Prolan Label Changes

We are in the midst of upgarding our product labels. Basically the label will have a similar layout with the orange logo however the background colours will identify the differing grades of Prolan. This should make it easier to identify the  grade you are after. The colours will be as follows:

Blue: Enduro Medium Grade

Green: Enduro Heavy Grade

Yellow: Light Grade


Orange: Anti-seize grease.

Success in the UK

Prolan's new UK distributor the 'Forge Group' whose key men are 'Matt Forbes' and 'James George'  have now placed their 2nd stock order and some exciting opportunities are being presented to them.

The 'Banagher Group' who specialise in precast concrete components are impressed with the results when using the 'Prolan Enduro Medium Grade' on their steel moulds to stop corrosion while the moulds are not being used.

'JCB' are the largest supplier in the UK of mobile equipment used in the agricultural and construction sectors. They too have been impressed with the results from using 'Prolan' for corrosion prevention when used as a coating on equipment used in the fertiliser industry. 

Port success in Scandinavia

Customer:-'Esbjerg Harbour Port' is one of the largest in Denmark handling 2/3rds of the countries truck transport cargo.  This port has 40yrs of experience in the oil and offshore oil industries. 'Esbjerg Port' was first introduced to 'Prolan' by a forklift supplier in Denmark who had corrosive issues on forklifts exposed to the harsh North Sea weather conditions. 

Solution:-The forklifts were sprayed with 'Prolan Heavy Grade' and the corrosion stopped. The service technician had seen results from tests on the forklifts and could see the advantage of using'Prolan' product on the wire ropes of their 'Leibher' cranes. 'Prolan' not only stopped the corrosion problems on the crane wires but it also lubricated as well. 

Result:-'Prolan' is now used on the wire ropes of the cranes for protection and lubrication.'Prolan' is also sprayed onto any exposed metal surfaces around the port that are prone to rust and corrosion.They have also discovered that 'Prolan' does not need to be applied as often as the previous lubricant. The previous product had to be reapplied to the wire ropes every 2-3 weeks. They have found the 'Prolan' lasts 12 months reducing downtime and maintenance on the crane considerably. The rope on inspection after 12 months looked as good as when first installed.

Testimonial:-“I can give 'PROLAN' our best recommendations and we are sure that many harbours could benefit from using ‘Prolan’ to solve problems and to reduce the numbers of products/chemicals used,” says Mr. Hans Christian Lindholm.

 Finally some Humour for you All


*Two Woodpeckers* 

This Mexican woodpecker and a Canadian woodpecker were in Mexico arguing about which country had the toughest trees. 
The Mexican woodpecker claimed Mexico had a tree that no woodpecker could peck.

The Canadian woodpecker accepted his challenge and promptly pecked a hole in the tree with no problem.


The Mexican woodpecker was amazed.


The Canadian woodpecker then challenged the Mexican woodpecker to peck a tree in Canada that was absolutely 'impeccable' (a term frequently used by woodpeckers).

The Mexican woodpecker expressed confidence that he could do it and accepted the challenge.

The two of them flew to Canada where the Mexican woodpecker successfully pecked 
the so-called 'impeccable' tree almost without breaking a sweat...


Both woodpeckers were now terribly confused.

How is it that the Canadian woodpecker was able to peck the Mexican tree, and the Mexican woodpecker was able to peck the Canadian tree, yet neither was able to peck the tree in their own country?

After much woodpecker pondering, they both came to the same conclusion: 
Apparently, Aaron Smith, Tiger Woods and Shane Warne were right, when they said, 

“your pecker gets harder when you're away from home”..
