The state-of-the-art laboratory provides a bright and airy workplace that is ideal for solving tough everyday technical challenges

Metalube's brand new Manchester laboratory is now fully operational having doubled its capacity to 126sqm.

The state-of-the-art space provides a bright and airy workplace that is ideal for solving tough everyday technical challenges. It is purpose built and fitted with specialist furniture and equipment. The facility meets all the requirements for a modern day lubricant developer allowing the company to produce first class products that repeatedly outstrip its competitors.

Along with the new laboratory Metalube has also invested over £100,000 in new state of the art equipment to further enhance development capability. This new equipment includes a Seta 4-ball tester, Mettler differential scanning calorimeter and Liebisch Kesternich cabinet and covers the key functional properties of friction and wear, thermal stability and corrosion protection.

Technical Director Chris Nettleshipe says: "As award winning innovators we needed to update our laboratory facilities accordingly. We have in recent years increased our number of chemist by 25% and new lab provides them with a fabulous contemporary 21st century environment to work from."
