Oil-Free Multipurpose LubricantOctober 1, 2012
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, Fluids 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.Irmco Advanced Lubricant Technologies: 800/323-2933; www.irmco.com
