The Doctor's Products Doctor Slick Cork TreatmentMore InfoAbout CorkCork is a wood product and as such needs special treatment. Your cork will last longer, remain supple and will not peel, chip or disintegrate if treated properly. Traditional "cork grease" is a petroleum based product that clogs the pores, fine structure and over time reduces the corks ability to absorb moisture, compress and rebound, ultimately leads to disintegration of the cork itself and leads to loosening the glue holding the cork on the tenon. The Idea behind the productThe idea for the product came during a visit to Italy and Emperor Hadrian's Villa outside Rome. Clay jars containing olive oil were found in perfect condition - including their contents - after 1500 years. The jars were sealed with native corks which appeared to be in wonderful condition, covered with bees wax and pine resin. How does it work?We all know that cork needs to maintain a certain moisture content to remain soft and supple from the wine industry where bottles are stored upright and the cork becomes brittle and cracks when you insert a corkscrew. In order to make the product fulfill it's job of smoothly lubricating the cork we were fortunate to get some great advice from an old Asian herbalist that suggested we use a special extract of the Slippery Elm Tree Bark. It worked so well that we call this additional ingredient - Nature's Teflon(TM). With Nature's Teflon(TM) the product is an ideal cork treatment which is slippery but not greasy, sticky, or smelly and is kind to cork.

This cork grase is the best. It is not sticky or gummy, the best thing about it is that you don't need a lot of it so the tube lasts longer that the traditional. It keeps my corks nice and smooth and I don't even have to use it every day like the other kind. It doest clump up in the tenons when I push the joints together. It is great stuff. It is all I use now.
Dr Omar Henderson's background (in both music and chemistry) is well known to many who frequent the clarinet bulletin boards. He takes pride in both the quality and the proven research that each of his products has gone through. If you cherish your instrument and want the absolute very best for it, look no further. Where other cork applications will eventually fail (and often loosen the glue that holds the cork to the instrument)this cork grease is formulated to be both "cork friendly" and made of natural ingredients.
Dr Henderson's lubricants are used world wide by musicians because they are the very best.
This cork grease is the best thing on the market for corks. Typically cork grease will break down the glue under the cork thus making the cork strip - not this stuff. The Doctor designed it to not break down the glue and that makes a ton of difference to how long your cork will last. Good stuff!!
This grease is simply the best on the market. It will keep your tennons assembling smoothly for a long time. One thing nobody else seems to have mentioned is that the tube is transparent and you can tell when you are about to run out. Every instrument I've fixed/cleaned for my school has received this grease (I've even smoothened up the low Eb key on a bass clarinet by greasing the cork on the key). I've used this for over a year now and I still have most of the same corks in the same condition as last year (over 30 cork joints). If you're really serious about preserving your instrument than this is a best buy.
I am a woodwind technician and have used Dr's products for several years. I think it is the best on the market.
