Irmco Advanced Lubricant Technologies, Evanston, IL, a manufacturer of synthetic lubricants, has introduced a new oil-free product that it describes as “affordable but that also can be used for multiple applications.” Dubbed Irmco Fluids 323-M80, the medium-viscosity, highly dilutable product is easily removed with a plain water wash. Even at low concentrations, 323-M80 reportedly provides uniform wettability and superior corrosion protection. Typical applications include medium- to light-duty stampings using lighter gauge materials. The lubricant is best suited for ferrous alloys.
Irmco offers a complete series of formulations within the 323 product category, with medium to high viscosity and offering varying degrees of protection, for easily formed parts as well as challenging draws.
