GREEN VELVET UPDATES

Summer 2013 is now over and many new things have been happening at the Green Velvet oil dock!

Many customers have been experiencing frustrating error messages when trying to order oil via PayPal. We have worked with PayPal support to identify the source of error messages and are now making the script changes needed to comply with the PayPal servers. The PayPal shopping cart buttons should work seamlessly now.

We have completely built a whole new website from scratch. It will be more pleasant and easier to work with – old trusted customers will be able to order faster with less navigation around the site. New customers will be able to easily find the proper oil and will be directed to email Bill Petitjean with their application questions. Watch for the new website over the next several weeks.

We have just introduced a new #2 soda grease for open bearings that use grease instead of oil. Soda greases have been obsolete for many years. They were replaced by lithium greases to reduce water solubility. As most old engine operators know, the lithium greases sling badly from open bearings – they are designed for sealed, anti-friction bearings. Soda greases are water soluble, but they are also fibrous and tacky. They don’t sling very much from open bearings, last longer and provide a rust protection benefit in open bearings that are lubricated with grease fittings or old fashion grease cups. They are easy to clean off machinery parts with soap and water or steam cleaning. Our #2 soda grease is the best open bearing lubricant because it is a 100 year old recipe whose time has come again. Look for it in the new website.

The Green Velvet line of oils is now up to about 20 different products. We sell these lubricants into a large diversity of markets for heritage machinery, agricultural machinery and industrial machinery. We are now taking steps to introduce the Green Velvet line to distribution/retail partners so our products will be available on retail shelves near our customer families across the country. Our goal is to make Green Velvet oils conveniently available off the shelf everywhere so you can buy your cylinder oil when you are making a trip to the store to buy shoe laces, etc. We will be working with our retail partners throughout the winter to make Green Velvet products much more widely available by next summer. Watch the new websites for new retail partners who are stocking resellers of Green Velvet products.

We are entering our 14th year and are proud of our Green Velvet products. We value the great customers in our Green Velvet family and strive to provide outstanding products at a reasonable price.
