Description
Arthur H. Thomas, a major scientific supply firm in Philadelphia, introduced Lubriseal in 1919, describing it as “a rust-proof lubricant, nearly acid and alkali-proof, for use with either metal or glass stopcocks.” The inscriptions on this example read in part: “Thomas LUBRISEAL / Improved Formula” and “One Tube No. 8690-B10 T.L.” and “ARTHUR H. THOMAS CO.”
