New technology synthetic deep drawing lubricant products with out-standing (miraculous according to one customer) performance have recently been introduced. Superdraw ST40-SL is a special lubricant for broaching and splining. It gives a massive step change in performance at one customer where using a standard broaching lubricant from a competitor was getting pick up after just a couple of components and subsequently poor tool-life. The competitor product was not a bad one with 50% chlorinated additive. However with the special new technology solid lubricant additives ST40-SL was able to give thousands of components without pickup.

Removal of Solvent Degreasing We have recently done work with a number of customers to allow for the removal of solvent degreasing. We have developed Superdraw SG (Rolls Royce approved lubricant) for a non-ferrous extrusion company. This lubricant allowed the company to switch to water degreasing as the Superdraw SG is completely removed in a water rinse, whilst the forming fluid gives the required high performance. We have developed Vansihing Oil WB4 for a automotive component manufacturer, this vanishing oil gives ultra-high performance to give deep drawing capability on high tensile steel, and also gives non-oily residues. We have developed a tube filling resin which is effective and can be removed with water after processing.

New technology water soluble lubricant Another technology leap has been obtained with Superdraw SG-K, based on the advanced technology of Superdraw SG (Rolls Royce Approved Lubricant) but with the addition of newly developed water soluble solid lubricants. This chlorine-free, sulphur-free, phosphorous-free lubricant offers spectacular deep-drawing lubricant performance giving performance similar to that of highly chlorinated oils. Trials at a local pressing company showed SG-K to have at least the same performance as a highly chlorinated neat forming oil.

One of our key strengths is finding new ways of enhancing production at our customers by applying our significant strength and understanding of lubricant chemistry and applications. We take a holistic approach to find ways to optimise process. We have many examples of considerable success in doing this, many of these successes are in metal forming and drawing applications.
