4/6/2005 Dublin, Ohio (USA) - Extending the life of wire rope can provide positive bottom-line results. A new brochure that features results from using NEVAMELT(TM) wire rope conditioner is now available from Drew Marine, a business group of Ashland Specialty Chemical, a division of Ashland Inc. (NYSE:ASH). The four-page brochure highlights Ashland's ability to provide a complete solution for the care and maintenance of wire ropes. NEVAMELT wire rope conditioner, when used with the Kirkpatrick Wire Rope Lubrication System, decreases safety concerns raised from hand application of grease and extends the life of wire rope, providing a tangible return on investment.

The Kirkpatrick Wire Rope Lubrication System eliminates the issue of spent solvents and greasy rag waste resulting from the manual care of ships' wire ropes.
