-Per Lube Zinc Replacement Additive, Super Coolant, Max Octane, Quick Heat, Total Fuel System Cleaner, and Diesel Super Coolant.
Hy-Per Lube products complement the extensive Rislone automotive performance chemical catalog and the Bar’s Leaks stop-leak product line. Bar’s Products says Hy-Per Lube is a strategic fit for Bar’s Products because of the brand’s reputation within the automotive industry, particularly among commercial technicians and the trade market. The Hy-Per Lube brand will continue its legacy under the proven management and guidance of Bar’s Products.
