Tectyl™ launches future proof range of corrosion protection
After continuous R&D and extensive testing, the new Tectyl™ was launched to improve customer experience. Newly designed spray cans have descriptive product names and icons to make it easier for customers to understand and choose the right product for their needs.
Marine engines are exposed to extreme conditions and so maintaining them with the right lubricant is essential. When the 18.95-metre MV Ellorah was put in to Fraserburgh for service with 34,000 hours on the clock, Bob Sinclair Marine Engineering was impressed by the condition of the engine saying the ship had “the highest number of hours on it that I’ve ever seen, and yet it was the cleanest.”
Unlike other engines which are often black and gungy inside the MV Ellorah had been regularly maintained with Valvoline All Fleet 15W-40 engine oil to keep the engine free from the build-up of oil and keep it running smoothly.
