Andrew Grogono

Andrew Grogono, a Chartered Engineer and life-long sailor, used his engineering experience to design this simple solution to eliminate damage to gelcoat and varnished surfaces caused by chafe from lines and ropes. Called ‘WearAndTearPads’, they are comprised of ultra-thin marine-grade stainless steel sheets with a high spec self-adhesive backing. They have been in use on Andrew’s own Beneteau for several years and have been well reviewed in yachting magazines worldwide.

Unlike other anti-chafe products made of carbon fibre, Kevlar, PTFE,Pur Clear etc. our stainless steel pads are guaranteed to never wear through.

New in 2019: A new, higher spec, adhesive developed with “3M” tested during 2018 season.

News for 2020: Two for one offer is back again! To order, click on “WearAndTearPads” above

We are the leading company in the manufacture and distribution of anti chafe pads for yachts – with over 11,000 having been sold so far – the original and the best. Accept no imitations!
