James City County is pleased to announce that Eelsnot has expanded its product line to include a new tactical lubricant. The new Eelsnot tactical lubricant is nontoxic and does not smoke or congeal from high heat created by firearms. The product can also be used on the exterior metal parts of firearms to protect from surface rust. The tactical lubricant has a cone tip for application. Eelsnot has also changed its name to Eelsnot Protective Coatings to encompass its new product line. The company was formerly Eelsnot Marine Coatings.
“I am pleased to offer this tactical lubricant and am glad to be able to provide another market for Eelsnot,” said Toby West, CEO of Eelsnot.
Eelsnot began as a home-based business in 2006 and at the time offered skim board and surfboard therapy made from an eco-friendly compound that becomes a thin, very slippery layer on the surface of the board. Eelsnot Board Therapy fills scratches, nicks, and dings shielding water from a board’s core, which reduces drag, ensuring greater speed.
In 2015, Eelsnot expanded into marine coatings and opened its location at 7521 Richmond Road, Suite #F-C.
Eelsnot’s marine coatings aim to help watermen cut down on time spent cleaning, scraping and fixing boats. The compound material protects surfaces on boats including wood, copper, aluminum, fiberglass, epoxy, gel coat, rubber and polypropylene. The compound is also designed to be friendly to the environment. It forms a barrier at the molecular level to protect boats.
Eelsnot will host a spring kick-off and open house event on Saturday, March 18 from 5-11 p.m. at their facility.
