The graphite-free lubricant our customer was using was leaving residues on the coldest parts of the die. The company was producing approximately 2000 parts per die and was requiring constant replacements, which was causing higher maintenance costs and an increase in downtime.
After performing an adhesion test between the competitor’s product and our lubricants. Metalflow’s R&D department proposed FORFLOW 2401 release agent. A graphite-free, water-based lubricant formulated with organometallic salts, that avoids the presence of residues on the die.
