SLIP Plate® History
Asbury Carbons dry film technology was first created in 1975 when
railroad maintenance engineers searched for a remedy to the problem of lubricating switch
plates for railroad tracks. SLIP Plate® was created as
an original solution – a dry film lubricant that was Slippery When Dry®.
Asbury Carbons makes many products using this technology to help
perform some amazing tasks. For agricultural and industrial applications we created SLIP
Plate® No. 1 (Heavy Duty), No. 3 (Quick Dry), and No. 4 (Eco-Friendly) – lubricants which reduce sliding friction
when applied on hay elevators, gravity wagons, rollers and other equipment. Seed SLIK™
Graphite, Talc and Blend (of graphite and
talc) were formulated to ease seed flow during planting while SLIP Plate® Cold Oven Chain and Hot Oven Chain Lubricants – to prolong the life of conveyor chains
and reduce noise.
MowerGUARD™ Graphite aids in preventing wet grass clippings
from accumulation under lawn mowers. Black Ice™ Graphite is
used in gun and fire-fighting equipment maintenance. A high-quality graphite powder Tube-O-Lube®, SLIP Plate®
Aerosol, Chain & Cable, and Penetrant Plus aerosols were created for house and other
SLIP Plate® products use high quality graphite powders
from certified and qualified sources to produce the highest level of coating protection.
Competitive products may make claims that they are equal in performance, but experience in
the field and in the lab show that they are not the same and may even scratch and increase
damage of your equipment due to lower quality of graphite.
SLIP Plate® brand on the can insures you are getting a
product backed by a company with over 90 years of manufacturing excellence and production
know-how. SLIP Plate® is the original graphite dry-film coating, and was the first to
help save farmers money replacing equipment that prematurely failed.
Asbury Carbons is at the forefront of graphite and carbon-based
solutions to sliding friction issues. Competitors like to copy the popular products, but
only Asbury Carbons offers a full line of coatings and lubricants
for agriculture today.

We create value for our customers by providing superior solutions – utilizing our unique
technologies, processes and talents – while contributing to the company’s long-term
Throughout its long history, SLIP Plate® has been
committed to three core principals: ingenuity, versatility, and integrity. This has enabled
us to adapt to ever-changing business and economic conditions, and led to a process of
continuous growth and evolution with our customers.
Since its foundation in 1917, our company has explored the physical and geographical
frontiers of its markets. In the late 1970s, this pioneering approach led to the invention
of a new, patented furnace technology that revolutionized our product range and transformed
the company (Until then, graphite was mainly processed from natural mineral resources or the
re-crushing of spent electrodes). We were the first to manufacture graphite on a continuous
basis using proprietary technology. We subsequently expanded the boundaries of natural and
synthetic graphite purification as well as the process of synthesizing graphite or other
carbon-based materials. We have also explored new avenues in continuous graphitization and
developed a number of innovative processes.
We are committed to continuously collaborate with our business partners, harnessing the
challenges of today, and turning them into the opportunities of tomorrow. Solutions from
Superior Graphite are tools that will positively impact your success.
