Let me re-introduce you to SLIP Plate, a Superior Graphite product. Many farmers already know about SLIP Plate and use the products but over coming months we’re going to introduce you to this company and this product. We’re going to get started now with an interview I just conducted with Barry Lee, Product Manager Coatings & Lubricants, Superior Graphite. He says the company started in 1917 and their strength is graphite, supplying it in various forms to many different industries.
One of those industries is agriculture. It’s here that farmers are familiar with the SLIP Plate product that has been around for about 35 years. Barry shares an interesting anecdote about how they started SLIP Plate for the railroad business. A product they’ve created just for the ag market is Seed SLIK which has been engineered to reduce seed binding and bridging in planter hoppers and lubricate the mechanical parts of the planter without hurting the seeds.
So, Barry says they’ve decided to re-introduce the agricultural market to SLIP Plate. One of the ways they’re doing this is with the launch of the SLIP Plate® Facebook Sweepstakes.
