Container Lashings

The Application:

The majority of greases manufactured – even the majority supplied to the marine environment – are designed to lubricate machinery; they are not designed to withstand exposure on the open decks.  When it comes to container lashings, what requires greasing is primarily the threaded parts. Here, any thicker layer of grease is forced off by the turning of the thread. What little grease is left to protect the lashings is easily washed off in bad weather, dries out or drips off in hot temperatures. Grease that is washed off ends up either polluting the sea or causing greasy, hazardous and messy crossbays. Meanwhile equipment is left exposed, leading to rusty container lashings that are unreliable and cause delays during assembly.

The Product:

Ferryl 202 Aluminium Anticorrosive Grease

Ferryl 202 Aluminium Anticorrosive Grease is known as a "Grease Paint" because of the paint-like coverage of this grease. This means that a very thin layer of Ferryl 202 Aluminium, with built-in chemical rust inhibitors, will protect and lubricate the threads of container lashings. Because Ferryl 202 Aluminium does not dry hard, it provides the necessary lubrication to easily open and close lashings.

Specifically designed for deck applications, it withstands varying temperatures (-30°C to + 70°C) and exposure to saltwater and sunlight. The adhesion of the product is excellent and it is not easily washed off by bad weather. Ferryl 202 Aluminium will not drip in hot, tropical climates and will not become brittle and crack at temperatures below freezing.

Ferryl 202 Aluminium gets its name from the aluminium within the product, which gives it excellent anti-seize properties as well as its aluminium-grey colour, which blends in well on container lashings.
