Chemico - a famous brand name for over 100 years

From one of our loyal customers

"In the late 1960’s I reground the valves of my Morris 8 engine using Chemico Grinding Paste. This year I decided to overhaul the same engine (yes I still have the car) and dug out my old tin of Chemico only to find that it was nearly empty! I purchased a new tin and the jobs finished. I thought you might like to see the 50 year old tin next to your current tin (on top of my « reground » engine)."

Bren Gun Carrier

" I've been in the motor trade as a professional mechanic since the mid 1980s I've built dozens of engines over the years, but the one area that stays consistent is using Chemico Grinding Paste. No other alternative even comes close in my opinion. I'm currently building what I believe will be my masterpiece! A 1943 Canadian built Ford Flathead V8. It's from a Canadian Universal 'Bren Gun' Carrier Mk.1 As with any engine restoration/repair, whether it's vintage or modern, attention to detail is critical if you want the desired outcome. Long may you continue to produce your legendary product."

Happy customer with Chemico Grinding Paste

From yet another one of our loyal customers

"I am writing to you to tell you about a tin of your valve grinding paste that I bought in 1971 to do a job on my father's 1954 Morris Minor. Having completed the work I kept the barely used tin in my garage and subsequently did various other cars and motor bikes with it until 2007 when I lent it to a friend and forgot all about it.
Then last week I needed to do some work on another motorbike so bought a new tin. Of course 2 days later my friend mentioned he still had the original tin and returned it the next day. When I opened it it was as good as new and I finished the job perfectly, despite the tin being 45 years old! I find this remarkable---a real tribute to your manufacturing process!"

From one of our loyal customers

"I do use both Chemico Jointing Cement and Valve Grinding Paste (fine/coarse) as a mechanic and found that Chemico products are fantastic. I have nothing but praise for these products."
