SLIP Plate® Connects with Farmers
Chicago, IL — SLIP Plate®, a product line of graphite lubricants, is connecting with the agricultural market via ZimmComm. Chuck Zimmerman, ZimmComm founder and radio personality, has interviewed SLIP Plate® Product Manager, Barry Lee, to discover the endless agricultural applications of SLIP Plate®.
“One product specifically created for the agriculture 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.” Barry Lee says, “we are working to re-introduce the agricultural market to SLIP Plate® and one of the ways we are doing this is with the launch of the SLIP Plate® Facebook Sweepstakes.”
With the ever-growing agricultural industry, it is important for farmers to keep up with the competitive, fast-paced environment and produce crops at maximum potential. Providing a slick surface anywhere friction is present, SLIP Plate® products are the best lubricants on the market for all types of farming equipment. ZimmComm and social media are two important mediums to get this message out to the agricultural community.
