Metalube Rope-Tek achieves VGP compliance

Metalube is delighted to announce that Rope-Tek™ WRD40 now complies with VGP (Vessel General Permit) standards demanded by the US Government for all commercial shipping above 79ft entering US coastal waters. To comply with VGP standards Metalube has been issued with an EU EcoLabel. The company's license number is UK/027/015.

Rope-Tek™ WRD40 is a new high-performance, biodegradable lubricant specifically designed from renewable raw material sources. Rope-Tek™ WRD40 is designed to protect steel wire ropes that come into direct contact with seawater in the shipping, oil & gas and fishing industries.

Commenting on the EcoLabel, Commercial Director, Douglas Hunt says: "Having a wire rope lubricant with VGP compliance will enable Metalube to enter a whole new market place. We are extremely excited about this opportunity since the market is becoming more concerned about using environmentally acceptable lubricants in marine environments."

Metalube manufactures a range of industrial wire rope lubricants and many other high performance industrial lubricants. This experienced exporter employs 34 people and has offices in China, India and Brazil.
