UK Launch of Chlorine Free Cold Heading Lubricants
The range of LUBRA products for cold forming of metals, includes a series of fluids specifically formulated with advanced technologies sensitive to the environmental needs and waste regulations. Almost all products are therefore “Chlorine-free” and “Eco-compatible.”
The EXTRAFORM Series include chlorine and sulphur free products, which can be used as both forming fluid and as a slideway/guide lubricant. EXTRAFORM is produced from specialised raw materials and is ideal for the difficult processes of stamping and direct or inverse cold extrusion such as the production of gudgeon-pins, spark plug shells, ball pins, tube fittings, valve guides, hydraulic connections, “Anuba” hinges, tubular and semi-tubular rivets, of high carbon steel and stainless steel. It uses a specialised compound to convert and deposit a solid thin strong film on the surface of metals benefiting tool life, die life, elimination of seizing, less down time and easy cleaning. The DEFORMING SK series are universal compounds suitable for cold stamping, heading and extruding of mild steel, medium and high carbon steels, for the production of special fasteners for the automotive industry, flange bolts, wood screws, socket screws. It allows high performances on hexagonal allenhead bolts/screws production by horizontal presses as NATIONAL, SCHULER, WATERBURY FARREL, SACMA, SALVI, SAKAMURA, ASAHI SUNAC, JERN YAO and JPB etc.
The EXTRAFORM P series product range is suitable for the difficult heading and stamping processes of screws, bolts and tubular / semi-tubular rivets made from aluminium, low and medium carbon content steel, and alloyed steel.
EXTRAFORM P8 is recommended for the production of tubular and semi-tubular rivets in aluminium and its alloys. It is mainly applied on machines with two stations for example on Salvi, Hilgeland, Sacma and National machines with extruding punches.
EXTRAFORM P9 is recommended for those machines, where the application of a more viscous lubricant is necessary to limit excessive leaks.
EXTRAFORM P10 is a compound suitable for stamping small metal parts on horizontal presses with 4 or more stations.
EXTRAFORM P11, the most viscous product of EXTRAFORM P series, is suitable for old presses which have excessive leaks of slide / guide oil.
EXTRAFORM P series is a range of chlorine free lubricants for the cold extrusion, heading and forming of metals. It is one of the most efficient on the market today. It is produced by a process which catalyses the functional molecular groups present in the specially selected lubricant carriers.
EXTRAFORM P series functions by using a particular compound to convert and to deposits a solid thin strong film on the surface of the metal.
EXTRAFORM provides the following benefits:-
- Increased tool and die life
- Eliminate seizing
- Less down time
- Easy cleaning
- Does not cause the corrosion typical of stamping oils.
As a multipurpose product EXTRAFORM eliminates the problem of performance drop-off caused by the mixing of lubrication oils with the cooling oil, which often occurs on horizontal presses.
MAXIDEF series for drawing of Rod, bar and wire includes chlorine free products suitable for skin passing wire drawing of high carbon steel, bearing steel (100Cr6), high alloyed steel, stainless steel. The preparation of wire or rod can be by chemical or mechanical pickling, with or without phosphate coating. Formulated to be used in wire drawing machine tanks or in the proper die stock boxes in-line with horizontal cold stamping presses to produce bolts, screws, nuts, automotive parts. The use of MAXIDEF allows reduction of wire from 15% up to 25% without compromising the phosphate coating.
Products are suitable for round section bars, square section bars, flat section bars and special steel profiles without the need for solid surface coating lubricants such as bonder etc - generally used on the Shumag draw benches. MAXIDEF HD is a highly advanced product, in line with the new european directive of June 2009, due to its low environmental impact and its low waste disposal cost as non hazardous waste.
Range also includes compounds for high carbon and stainless steel wire drawing. Suitable for multi hole drawing of intermediate diameter wires at high drawing speed. Reductions of 20-25% for draft, 19-35% for draft.
