The Sprayon 5S System


Employed by the best industrial facilities worldwide, 5S ensures that there is a place for everything and everything is in its place. At Sprayon®, we’ve integrated 5S into the use of our lubricants & chemicals with the development of the Sprayon 5S System. The Sprayon 5S System connects our Product Labels with point-of-use Visual Management Tools to help any facility implement or sustain 5S methodology in the use of our chemicals and lubricants. Scroll down to learn more about the Sprayon 5S System and why Sprayon has become The 6th S.

The Sprayon® 5S System Product Label approach is based on the simple notion that the most important thing for any Industrial or MRO product label is clearly telling the person who will actually be USING the product what the product is, what it does and where it can & can’t be used. Not only does this improve the efficiency and productivity of the workforce but, perhaps more importantly, it helps reduce the chance that the product will be used in the wrong application. And as we all know, using the wrong product on a piece of equipment may reduce its efficiency and could potentially harm the equipment and/or the user.

The Sprayon 5S System Product Label approach features four (4) simple characteristics:

  1. Color Coded Product Categories
  2. Clear & Consice Product Descriptions
  3. Iconography & Pictographs
  4. Sprayon® Mobile Source



Even with our Sprayon® 5S System Product Label, we felt there was more we could do to help today’s maintenance professional ensure our products were used in the right applications (and reduce the chance that they would be used in the wrong applications). We took the tenets of 5S Visual Management to heart and have developed a set of Point-of-Use Visual Management Tools including Product I.D. Tags and Magnetic Can Holders that are visually connected with our Product Labels to extend the clarity of use to the shop floor. These tools help reinforce the clarity, consistency and standardization that is the heart of any 5S implementation.
