With guest presenters Richard Crombie & Steve Greathead, RS Clare
We kicked off the new year with guest presenters Richard Crombie and Steve Greathead of RS Clare, the UK’s longest established manufacturer of lubricants for the marine and industrial markets, established in Liverpool in 1748. In addition to a roll call of international clients in the marine sector, the company’s Surface Coatings Division not only makes industrial ant-skid products but – as an interesting aside – the thermoplastic paint from which the nation’s roads are painted with double yellow lines.
Richard and Steve talked environment-friendly, technologically advanced, marine greases and how RS Clare’s innovative Bimagrip product trumps traditional square bar metal anti-skid systems (Bimagrip having most recently been used on ACL’s new G4 vessel Atlantic Sea).
