Release agents

The right lubricants for metal-forming

When metal is cast, pressed in dies or punched - having the right release agent is a significant factor for a successful forming process. Our speciality products enable a more profitable operation of your plant due to lower consumption rates, but also because downstream processes are kept simpler.

Which type of product should be used depends largely on the individual forming process: in casting operations the focus is very much on release, hot forging requires additional good lubrication.

Forming processes - Longer production times with less residues

In hot forging or hot pressing operations, what matters most besides dimensional accuracy, are long die and tool life. Furthermore, the formation and build-up of residues in the die should be prevented and the release agents be easy to apply - and easy to remove once the operation is completed.

Our product range for forming processes is comprehensive, from traditional oils and oil-graphite mixtures to innovative coatings and powders for more economical plant operation. We have, for example, developed a powder for cold extrusion which meets even the legal requirements of the food industry.
