Metalforming Lubricants for High-Strength Steels

February 1, 2008

With higher-strength steels, metalforming lubricants face increasing challenges. Dual-phase high-strength steels increase in yield strength as strain increases during the forming process. Drawsol lubricants from D.A. Stuart Co., Warren-ville, IL, includes products developed to reduce the abrasive effects of friction that occur during the forming of high-strength steel, while at the same time imparting corrosion protection for the workpiece.
